I grew up before fast food...we DID have drive in places I remember, A & W Rootbeer, and Foster Freezes . I remember Bob's Big boy too, but you went IN and ordered.
None of the food from these places came FAST, like today. And may have been alot healthier, I don't know.
The other thing is, as a kid, we had CHORES, NO TV, NO computers, and were mostly outdoors playing....burned off what we ate, unlike kids today.
But this article is SO right on, about how America has gained, except for the fact along with this time line, was the DECREASE in exercise....Schools no long REQUIRE P.E. for graduation!!! BIG factor in fattening up everyone in America.
