Zoning Out Fat in L.A.

Because the definition of “fast food” is somewhat vague, restaurants like Marie Callender’s (which specializes in pies and hearty fare) can still open, yet mom-and-pop take-out restaurants and other local establishments can still be banned. Exceptions have also been carved out for “healthy” fast-food restaurants like Subway, which does have its six subs under six grams of fat but also serves several 12-inch sandwiches with more than 1,000 calories.

Read the rest of Sara Wexler's article in The American on the decision to limit fast food restaurants in south Los Angeles.
