We all know fast food isn't all that good for your health but still a lot of us eat it. Do you eat fast food and why?

We hardly ever eat out. I'd rather have a home cooked meal. If it is a weekend sometimes we go out if either one of us it too tired to cook but usually we don't eat out.

It's nice that you both know how to cook. At least you can help each other out.

I used to eat it once a week or more, but I am really going to cut back. I've checked out the nutritional facts about all those places and it's really disgusting. If I have the urge to eat out, I take a look at those facts and am instantly making a salad or something else. There are too many calories and grams of fat and I don't want that.

Yeah, it doesn't taste as good once you realize whats in it.

After my husband decided to change his diet we haven't had fast food in about a year. With the exception of pizza for our anniversary. His cholesterol dropped more than some people who take meds just to get it down. I feel so much better now that we are eating healthier. Plus we save a whole lot of money. Try eating out less it's so much better for you!!

I'm glad it worked out that way for you. I think we could all learn from your example.

I have been eating a lot of fast food. I gained a lot of weight, but on my way into work the fastest thing was fast food. I now realized how unhealthy it is and I am cutting it out of my diet!

Unfortunately a lot of things that are fast in life are not necessarily good for you.

I used to eat fast food a lot, but not as much because of the lack of money. I really enjoy eating Taco Bell's food, but I eat it once a month maybe. I know it's not all that good for me, but it's a lot easier than cooking.

Sometimes, when time is of the essence, you don't have much choice.

Not very often. I'm not real crazy about burgers that are made out of a "meat substitute", nor do I like opening up a burger only to find all the toppings smeared together into a pile of ick. I do like ordering a pizza every now and then, but for the most part, I'm not a fast food person.

Damn, are you saying pizza is FAST food. Maybe because of my Italian heritage it's ok for me.

The only fast food I really eat is Wendy's, simply because it's tailored to the older crowd. You've got options, and they aren't all greasy fries. You have: chili, chips, salad, baked potato, fruit, yogurt... how can you Not eat here? But generally -- it's the grocery store for me :)
