    Do you eat fast food more than you eat home cooked meals?

      I eat home cooked meals more than fast food. And it saves on money by eating home meals.

      Definitely not.  I cook 6 nights a week (if not 7), and bring bag lunches to work.  I don't remember the last time I went to a fast-food establishment.  The closest was probably a local burger joint in Oakland a few years ago.  I know too much about fast food and what's in it to be able to choke it down.  I'd probably involuntarily vomit.

        What about Subway? Is it bad too?
        I eat there from time to time.

      I cook at home too and sometimes I even cook my own junk food. Still, I feel that I don't get enough veggies and fruits in my meals.

      no, I don't eat it. We cook every night and lunches are salads or leftovers from the night before.

      have you watched Fast Food Nation, or Food, Inc? 

      an occasional subway is fine, but fast food is basically food stuff and chemicals.

      BTW, I love the attitude quote you have on your profile! smile

        Ohhhh yes Fast Food Nation  oh wow

        Its not McDonalds its really McPoops... roll

        Also the more I check food labels ,the more disheartened Im becoming...some foods ,canned or pre-packaged are carrying 90% salt!! ,the sugar thing is also outrageous or they get around it by using corn syrup ,so they can say sugar 0%..crazy.

        I am sure this is not what people want,so how come they have laws that allow the manufacturers to be able too.

        I dont get it.

          Sugar's addictive, which is why they add it, so we'll keep coming back for more! Salt adds more taste to otherwise tastless non-food.

      I rarely eat fast foods. I gave them up several years ago for health reasons and now I don't enjoy them.

      No.  I cook almost all of my meals.  It helps to control my weight and it is cheaper.

      McDonalds maybe 1-2x per year max.

      Subway maybe 3-4x per year

      That's about it when it comes to fast food.

    I eat homecooked meals,lots of fresh whole foods BUT occassionally I eat junk food because it tastes so good!

    nowadays it costs too much to eat out, so we do a lot of home cooking.  its healthier meals, too.

    Fast food will kill you. Know a guy's mom, her son 23 got diabetes and cancer on a diet of soda and fast food, plus weighed about near 300 pounds.

    Unless it is Wendy's #6(spicy chicken) I usually don't touch it. McDonalds is kind of gross as is BK, White Castle, or any of those other places. I'd rather go buy some sausage and grill out.

    I probably make a eat roast beef or turkey sandwiches more than anything.. Or maybe even cereal.

      wendys spicey chicken is garbage compared to chick-fila's, try it once and you'll never go back!

    Forget about "that tastes good" excuse! if you realise what it does to your body, you'll never be able to enjoy it. It ruins your health, it's not natural, it's overprocessed and is only good to fatten pigs! But nowadays even pork meat preferred to be lean! Places like McDonald and Tim Horton's in Canada (I do not know if they sneaked in US or not yet) should be illegal. I am not joking. People eat oversugared "dog's nuts" with sugary coffee and fat cream. What else? Soups at Tom Horton's are cooked in a plastic bag for hours, don't ask me why, no idea. Bagels and breads have cheap margarine in it. I worked there, I know. If I tell you everything you are not going to eat anything there, guaranteed. Take a lunch bag, how hard is it?

    "I am sure this is not what people want,so how come they have laws that allow the manufacturers to be able too." Because the manufacturers own America and control the FDA.

    I eat almost all of my meals at home, with the occasional pizza from a nearby restaurant (soooo good) every couple of weeks, and the occasional meal out with friends. But every couple of months I have to admit that I get the craving and eat either a McD's fish sandwich, a Subway sub (whole wheat bread, hold half the bread) or a Quizno's salad or sub. I can't help myself. smile

    Definitely not! I have the occasional fast food meal, but it is usually only once or twice per month

    Be sure to watch the video before it's against the law to see where your food comes from.

    No, I'm very conscious of what I eat and cook about 90% of everything I eat.

    There is always room for a fast food night when you eat well.

    I never eat fast food unless there is a situation where I can't get home to cook, so mainly only when traveling.

    I eat a lot more home-cooked meals than I do fast food, but I do enjoy take out every now and again.

    I had to take a few minutes to think about this reply and when I did actually last have fast food. The best I can do is state that it is definitely more than two years ago because I was living in London at the time. I remember buying a doner kebab after leaving a pub fairly late one night (in no condition to be cooking.)

    I would honestly never consider buying fast food, except in an emergency. It is inferior to home cooked food in taste, it is many times more expensive and it is more often than not extremely unhealthy in nature.

    Don't see the appeal! smile

    I often feel a pang of hunger which causes me to drop into a McDonald or Burger King, which I just happen to be passing by. Bockwurst, ice cream and white chocolate seem to be part of my daily diet, too. But I do take a vitamin pill each day.

    Okay, I'm exagerating a little - I also cook a healthy meal almost every evening, and I did eat an apple today.

    I try to eat at home because its healthy, tastier and cheaper.  Fast food tastes good then you break out and get this ugly belly fat.

    I think people should be honest.Because most of the busy people who specially works outside,have to depend sometime on fast foods.The tanagers are mad for fast foods.Burgers,Pizza,Chocolates,Ice creams are the first preference on their menu list.So,fast foods are quite hot listed.But we should avoid fast foods as much as we can as it does nothing but bad for our health.

    I eat out quite a bit more than I'd like but I totally stay away from fast food.  Fast food makes me feel like crap. 

    I love to cook at home and I hope with this upcoming living situation change, I'll really be able to do a lot of heavy duty home cooking!

    My college-age kids all say they can't feed themselves cheaper than a dollar menu! So guess what they eat a lot of.... I do like to cook and the dollar menu is cheaper, but I just don't like it.
