In this fast-paced society, fast food centers have become very popular. With more and more people having less and less time to prepare food at home, fast food centers have become very convenient places for family and friends. But do you believe it is good to eat in these fast food centers most of the time?

It is unhealthy because it is high in calories and most of these calories are dietary fats, especially unsaturated fat. Hydrogenated Oils are used to cook fried foods most of the time and they are really bad.

I love fast food and all kind of junkies.I know that they are unheaalthy,but I believe that a person can enjoy great, good food uptil the age of thirty as the digestive systems get weaker with age.Thus I keep on eating anything I love,no matter how many pounds of cholesterol or fats it contains.Ofcourse,I do workout to keep myself healthy.

Hello reco13 this is checkmail and do think that eating fast food is better for health in some terms, till it is in limits.Yes there has been opening of fastfood services more in current time, and its is nearly enjoyed by everyone, from child to old.But toher diet must also remain at its place, means excessive eating of fast food will not alone help our heatlh.According to me inbetween fastfood is better for our health with home foods.

I dont think in general fast food is good for you of course there are always exceptions to the rule. I think there are some really good places to find bargains about the food you eat and ways to have fun with your food. Good luck with finding some good places to eat.

for me i could say that food that we have seen in fast food is not good for us especially when we always eat here,because most of the food they prepare are usually high in cholesterol contain level and we all know that its bad in our health.

I really don't think fast food is any good for us. Eating fast food once in a while is okay especially when you don't have time and rushing to somewhere else, fast food is pretty much the only choice. But i tend to avoid eating it if I don't need to.

Fast Food in general is not good for you.But as you have already mentioned fast lifestyles is why there is such a rise in it. You can make healthier choices with fast food such as opting for grilled instead of fried and chicken instead of beef. Common Sense will go a long way.
