    1.) "Fast Food" joints are trying to kill us all - one meal at a time! I firmly believe that.

    2.) I wish I could say never, but sometimes when on the road there is little choice. Maybe once per month, and then I try to stick to salads (even those are ridiculously high in calories).

    3.) Two scrambled eggs and a whole wheat bagel with lots of hot, black coffee, and 8oz of yogurt.

    Poison.

    Once or twice a year. (Throw away the bun, though.)

    Two-egg omelet, sometimes with a slice of cheese or a bit of meat, sometimes just with veggies.

    1. In general? Fast foods are too high in salt and fats, and sugar if you include soft drinks. They are also vastly overpriced relative to their nutritional value.

    2. How often? Less than once a month, and just something with an egg for breakfast.

    3. Typical breakfast is oatmeal, OJ and coffee on workdays.

    Typical breakfast: Whole wheat toast with 2 organic eggs (from my next door neighbor) and some orange juice.
    I eat fast food only from subway and blimpies, perhaps once every two months. They offer fresh offerings and a plain sandwich is better for you then some of the salads served elsewhere. Generally, I pack my lunch so I know what's in it.
    I haven't been to a typical fast food joint (McDonalds, Wendy's, etc) in 8 - 10 years. I have lost 60 pounds in 4 years.

    How do you feel about fast food in general? (the stereotypical stuff like McDonalds, Burger King, etc)

    Too much fat and salt. Never looks like the food in the commercials!



    How often do you eat fast food? (daily, weekly, monthly, never?)

    Almost never.



    And what do you typically have for breakfast?

    Same thing everyday: Kashi Go Lean cereal w/ unsweetened almond milk and blueberries.
    1 egg.

    It's loaded with fat and salt not to mention lips & you know. I wouldn't feed it to my dog. Except for McRibs.

    Rarely!

    My rotation is usually eggs with sausage or bacon, pancakes or waffles with blueberries, strawberries or peaches, or oatmeal with fresh fruit and brown sugar. This morning I had Swedish pancakes with fresh Door County cherry compote. My wife freezes fresh cherries we pick in DC, WI., Fresh peaches from Calhoun Co., IL and blueberries from wherever we can pick them. We eat a lot of fresh strawberries during the FL. season.

    I see it as a necessary evil.

    I only ever have it for breakfast, and very rarely for lunch. Those times, it's when I don't have time for anything else and have to get food on the way from one place to another. There was a time I was working a lot and would eat fast food two or three times a week.

    I think it's very bad food, but slightly better than not eating at all.

    I rarely eat breakfast, so when I do resort to fast food, it's usually a late breakfast and out of desperation.

    By the way, there is one exception to this rule. McDonald's Egg McMuffins are the perfect hangover cure.

    Now that I work from home and have a flexible schedule, I've gone back to eating fast food at most one time a month, again, if I'm pinched for time and absolutely have to.

    It is horrible. If a pack of gum costs more than your burritto, what do you think you are eating? It isn't meat!

    National chains- NEVER I haven't had a BK, McDonalds, Wendy's etc for about 7 or 9 years local establishments, a lot

    Cereal or protein shake

    1. Fast food in general is so-so, but you can pick out the good and ignore the bad at almost any fast food joint.
    2. I'll eat it anytime as long as it's not meat or dairy.
    3. Coffee with almond milk, toast w/smart balance or vegan fruit pie, home-blended fruit/veggie drink.

    No meat / no dairy keeps the weight off for me. Everything else is a go, even sweets.

    1. It works for what it is, but everything in moderation, all those calories, carbs and fat aren't helping anything.
    2. Maybe once or twice a week, generally Taco Bell, sometimes Wendy's or Subway, almost never anything else.
    3. Coffee

    1. If you aren't a couch slug, it's not a magical elixir that will make you obese, raise your BP, and cause congestive heart failure. Everything in moderation, and stay active. Some of it is damn tasty.
    2. 2-3 times a week
    3. 3 poached eggs, 1 slice of dry toast made with Orowheat 12 grain bread, green chili, large glass of OJ. If in a hurry, a bowl of Raisin Bran and OJ instead.

    1- I don't care for it any more, but there have been times when I have had the cravings for some.
    2- I have not been in a fast food restaurant since Sept 2010.
    3- I eat anything that I want, but usually is only coffee on my walk to work and a banana or instant cream of wheat later in the morning. I do cook something traditional for breakfast on the weekends (oatmeal, eggs, bacon, etc.)

    Thanks for the input! Personally, I love the stuff. I've dropped 92 lbs eating fast food more than once/day one average. I usually have an Egg McMuffin for breakfast. For me, it's about the choices made, and I believe that what most people eat as a "healthy" breakfast, really isn't.
