    Definition of McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, Wendy's, etc.: ****** food filled with **** chemicals made in ****** conditions by employees that don't give a **** about you. The last part happens to the best due to fast pace eventually. All this combines to make these places inedible; should be avoided!

    Stop fueling these unappetizing, unhealthy excuses for food. Go to local restaurants and smaller chains that care about quality. For a few dollars more, the difference between even McDonald's and a SmashBurger is huge.

    Same goes with pizza. I'm sure you have better family-run pizza joints around you at similar prices. How stupid do some people have to be to order from Papa John's or Domino's?

    It's a matter of finding what's around and looking up deals/coupons if you're looking for value. There's no value in McNuggets no matter the price.

    Edit: This thread is being taken for saying a point it's not. It's not against unhealthy food; I'm against fast food restaurants when you can get unhealthy food at tastier places with some nutrition! Support local businesses and stop eating chemicals.

    I'm all for eating healthy and having a healthier lifestyle
    But I don't presume to make choices for others, only me
    That's because I wouldn't want them making any choices for me

    Okay man.

    Look, I know a great deal of people who have chosen a healthier lifestyle. I am all for it. What I don't care for is when these people are hypocrites about it and act as though they never made a bad choice, ate like ****, drank too much, etc.


    As far as the rant, people will always go there. You just need to choose not to and leave it be.

    I'm 61 years old and have had my share of fast food, and still do. Guess what? I'm still thin and healthy. You have a choice my friend. Don't eat it if you don't like it! Don't dictate to me just because there are fat slobs out there what I can and cannot eat. I hate people like you!!!

    Says the person from NJ :D.

    Vegetarians have similar opinions except that it's meat we should not eat. To each there own and why worry about what others are eating.

    Oh, I'm all for eating steak and french fries. I'm in no way saying you have to eat organic carrots and chicken; I don't! It's just that McDonald's isn't food. Yes, eat chicken nuggets! Just not chicken nuggets made with more chemicals and fillers than chickens. The big fast food places are sellouts. Eat burgers, fries, etc. but don't fuel chemical food made in disgusting kitchens.

    ----------

    NJ is home to a lot of delicious, healthy restaurants; don't let Christie fool you.

    It's not about not eating fries, burgers, etc. Eat those but support local businesses that sell them that don't sell out nutrition for money.

    French fries with steak? Comeon. Go whole hog and get a giant loaded baked potato, smothered in butter, sour cream, with huge lumps of cheddar melted in, and covered in bacon bits and chives.

    It's healthier than french fries because it's a potato. And potatoes are vegetables.

    Wait wait, now if potatoes are vegetables and therefore healthy and french fries are potatoes then french fries = vegetables.

    See good thing we are on a forum dedicated to computers and electronic things cause we know logic!

    I've yet to find any chicken nuggets that appeal to me more than Mickey D's; therefore I will continue to eat chicken nuggets from there.

    Deal with it. :cool:

    No offense but just because you don't like them means we close every one of them.

    I enjoy the freedom of choice, your choice is to just ignore them and choose somewhere else to eat

    Edit: many of the pizza chains makes very good food and I enjoy them, as do many other people.

    Nothing beats McD's fries when they are right out of the oil.

    Sure the food is unhealthy but they have a right to remain open just as we have the right to eat what we choose.

    So what happens to all those guys making not much more than minimum wage.

    You have just chosen the dole queue for them.

    Vote with your feet. If you don't want to eat there, then don't. I had a McDonalds meal for lunch today. Do I feel guilty? No. It was the only the second time I had one this year.

    Judge me all you like, but we all no what we should eat, and what we want to it. Generally (for me) they are not the same. As long as you keep the stuff in moderation whats the problem?

    Oh boy, those 2 Egg McMuffins I had yesterday morning were delightful. It will probably take a year or 2 off my life, but what the heck. I'm enjoying my life. What's wrong with that?

    The only place I can sortakinda agree with the original poster on is Taco Bell. Not that it's terrible or anything, but...well...since they started advertising their meat as "protein" rather than "beef", I've been kinda suspicious of it.

    Call me old fashioned, but I like having a basic idea of what I'm eating. Beef is kinda straightforward. It has to have a certain amount of parts we generally eat from the cow to be considered beef. Protein? That could be anything. I could be chowing down on chicken gizzards and chum for all I know.

    The only thing I get from Taco Bell these days are black bean burritos and Baja Blast Mountain Dews. The latter I get because, well...it's a safe way to address my antifreeze addiction.

    A pizza with crumbled, evenly spread beef, black olives, and mushrooms is THE BEST! Now that you've brought it up, I think I'm gonna get one for dinner tonight.

    I really have to stop reading this thread. It's making me crave crappy unhealthy fast food more than ever. To the OP, no offense, this thread is backfiring on you big time! lol!

    I don't think the OP is saying, "don't eat burgers/fries/pizza/whatever because it'll make you fat!" I think he is saying not to eat at the chains because the food they make there is lesser quality than what you would find at a local, independantly run restaurant making the same type of foods. Which I could understand and agree with. However, say what you will about it, I love me some Pizza Hut, Dominos, McDonald's, etc. And not only do I enjoy eating at these places, it's more affordable, faster, and often more accessible than locally owned/run places.
