    1 thought on “Fast Food Vindication”

    1. For many years the fast food industry, headed by McDonald's, has been the whipping boy de jour for many, receiving criticism for everything from poor working terms and conditions to their effects on modern-day diets. True or false? Maybe like most things it is something in-between.Here is a book that takes a bit of a contrary view. Those seeking a conspiracy will note that the author had worked at McDonald's for seven years (as a real estate manager) before changing careers, getting a degree in [...]

    2. Lisa Tillinger Johansen's book Fast Food Vindication seeks to put fast food in better place than Fast Food Nation and Supersize Me. Johansen is a former McDonald's corporate employee who left the company to earn a Masters in Science in nutritional science and works as a registered dietitian. To be fair, I am a strict vegetarian who avoids all fast food and rarely eats out. I am in the opposite corner than Johansen on this issue.I will give Johansen credit for making a stand for personal responsi [...]

    3. I am so glad there is a book like this in print. Honestly! I am like the majority of Americans--I love fast food. My daughter used to drag me to McDonald's at least once a week. And when I was overweight (and obese--Yikes!), I didn't think twice about eating all the unhealthy calories. But then I began my healthy eating plan (which I still basically follow), and I discovered that fast food did not always mean it was unhealthy. And about that same time, the movement to crush the fast food industr [...]

    4. Like most, I have some pounds that I'd like to lose. And like most, I do eat fast food (pizza is my favourite!) so I thought this would be an interesting book.Unlike most books, the author isn't against fast food restaurants. In fact, before she went back to school in her 40s to become a dietitian, she worked for McDonalds and still has lots of good things to say about them.Fast food restaurants get such a bad wrap. Her points about them are valid. In the first place, you don't have to go to on [...]

    5. ** This review, as well as many more, can also be found on my blog, The Baking Bookworm (thebakingbookworm).Note: My sincere thanks to NetGalley and J. Murray Press for providing me with a complimentary e-book copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.My Thoughts: My devoted blog followers know that normally I'm not an avid reader of non-fiction. It's not that I don't care for the genre but if I'm going to read a non-fiction book I have to really be interested in the topic. When I saw t [...]

    6. I chose "Fast Food Vindication" because I dislike the Food Police mentally that has become part of our current-day culture. No food or drink is immune to criticism, limitations or banning. There is little agreement and frequent discourse on the good, the bad and the forbidden. Along with the FP element, the "all big business is bad" crowd cries foul at every successful purveyor. Author Lisa Tillinger Johansen offers an articulate and substantiated rebuttal.Johansen is up front with the informati [...]

    7. I know that it was supposed to be a serious book. The problem was the way the author went about trying to convince people that fast food is healthy. Here's a news flash. It isn't. No matter how you try to sugar coat a lite fare menu, you just can't make it healthy when the sodium content is still too high for many people. I agree with the author's view that fast food is here to stay, but I disagree that it must be at the large corporations she mentions in her books. In Southern California, there [...]

    8. ***Advanced copy provided by NetGalley***I confess, I went into this well-armed with nutritional information and skeptical of its message. What I found at the end, however, was that behind its sensationalist title, the argument isn't new. As the author points out, fast food isn't inherently bad for you, if you make an effort to order from the "healthy" menu. Well, of course, no food will individually make us fat, and the choice to eat something is ultimately our own. As a nutritionist, the autho [...]

    9. This is a realistic book looking at what the author considers the "bad rap" that fast food has and continues to receive. I know that this book was supposed to try and convince me that fast food can be good for you but you will never convince me that this is the case. While I can agree that fast food alone isn't the only reason for the obesity issue that is across the nation but it does play a factor in the issue as well. No matter how you spin it, fast food has high sugar, fat and sodium content [...]

    10. With obesity growing in epidemic proportions in the US, can one really have a healthy meal at a fast food restaurant? Johansen says you can. She admits early on that she worked for McDonalds in their real estate division. But I still think her book has good information for us. As she says, it is ultimately up to each one of us to choose the right meals, no matter the restaurant. We can frequently go to web sites to find nutritional information, so it is not that we are ignorant of the calories i [...]

    11. A realistic look at the chaos that has become the fight over the American diet. she reminds you of what you already know and makes observations that most wouldn't think of. She even includes reasearch most wouldn't hear about. She doesn't demand immediate changes, but suggests small changes all around to become healthier. There are many observations and ideas she shares that I have incorporated into my eating habits and will continue to use for many years.

    12. Fast food vindication is a look at the positive aspects that corporations such as McDonald's bring to their communities. The research shown in the book pokes a great number of holes the the theories espoused by "documentaries" like Super-Size Me and points out the flaws in their research. A must read for anyone who is looking for a rebuttal to aggressive anti-fast food arguments.

    13. This is a really good book to make you take a hard look not just at those drive through runs before soccer practice but those "special" dinners out and even what you are making on your own table. Full review on paperpossebookblog
