Fatties don't eat at McD's all the time because they don't have access to healthy food alternatives. They absolutely do, even within McD's itself.

You keep harping that people are being tricked, and they don't know that what they eat is unhealthy. But that's BS. The nutritional info is always available for everything they serve, for those that want to find out. What else do you want? A popup disclaimer every time somebody orders a Big Mac and large fries and coke that says "Hey fatty, you sure you know how many calories that is?" Come on.....
I didn't say get rid of McDonald's. I am talking about increasing transparency. People know fat content and calories. Do they know how local the meat is, what parts they're using, etc...? Do you really believe that all eaters are educated enough to know that many salads are also unhealthy?

You make a really huge assumption that all consumers are health educated. And that just knowing fat or sugar content is enough. More importantly, that there aren't consumers who try to eat healthy, but honest to god think a trip to panera for a sandwich and a diet coke is healthier.
