According to a new report from the CDC, about 85 million Americans eat fast food on any given day with men eating more of it overall than women.
"What surprised me was the finding that income was positively associated with more fast food", said Dr. Lawrence Cheskin, an associate professor and director of clinical research at the Global Obesity Prevention Center at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, who was not involved in the new report.
Fast food has been linked to many health issues beyond weight gain. The most common meal for fast food intake was lunch (43.7 percent), followed by dinner (42.0 percent), then breakfast (22.8 percent) and snacks (22.6 percent). Another 22.8 percent get a snack from a fast-food joint.
When it came to gender, men were most likely to buy fast food for lunch, while women would purchase it as a quick and cheap snack.

Anything participants categorized as "restaurant fast food/pizza" was included in the total.
The data show that the popularity of fast food varies by racial and ethnic group.
Weinandy agreed that America has to wean itself off its fast food habit. The survey results suggest an answer: time.
She believes that policymakers, doctors and health food advocates need to "beat fast food companies at their own game" in order to turn things around.
According to the findings, the more money someone had, the more they were likely to eat fast food. Asian adults ate the least amount of fast food every day at 30.6 percent.
