You might try measuring:


Blood pressure changes

Pulse rate

waist measurement

belly measurement

BMI (body mass index)

Percent body fat

You could have them fill out a mood scale to see if the food they eat impacts their mood in anyway.

You could study how many times they deficate

You could do all manner of things...


The study can only be exciting if you make it so! :)

There is no research here - eating poorly causes poor health, it has nothing to do with whether or not it is fast food, except that fast food tends to be less healthy. Try eating at a chain restaurant (Chili's, Olive Garden, Outback) for every meal, or even just one meal, but get an appetizer, entree, and dessert, and you'll see that people who eat unhealthily, are unhealthy.
