You don't have to be an Olympic athlete...

... to eat like one.

At least that's what McDonald's current advertisement says.

What's most disturbing about this ad is that you know it (will) work. People may know that world class athletes don't train on a diet of McD's, but will likely be encouraged by the phrase.

It's just sad.

And disturbing.

We pay for our bad health twice: once when we heavily subsidize the food industry by providing the agribusinesses with incredibly cheap corn, and then we pay higher health care costs on the other end when we eat our way to death (diabetes, heart disease, etc.)
