Up Sized Meals May Be Lighter On the Pocket Now but May Drain It Later

According to a recent study conducted by the researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison it was found that people who save on super-sized meal have more to pay later. // Super-sized meals which are offered at fast food restaurants have extra calories which help a person to gain more weight. This leads to higher costs for groceries, health care and more.

An average upsized fast-food meal costs about 67 cents more than a regular meal. But the extra calories would result in a substantial weight gain. Due to this there is an upward trend in their grocery bills, healthcare costs and even gasoline expenses. Rachel N. Close and Dr. Dale A. Schoeller published the study results in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition.

It was found that the upsized meal would cost an adult 5 cents more in fuel expenses, about 35 cents in overall food costs 82 cents to $6.64 more in healthcare cost. It is clear from their study that the more a person overeats, the greater the financial cost. Previously studies have focused on the fast foods and blamed them as a reason for American adults to be obese. But now this study views the problem in a very different aspect and highlights the financial effects of voluminous fast-food meals.
