Why do you eat fast food?

I try to avoid fast food places when I can. When I do have to eat out (mostly during work), I usually drop by a taco truck or one of the local Mexican outfits. The food is fresh, delicious, cheap, and quick. I can usually get a huge burrito that I can't even finish for about four bucks. A meal is usually five, but I have to eat and drive most of the time, so burritos are convenient. I usually make my own lunches, but sometimes I just don't have the energy after a 12-16 hour day.

I normally only eat fast food if my friends want to have some while we're out. I'll also go out to Taco Bell if I'm stoned and there's nothing at home. I prefer to make my own meals or at least buy from a non fast food restaurant.

While I do probably eat more than my fair share of fast food, it's not because I particularly like it - I'm just not at home when I go to play games, and don't particularly care for sandwiches (just about the only alternative). So it's really just a matter of convenience than anything; if my workplace has somewhere I can reheat leftovers instead of grabbing a burger I'll use it.

Also, I'd just like to note that the demand for fast food in the US has actually gone down in recent years. So there's that.

Convenience, it isn't cheap they way I eat it (about $12 a meal on average). I eat it daily. I typically only eat breakfast and lunch, though. Though "lunch" could be as late as 7 or 8 pm on the weekends. I used to make my lunch before work when I had a tighter budget, but I didn't save all that much money, because I live alone and have some bad qualities. I am so forgetful that I would go several days in a row of forgetting to make lunch or I'd make lunch and forget to bring it. When I didn't forget, my other bad quality, procrastination, would present and I would put off making lunch until it was too late to make it. Then the food stuffs would go bad. It would be the same with leftovers, when I had them.

As far as fast food taste and quality, some of it is pretty good. For instance, one of the places I go is Chipotle. That has good food. I wouldn't even consider it fast food, except that it is fast. It's faster than the fast food places. Another is Dos Coyotes, which also has some good food. Subway's food isn't terrible. And most weeks I'll grab Olive Garden to go on the weekends, which tastes good anyway, even if it isn't good for you.

I used to be a fast food addict. I love eating fries and burgers before. But now, I am more into homemade foods. They taste a lot better. Trust me.

To get food. Fast. Hence, fast food.

But, I've been eating clean for the past couple of months. Still eating a lot, like around 3500-4000 cal, but it's all clean. I eat fast food once every 1-2 weeks.

It's useful and time saving. For example, I had a nasty ... 5 months of work that just ended where my skeleton crew of a team lost someone to injury right when approved vacations were occuring... then another injury (and it's not a dangerous job, just coincidence). So note that 10 hr days are standard as it's a 4-10. Now it's a 6 or even 7-10. With sleep and travel time and the unpaid break times we're looking at 21 hours of a day accounted for, now every day of the week. I had about as much drive to make food as I did to eat glass.

So I just planned for calorie intake a bit and grabbed a bunch of meal-bars for length of work shifts to suppliment and it worked okay. ...Kinda sick of burgers though...

Now that it's done, maybe just on occasion when I'm lazy or just get one of those moods where you want something cheap and pre-made.

I hate going to fast food places. Only reason I do is when I need to get food fast and I don't have time to go home after work to grab something. Only fast food I have ever enjoyed is from pizza restaurants.

Because of the convenience of it's location from where I normally spend my time, along with the delicious taste. KFC may be a bit pricey but oh my God. If you're even slightly hungry, it tastes as good as if you're about to starve to death! My mouth is literally watering as I type this.

I eat fast food, McDonalds, only because I love the taste of the food. Though I only eat eat let's say every 2 weeks once or twice. Despite what snobby people would say it does taste good. Though I do tend to be a picky eater and this an actual thing where I have a preference for certain types of foods. Some wont do for me and if I am not in the mood for food I wont eat for hours.

For example: I hate all types of chocolate (only like black chocolate), donuts, pasta, Mexican food though I am from Mexico. I just cannot stand the flavor of homemade tacos or tamales because corn maize is gross, I hate pickles and mustard so I have to take it out of my hamburgers, I only like Green Granny Smith apples because they are bitter and the rest of the apples out there for me just have bad taste, I dislike cake since it is too sweet, I hate the weird flavor and taste of ice cream, and I dislike cupcakes so I wont eat because of their texture.

Also I hate the taste of homemade food. My family complains a little about it but I tell them if they cannot make food that appeals to my taste I just cannot consume it. So that is why I turn to fast food that has a more appealing flavor.

I like pizza, sandwiches-subs, green apples, Chips Ahoy cookies, brownies, cheesecake, flans, and McDonald's. That is why. When I hardly eat based on the fact that I am a very picky eater these types of foods appeal to me: McDonalds. People can say it is so unhealthy or what not but if I do not like the flavor of foods or drinks then I would be far worse not eating anything which would lead me to be far more unhealthy and likely malnourished. So me being a medium weight (though I am considered thin physically) and actually being capable of doing things doesn't tell me I am unhealthy.

I also do not buy into what society tells you that not drinking anything but water is unhealthy. So I drink lots of acai berry or orange juice with soda on a given day. Whatever. I will do what I like.
