So which is your favorite hamburger? The Big Mac from McDonalds or The Whopper from Burger King? Or do you avoid these places totally?

I actually avoid these places like the plague, because I hate junk food, especially burgers, and especially from places like Macdonalds or Burger king. I probably go into Macdonalds once or twice a year just for their strawberry milkshake, Burger King I've never been in. Because I'm a health fanatic, going to the gym 5 times a week I am very very careful what I eat and greasy burgers and chips are a NO go. Besides when I was a teenager I had their burgers and they were very unappetizing, full of fat and salt that I'm not missing anything.

Wolfie, I wish I had your ambition and motivation to go to the gym 5 days a week!

I dont like both. I like wendys. I seldom eat at mcdo or burger king. The fastfoods that I eat are jollibee and wendys.

We don't have Jollibee's here. Now you have me wondering what I'm missing!

Nothing could beat the Big Mac when I was young. Now, however, I generally avoid fast-food restaurants.

Have you noticed that the Big Macs aren't that big anymore? Thanks for responding!

Big Mac from McDonalds definitely. I'm not really a Big Mac fan but I do love the double cheeseburgers and nuggets. And I love their fries also. :)

Well, I try to avoid both of those Fast Food Restaurants. I'll take a good old Whataburger with Cheese anyday. (With an order of Onion Rings!)

Well none of the above of course, since I don't eat meat! But if I'm in the mood for fast food, I'll get a Morningstar Veggie burger at BK... even though it's kind of a waste of money since I can buy frozen Morningstar for cheaper! I try to avoid fast food though, b/c for years it was my main source of nutrition and now I'm trying to eat healthier.

I generally stay away from fast food for obvious reasons but I am guilty of grabbing a meal there if I'm out and about with the kids all day. When I was younger, Mcdonalds was the best, that was before BK started flame broiling their burgers. BK has the best fast food burgers there are. Their fries are now good too. I can't eat a whole whopper though cuz they're so darn big. BK defanitly has more value over McDonalds.

UGH! I can't eat either of these anymore. Once in a VERY blue moon I crave one and order one, but not even halfway through I end up sicker than a dog. Since having gastric bypass surgery I can't eat this stuff anymore. I had my gallbladder out at the same time. Between the two, I can't handle fried foods at all anymore. I physically get sick, usually throwing up whatever I managed to get choked down. Once apon a time, however, Whoppers were my favorite. I worked at McDonalds growing up, so I got VERY tired of Big Macs, real fast. lol
