How often do you eat fast food??

Occording to studies done, 1 out of 4 Americans eat fast food everyday. This has made a contribution to the 60 percent of Americans who are overweight/obese in the US. So my question to everyone is how often do you eat McDonalds, Burger King, Taco Bell, etc??

I enjoy McDonalds french fries on the occasional long drive, but that's it. I find meat from these establishments repulsive.

Never go to McDonalds or Burger King but I have fish and chips or a pizza maybe once a fortnight. I don't think it's unhealthy in moderation. Having hang ups about certain kinds of foods or food types is unhealthy.

Maybe once a month if I'm desperate. But, luckily I'm a vegetarian and these places barely cater for my kind of people

Way more than I should. Maybe 3 times a week.

I worked at Maccas (McDonalds) for 3 years and I sure as hell make sure I get a fresh burger everytime. I know all their tricks.

2 or 3 times a month. I once went to McDonalds every lunchtime for about 3 weeks. Eventually you just start to feel sick. I was about 12 at the time so really wasn't aware of what fast food does to you.

I've been quite bad this week though. I went to pizza hut on Friday and then had a chinese takeaway on Saturday.

Very hard to resist fast food sometimes. Where I stay there a 3 McDonalds all within a few hundred yards of each other, plus all the pizza places.

never eat at McDonalds or Burger King, but that's because i don't like burgers. occasionally have a KFC but the last time must have been about 3 or 4 months ago
if i eat "fast food" i'd prefer a pizza or a Chinese or Indian takeaway though i prefer to make food myself

Hardly ever. Once a month at the absolute most.

Well, I walk into the room
Passing out hundred dollar bills
And it kills and it thrills like the horns on my Silverado grill
And I buy the bar a double round of crown
And everybody's getting down
And this town ain't never gonna be the same.
Cause I saddle up my horse and I ride into the city
I make a lot of noise
Cause the girls, they are so pretty...

All
ez Amélie!

I love burgers! But have managed to restrict myself to a McDonalds once a fortnight.

Once a month..or even less; Pizza Hut. I used to go to a hamburger restaurant (Quick) three/four times a month before I became a vegetarian...

Chinese Takeaway. Pizza, Kebabs, and fish and chips --- all a must.

Not big on maccas, kfc or burger king.
I like the odd cheeseburger when im hungover though... nothing beats driving through maccas at 3:30am for a large double cheeseburger meal after nightclubbing!
