I don't like much fast food, I find it tasteless and like it's been preserved for god knows when. I also can't stand that oily smell in fast food restaurants, that you keep smelling from miles away. Apart from that, fast food isn't really healthy at all. I prefer to eat a good plate of pasta, chicken or seafood.

I have a similar dilemna but my problem is french fries. I do not like fast food or fast food restaurants but there are a few places that I can NOT resist their fries. I can't think of a fast food place who's hamburger I actually like. I prefer my hamburgers grilled on a bbq grill with big slices of tomato and crispy lettuce.

I didn't know there was a connection between fast food restaurants and the rainforests. I occasionally go to fast food places, but not as much as I used to since I'm trying to lose weight. I sometimes buy 91% fat-free hamburger patties or turkey burgers at the store and cook them myself. That way, I know they're not being prepared using high-fat grease or other ingredients.

there is a connection, because the companies need meat for there hamburgers. they buy it from other big companies. and those companies are cutting down the rainforest, so they can use the ground for more and more cows

Hi Operator, as far as what I know most of stuffs of the fast food restaurants using to prepare the dishes could bring great damage to the said rain forests in the mentioned area. I just hope that they would be some smart people could help them to shift to use other more delicious stuffs or create other cooking material and ingredients that are friendly to the environment, so everyone could feel pleasant and enjoy having the yummy foods in the fast food restaurants again relaxingly as all of us don’t have any worry anymore. Yeah, compare to those earlier days I rarely visit the fast food restaurants already. I visit it only when all the food stalls or food courts in my place closed during festive days. My hubby and I would take a cup of hot coffee and fish burger respectively only. Happy posting and have a nice day.

I've never looked at it in that way. But I guess that if I would turn to hate consumer products because of the harm they did to the environment then I would end up with very very few choices because even the most innocent looking small business is still indirectly polluting my environment. And I would hate myself as a hypocrite because it's not that I spend enough to make sure that I'm not leaving this world without imprinting myself in it with minimal waste - I just can't afford that. Thanks for the response on my discussion!

I don't eat fast food very often, but I do eat at my school's dining hall often. I don't really feel bad eating the food, as I try not to eat it often. One burger isn't what is supporting them. One burger every once in a while won't help, right?

I have never heard that they are indirectly are supporting such things. I do like BK's Whopper & I Looooove their fries... though I like the custard/hamburger stands better. I just don't care for it too much as it's too fattening and I don't always have the money to take our family out to eat as it is.

fastfood restaurant - there are many fastfood restaurants in the world.
I don't hate fastfood restaurants. I think it is quite convenient for you to have a meal in it when you are in a hurry. Besides, it's fast and the price isn't expensive. I love China
