Even as McDonald’s Corp. (MCD), Yum! Brands Inc (YUM). and Domino’s Pizza Inc. (DPZ) work to placate anti-obesity advocates at home, they’re taking high-calorie offerings to other parts of the globe and hooking a new generation in emerging markets. Their target customers, often part of a rising middle class with a more sedentary lifestyle, are in turn putting on the pounds.

Yeah, I saw that when I was going to India on business a lot. I DID have a Chicken McTikka sandwich once, but otherwise I lived on wonderful Indian food. Pizza Hut is big there, and in Delhi they had Lay's Potato Chip billboards all over.
Another problem in India is that more women are working outside the house and even if you're ambitious enough to make things ahead and freeze them, the power supply is unreliable so you could lose all the stuff in your refrigerator during a power outage. So, fast food is easier. I should also mention that men in India are miles behind men in the US when it comes to contributing to chores such as cooking in 2-income households.
Yes but often ingredients and offerings are not as bad/ and or more varied other places. I'm not saying its always a great thing, and generally I'd rather go to local places. However we took the nephews to Pizza Hut in Romania, and you would not recognize it as a Pizza Hut here. I've also read articles that compare ingredients and often other countries use more real ingredients, fewer chemicals, less corn products, etc. in their fast food.

Quit when you’ll be mediocre, when the returns aren’t worth the investment, when you no longer think you’ll enjoy the ends. Stick when the dip is the obstacle that creates scarcity, when you’re simply bridging the gap between beginner’s luck and mastery.The Dip, Seth Godin
In all circumstances "Be strong and courageous" (Josh.1:9)
Every day stand guard at the door of your mind, and you alone will decide on what thoughts and beliefs you let into your life. Tony Robbins
