The Fast Track to Weight Gain...

Hitting the drive-through every once in a while probably
won't lead to a supersize you, but make those cheeseburger
runs a habit and you'll see the evidence on the scale. On
average, people tend to be about 1.5 pounds heavier for
every fast-food meal they eat per week, according to a new
study from Temple University. Researchers found that people
who ate fast-food meals three to six times a week had a body
mass index (BMI) nearly a full point higher than the BMI of
people who rarely downed the fatty fare. Ask yourself: Is not
having to wash a few dinner dishes worth the extra weight?
