On any given day in the United States, more than a third of American citizens consume fast food, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That means that more than 84 million Americans eat fast food daily!

Not only is that unhealthy, but it’s costly as well, as the average American will spend $1,200 annually on fast food, about 10% of their income.
