Nearly one-third of the meals that Americans eat are prepared away from home. As commutes get longer, schedules get busier, and families are increasingly exhausted, the need for convenient meals often overrides concerns of health and expenses. The modern American lifestyle is finally catching up with us, though. According to a 2016 report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 71% of U.S. adults are overweight or obese.
Obesity in America has increased as restaurants—fast-food or otherwise—have proliferated. Before the 1990s, restaurants were largely reserved for special occasions or perhaps a weekly treat. Think pizza or Chinese food on Friday night or a birthday celebration at your favorite little Italian eatery. Most families, regardless of household income, ate out infrequently. With the rise of family-casual dining in the ’90s, that all began to change. As dual-income families became more common, more consumers sought the convenience of dining out.
Restaurant chains like Olive Garden, Applebee’s, and the Ninety Nine catered to the growing middle class, offering moderately priced meals and children’s menus. This was great for parents slogging through long commutes from suburbs to cities and facing weekends and evenings packed with sports practices and other family obligations. While family-casual chains offered a nice dining atmosphere that mimicked eating at home, the food was unlike most home-cooked meals. It was generally higher in fat, sodium, sugar, and calories than what mom or dad would make.
According to a 2016 study by the Journal of Academy and Nutrition Dietetics, an average restaurant meal is around 1,200 calories. Sit-down restaurants can actually be more unhealthy than fast-food ones. Consider that the average American eats out four to five times a week, then add in other convenient junk food snacks, and the number of calories the average adult consumes shoots well past the recommended daily amount of 2000. Over time, this adds extra pounds and problems like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer.
