Yes, and with 3 children to drive around to various activities, far too often. I do love McD’s, though

Sadly, yes. I eat dollar menu items at McD’s and Wendy’s at least once a week, simply because I’m out and about and on a budget. But are we counting Chipotle and Panera?

Yes we do! Wendy’s, Burger King, Taco Bell, you name it…

The root of all evil! I have to paint a mental image of those people on hoverchairs from Wall-E as a motivator to “keep on driving”...it’s working so far!

Gotta wean slowly though…family and I have cut off the fries and sodas-yay!

Yes, and too often. Usually Del Taco or Togos. Burger King has a good veggie burger too.

True fast food? Not like Subway or Baja Fresh, right? The only fast food restaurant I eat at is Taco Bell, and then I only eat the bean & cheese burritos; no onions, please. Oh wait. When traveling I’ll eat Jack in the Crack’s (Box) breakfast croissant with egg only. I’m just too picky to eat most fast food.

I do occasionally. I used to eat fast food all the time, but then I started watching what I eat and found that I actually liked a lot of the healthier alternatives. Now when I eat fast food, I usually feel gross, like I have a heavy, greasy lump in my stomach (which I guess is more or less correct).

No way Jose. I hit the taco-wagons pretty hard though.

I do too peedub!

@tinyfarie: I like “jack in the crack” as well! :)

Rarely (i.e. once every few months). I only stoop to that level when I’m with my friends and we lack adeqaute money for a proper meal. Recently, I’m all about cleasning my body and trying to avoid poison like Big Macs. I know it tastes like Heaven in every bite but after seeing what its “cooked” in, I decided to it’s not the best nutrition for the body.

I do. It’s so easy and cheep. I’m trying to put on some weight now so I’ve been hitting burger joints pretty hard the past week or two. I’ll be glad when I get to the desired weight and body fat so I can go back to more “normal” eating habits.

Not often, but when I do it’s either Del Taco or In-n-Out.

jamzzy's avatar

I don’t, really. I’m generally one of those brown rice and tofu types, but last night I had a few stuffed jalepenos from Jack in the Box (love many of their commercials, by the way) and they were AMAZING and well worth the despair I felt this morning when I realized what I had shoved into my digestive tract. :-) I dipped them in the ranch dressing that was supplied along side.
