How Often Do You Eat Fast Food?

Mon Jan 08, 2007 7:59 am

I'm trying to get a cross nation opinion. How many times do you eat fast food? I'm talking about all those places where you can get food served in under 15 minutes. I'd list of the names of places but there are so many.

Personally about once or twice a month. I know people who eat there once a week. Does anybody eat the "sinful food" everyday?

I eat fast food about 1-2 times a week, mainly cos it's fast and I'm pushed for time.

My employees eat McDonalds/BK every day. Grim!

Every wednesday after bowling practise. Either a fast hot pretzel at the bowling alley for €2, or 2 Chickenburgers at McD's for the same price. In the end, cost is the same  Wink .

Actually when compared to the alternatives (supermarket sandwiches or fast food sub shops) it's pretty cheap. But not as cheap as making lunch yourself though.

I only normally eat Fast Food when I'm in a hurry, that may sound obvious, but generally I grab a Burger King at the airport just before I fly because having checked in online, there is no need to get to the airport hours before the flight leaves and I don't have time for anything else, or similarly at a station before I get on a train somewhere.

An average of say 1-2 times a week I'd say.

I go to the cinema every week (wednesday - thankyou orange, means i can save a few £££ while taking her), and we always get a KFC to share.

So once a week.

Oh and then maybe a pizza or a curry or a chinese at the weekend.


and a BK if I'm hungry...

Ok call it 2/3 times a week

Cheers!

Maybe 2-3 times a month and it's usually Food Court food i.e., sushi, gourmet salads, or a plate lunch/meat-and-threes (not burger and fries, tacos, or fried chicken).

Everyday, for lunch and dinner.

Mind you, lunch is usually a quick sandwich or a pasta dish (both done in about 5 mins). For dinner, I usually go to a Hawker Center for some Asian delicacies. It's much, much cheaper than buying groceries and cooking your own food, at least in Singapore.

Fast food....?

If it's junk food, then it's maybe five times... eight years.

If it's healthy food like kebablars, then it's maybe thrice in a month, sometimes less.

Go kebablars! You delicious guys.  Silly

I always eat fast food on the weekends but not only unhealthy stuff, mostly I eat stuff like pasta along with a mixed salad or a Kebab which are not really unhealthy and which do not cost the world.

As for McD, BK or so: I don't visit these places as as often as I used to. I fed up with their burgers, the same shit all the time. I would definitely eat more fast food when Carl's Jr., or Wendy's, or In-N-Out would come to Germany.

Anyway back to your question,

I eat Mcdonald's/BK/KFC type fast food around twice a month.

Other fast food like Boot's sandwiches I usually have around 1-2 a week.

Slightly healthier fast food like Subway and Gregg's are also around twice a month, might be more but depends how often I go into town.

I probably eat fast food a couple times a week. I work long-ish days, and on campus I'll usually get Chinese take out to eat in my office. On days off I usually eat at home, but about once every 2-3 weeks I can't resist In-n-Out. I may burn in hell for that, but who cares?

Haven't touched Taco Bell since...  no  I maybe eat fast food...2 times a week. Usually Subway in an attempt to eat "healthy". Just wish I had the metabolism I had back in high school.

When I was flying domestic I ended up eating fast food six, seven times a week on the road. Often I'd settle for a ready-made sandwich and a Pepsi at Apu's Quickee-Mart and eat it back in my room. (hence SlamClick)

When I was in domicile I eventually quit eating it, not because of the food but because "fast food" service is so SLOW! It infuriated me watching the employees move their hands so slowly, five or ten seconds to get the change from the register to your hand, for example. It was like watching a friggin' mime or something.

So I found a few family style diners with a decent menu and started going to those if I wasn't cooking for myself. The total elapsed time to go out and get a quarter-pounder at les arcs d'or or doing a walk-in sit-down real meal was about the same.

Now that I live at home again - never! Well, only when the grand kids want a McWhatever-meal.

In terms of what people think fast food is (McDonalds, etc) I would say I eat it at most twice a month. I consider fast food to be the unhealty burger/fries type places. If you consider any place were you order it at the counter and get it "fast" then I would say maybe once a week at like Subway or Quiznos. Even more if they have coupons out.
