I don't understand how people can eat fast food! Taco Bell can't even call their meat beef because it contains so little actual meat and then they stuff it with chemical and flavoring. Mcdonalds and burger king never molds. How is that possible! You tell people this and they still go and order a big mac! So gross. At least KFC uses real chicken, although they fry the health benefits right out of it and Wendy's uses real American raised beef. still tastes gross.. I also tried explaining to one of my friends that if a salad has 500 calories in it, then it's not healthy... they just don't get it.

I haven't eaten it in years.

I eat once a year. Only to realise again how much I don't like the taste. Everything tastes so weird. If I make french fries at home that tastes so real, but at Mc* it just tastes... plastic.

If I want to binge I'd much rather go to a proper restaurant recommended by the Gault Millau than to a junk food place...

Mmmmmmm. Fries supreme! Stop telling me to not enjoy these delicious foods. Obviously people know that it's bad for them. Let us die happy and ignorant!

Are you looking for a medal? I rarely eat fast food but don't feel the need to berate those who do.

So ya woop de woop for you

The better I've stared eating, the less appealing fast food is to me. Just doesn't taste the same anymore. But I still will eat it on occasion and see nothing wrong with that.

I eat fast food every weekday for lunch because as a mom of 3 school agers, I just don't want to make time to deal with making it. And I sit at a front desk and don't have a private place to eat in at work on my hour long lunch break. I eat salads with grilled chicken and dressing. The dressing adds most of the calories btw. And wendys Cobb salad is also popped up by the blue cheese and bacon, all real. I also eat grilled snack wraps, no sauce and the shrimp scampi platter at long John silvers and a small chili with chive baked potato. Healthiest? Maybe not. But it fits my calories, fats, protein, and sodium, etc. It's a vast improvement over the angus deluxe with large fries and sweet tea that I used to consume some variation of 5x a week. If you don't like it, don't eat it. But there are healthier, whole food options for those that choose to use it. Sure, my own home cooking is better, but that hour with my children, husband or working out are more important to me personally.

To each their own I guess. Some fast food is just dandy. I rather like a taco bell binge from time to time. I'd much rather have Chioptle but the nearest one is 30 min away.

Actually, that isn't true about Taco Bell.

Because I actually could care less what you think, believe it or not.

Sometimes people like the convenience of it when there's just no time to cook a meal.............especially (in my case) when you have small children.............or to treat yourself to an indulgence once in a while. Yes, you are entitled to your opinion, but don't knock those that make the choice in purchasing fast food.

Though it's gross, it's usually a quick fix. Not everyone ALWAYS has the time to cook a healthy meal. I agree with you though, I won't eat fast food. Only thing McDonald's is good for is when you're hung over, which says a lot about its product.

What makes a 500 calorie salad unhealthy? That's the point right? you just don't know.. I just ate an entire salad serving bowl full of salad with dressing on it and it was less then that.. I read the labels on those thing..Lots of unnecessary additions. It really doesn't take much effort to choose healthy foods. I just don't get it.

Sorry so many of you took offense. wasn't my intention.

Just having a conversation about it with someone and they made me think about stuff. People complaining about not being able to lose weight or how run down and crappy they feel, then they go to one of those places. if you can eat that food and still lose weight more power to you! I'm not really worried about weight, more-so the health aspects of it. I just don't it.

and I've seen the taco bell meat filling package.. it's not beef.

That's why we are all here actually. Because people are not perfect and tend to find it hard to distance themselves from what they like. I personally don't like fast food (taste issues) but the people who like it are not perfect so they struggle with this. Everybody knows in 2012 already that it is not healthy. They just find it hard to resist it.
I personally smoke. Others drink. Do meth. Break the law. Eat fast food. I am sure you have something too..

If I eat a salad, there will be half an avacado, some sauteed steak or chicken thigh, and salsa or ranch and cheese on it. Healthy? Yes. I get my protein, my fat, and some of my carbs. Good fat, good protein and good carbs... for more than 500 calories...

Also, I do not struggle with fast food, if I want it, I eat it. No struggle here.

Maybe it wasn't your intention to offend anyone but it is the way you came off. Like everyone who eats there is dumb and you're too smart.

I personally love Taco Bell even though I don't eat it as much. I make my own tacos at home almost once a week. And living in Queens, NYC I can just drive 5 minutes and get truly authentic Mexican tacos on Roosevelt Ave and no its not from chipotles, those are tacos but no its not Mexican food.

My feeling towards your post is......Tacos rule!!!! Please respect the taco.

I'm pretty sure people that have mentioned the salad thing is because your equating calories to health, which is not true in the least. People can add healthier calories, like chicken, egg, and god forbid, mayo and it may be a high calorie salad but it's not unhealthy if it's in the context of total calories. Hope that helps.

Weird, you had Pizza Hut Sausage and Pepperoni a few days ago. They have a drive through - so isn't that fast food? Get over yourself.
