If only we knew eating high calorie foods with little to no exercise was bad for us...

Quite simply, taste. Natural foods taste good. Processed foods taste better. Sweeter, saltier, more fatty. Portion sizes don't help either.

Also other factors, like price, time saving and availability and our biology. Why cook a meal that will take over an hour to shop for, clean, prepare and cook when you can hit a mcdonalds and be in and out in 15 minutes?

Im guilty of eating ****ty food. Planning on changing it, but it will not be easy because I will crave those foods I need to avoid.

Fast food really isn't that fast.

Get into your car -- drive 5 to 10 minutes. Wait at the drive-thru. Go back home. ~ 20 minutes.

In 20 minutes you can make yourself a great meal. It takes no effort to be a good cook or to eat healthy. It takes willpower.

IF and only if you spend 45 minutes going to the grocery store recently....

Lol. It takes me about 20 minutes to get all my groceries because I make a list before I go. Not that tough to eat healthy. People just want to give excuses. I make excellent meals every day and the most it takes me is 50 minutes -- but then again, that is just waiting for a potato to bake.

What's bad about me is that even though I only eat maybe 1 or 2 fast food meals a week, my problem is that I cook for taste, not health. And on the few occasions that I let my wife cook, it has to be chicken and rice and the rice needs to be fried with either garlic or cheese mixed in. Otherwise I'm turning on the deep fryer and making some cheddar cheese jalepeno poppers.

Have to say I am sick of potatoes.

Fast food is just so damn expensive anymore too. It costs like $20-$30 to feed a family of 4 going to a Wendy's or McDonald's or Sonic. Can cook 2-3 meals for a family at that price.

$20-30 wont cover the cost of meat at my grocery store. Also sucks because the best produce is at City Market in Canon City, and its usually about .30 to a dollar more per pound then the market in Florence...

Stupid ass small towns.

Damn. My little trick is I just go to the section at King Soopers where they mark the meat down because it's about to go bad and either cook it that night or freeze it. It's saved me quite a bit.

Big D's (market in Florence) actually has a really good meat counter. But in the past year everything has gone up in price. Even peanut butter. $6 for a small jar. **** that noise.

I try to eat healthy. I rarely eat fast food. Sometimes I just need to get my fix of the Doritos Locos Taco and Baja Blast from Taco Bell...or the Oreo Overload from Cold Stone. I do go to the gym on a regular basis.

I just watched the author on Dr. Oz (no homo). Talked about how the food industry uses these to make their food addictive. Them bastards.

Y'know, about 13 months ago, sudden health issues, mainly panic attacks, forced me to give up cigs, booze, pot and caffeine. I battled through all that (20 yrs of habitual use, mid 30s) and beat em after a year. Of course, I put on some weight and finally set out to kick all the bad food (love sweets n fast food), sort of the final frontier of good health.

Cannot even begin to tell you how much more difficult it's been to kick sugar and salt. Also, when I go a few days on a healthy diet, the difference physically and mentally is shocking. I think it trumps all. Stupid bad food is an epidemic getting relatively small attention but which should really be at the very top of the list, next to environmental decay.

Damn what kind of grocery store do you go to Chris?

I'm with you dirty, I go to Safeway or kings and find the Clarence food. Usually all the marked down food lasts for about 5 days uncooked in the fridge. With $20 I can get 3 rib eyes, 4 filets of fish and some meat for a stir fry. That's enough for 3 solid nights worth of meals and then enough for leftovers another night or two. Add I'm some veggies, acorn squash ($2 for $4) two bell peppers $2, and .5 lb green beans $1 and we are eating good for $30 a week.

I love it when they have the f,ily packs on Clearence, a few weeks ago they had a 12lb hunk of beef, not sure what kind, marked down from $27 to 16 and then another 50% off that. So for $8 I made a stew, a teriyaki crock pot beef bowl, and Indian satay shush kabobs. Love it!

Because it tastes good and humans in general are impulsive and place the present before the future? Why do women tan like mad when it leads to leather skin and cancer later on. Same thing.

Yeah dude it's crazy. I used to only eat fast food. Didnt want to cook, didnt care to, didnt know how. I never felt sick or weak or tired or anything, but now that I eat healthy, it's like a completely new world. It's so weird. You just feel lighter or something, like a little bit of movement goes a long way. And the energy part is nuts. Like I said I never lacked energy, but now that I am healthy it's like Heroin. I've got all kinds of energy all the time and rarely need rest breaks. Comes in handy so much when we go to Vegas. Obviously nothing is healthy in Vegas, but I'm always going strong and recover do much. Better.

Gave up Fast food for lent. Well, except on Friday and the fish deals going on. Carls Jr is pretty good. I should lose some lbs giving it up for 40 days.

It is when you have kids.

We try not to eat fast food very often, but sometimes you get tired, or bored with your home menu, or mostly busy running from daycare, to kung fu, to baseball practice, to pick up the car at the shop, etc. "Let's just go to Wendy's it's on the way."
