But now I go jogging and exercising regulaly so I dont end up as bad out of shape as I was then.



Hehe, might that MMO be World of warcrack? i was addicted to that quite a bit maybe like 2 yrs ago. Luckily i quit xD.

As for the question at hand, i USED to eat fast food atleast 5 times a week, sometimes pushing near double digits. But with my long hours at work, i really had little choice *homemade sammiches get old fast*. But nowadays its like once a month, can't say i feel any different, Hell i weigh more now than i did then. As long as your moving, fast food...homemade..who cares. People are just lazy. Fast food may not be the healthiest and you don't really know what goes into making it, but meh..it's a hell of a lot cheaper than buying groceries.

Oh hell no! The thought makes me sick. I'm an organic health freak, my diet is mainly fish, rare steak and vegetables.

I like to eat lots of pasta, vegetables, and fruits, and occasionally sweets. I eat meat very rarely and don't ever eat seafood.
I'd like to learn how to cook better, and it'd be nice to date someone who likes to cook from time to time.

I don't eat fast food much anymore. I went a little crazy when I was in college and had my first debit card, and all that fast food on campus. I'd eat Sbarro's pizza or pasta for lunch, smoothies as a snack, Subway for breakfast, stuff like that.
Now I'm not that fond of fast food, though I do have a bit of a weakness for Chinese food since I don't know how to cook it.
I prefer healthier food from home or from actual sit-down restaurants, where the cooks know for sure what they're making you, where the ingredients were bought, etc (even if you're not going to ask).
I've continued to cut down on junk food at home and eating out.

I love organic food, I never want to eat non-organic cheese or pizza again, but unfortunately, with the exception of kiwi fruit, most organic items are more expensive than (and sometimes double the cost of) non-organic groceries.

If someone ever wanted to take me out to McDonald's, I'd be pretty disappointed. The only thing I'll eat is the fruit, salad (their meat is gross, so no thanks), fruity oatmeal that they offer now, perhaps a smoothie although it's high sugar and high calorie, and juice or chocolate milk. Not a lot of choice, for me...

I'm a very heavy fast-food consumer. :o) I actually prefer fast-food over 'real' food sometimes, but I still consider myself to have an athletic/slender build!

No actually not WoW, happily, I hate that game. Guild wars, it was free so that was enough to get me addicted.

Its not all about being fat.

Fast food is absolutely horrible for you.

Please reconsider your food choices.

You'll feel a lot better.

I used to eat fast food often in middle school and high school, not hard when the charbroiled burger place is a 30 second walk up the street, and the alternative to get to the normal grocery store meant that I had to cross two streets. Typical mental logic laziness of the age group. But I was also very active in my P.E. classes, did a lot of walking and then eventually was in a weight training course in Junior year. Despite all of the exercise, I was not healthy. My body fat percentage remained morbidly high (or so the weight training teacher told me) even at 133 pounds. When all of that exercise stopped, of course the weight started to pile on.

After some painful self-realization of why I was eating how I was, I started reading labels and looking things up. The preservatives and the other crud they put into fast food, soda, juice and snack foods was enough to scare me straight. Want to pickle your insides? Eat fast food -end drama-

Nah, probably once every two months. Cooking is my passion.

Every twice a week or so

Whether it's fast food or healthy food doesn't really matter. I used to eat fast food roughly twice a day 5 days a week while at work. I was at work 12-14 hours a day so didn't have much choice and nowhere to store food that I brought from home. Even though I ate fast food I was actually losing weight due to my job being physical work non stop for 9-12 hours in 115 to 120 degree heat. You sweat off a lot of weight.;

However, after being promoted to a nice desk job. My eating habits have changed. Since I love cooking, I almost always bring food from home... yet since I'm at a desk for 12-14 hours a day now and I have always had a very low metabolism I started to gain.

It all comes down to physical activity and your body's natural metabolism. If you don't have one you had better have the other.

Of course as others have said, fast food IS bad for you.
