People can order dinky portions from McDonalds too. The hamburgers and value meal sandwiches. One can even go dirty keto and essentially just order a patty. But people still buy meals and Big Macs anyway. I think the Big Mac Jr. failed or something as well?Actually it really IS an American thing.... if you look at what "suggested" portions of most foods are compared to what you'll be served in an average restaurant here they're often at least double and sometimes triple (or more) the serving-size they should be to be "healthy".
OTOH when I go out to eat I WANT a huge portion of quality food for my money as I mentioned above and I'm pretty sure most people agree. (which is part of the problem!)
People need a mix of Dave Ramsey(establish a budget) and Eric the Car Guy/Scotty Kilmer(DIY prep) approach to their food choices. That'll do more than trying to control the supply side. I mean, it ultimately got through to me. Now, I even see $0.88 sweet potatoes as too expensive thanks to mom JUST SAYING IT IS--I am hopelessly suggestible.
