How frequent do Aussies go fast food diners, and does this have any effect on their health?

Researches show that the more frequent they go and eat in fast food, the higher the rate of obesity. This is according to the study conducted by Roy Morgan.

The report cited that in three years time until the first quarter of this year, there are 43 percent of adults in Australia who haven't gone to fast food store within a month's time.

On the same duration, there are 27 percent of the residents said they had gone to a fast food restaurant from one up to four times, which is still considered as minimal visitation.

This minimal visitation from the frequency of five and nine was based on the 17 percent of the persons who have been asked. On the other hand, the 13 percent that visited a fast food store said they ate more than 10 times in a month's duration. And this has been considered as very frequent visitation.

As per what Roy Morgan reported, there is a slight or perhaps no difference at all, in comparison with overweight people who haven't gone to a fast food outlet against those who ate more than four times in a month's time. These people are of all ages.

On the other hand, very frequent visitation tremendously increases the similarity of being obese on people, regardless of the age.

This covers the 11 percent rate increase for ages from 18 to 24 years old and 15 percent rate increase on people who are 65 years old and above.

"These numbers revealed that frequent fast food restaurant eater that visits more than 10 times in a month is mostly likely the same to a double-digit rate increase of being obese," as Michele Levine reported, the chief executive officer of Roy Morgan Research.

She even added another fact that people who love home delivery can be dangerous to the health of Australians.

"Not that surprising there is few community issue that fast food outlets must include in their home delivery to their having-here or take out choices, as per the recent report, frequent fast food eating habit can increase at a certain level and can eventually increase as well, the rate of obesity of the person."
