"I think McDonald’s in particular is doing an excellent job. They have added fruit, salads and juices to their menu along with encouraging exercise and athletic activities. As a physician, I strongly believe that you can eat whatever you want as long as you live an active lifestyle and exercise regularly." -- Dan M., New York
"No one makes you go to McDonald's you need to think for yourself."
-- N.B., New York
"No. As long as you can get a day’s worth of calories and fat in just one meal they will still have work to do. Fast food restaurants need to make all of their food healthier, not just offer a few healthy choices. On another note if they didn’t have drive-thru we would consume less oil and burn more calories by going inside to order."
-- Brandon R., Missouri
"I believe that the fast food companies could have moved faster at getting rid of trans fat. It would be really neat if they started offering healthier choices. I think that they should start offering fruit smoothies. You see all these smoothie chains popping up everywhere. Maybe the fast food companies should try something new."
-- Marijo R., Ohio
"You do not have to go there if you don't think it is good for you."
"With all the studies conducted one should come to the conclusion fast food is not a healthy alternative; therefore, if a person ignores these studies they only have themselves to blame. The fast food industry should not have to modify their ingredients, if you think it is bad for you do not eat it. I do believe the fast food industry is attempting to make their food healthier, however, if they modify it too much, it will ruin the taste." -- Lewis G.
