Why do the British think ALL Americans LOVE fast food?

An American asked a question about trying to find something to eat in England because he didnt like the English food (no offense, but England is famous for having horrible food) & everyone just lashed out at him. Some said things like " we have Mcdonalds & KFC & all the things you Americans like to eat".... show more An American asked a question about trying to find something to eat in England because he didnt like the English food (no offense, but England is famous for having horrible food) & everyone just lashed out at him. Some said things like " we have Mcdonalds & KFC & all the things you Americans like to eat". Ok, Americans do not constantly eat fast food. Most Americans that eat fast food only eat it when they are in a hurry. Over lunch break or on long car trips or something of the sort. That is why its called FAST food. But we certainly do not DINE at fast food places. Its not like you pack up the entire family & say to the wife "Honey, lets go to Mcdonalds tonight". We dont do that, so why do the British think that? The last time i ate fast food as a first choice place to eat i was a teenager. I do realize that England is a country that condemns Americans for fast food, but the Brits use heavy cream, butter and way more fats than anyone in the US would ever dream of.
Update: I dont know where you live, but the people where i live look ok to me. There are states that have more fat people than others & who says fast food is never ok? My doctor did not tell me that. Which doctor told you that? Doctor Phil? Anyhow. burgers are not the only think they have available at fast food places.
