McDonald’s brings £4m a year to Bournemouth economy

Bournemouth Echo: LOVIN’ IT: McDonald’s in Bournemouth LOVIN’ IT: McDonald’s in Bournemouth

FAST food giant McDonald’s has said the company and its suppliers are worth £4m a year to the Bournemouth economy.

It published an independent report to mark its 40th anniversary in the UK, at the same time as announcing plans to create 8,000 jobs nationwide over the next three years.

McDonald’s opened its first Bournemouth restaurant on Old Christchurch Road in 1983. There are now four in the area, employing more than 250 people.

The report Serving the UK: McDonald’s at 40 was produced by Development Economics to assess the over-all contribution McDonald’s has made to the economy since November 1974.

It found the business and its supply were worth an estimated £2.5bn a year to the UK economy.

Bournemouth franchisee Tony Bennett began his McDonald’s career in 1984 and runs 10 restaurants across Bourne-mouth, Winchester, Basingstoke, Swaythling and Eastleigh, employing almost 600 people.

He said: “I am firm a believer that you need to be part of a community to be successful in that community.

“As such I am passionate about giving young people especially the chance to get workplace experience.

“We have a fantastic education programme in place that we have worked hard to build.

“This means that all of my people – from a crew member starting out in their first job to a restaurant manager – have the chance to learn whilst they earn.

“My ambition is to continue the great work that my teams are already doing in Bournemouth, from daily litter patrols to supporting larger scale community events for many more years to come.”

Gaining weight is all down to calorie excess and you won't gain much weight by eating a single McDonalds once a week. You need roughly an excess of 3500 calories to gain a pound. That means four big macs and four large fries to gain a pound of fat - that's assuming what you eat at McDonalds is in excess of your calorie requirements.

However, McDonalds is not appropriate food for people who are already overweight. You only lose weight by limiting calorie intake and it is difficult to do this when consuming calorie dense food.

If you think the human body can break the second law of thermodynamics (generally explained to most twelve year olds as 'the conservation of energy') then you are going to have to prove it. And if you succeed in proving it you are almost certain to get a Nobel prize for it since you will have discovered a new and unique class of systems in the universe.

Simply stated: calories out minus calories in equals calories stored. In some cases these are stored as muscle but for most fully grown adults who don't exercise hard they are stored as fat (with the exception of the tiny amount that is stored in the liver and muscles as glycogen). You won't find any serious scientist who disagrees with this, though you will discover the odd diet-book-lunatic like Zoe Harcombe who will tell you otherwise.

Calories are all that matters when it comes to gaining or losing weight.

Yes, 4000 calories from McDonalds is EXACTLY THE SAME as 4000 calories from fruit and veg in terms of weight gain or loss. That is just basic physics. The point is that you would have to eat 1500 grams of broccoli (no easy feat) to get the same number of calories as in a big mac. Therefore broccoli is of some use for weight loss or preventing weight gain. The value of some vegetables is in the extra phyto-chemicals they contain: anthocyanins, glucoraphanin etc. - an issued unrelated to calories.

However, protein is important in controlling appetite, so meat consumption (the leaner the better) is helpful for weight loss and preventing weight gain. Anyone interested might want to google 'protein leverage hypothesis'.

Body wraps can't help weight loss since they don't affect calories burned or calories consumed. I have no idea what is in slimfast, but any diet will work if it causes you to consume fewer calories than you burn and any diet will fail if it does not do this.
