More than 1 in 3 adults eat fast food on a given day, said a survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The study suggested that fast food consumption tends to dwindle with age, as that number fell to under 38 percent for those in their 40s and 50s.

The study, by CDC's National Center for Health Statistics (you can read it in full here), found that nearly 40 per cent of Americans admit to eating fast food every day.

"The unique feature of NHANES-and that's what it's usually referred to-is that it collects both physical examination data in addition to interview data", Fryar said.

'So by exposing their children to fast food early on, they're getting kids into unhealthy patterns from a young age, ' she said.

They also reported that as American adults aged, the percentage of daily fast food consumption lessened.

Fast food consumption also varied by race, with black adults eating the highest amount at 42.4 percent. The team also noticed a difference between men and women: 37.9 percent of men consumed fast food but only 35.4 percent of women did. Often, doctors warn patients from consuming too much fast food for fear of health problems that could arise from eating too much of it to the detriment of healthier alternatives, like fruits and vegetables. On a typical day, 22.7 percent of Americans get their breakfast from a fast-food outlet.

Among those whose family income was less than or equal to 130% of the federal poverty line (which was set at $11,770 for a single person or $24,250 for a family of four in 2016), 31.7% ate fast food on a typical day. Among all adults, a higher percentage of men (37.9%) than women (35.4%) said they ate fast food on a given day.

That 91% was an increase from 79% of 771 parents in a 2010 survey and 83% of 835 parents in a 2013 survey, according to the Rudd Center report. When asked by researchers, 37 percent of adults said they'd eaten fast food at least once over the past 24 hours.

"These findings remind us that fast food companies have figured out a way to conveniently fit into our daily routine, despite their [products'] negative health implications", Boehmer said.

"When we see news clips of a shark swimming near a beach, it scares us into not going near that beach", Weinandy said. "However, what we should be scared of is double cheeseburgers, French fries and large amounts of sugary beverages", Weinandy said. "I see many people who are successful at this, though, when they take a couple of hours on the weekend, and again midweek, to prep food and then plan ahead just a little to take some things with them".
