i love home cooked food a lot more than grabbing fast food. although i can't help but buy fast food whenever i am at work for i don't bring my doggie bad with me... and i am lazy to bring one... which do you prefer?

Fast food is yet another plague on our society. I am guilty of eating too much fast food, and I pay for it every day in the form of weight gain and lack of energy. It is harder and harder to eat healthy these days, but I am trying to make myself do it. I am trying to stay away from fast food all together. When I do eat fast food, I try to stay away from the "value meals". If you must eat fast food, at least stay away from the fries. It is ok to eat a burger or chicken sandwich by itself. I am also learning to get the smaller drinks. Sometimes I don't get a drink at all, and just drink water. I like going to Subway. They seem to have healthier meals as long as you stay away from the foot-long subs. Most of their 6-inch subs are not that bad for you as long as you get the wheat bread and load it with veggies. It is hard to do, but you can learn to cope. I am still learning, but it is becoming easier.

Eating at fastfoods has a lot of disadvantage than advantage. First, usually food that is being served has less to no nutrition already this is because of the additives added on the food. Doctors highly recommend food cooked at home because it is healthier and balance diet would be achieved. Aside from this, fastfood could be prone for health disorders. Because of the nature of the fastfood and they are around the corner we prefer to rush to it, I think it is okey for sometime, but it shouldn't be done regularly. Eat healthy diet, smile and have a beautiful day !

I prefer home cooked because it is better for you. I know it takes time but what I do is I cook a lot on the weekend and store it in tupperware containers and reheat the food during the week. It also saves you money.

I love both but nowadays I've been having too much fast foods. More convenient that way though less healthy.

I prefer home cooked meals but I just dont have the time to cook food at home myself. I am a student who is always on the go and it is not often I get to experience a home cooked meal. I try to take time out and do so because I know it is healthier for me and its not good to eat fast food all the time.

Home made food is good because we know that it is clean and we are the one who prepares it for our meal.you can save a lot of money if you cook food at home and im sure that you can budget your money easily and you can manage it too,even though we don't have choice sometimes to eat on a fastfood or a fine dining restaurant but for me home made food is the best because you know how clean it is and you are the one who prepares it.

In Indonesia, fast foods can make your pocket empty very soon. So... I prefer home cooked better than fast foods. But... sometimes I bought fast foods, coz I can't denied that its very delicious.

I preferred home cook food. It tastes better and more nutritious than that in the fast food. In there, the food is more commercialize. Not putting the right ingredients.. that's why I love home cooked food better.
