Is like if they try to fool people by showing that skinny people is into the fast foods lifestyle.
I honestly see it as an insult for not showing the reality of the situation.

As humans we are attracted to things we cannot be. Plus size people are awesome and there is always the say "Don't judge the book by it's cover"
In a way I think it is a marketing scheme to make it seem less harmfull. If there were obese and plus size people within fast food commercial it would show directly that the food they sell isn't completely healthy. But however when advertised with fit people automatically mentally it makes it seem less harmfull. Also we live in a sensitive world these days. If fast food commercials did have obese people the company would be dealing with a lot of hate comments on social medias also lots of misunderstandings.

That doesn't attract a lot of customers. If I have a business, I want to maximize the amount of customers I have. If I put on an ad that sends the message "out of shape people like this", I'll have almost no customers.
Besides that, the way a person's shape is shouldn't really matter in these commercials. Average and skinny people eat fast food all the time. In fact, the 'average body' look is the average customer. I work as a fast food manager and I can say honestly that we get a large range of customers, and only a handful are in noticeable bad shape.
I'm thinking more like a warning from the Surgeon General in the corner of the screen. "Caution, may cause obesity, type II diabetes, bowel cancer, morbid obesity, gastrointestinal reflux disease, etc.
Big business is poisoning you for profit, and not just the fast food companies but nearly ALL food producers. In addition to the added salt, sugar and fat, there are more than 8000 food additives used in the food industry---most of them unnecessary to your well-being. This does not include the dozens of pesticides.
