Americans getting fewer calories from fast food
February 21, 2013 (WLS) -- Fewer Americans are getting their calories from fast food.
Data from a government study released Thursday shows adults get about 11 percent of their calories from burgers, pizza, and fries and other fast food. That's down from 13 percent in 2006.
But it's not because of just health concerns. Americans have less money, so they're eating more meals at home.
