    Soda's the obvious one. They sell like 7 ounce cans now for what used to be the price of a liter bottle.
    Snack bags like potato chips are another one.
    And I saw a Subway ad recently for $6 subs that are 6 inches long vs. in the 2000s when you had $5 footlongs.
    It's the only option fast food places have to keep revenue up when their customer bases decline, and customer bases have been declining a bit recently. Part of it is people feeling like they can't afford to eat out as much anymore because their annual raises are getting smaller and costs of goods and rent are increasing. But part of it is also people getting more health conscious with the population aging. There haven't been as many new kids getting born so the average age is going up. People in general are older now, and older people are more likely to start worrying about their health and maybe try to cut out fast food.

      People were way less health conscious in the 20th century but they're way fatter now, something doesn't add up.

        I wouldn't necessarily say that. In some specific ways *some* people today are aware of some health issues people a century ago weren't.
        But to answer your underlying implied question of what changed, that's thoroughly known already. It's not less physical activity (one commonly claimed explanation). It's not the kind of food changing. It's simply people eating more calories. And a lot of people who eat more calories know doing that isn't healthy. But much like a drug addict they decide to do it anyway because the sense of reward gets ranked as more important in the moment than practicing restraint for some less directly enjoyable and more gradual and boring future sense of better health.
        >Increased energy intake appears to be more than sufficient to explain weight gain in the US population. A reversal of the increase in energy intake of ≈2000 kJ/d (500 kcal/d) for adults and of 1500 kJ/d (350 kcal/d) for children would be needed for a reversal to the mean body weights of the 1970s.

            I have two counterarguments for that. The first one is in the linked article. They specifically checked if physical exertion changes could account for the obesity epidemic and found that it didn't.
            The second is anecdotal. My dad fell for the "you can eat excessively as long as you stay physically active" meme back when I was a kid. He was obese but walked more than anyone I've ever known. He liked going to hiking trails for vacations and he walked miles around the local neighorhood each day without fail. Didn't save him from type 2 diabetes and didn't make him not be obese. He had to eat fewer calories after getting type 2 diabetes to solve for that.

            Walking burns practically zero calories. For every mile it's like <100kcal, worthless exercise. You need to actually run/swim/whatever gets your heart rate up to aerobic performance levels.

    That's a Grand Mac on the left. They were available a couple of years ago and cost more. The Big Mac size change was in the 1970s, and it only happened once, when they got rid of the Big Red Cube container.

    Big Macs haven't been 50¢ since the 60s, which when adjust for inflation would be like $6-7. In 1980 it was around $1.75, or about $7 in 2024. And also, you're really working in bad faith saying Big Macs are eight bucks on average, that's the upper limit in the most expensive places. In most parts of the US they're <$7.
