I don't think it's very helpful to be showing a big McDonald's ad on a healthy diet website. I don't need to see a Big Mac staring me in the face while I'm trying to avoid eating unhealthy. I don't need McDonald's coupons and I doubt anyone else visiting this site is in need of ridiculous calories and heart killing salt! Oh and I just noticed the big KFC one too...right beside the Subway. Seriously, this is a diet site...WHY??

For the same reason that there are Dunkin Donuts, or Baskin Robbins shops located in the same shopping center and strategically located near all the gyms. They know their audience, and our weakness. Gotta love capitalism.

The ads may be fed to you by an ad server, such as Google, not directly by the FatSecret team. The ads are sometimes based on the user's browsing history and sometimes based on the current web page. Or they can be random.

Most of the ads you see are in response to where you or someone who uses your computer have been recently. I get ads from where I have searched or looked....I've never seen McDonalds, or subway or kfc. My screen shoes Amazon and zulily.

Yes. Why wouldn't they put fast food ad's on this site?

Bic Mac. Bad taste though.

I still enjoy this story; lowered cholesterol, figured out it isn't where you eat but it is what you eat.
