born_yesterday: Harbinger of the Doomed Rat: It's not your imagination. Eating healthy is more expensive, study says.

You were saying?

The GF and I have been making a lot of effort to eat healthier, and I have to agree 100%.  Fruits and vegetables cost a ridiculous amount per pound when compared to fast food (hence my celery joke), and in addition require a significant amount of meal planning to keep costs reasonable.


Once it becomes routine it will be easier and you will feel better, and save money. Really.
Example
Roast chicken for dinner. Enjoy with your choice of sides.
Left over meat can be used to toss with pasta, spinach, garlic, cheese, etc for another meal or used to make sandwiches for lunch. Chicken carcass in crockpot with water, leftover veg, spices will make a great stock or a base for soup that can be frozen.
Simple really.

Bullshait, it's about companies not willing to pay their employees more, so people eat where they can afford to.

Fast food is expensive as fark.  I can get lunch for $5 worth of makin's from the deli or $15 worth of crap from McTaco King.  Ten bucks a day times 250 work days a year equals a surprising amount of money for minimal extra work.


How the hell does someone spend $15 on one meal at a fast food joint?  I hit up McDs or Taco Bell and I get 1/3 of my daily caloric intake for less than $3.

Destructor: Wow. That list is the least surprising list in the history of lists. They're popular because they deliver the best value to the customer. How do I know that?

Capitalism, biatches. It works.


Capitalism works via advertising campaigns, brand loyalty, supply chain control, etc, but the intended image is of unprecedented value and fair, consistent quality. Capitalism doesn't always produce these results, but sometimes does, to some degree, give what is an acceptable balance of them. The primary value of retail is in convenience, which is in the packaging, the diversity of product selection, and in the proximity of location, and of course, in that all-powerful suggestive sell/upsell.

These businesses often have a presence in areas where the competition has been placed in a stranglehold, (Walmart anyone?) and even persons who would often frequent the competing brands are driven to assess the fuel efficiency and time available to do so. The location may be closely related to the workplace, to which many cannot afford to commute over significant distances either, nor can they always trivially find work in a saturated workforce. Also, carpooling may neccessitate that a participant in the pool drives an additional vast distance on a daily basis, possibly invalidating much of the purpose of doing so. So, location, at least to some degree, really "is everything".

Drink the KoolAid all you want. I do, too. Just acknowledge that it is what we're lapping up.

It was more of an opportunity to put in a dig at subby's trolling headline than your post. I actually didn't perceive your statement as coming down on one side or the other.

ive been eating bananas with chili since grade school always gave me one when it was on the lunch menu.  whether you actually put it in the chili or simply take a bite of banana and a spoonful of chili at the same time, it's damn tasty.  but we also had the best damn school chili.  seriously, when they made it people would buy it in bulk from the school system just for their homes.  im 40 years old and had some of it about 5 years ago.  still the same mix and flavors I remember from the ages of 8 to 17.

school lunches back then meant something.

Well, there are some problems with Walmart.

I wish there were CVS stores where I live to give Walgreens some competition.  Rite Aid is nice, but for some reason they don't have any pharmacies (you know, the actual pharmacy that can fill you prescription) open late.

No, you won't.  Healthy foods are more expensive.  That's not opinion, it's fact.  For example, your roast chicken?  That'll run you around $7 for one, maybe two meals, depending on the grocery store and size of the chicken.  Meanwhile, a loaf of cheap white bread, a jar of store-brand peanut butter, and some  flavored sugar paste jelly gets me around 7 or 8 meals for about $6.

I just don't get why people stand there and deny observable reality when it comes to the cost of eating healthy.  Shiat like Kraft Mac & Cheese is $69 a box, while that's what a single farking apple will cost me.  I can frequently get 10 meals worth of ramen for what it would cost to get a single meal's worth of frozen or fresh vegetables.  When you're dealing with families that have less than $1.50 per person per meal to spend, it's not possible for them to eat healthy, but they sure as hell can load up on the crap.  Hell, for a $1.50 per meal, you can hit McDonalds 3 times a day and get 2,000 calories.  That's impossible to do with healthy food at $1.50 per meal.

I created this alt just for this thread: As for #6, there are some that are convinced that a guy who claims to prefer small breasts is either lying in order to be non-conformist or secretly gay. So, no real problem with liking small breasts, just be aware that you will be judged by the mouth-breathers for it.


There is nothing wrong with small breasts if they are perky and attached to a woman who is happy to show them to you.  Large breasts can be appreciated regardless of the attitude or mode of dress of the woman carrying them around.

The things you mention are all positive by-products of capitalism at work bringing efficiency and success to the implementers. There are also a long string of failures that you seldom hear about. For example, companies that try to internally develop their own solutions to better compete, often lack the experience to do so adequately (in my experience, develop their own software).

As far as building stores go, that's an interesting story too. Sometimes a competing fast food store will build right next to another fast food store for the sole purpose of competing. (Capitalist version of trolling?) I don't quite get that, but it happens frequently. Winner? Consumers.

And as far as koolaid goes: Yeah. There are problems, nothing's perfect. But its pretty dang good compared to other systems. And my drink of choice? Refreshing Diet Coke Zero (ice cold). :-) (Also mixes good.)

Most people aren't willing to travel far for food unless it's exceptional so fast food places want to be where people are doing their everyday stuff, which means they all get right next to each other in the retail hubs.  And if you can't be the best, being next to the best allows you get some "the best place is too crowded" customers.

Capitalism requires a market to have competition, once a market devolves into oligopoly you no longer have capitalism. None of the companies compete with each other in any real sense, yes Target and Walmart are both big box retailers but there's essentially zero chance that one will put the other out of business in 5 years. They essentially compete with each other at the scale of countries which is a pointless scale. Capitalistic competition must be at the smaller scale of a small group of humans to work. You can also tell from their pay scales that they aren't capitalistic companies; they're corporatists through and through and that's a thoroughly anti-capitalistic philosophy.

Deedeemarz: Marshmallow Jones: Well considering there are far more of these McDonalds/BK etc restaurants than there are 'health food' restaurants, I dont know that any of this would be a surprise.

Having said that, Americans on the whole eat like slobs.

Note that the less money you make the more likely you are to eat at the fast food places: because restaurants that serve healthier fare also charge a higher price. And apparently people are too lazy to cook for themselves...


Then why are there McDonald's in many affluent areas if they're being supported mostly by poor people?

In downtown areas you see businessmen, gov'mnt buildings, lawyers having McDs in their weekly lunch rotation?

I'm just playing devil's advocate, but think that at this point it may have more to do with eating it a lot as a kid made a lot of people be loyal customers regardless of who you become and what your income is when your grown.

And I find the idea that monied people all/mostly eat healthy because they can afford it just a little silly. Life experience and the fact that monied people are not all walking around svelte and toned.

That explains it beautifully.

But take my niece. Sweet girl (oh my god, I was just thinking of her when she was 6. She's a freshmen in COLLEGE now... good god I'm old). McDonald's was actually something of a slight haul. But she would accept no substitute. Now that's a textbook example of successful targeted marketing.

Harbinger of the Doomed Rat: darch: Listen, I love a nice, sloppy burger just as much as the next red-blooded 'Murkin, but why is it that I somehow have managed to avoid setting foot in a McDonalds or Burger King in, say, 25 years? Because I find the food to be disgusting. Everyone knows it's utter garbage laden with chemicals and fillers, but they go anyway. It has nothing to do with "convenience"- there's small independent burger joints literally everywhere- it has EVERYTHING to do with Americans being willfully lazy and taking the path of least resistance.



Please, tell us all about those eeevil chemicals!!! in fast food.

Also, it has WAY less to do with Americans being "lazy" and a lot more to do with a whole lot of Americans being pretty damn poor.  Yeah, there are a number of local burger joints near me, but just one burger and a drink from one of those places would buy me a couple days worth of food at McDonalds or BK.  A good portion of the people in this country can't afford $10+ per person to eat out and that sure as hell isn't the result of them being lazy.

Okay, if you're fat (like me), eat less and exercise more. Is it really that much of a secret?

You can do this by using McDonalds or any fast food restaurant. Get a hamburger for $1 or 2. Skip the fries, get a glass of water.

Stop and think about that: That's a hell of a deal. For $2 you have an decent hot lunch.

Now, i if you need a sammich, you can't find a better value of dollars to calories in the modern world. I suggest you look into Wendy's Baconator.

Taco Bell, the "big stuft" (or whatever the hell they are called now) are $5.50 each, a hard shell taco is $1.49, a large drink is $2.50.  That's $15 right there, and it's all empty food so you're still hungry after all that.

Fark that.

It's been a long time since I got lunch at McDs, but a couple McMuffins and a coffee on a weekend roadtrip is a $10 proposition.

lindalouwho: Destructor: Does this really need to be said? Seriously? Again?

Okay, if you're fat (like me), eat less and exercise more. Is it really that much of a secret?

You can do this by using McDonalds or any fast food restaurant. Get a hamburger for $1 or 2. Skip the fries, get a glass of water.

Stop and think about that: That's a hell of a deal. For $2 you have an decent hot lunch.

Now, i if you need a sammich, you can't find a better value of dollars to calories in the modern world. I suggest you look into Wendy's Baconator.

A decent hot lunch?

What, are you about 2'8 and 45lbs?


Well. That there is how you fail in reading comprehension on a grand scale, folks.
