Inspired by the "freaks you work with" thread. My coworker has the grossest eating habits! She comes in every morning with a McDonald's egg sandwich with bacon and a huge tub of coffee. At lunch she usually goes to the KFC down the block and comes back with a huge sandwich, fries, and a milkshake. Either that or she goes to the deli near our office and gets a fried fish platter.
I seriously hope she eats nothing but salad for dinner.
Oddly, she is quite trim.
How old is she, OP? She must have a high/fast metabolism & that generally changes by menopause, if not before.
Is she black, OP? A lot of black women in my building eat like that and are surprisingly slender.
[quote] At lunch she usually goes to the KFC down the block and comes back with a huge sandwich, fries, and a milkshake.
KFC doesn't sell milkshakes. And they don't really sell fries either (they sell potato wedges).
I eat nothing but fast food. I'm not fat.
How old is she? Her cholesterol and blood pressure must be through the roof.
Whatever -- KFC potato wedges. And some kind of slurpy dessert-ish drink, which I assume is a shake.
She's probably mid-30s.
She's probably thin because she shits her guts out from all that grease!
1/10. Not that it couldn't actually happen. But, OP clearly made this up to bitch about "fraus".
My blood pressure is perfectly normal, and my cholesterol is 160, for the record.
I eat at McDonald's, Taco Bell, Wendy's, KFC, Jack in the Box, and Burger King for virtually every meal. Sometimes I head to Red Robin for dinner, or maybe CiCi's Pizza Buffet.
OP, unless the two of you end up in some sort of Human Centipede situation, I fail to see how it concerns you.
Why should you care what the woman eats? Mind your own damn business?
My dad's girlfriend is like that. I've never seen her eat anything but candy and popcorn and she looks like Olive Oyl. She's in her 50's.
[quote]My blood pressure is perfectly normal, and my cholesterol is 160, for the record.
How old are you?
She's not a freak, OP. She is l-u-c-k-y
When she hits 40/45, she'll regret having eaten all that shit. She's going to hit the wall real hard. A bad diet takes years to do a lot of damage, but guaranteed, it DOES do a lot of damage. Then she will have to go on meds for the cholesterol and blood pressure and radically change the diet, all because she was too stupid to make healthy food choices.
Those foods aren't bad in moderation. But to eat them everyday is just asking for a heart attack in your late 40s, early 50s.
I know a white guy who eats like that. He's got some serious liver and pancreas problems. It sickens me to think about his diet.
[quote]How old are you?
I'm 46, but people always seem surprised to find out I'm in my 40's. They seem to think I'm late 30's.

I have co-worker who eats McDonalds every single day for lunch and is still rail thin. He's also a smug piece of shit AND a log cabin Republican. He's a DL's wet dream for nasty fodder.
I know a guy at work who eats Fast Food every day. He is probably in his 30s and he too is thin (and cute, and has a nice ass!)
Weight isn't everything. All that crap is not good for your body, the health effects will catch up to you eventually. Just because you look okay in the mirror doesn't mean you aren't hurting your body on the inside.
[quote]I'm 46, but people always seem surprised to find out I'm in my 40's. They seem to think I'm late 30's.
Then you're lucky to have those rare genetics that keep your blood pressure and cholesterol down despite the poor diet. You're a rare bird, indeed.
Lol @ busybody food Nazis.
OP, how about enjoying your own lunch instead of obsessing over someone else's lunch (because if you're studying her enough to know that not only does she eat "nothing but fast food", but also where she buys it, then you're obsessing)?
R25, ever work around someone who eats nothing but fast food?
That crap smells like sh*t, if he works close enough to her he can't avoid it. I worked around someone for a few years who did something similar and smelling that awful stuff was enough to make me never ever want to go near a fast food place.
I had a co-worker who didn't know how to cook. She grew up with a mom who didn't know how to cook. She doesn't eat fast food for every meal but every thing she eats is from a restaurant or a box or package.
Personally, I find that unfathomable. I am no fountain of healthy food either but I can't imagine eating fast , boxed and frozen foods every day of my life.
Yes, she is thin and healthy. She's in her late 20's.
OP, put an angry dachshund into a hotdog bun and leave it at her work station. She'll bite it thinking it's a hot dog, then the dachshund will attack. This way, they can't blame you.
Unless you have children and/or unlimited time on your hands......cooking is a waste of time.
I'm not talking about quickly grilling/broiling something or making a sandwich....
I'm talking about baking your own bread, multi-part recipe cooking - that kind of horseshit.
You eat it and crap it out in 12 hours. It's fuel. Who cares if it comes from a resturant or is prepared by the store, as long as it's not empty calories and greasy fast food all the time.
All of this "I grow my own herbs" is just bullshit to make yourself feel superior.
It makes me absolutely sick and gagging to read R10's litany of garbage food that he/she eats at every meal.
barf, so sickening and revolting
must be a form of mental illness and extreme laziness
True R29, although it can make things taste good. But yes, an indulgence and a time waster.
R30, you sound repulsive. I am practically puking reading your post.
I have a customer that comes into my work every 2 or 3 days and she always has a huge bag of fast food with her and always has an extra large milk shake. She's 64 yrs old but looks about 44) and she's super thin too, but her bottom teeth are rotten. I used to think she wore braces on her bottom teeth. She doesn't. They're just gray and rotting. She drives a brand new Mercedes (she's got her priorities straight)
R29, there are zillions of very quick things to make and cook at home.
You mention grilling or broiling. One can grill or broil and add quick vegetables and fruit.
Little time whatsoever.
Restaurant food often has a lot of unwelcome ingredients unless one is very careful to grab food from health food restaurants which would be mostly fine.
Maybe she drinks a lot of green tea.
"I'm 46, but people always seem surprised to find out I'm in my 40's. They seem to think I'm late 30's."
They're just being nice darling.
Sounds like many bulimics. The love to gorge on fast food.
Since when do they have milkshakes at KFC?
R30, I think the mental illness is yours.
Seriously, that over-reaction to an innocuous post on an internet message board by someone you don't know and will never meet... is just bizarre and over-the-top.
You should seek counciling.
R39, funny, you have absolutely no idea how sick mentally and physically, extremely lazy, uninformed, and misguided you are in a number of ways, as illustrated by your sickening, revolting eating habits of eating every meal at garbage fast food joint.
I know mental illness isn't a laughing matter, R40, but your post still made me giggle. Man, you have [italic]issues[/italic].
Thanks for confirming my diagnosis of you.
You should seek a remedial spelling class, fool.
you can eat a lot junk when you are younger. Not after 35.
They just opened a Shake Shack a block away from my office so I'm in serious danger of ending up like her.
I have a dear friend with the same diet. He's super skinny. He's also just had his 'first' heart attack in his early 40s, and has had a stent inserted.
I once ate a McDonalds breakfast. Hours afterwards I could still taste the oil in my palate. Dis-gusting.
I have a sister in her early 30s who looks like she's about 20. She's drop dead fucking gorgeous. She eats McDonalds, Taco Bell, Pizza, Diet Coke. and the main staple of her diet is Recees Peanut Butter cups. As Eddie would say she's "THIN AND GORGEOUS" Smokes too.
Oh she likes butter too. She'll keep a stick in her fridge and occasionally eat spoonful.
We are all going to die sometime whether we eat healthy or not, so why worry about. Eat what you want when you want cause you're only going to live once.
Yes, we are all going to die but we've got a much higher chance of dying unpleasantly from a lingering, chronic illness if we live on nothing but processed, fatty, fast food. I pity people who don't cook or who look at it as a chore (I guess I assume they're a bit slow and incompetent). My parents didn't cook (too poor and lazy) and I grew up on fast food. As soon as I moved out of home I started teaching myself to cook. Cooking can be a fun, social activity and home-cooked food tastes much nicer than anything from a restaurant. I'm no health-food tyrant and I'll happily snack on Reece's or whatever crap tickles my fancy that day, but my evening meals are cooked from scratch with plenty of fresh ingredients. People who eat nothing but junk must get accustomed to feeling like shit because too much fast food leaves me feeling nasty.
OP, I'd be jealous as well. Wish I could eat everything I fancy.
did none of you see the movie SuperSize Me? Within like 3 days of eating nothing but McDonald's food, the guy had a thickening of the arteries, extreme changes to his metabolism and cholesteroil through the roof. Regardless of how your friends/coworkers/people you think look 20 years younger than they are, they are killing themselves. So if Herb doesn't show up for work tomorrow, he's probably had a stroke.
How Fat is She?
r52 she's not fat at all.
The person at R10, R18, and R41 who is in his 40's is absolutely pitiful.
A person in one's 40's who eats every meal at a garbage fast food joint is an absolutely poor excuse for a human being and cannot even claim to be a fully functioning adult.
To be in one's 40's and unable to put together anything healthy to eat at home is a disgrace, slow, incompetent, retarded, and severly limited mentally.
I'm with R48. People can eat what they want; it's not my business, but for R29 to say cooking is a time-waster is just stupid.
How is preparing delicious and nutritious fuel for your body a waste of time? Do what you want; eat what you want. But do you go on threads about television, film and books and suggest those things are a waste of time? For that matter, DL is a waste of time.
I wonder what R29 does every waking minute that's so important to the world he can't cook a simple meal without feeling he should have used his time more effectively.
R55, saying it is a waste of time is:
1) just an excuse to cover not knowing how to put even the simplest of healthy items together at home to eat
2) a statement to try to cover up being extremely lazy
3) a statement to try to cover up being intimidated by meal making
4) a statement to try to cover being too lazy to even try
5) thinking that meal preparation is 'woman's work'
6) to try to cover up not even knowing where to begin
You fast food eaters must go through the drive-thru b/c all I have to do is smell that shit and I can't eat it.
R54, you are as wrong as you are judgemental. And that doesn't reflect well on you.
some people have a high metabolism
The notion that you can't eat healthy at fastfood is a lie.
McDonald's Grilled Chicken Southwest Salad. Yum.
I'll bet OP is the same person who started this thread -- the same obsession with fraus and their eating habits. Both threads mention egg sandwiches. And neither thread is believable.
R59, have you heard of heart disease, strokes, and heart attacks?
Heart disease is one of the most prevalent causes of death and incapacitation in the U.S.
Fast food which for the main part is comprised of garbage ingredients, extraordinarily high fat content (the wrong kind of fats), and very harmful ingredients devoid of any health benefits.
(no need to mention the 'salads' available, as most people who eat extensive fast food are not predominantly going for the salads)
OK now I've heard it all on Datalounge. How can fast food cut off your head?
R63, your intelligence is dazzling.
tr.v. in·ca·pac·i·tat·ed, in·ca·pac·i·tat·ing, in·ca·pac·i·tates
1. To deprive of strength or ability; disable.
tr.v. de·cap·i·tat·ed, de·cap·i·tat·ing, de·cap·i·tates
To cut off the head of; behead.
decapitation - execution by cutting off the victim's head
Have you all sat downwind from someone who eats fast food all the time?
Their farts could bring down an entire flock of birds! This IS a matter of grave concern!
OP, you act like your coworker is abnormal. This is very normal in America.
OP, what KFC serves Milkshakes? Are you making shit up? They don't have anything even remotely like a milkshake.
I hate to shock some of you, but way, waaaaaaay before fast food existed, many hard-working, natural-food-eating people just dropped dead from heart attacks and strokes.
The food trolls are in massive denial about both genetics and death; part of the baby boomer's complete self-absorption and control freak egoism.
I cook almost everything I eat. Every time I see a doc and take tests they all turn out neg.
Uh, KFC doesn't sell milkshakes. Nice try, OP.
Maybe she stops at another place on her way back to the office from KFC & gets a milkshake there.
The fact that people here actually can argue that KFC doesn't sell milkshakes is very telling.
The fast food defenders are like the freepers, they come out of the woodwork like roaches.
Today's word, boys and boys, is "Carcinogens."
R72 is one of those tedious asshats who thinks she's better than everyone else... probably brags about not watching TV too (while everyone else rolls their eyes behind her bitchy back)
[quote] eat at McDonald's, Taco Bell, Wendy's, KFC, Jack in the Box, and Burger King for virtually every meal. Sometimes I head to Red Robin for dinner, or maybe CiCi's Pizza Buffet. Just saying.
Yes but YOU are probably a man- your nasty behaviors & appearance (even if you're a fatty) doesn't interest OP.
Please understand the rules.
I just looked on kfc's website and sure enough, they do not sell milkshakes or desserts.
OP's been caught out. What kind of loser sits around making up stories about office fraus and fast food?
Both of my grandparents died of heart disease -- my gran at 68, my grandfather at 72. They never ate fast food in their lives. My mother has heart disease too, but she's 82, thanks to things like angioplasty, surgery and medication. She never ate fast food.
It's almost 100% genetics. My poor uncle went on a strict diet where he cut out anything with cholesterol and was absolutely miserable. His cholesterol levels never budged. He went back on anti cholesterol medication and ate what he liked, his level went way down.
My partner did the same thing. Claimed he wanted to go off anticholesetrol medication because of the cost, but I know it was so he could tell everyone how he was so healthy with his diet and workout routine. He wanted to be seen as some kind of fucking genius for figuring out what health regimen was perfect for him. Same result -- his level went sky high after discontinuing medication and trying to control with diet only. Oops -- not a genius after all.
The funny thing is, we don't even know if lower cholesterol prevents heart disease.
She probably has some seriously stanky dumps.
There's another frau in my office who goes to Subway every day for lunch and comes back with a hamburger, fries, and a milkshake.
If she's thin so what? BTW don't tell Morgan Spurlock! He thinks if anyone eats FF daily they'll be huge, but not so. It's all about the calories in and calories out. Stopping when full, etc.
This gross little midget I worked with at my previous job lived on Dr. Pepper and Burger King/McDonalds/Subway and cigarettes and was painfully thin. She was a little cunt. I hope she gets a heart attack.
I'll bet her shit stank to high heavens!
Are the people who eat this shit easy to work with or nice to people? I think fast food causes aggression, sulkiness, depression, etc. etc.
I've known people who eat nothing but crap their whole lives and have lived to be quite old and relatively healthy. My own brother has NEVER eaten a vegetable in his life. He lives on meat and potatoes and he's a slim and trim 72 year old who's never once been in the hospital or had any major medical problems.
If you're prone to having health problems you're going to have them no matter what you eat.
Weight is calories in vs. calories burnt so if you eat 2 regular fast food meals a day it won't make you overweight.
And the poster who said that you can be thin but unhealthy is totally right.
KFC website has Krushems which is a shake.. admittedly it's the uk website since I'm in the uk though. (see link)
r33 - her rotten teeth are from bulimia. The acid from the stomach bile constantly exiting over the teeth rots away at them.
So OP, are you in a country other than the US? Looks like you may not have made it up after all..
you can eat healthy at fast food restaurants.
The fatties get up in arms if you diss what they eat everyday. Mcd's, KFC, etc.. I'm not all highfalutin but I stopped eating that shit in my early 30's and put a litle thought and effort into what I eat.
