    What do you eat more of once a day, week, month or even year?

    Personally, I eat fast food maybe once to twice a month, however, I have co-workers who eat fast food for lunch every day (Monday-Friday). I try to eat healthy, but sometimes it's hard to when you smell yummy fried food from the cubicle next you. LOL What about you guys?

    I've pretty much kicked the habit, and believe you me I was once in the lunch every day crowd and thought being healthy meant putting only one packet of dressing in my crispy chicken bacon ranch salad.

    For me the wakeup call came when my daughter was born with a heart defect. Setting a good example isn't optional for me. Little by little I'm turning into one of those whole food organic hippies I used to scoff at. Hopefully I'll be less self-righteous about it than some.

    Outside of pizza (the perfect food) once every week or two, fast food is purchased once every 3 or 4 months.

    Usually fast food once a week on average for lunch at work. I prefer homemade whenever I can however!

    I used to eat a lot of fast food, but now I eat hardly any as I try to avoid carbs like the plague and how can you eat fast food without eating some sort of wheat or corn?

    We do go to restaurants about once every 10 days or so.  That's not any better than fast food.

    Fast food is eaten sparingly. I prefer to cook my own meals.

    I eat most meals at home. When I do eat out, I often try to go somewhere with more healthy options like a sub shop. I eat fast food about once a month, but even then I don't go all out and get the super-size or anything.

    I cook almost all of our food at home. With a family of 5, it gets very expensive to eat out, not to mention how bad it is for you. When we went on vacation recently, we brought all of our food.
