Over here in South Africa i dont think it is that common. I rearly eat junk food myself, mainly because i cant afford to buy it, haha. I know it is a lot different overseas because there is a take away joint absolutely everywhere you look. So how often do you eat junk food?

me & my husband usually grab junk foods on nights with nice TV series or with late night movies to watch & junk food eating may make the watching more enjoyable & keeping away from sleepiness! maybe 3 times a week or just on weekends when enjoying time together at home with lots of different cooking of healthy recipes & may end up with some junk foods too. like those with junk food appetizers, healthy main dish but then sweets at the end too. just keeping an eye too of not indulging of it too much. maintaining healthy foods most of the time - vegetables & fruits & soy products for protein & white meat.

hi rumple. i know it's not too good for you but i often eat junk food. i try my hardest sticking to healthy stuff like salads and fruit but it just gets so boring. it is worse when you you walk past mcdonalds or burger king and get the smell of those lovely burgers! starting to get a bit fat aswell so had better start changing my eating habits!

haha... yeah, that and a good bit of exercise regularly never hurt anybody. Actually that is one of my other discussions... anyway good luck with the cutting down. Maybe try not to breathe when you walk past next time :P

I also rarely eat junk food, but strangely enough always find myself in a burger joint when travelling abroad, haha. I guess it's because I like to play safe and as I'm not a great adventurer when it comes to tasting complete different kinds of food than the ones I'm used to, I go for the junk food option. I don't miss it anyway now that I'm back from my last trip, that stuff gets sickening pretty quickly...give a decent full dish of any kind over it anyday!

Yeah... there's nothing like a good home cooked meal is there. Ok so maybe thats wrong... There's nothing like a meal at a really good restaurant :) and yes junk food does tend to get sickening pretty quickly. Its good that there are so many to choose from...

I eat a lot of junk food. I'm too thin. So I will eat anything that large people are not supposed to eat. Hamburgers, french fries, ice cream at midnight. Cookies, and cake. Nothing makes me gain weight, I just don't get it.

The amount of food thrashed in the united states could relieve the misery of lacks of indians who solely depend on junk food for a living
