    OK, here's another one of those stupid, boring topics from me, but I just caught myself unintentionally eating from McD's 2 days in a row, lunch yesterday and dinner now. And I think I had a Subway earlier this week. Who else catches themselves doing this?

    When was the last time you ate fastfood, where was it from and what did you get?

    I went to the Jack in the Box drive through late this afternoon because at 3:00 I realized that I had not eaten anything all day, so I thought it would probably be a good idea to eat some lunch and nothing really sounded appetizing. Jack in the Box was the closest fast food, so I got a Sourdough Jack burger. It was ok, nothing to write home about. My favorite fast food is Sonic--it's the bomb.

    I went to a Sonic when I visited family in Texas a few years ago. It was excellent. We don't have those in my neck of the woods.

    Pretty much only when hung over. Not sure hwether it's sad or happy news, but nowadays, that tends to be about once every three weeks to a month.

    Last fast food: Burger King on E 47th Street and Lexington about a month ago. I don't count take-out chinese as fast food in the sense you're describing it, otherwise it would be every other day or so.

    Here's my crackpot theory, TAG: mothers who are breastfeeding instinctively know what their baby needs. What an infant needs is FAT.

    Brain cells are composed of (amongst other things) myelin, which is pretty much all fat. (True, jonb? You always seem to know about these things). That's why they have warning labels on skim milk which say it's not suitable for infants.

    So haul into those french fries, TAG, and get your kid into Harvard.

    I just realised after reading that that I'd eaten fast food two days in a row, a MickeyD's yesterday and a subway this morning. Strange...

    There was a time when I ate fast food all the time. Now, not so much.
    Last time I had fast food, I got it from Subway and I had one of their low-fat,
    low carb subs with a diet soda and baked lays. Hard to maintain my build
    on fast food.

    A couple of times a week, I grab a 6" Veggie from Subway with extra cheese. To me, it is the best sandwich on the menu.

    HB8, that'd be a great excuse, but I stopped nursing a few weeks ago. Believe it or not, my little one will already be turning a year old in a few weeks. Damn....time flies.

    If you work or dwell in an area where fast food is close by, it takes a strong will to avoid it. Its so easy to get hooked on it.

    Personally, I try to avoid fast food as much as possible, alot more since
    I've watched Super Size Me.
    But being an industrial electrician I often work late and don't
    really feel like cooking, so I usually hit up Wendy's
    for a classic double w/cheese, or I go to Rotten Ronnie's
    for a double quarter pounder w/cheese.(there's a pattern here I guess)

    But I try to keep my wife from feeding our daughter McDonalds
    too much. I don't want my little girl to get hooked so young.

    My last fast-food meal was Tuesday from a local place, Gertrude's Kountry Drive-Throo. I had the spicy cayenne chicken tenders, which are double batter-dipped and fried in peanut oil, and fried julienne eggplant. Yes, I realise it's not the healthiest food in the world, and yes, I enjoyed every monounsaturated bite! And I'll without doubt do it again before long.

    It's just convenient to pick it up when you're still a college student. Thankfully, there are some better choices around so I won't end up clogging my heart on McDonald's. Then again, my silly ass will eat a country fried steak too. I guess it's all in balance.

    I try to avoid them on a daily or even weekly basis, but I 'treat' myself a couple of times a month. Even then, I try to stick to the grilled chicken sandwiches or the chicken based Taco Bell items. Of course the fries and soft drinks don't help. :(

    I used to order the kids meals when the Teeny Beanie Bears were hot. I have some nieces that loved them so I had to help out! I'm glad those promotions are over, or I'd weigh even more! :)

    LapDog :p

    Yeah, that's convincing....;)

    Last fast food I had was a veggie sub at Subway and that was years ago. Between the processing issues, the prep cleanliness questions, and the lack of veggie choices, fast food just ain't my bag.

    While I was in New Orleans I really missed Gertrude's. When I read this post last night I had to get me something to eat at Gertrude's. I had the Grilled Chicken 'n' Crudité Sammidge with Dill Sauce and an order of spicy Home Chips. Good shit!
