Go often? Even healthy food at fast food places aren't healthy. I remember salads at McDonalds were basically a meat patty on top of a little bit of lettuce. There's this one chain that has baked patato. You can't mess that up unless they put tons of butter and sour cream when they give it to you. I like Del Taco for junk food, though..

I eat fast food at least 2-3 times a week it seems like, mainly because that is where my family eats, I don't mind it that much, but it gets old after a while.

I only go to two fast food joints on a notable basis:

(1) Taco Bell. I get the same thing about once every two weeks: 2 or 3 1/2lb beef and potato burritos, or;
(2) Also about once every two weeks: 1 or 2 XL pizzas from Maxwell St. Pizza Parlor.

It's my habit to cook at home; the European eating lifestyle.

I eat it maybe once a week. I do not get fast
food that often. When I lived with my family we
had it maybe once a month or so. It is quite unhealthy
to eat it too often. Although that applies to everything.

I don't eat fast food all too often and even fi I do, I get stuff with tons of vegetables and other healthier goodies. In a given month, I may only eat fast food once or twice given time constraints and other things. I can't stand eating fast food at all. But I do need energy and often. I've gotten to the point where I don't drink soda anymore either.

I don't eat fast food at all. I used to but, I don't think it fulfills any true appetite

Fast food is yummy :) but sometimes the people who give it to me put me off.

Only when nothing else is within reasonable reach. If I'm btwn classes, I'll grab a slice to go. If there's no dinner ready and it's a bit late or I don't feel like cooking a decent meal (not Ramen or microwaveable frozens) I might buy a sandwich or some "chinese" food.

I think it's interesting how many places (diff't cities and even countries) have special fast food joints, and I'm not talking about local diners or privately owned eateries; I'm talking fast food. For instance, here in NYC, I've never come across a Jack in the Box. While in Europe and Canada, I saw their own fast food places whose quality, in individual cases, were on par, far below and even superior to American joints; though that isn't much of a feat when we're talking about McDo.

Speaking of McDo, I can't even eat there anymore.

I've been eating some pizza and chinese food but soon I plan to cut it all out. Seriously, I just don't feel it's healthy for me. Got to eat some grilled food too though.

Most salads at fast food places are really high in calories. It's just not the fat, but the salt and how most of the stuff at such places are processed foods.

These days either I get Chinese food or Subway (which I don't mind, since subway is really healthy).

Other than that, I eat tons of cereal, fruit, and vegetables (oh, and Top Ramen of course!).

Store bought ramen is filled with sodium and Subway has a lot of unhealthy food with high calories and even fat. Weird since for so long Subway has tried to portray itself as a healthy alternative, but the desire for competing with fast food won.

Really? Maybe I brought into their food without proper research. Sandwiches should be healthier than fried food...but I don't put oil and vinegar on my stuff anymore either.

I usually get a cheese steak sub or big hot pastrami. Still, I don't eat out often. I try to eat a lot of cereal, apples, bananas, water, and milk. Lots of veggies too, number one chinese food is sooooooooooo good!

I think as long as you don't put a bunch of crap on your sandwich, it beats just about every other place (maybe except Boston Market, hmmm hmmm).
