Chick-fil-A was rocketed into the middle of the battle over same sex marriage when CEO Dan Cathy said he believed in the "Biblical" definition of marriage. This was met with a firestorm as groups organized protests against the restaurant and others organized an appreciation day in support of Chick-fil-A. 

But most people ignored one major point... what all this fast food does to your health and your waist-line. Weight loss coach Charles D'Angelo has endorsements from Bill Clinton and Richard Simmons among many others.
