Ever since I was about 15 or 16 I haven't had that wretched crap. In fact I've limited my diet since then to the most unhealthy things being coffee and chips and the occasional Arbys. I'll only eat Angus or turkey burgers and no I don't consider the majority of fast food joints food. Food is supposed to help your body, or at the very least provide sustenance. Any time I would eat mcDonalds I would end up getting sick and puking, mostly because my colitis would act up after ward and I'd get sick to my stomach but more often than not it was because generally the food sucked.
When ever I graduate college in the next semester or so and I have far less stress I'm going to try to eat mainly things I cook that aren't processed.
To me it's not a vicious process of denial, for me its a steady progression toward eating things that I wouldn't even wish prisoners to eat.

I seldom eat there, I lost 15 pounds since I stopped visiting places like that so often. I was getting food from Taco Bell or Arby's on certain nights to take to work, but it's not a good habit. I think there needs to be laws against chemicals being in food that shouldn't be there. That's not right.
I'm glad you don't eat the fires. That would be bad.
I'll never understand why everyone around me was practically raised on the stuff and the moment they hear what they've been eating they vow never to eat it again. It doesn't hurt anybody, unless you're trying to one-up Supersize Me. I guess being perfectly healthy is too much for them.
I like their food, 'nuff said. It hasn't affected me in any fashion, and neither has any other fast food chain. Why should I shun it?
Yeah... the doctors were like STAHP and he was like "Nope! My liver may be made of fat at this point but I've got a week left of McDieting! Hope ya don't prepare my obituary to soon!"
Needless to say, it affected everyone in the classroom but me. Apparently if a man eats fast food every day thrice a day and gets fat, it turns people off to even touching it. Because their logic dictates that if they eat it occasionally, or even sparingly, then they too will become an obese monster.
I'm on welfare and I spend less money on healthy and fresh food (Or at least decent)than I would eating out every day or Buying frozen and convenient meals.
If you are on a budget, start by buying a bag of rice, potatoes, pasta, eggs ect all are cheap and last for a while, If you can't afford fresh veg then buy some frozen mixed veg...Not as good obviously but if you cook it perfectly there shouldnt be to much of a loss of nutrients and the same goes for fruit, can't afford it? Buy it tinned, not ideal but its better than not eating it at all. And you can get a lot fibre from certain cereals such as AllBran to save money. And don't go shopping at the "big" stores that say they are cheap, shop around, If you have an Aldi or Lidl or even check your local stores to see what the prices are there...
Freshly baked baguettes are also cheap, high in energy, good for you and make a great lunch/tea. There is so much you can find on a budget and so much you can do.
Also your excuse is pretty silly to begin with...If you were employed and had the money you are more likely to buy fast food and convenience food due to time constraints, But since you are unemployed you should have more time to shop around for cheap healthy food and whip it up in the kitchen! Also, You have more time for exercise.
Considering I live next to a food bank and other "local stores" including an Aldi, I think I can tell what is cheaper and what isn't. It just seems that you're trying to insult my intelligence or attempting to get a negative reaction. Frankly, I'm not interested in giving you one. Seeing as you're in Ireland, you know how early it is in the UK and the fact is I'm tired. I'm really not in the mood for people who think they know everything about the world or even the area and pricing of stores around where I live whilst in a completely different country. I'm pretty sure if I could afford shit, I wouldn't have to ask my cousins or sister if they have any cereal I can eat for dinners. And yes, I am on a budget but you don't know my financial situations at all now, do you? How about you get down from your high horse and stop assuming that I'm 'just being silly'.
I know you probably didn't mean to offend me or probably phrase it in such a way that I would take it wrongly but I'm fed up of people pretty much belittling my intelligence. So yeah. I'm just ending this conversation now.
I liked to go to McDonalds when I was a child, mainly because of the toys and the playgrounds. Then I haven't eaten there for almost ... 7 years? The last time was in Austria at midnight and it tasted so bad! The salad was so bitter and the sauce for the chicken nuggets smelled strange... I don't know what they put in there, but my stomach did hurt the rest of the night. It tasted better when I was little. o_O
Anyway, I really try to stay away from McDonalds. I'd rather go to Subway, eat a Döner or Chinese. And if I want french fries, there's a Currywurst hut around the corner.
Used to. Then one day, I opened a box of their chicken nuggets and took a bite out of one..... The damned thing wasn't even cooked. It was raw. Could never stand to eat anything from there again, though sometimes their fries tempt me with their delicious saltiness. But no, I haven't had McDonalds for quite a few years now....
I had McD's for the first time in a long time last month when the power went out. Have to admit, it was kind of tasty, but I wouldn't say I missed it. It was just a high-calorie "boost" of sorts (had a plain filet-o-fish and some fries). I was actually more excited about drinking soda pop because I never allow myself to drink the stuff.
