According to a Gallup poll, fast food is still a staple of the American diet. In comparison with previous years, Americans are slightly reducing their fast food intake but few are failing to eliminate it entirely. A mere 4 percent of people admitted avoiding fast food completely.
28 percent of Americans dine at fast food restaurants at least once per week, while 16 percent visit McDonald’s, Burger King, Pizza Hut and equivalent restaurants several times per week. 33 percent of people admitted paying a visit at least once or twice a month.
Fewer Americans now eat fast food weekly than did so in 2006, though generally, the numbers are not a great improvement on a decade ago. The majority of Americans still cherish the low price, taste and convenience of fast food.
