Portion size rant, a followup

A while ago, I wrote about encountering someone in McDonalds who ordered a 1500-calorie breakfast, with a rant about how we as a society have come to think that this is a normal portion size.

This morning, I was in McDs grabbing my usual Monday morning McMuffin, and as I was waiting for my food a tray passed by my eyes. It contained a McGriddle, two burritos, a hash brown, and a large soda. You can probably guess what's coming next-- I looked up, and it was the same person.

As before, I'm not criticizing her as an individual so much as I am pointing at an industry and a society that encourages people to eat this way.
