    Do you eat fast food?

    Do you eat fast food? Do you find it convenient? How often will you get fast food?

    Do you live in a food desert? (A food desert is a location that is not located near a food store that sells fresh produce).

    I look forward to hearing from you!! Have a great day!

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    Hi!!

    Yes! More than I should haha! I work at Sonic and eat there a lot. I also like Taco Bell. I have never heard of a food desert before!

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    Hi all!

    I do not eat fast food. It personally tastes really nasty to me. It always tastes like oil and too much salt. Although it can be convenient I always prefer to make my own food. It's also healthier that way! I eat fast food maybe once a year if that. Sometimes I'm shoved in a situation where I have no other choice and I'll eat fast food then but usually I'm able to get out of it.

    I do not live in a food desert in terms of groceries but I do in terms of restaurants. There is maybe one good restaurant in the area. It's kinda sad.

    Thanks for the forum!

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    Howdy mistervancleef,

    I rarely eat fast food. If I am to eat fast food it will be at a place such as Chipotle, which I don't really view as truly fast food. I do find fast food convenient, it just isn't worth the cost it places on not only your body, but the harm it does to the world as a whole.

    I eat fast food around once a month.

    Thanks for reading!

    Good afternoon!

    I am not a big fan of fast food, but I will eat it on occasion. I prefer Chick-fl-a over the rest of the fast foods. When I was younger, fast food restaurants were a staple and today they are more of the exception.

    Have a great day!

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    I wish fast food wasn't so synonymous with convenient and inexpensive. When I'm running around like crazy between classes or other activities and I'm hungry...it's too easy to stop! I try to get a kids meal or small portions when I have to eat on the run, but I am not always successful. I've found that planning ahead is a much better option and I feel the best physically when I make the time to do this. Snack packs in my car, a lunchbox with healthy options, etc. Then I'm not tempted to stop.

    I am close enough to grocery stores to get fresh fruits and veggies, but need to invent one with a drive-thru!

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    I am willing to eat fast food, but honestly not very often. Most of the time, it just isn't very good for you. Places like Burger King, McDonalds, Wendy's, Hardees, etc - all serve food that you really shouldn't be eating on a regular basis. Eating fast food on a regular basis isn't just bad for your physical health but your mental health too. Healthy foods mean a healthier brain.

    I will usually only eat fast food if I am going out with friends (we are all flat out broke and we try to have fun on the cheap) or when my mother decides she doesn't feel like cooking and wants to just get McChickens for everyone. Of course, she is usually willing to cook, but I don't blame my mom for wanting to take a lazy day here and there. Usually she gets fast food for the family less than once a month - fast food is definitely a delicious treat when she does!

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    Hello mistervancleef,

    I do not live in a food desert, but I still like to eat fast food. In fact, I probably eat it way too much. I like to get Wendy's which is the "healthier" option out of the big three fast food places. It tastes good and their food is almost always fresh, but it is a little more expensive. I think that it is worth it though.

    Unfortunately, there is no Wendy's on my campus so I either get Chipotle or Panda Express. Both taste really good, but Chipotle is the fresher out of the two, but Panda Express is closer and more convenient for me.

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    Hey,

    I like to think I eat fast food a very balanced amount, but I'm probably lying to myself. I probably eat fast food once a week or once every two weeks. It's conveniently on my way home and very cheap. I don't live in a food desert but I get fast food anyway. I probably shouldn't, but oh well.

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    Yes I do eat fast food , I eat it 3 to 4 times a week. I eat it alot because it is super convenient, and if I'm not in the mood to cook I can just get fast food. Also I can get it on my way back from somewhere and I'm surrounded by them. But it very unhealthy and im working to cook more meals and switch to other foods. I do not live in food a dessert.

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    Hey,

    As much as I don't wish to eat fast food I end up having them. I have them precisely because its convenient. it is quickly available. However recently I have been cutting down my frequent visits to fact food.

    Thanks for the question!

    Regards

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    Hey Van Cleef,
    Always enjoy answering your forum, man I love fast food. I don't think I can live without it. It's cheap and super convenience. It's the best for students like me who need a cheap, quick lunch before class starts. Of course, you wanna avoid those unhealthy fast foods menu, so for me I make sure I eat the ones on the healthier side or less unhealthy haahaa.

    Cheers,

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    Good Morning,

    Sadly, my family and I eat out very often. I do find it convenient. We probably eat out at some point everyday if I can't make it to the grocery store. Our schedule is pretty intense with work, school, commute time, sports, homework, chores, family events, etc... I try my best to make it to the store, but if I don't we will eat out for at least one meal.

    Have a great day!

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    HELLO!!
    I probably eat fast food once a year tbh. The reason for that is because I feel very gross and nasty after consuming fast food. Yes, it tastes good while eating it, but the second you finish it, you literally regret what you just did. At least for me personally, I'm like what did I just do?! If I'm really craving something like fast food, I will go to Panera bread or Chipotle. Which I guess is fast food but it's definitely a healthier alternative option to McDonalds or Dennys.

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    Hi there,

    It is so hard to stay away from fast food! They make fast food places so convenient that sometimes when I don't want to cook, I just go get fast food. I've been pretty good about not buying fast food recently, but on my days off I like to go to places like Panera. Interestingly enough according to the Smithsonian, "consumption of junk is driven by peer pressure and marketing—not physiological need—say nutrition experts". I would say marketing is what lures me to these fast food places. Every fall Panera carries an autumn squash soup that I just cannot get enough of. I go to Panera more times in the autumn that I do all the rest of the year combined.

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    Hello!

    During the school year I eat way more fast food than I normally would during the summer when I actually have time to grocery shop and cook. I don't know what you would consider fast food but I think I definitely eat what I like to call fast casual food more often. I consider things like noodles and company, chipotle, zoe's kitchen, etc. to be fast casual. I think fast food is like McDonads and Burger King.

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    I eat Chipotle and it's the best fast food restaurant in my opinion. It definitely knocks the socks off McDonald's. At one time, McDonald's was the behemoth of fast food restaurants. Now, not so much. They used to make the best snack wraps, and to my knowledge, they got rid of them. Like wth was up with that??? Those snack wraps were good! I always got the chicken snack wraps with honey mustard as my sauce. They were like less than $2 per snack wrap and it was a good option. Now, all McDonald's can cling to are their Big Macs which are kind of getting old, their Mochas, and maybe, just maybe their Kids' Meals. But yeah, McDonald's better get their act together if they want to be recognized again as THE fast food chain.

    Re: Do you eat fast food?

    Hello!

    I do on the occasion. For work, we travel a lot and usually don't have a lot of time to eat at real restaurants or healthier places. We have to eat at places we can drive thru if possible or pack our food, but, unfortunately, I usually don't.

    I don't like eating fast food but it does happen!
