Fast-food is so addicting! Why do we even eat it? We all know that its bad for us, then why do we still eat it? I always have cravings for fast food, I love KFC's chicken, the burger king whoppers and the delicious big macs! Why is fast food so addicting?

because it tastes good. I love fast food, i work long hours and do other activities such as go to the gym, earn money on line and care after relatives so sometimes i just dont have the time to cook a decent meal so its easier for me to eat fast food. But i suppose that we eat it because we all like it

"We" don't all eat that stuff. I know that I don't. For the cost of a fast "food" meal or less, I can create a beautiful, delicious and healthy meal from scratch using local or mostly local ingredients. It doesn't have to take much time or energy. So, why would I want to eat something that doesn't taste good to me (really, I can taste the high fructose corn syrup, and it leaves a nasty aftertaste), that isn't good for my health, that doesn't support the local economy, and that is bad for the planet?

I think were addicted to fast food because its very convenient and available 24/7. Nowadays most of the people are busy working hard to earn money and dont have enough time cook for their foods so they just pick up the phone and ordered, then after a few minutes you can eat right away without any mess.

Me too, I love eating fastfoods but I don't usually eat them because my mom don't allow me to eat them always so I just eat them when my mom's not around and when I have extra money.

it is for a great fact that fast foods are indeed delicious. However, I always bear in mind that these foods are not really that healthy and are pretty expensive too compared to home cooked foods, that is the reason why I am not addicted to them. haha

fast foofs are always available... They are cheaper than your average restaurants too and well i honestly say that fast food meals have been really appealing... Such that they are partnered with a nice cold softdrink with a serving of yummy fries and the burger or the chicjen itself is heavenly delicious. I even thought maybe they had placed some amount of additves thay makes us crave for them...

It is bad for our health doesn't mean that we will stop eating them, may be fast food chain have special formula that mix the right amount of chemical and spice to make their food so delicious for our taste bud and cause us addicted to it, our reasoning mind is overpowered by the craving inside our head, that is why we even eat it knowing full well it's bad for us, we will rather get sick than not eating the fast food. Obviously some thing gone wrong inside our head after we ate fast food on regular basic, we may have some part of our brain chemistry alter or stop functioning properly that we can't seem to be able to overcome the inner craving anymore. It needs some thorough lab research in order to find out the real reason why people are so addicted to fast food, and we may never know the scientific facts behind it since most of the formula and additive used by fast food restaurant is beyond public knowledge and information base.

It's addicting because its laced with fat and grease, and it theorized that the human body is still programed to crave fat and grease to sustain us during our hunter/gatherer days. Well... it's a theory that I heard. Somewhere. Oh, and Fast Food doesn't adequately fill you up so once you're done you'll be hungry for more. I don't eat fast food. After a few years of eating healthy, it tastes like fat and grease to me. I find it gross. So I'll take my veggies and my fruits, and my delicious whole grains over a big mac any day.

Oh, it is just as what you say, fast food is bad for our health. I don't eat fast food any more. Maybe you could try some Chinese food, just like noodles and dumplings that are so convenient.

I too love fast food but it's not addicting for me. if you really know it's bad for your health, then you should be able to control your addiction and I didn't mean to stop eating them completely but not often. Well, I didn't eat burger and I'm vegetarian,, I like french fries!!

One of the reasons that I know is, fast foods are ready to eat and we don't need to wait just as we normally do when we are in a restaurant plus it is much cheaper. So when we are in a hurry the tendency is to find a fast food to fill our stomach well, we all know it's not healthy and addiction to eat will definitely harm our health. Maybe we can do it sometimes but not too often. I like KFC's chicken and burgers too.

I love fast food too, since we only have to wait for a small amount of time and they are very tasty..and they cost less i guess. But they are not healthy.. I guess it's because it's so delicious..? I love KFCs chicken too.. and Jollibee's food- all of it..
