I'll usually have it 2-3 times during the week and another 2-3 times on the weekend. Always have breakfast at McDonalds on Saturday or Sunday morning.
What a glamourous life you live, op.
@ 10-2-& 4 daily w/ a Dr. Pepper
It's been a good 20 years.
Well, aren't you just "all that" r1.
Once during the week, and a second time if I go out on the weekend.
An egg McMuffin about once a month. That's about it.
I hate to ask this, OP. But how FAT are you?
Rarely to never.
I get Taco Bell about twice a month. I am on a really tight budget, it's not that I am against fast food.
I'll do the drive thru for an EggMcMuffin now and then. I like them if I know I have a long day ahead and no lunch scheduled.
Not fat at all r8, just because you eat fast food doesn't mean you are fat.
Like chains? Never, really. But crappy Chinese take out or pizza at a deli, once or twice a month
Yes R1 you SIMPLY MUST come to one of our baked potato bras
Really? How sad for you, OP. McDonald's is horrifying garbage. Please treat yourself to something worthwhile.
Once a month, or maybe twice at most. I'd like to eat it more often, but I don't want my doctor to yell at me.
Once every other month.
OP, that's a lot of fast food. And McDonalds? That's kind of the worst.
I don't eat it much, maybe once every few months.
It sure doesn't taste the same as it did 20 yrs ago.
I never eat fast food. It's simply not healthy. I don't even eat fast food salads. Why? I could never believe that they would be clean? These people are making minimun wage.I doubt they spend alot of time caring. I know I wouldn't. Stay away from fast food. No reason not too. Tossing a salad together is just so easy. No reason not to do it.
Rarely, but I have to try those new Filet o' Fish McBites from McDonalds.
Hey R11 --
Can you say "Egga Muffin?"
What about "wimpy, wamby, wahmby?"
Not in over 10 years after a road trip stop at Burger King ended up causing explosive diarreah so bad I had to stop driving and check into a hotel.
What qualifies as "fast food". Is applebys fast food. Are salad bars? Is red robin? If I make a burger and fries at home is it better thah eating at Subway?
That was easy.
Hardly ever. There aren't any on my normal routes. I get prepared food from the deli at the grocery store though.
I can't resist the February footlong specials at Subway.
More often than the OP. Love it, so why not do it?
Probably once every couple of months I'll buy an order of large fries at McDonalds with a side of mayo, feeling guilty about it before and not particularly great about it after. Seeing who works there is always a little startling and depressing (in terms of race, social inequality, etc) and reminds me of how the modern American economy functions.
That's insane to me OP, I haven't eaten that much fastfood since I was in highschool.
I eat out fairly often, but there are tons of local businesses that make much better food for the same price as those fast food combos or barely more so much better food and my money stays local.
Do you really live in such a food desert that your best option is freakin McDonalds?
Almost never. I just don't like it much.
A couple of times of a month I get a serious craving for Wendy's spicy chicken sandwich (yum!!!)but that's about it.
Once every two weeks.
A fast food breakfast sandwich twice a week. Either McD or Dunkin Donuts.
Take out pizza every Saturday afternoon with a volunteer high school program I work with.
Usually one weekday, I'll have a great burger and fries lunch at Five Guys.
Watch the documentary Super Size Me.
I can count on one hand the number of times in a year I eat fast food.
I rarely get food from any of the typical chains. I don't necessarily object to it; it just doesn't appeal to me. If others want to eat at Wendy's, etc., it's their business.
The last time I ate food from a chain was three or fours months ago. We were at a mall and got burgers from 5 Guys (is that the name??). The burgers were good but the fries were greasy.
And people still cannot tell. They think I'm healthy as a horse.
[quote]Watch the documentary Super Size Me.
Yeah, watch the stupidest pseudo-documentary ever. Total piece of shit.
Not now here in England now that they have found horsemeat in ready-made meals, burgers and kebabs. Only chavs eat that kind of stuff here though.
Its a big newstory here with everyone acting shocked, but it must have been going on for some time: horse being labelled as beef. It must be a big criminal ring behind all this.
I did eat horse once years ago in France but did not know what it was until after, but it was sweeter than beef.
A couple of times a year I have a craving for Kentucky Fried Chicken. I avoid most fast food joints, although I probably have In'n Out two or three times a year.
I'm not a food Nazi - I don't judge what people eat.
You might try the Kentucky Fried Thoroughbred
as a vegan, one of the reasons I couldn't eat meat anymore was because I couldn't see a difference in eating horse meat, beef, pork, and even chicken. People frown upon certain cultures for eating a specific species, but why is it okay to eat one, and not the other? I'm not tryin to tell people not to eat meat, but to see people get outraged over eating horses is confusing me.
They have no issue eating chicken, but an animal that could be a pet, HELL TO THE NO! Hey guess what, growing up, you know what my mom had as pets growin up on a farm in England, CHICKENS. She named them. One day her mom chopped one up and served it, bless her, and my mom was sad over her pet now being considered food. My mom and I have had many conversations about this kind of species favoritism, and it helped her to understand why I couldn't eat meat anymore, considering the pets I had (dogs, cats), and my volunteer experience (rescuing strays).
If the animal was born and bred for the purpose of human consumption, I don't see why the species of the animal should matter
It doesn't matter, R44. People who get worked up over once species or another would get over it if they were truly starving. You'd get over it pretty quickly too, R44.
On average, maybe a couple of times a month. Sometimes I might end up eating at several fast food chains within a week but then not eat at any for a month. Most of the fast food doesn't appeal to me that much anymore. If I really want a hamburger, I'd rather spend a little bit more money at Five Guys than McDonald's.
I do eat at the cafeteria at my job and I have probably been eating too many bacon, egg and cheese sandwiches for lunch.
I don't eat fast food like McDonalds, but have been known to whip up a quick pasta.
[quote] If I really want a hamburger, I'd rather spend a little bit more money at Five Guys than McDonald's.
This I can get behind.
Yeah, we all know burgers are not the healthiest food - but Five Guys at least makes its burgers fresh and gets its meat from quality sources.
Of course, it's reflected in the price, too - $6 for a burger instead of $2.
$2 isn't much of a savings, though, when you think of all the chemicals, additives and preservatives that go into making that food....and all of the corners cut to make it that cheaply. That savings disappears when it makes you sick down the line.
[R40]= Eats Mcdonalds breakfast,lunch & dinner
I see all the "I'm too good to ever stoop to eating at McDonalds" nitwits are out in force on this thread.
I love Taco Bell. Eat there a few times a year.
Not a snob about it, I just don't eat from the other fast fooders much at all
Cows are stupid. Horses have served man for many years and deserve better. Chickens are stupid. I have not eaten meat in many years. As tasty as bacon is I refused to eat it because pigs are smarter than dogs.
R52 not all pigs.
It seems that when they began to breed pigs to be lean they got smarter. A fat wild hog shows little in the way of smarts.
you are what you eat
Once or twice a year I'll get Popeye's when going to visit relatives who live 4 hours away. All fast food is shit, but Popeye's at least tastes beter than McDonald's, Burger Kind, etc. If I'm going to eat shit it might as well taste good.
I don't count pizza, because I don't eat at crappy chains. The pizzerias I go to make everything fresh and use quality ingrediants. I grab a slice about once a month, though I do make my own pizza at home 1-2 times a month.
I'm not a vegan but agree with r44. It seems odd that people are outraged over horsemeat (though I don't think it should be served to people unknowingly) and outraged over people in China who eat dog. And trust me, I'm an animal lover with two rescues of my own and give lots of time and money to animal shelters. But if it's accepted culturally, what's the diffrence between killing a horse and killing a cow?
So many Americans turn their nose up at organ meat (or "offal" as it's called), which is a shame. We're one of the few countries that doesn't widely consume liver, tripe, etc. It's a shame, the way I see it, if you're going to eat meat you should at least eat the whole animal (and yes, I practice what I preach).
sorry [R50] I am too good to eat Mcdonalds. I care about what I put in my body.
I agree about the whole animal. I am a big fan of cow foot soup.
As a teenager and early 20's I ate tons of it because I was always hungry and it was cheap. About five years ago I got tired of being chubby and decided to eat healthier. Now I cook at home most of my meals and snacks but I still love McDs fries, Sonic wraps, and when I want a milkshake I go to Sonic, instead of buying a carton of ice cream for the house. I'd say now maybe once a week, but it's normally for a treat like the fries or an ice cream. If I'm hungry and have to go to one I pick a bean/cheese burrito at Taco Bell.
I used to eat fast food fairly frequently but I mostly stopped eating anything with meat when I realized just how gross it was. I'd bit into gristle in Big Macs and Jack in the Box burgers and cartilage in the chicken nuggets one too many times. I'm all for not wasting animal parts if they're being slaughtered, but I just couldn't do it anymore. I still stop by the occasional jalapeno poppers at Jack in the Box though.
Hate to break it to you but all you "I'm all that and don't eat fast food" are going to die one day just like everyone else.
I just ate a pancake. And it's sitting there in my stomach.
I got up really early to go Christmas shopping and for the first time ever, I got a bacon, egg & cheese biscuit from MacDonalds. It was fresh and hot and for $3 it was the best thing I'd ever had from any fast food store.
I've tried the grilled chicken wraps too usually get two of them. But I do all of it so rarely and I never eat beef so I never order what they describe as their "burgers."
I probably get fast food about 5-6 times a year, maybe less. I don't eat pizza or red meat. The chicken is full of hormones and antibiotics.
You must be black, OP.
Define "Fast Food." sometimes I will get a sub or a slice of pizza on my way home from work.
McDonald's, BK, etc? Almost never.
R61 sounds like a real brainiac. Quite the intellect and well-informed.
About ten times a year, when I'm out of town, I may stop for an order of fries or onion rings. I live in a town that has no fast food places so I would have to travel if I actually wanted fast food.
I eat at Chipotle once per week, usually on a Friday night when I'm too tired for anything better.
I eat shit
Maybe twice a month. I don't have anything against the "healthiness" of fast food, it's just that a lot of it tastes like shit now. It's not as good as it used to be 20 years ago.
I agree with others that the breakfast stuff is usually the most decent stuff they have now.
When I was drinking a lot, I ate McDonald's the day after. . .and that was most days. Now I've quit pouring shit into my body at night, I don't crave eating shit during the day. So I cook.
I shouldn't get too righteous though, because I still drink diet coke. That stuff is the devil's brew: DC I just can't quit you.
Unfortunately, several times a week if you include take out places like Boston Market and the local supermarket meals. If you mean places like Mcdonalds or Wendys then that's about once a week.
It's a bad habit but I hate cooking sometimes.
thrice per day
Last night, some friends made fun of me because I suggested we stop by Wendy's instead of a diner after hitting the bars. The diner food was nastier than anything I've had at Wendy's, more expensive and we had to tip.
Rarely. I love the whole foods diet.
Once in a while I will get something from Tropical Smoothie. Other than that, almost never. Surprisingly, there are very few fast food joints near where I work or live.
I eat it about 6-7 times a week.
It's been years.
I do my best to avoid fast food and chain restaurants.
It can get difficult when traveling in some areas. I do a fair amount of road trips and I'm finding it more difficult to find anything that isn't fast food or a chain in some smaller towns these days.
If I have no choice, I'll do my best to avoid the burger and chicken places and will gravitate toward pizza places and sandwich shops.
Last summer I was strangely addicted to McDonald's Sweet tea.
Now I find it to be like drinking pure sugar water.
thrice per day
Never, McDonalds and Co. tastes like shit.
2 or 3 times a year.
Probably at least 3 or 4 times a month, usually in waves though. So like 4 times in a week and then nothing for the rest of the month.
I eat at places like McDonald's less than 5 times a year. I do eat out about every month to 6 weeks at some place. A fish fry might not be fast food but just as bad so, overall, fast food for me is about once a month.
