Do You Love Fast Food Too Much to Give It Up?

Move over fast-food loving Americans, Britain has topped the list of countries who love fast food. In a joint study with the BBC, polling body Synovate determined that 45 percent of Britons agreed with the statement, "I love fast food too much to give it up." This is one percent higher than Americans and eight percent higher than Canadians. Granted, one percent is not that much, and I'm sure the poll has a small margin for error, but still it's interesting to see that we're not the only ones who love fast food.

So how about you, what do you think of the statement? Do you love fast food that much?

I could give it up. The only fast food I ever eat anymore is the occasional turkey sandwich at subway...and that's only when I run out of food and don't have time to go to the grocery store. I think fast food foods are tasty (hamburgers, tacos, fried chicken, etc), but if I'm going to eat those things, I'd much rather make them at home and know exactly what goes in and know that what I'm eating is better for me. My guidelines when it comes to eating "bad" food is to make it worth it...if I'm going to have choclate cake, it's going to be GOOD cake, not little debbie. Likewise, if I'm going to have a hamburger, its going to be a good one, not a tiny little nasty meat patty slapped on a bun.

I have tried to give it up! But after a few days or weeks I just get the craving and I'm back to fast food.

I never really had opportunities to eat it as a child, so when I got to college I ate it all the time. Now I do about once or twice a month but I don't know if I could give it up completely.

Fast food disgusts me. Although, I do eat at Subway on occasion. Even then I only eat the Veggie sandwich because I'm a vegetarian.

Convenient?! I find it extremely inconvenient to stop-what-i-am-doing, wait in a line, deal with incompetent people and never get what i actually ordered!!!

I try to eat it in moderation anyway, but if I developed a health condition or something that made fast food a big no-no I would definately give it up. I'd miss those whopper jr's though! :(

I don't love it too much to give it up, I'm just too lazy.

I never eat fast food - never did, never will. My parents didn't take us for fast food when we were kids so I never developed a taste for it. I find most prepared food too salty and greasy for my likes anyway, so I don't think I'm in real trouble here. I like my food flavourful and fresh! Homemade curry all the way! That's my comfort food.

OMG, you guys are sooo much stronger than me. I don't eat there every day, but I need my Chic-fil-a or McD's fix every once in a while...it gives me something to look forward to. :)

i agree with herojiedevivre, i rarely eat junk food (i don't even have anything that is worthy of being called junk food in my house) but sometimes i get these cravings for fast food and i get it when i'm out and about. for example today i have been craving for subway for days and after my internship i rewarded my self.

yall are CRAZY people! I don't eat junk food that much- maybe once or twice a month- but when that craving for a wendy's #1 with fries and a frosty comes, IT MUST BE SERVED

My "least meal if on death row" would be from McDonald's. I'm embarassed but I can get enough! But I wonder, maybe I'm obsessed because I never let myself have it.......

I've basically already given it up. I eat Fast Food maybe once every few months. Taco Bell when I can't make it to FreeBirds to get a burrito, and McDonald's wraps when in a hurry on a late night road trip.

I'd totally give it up. If everybody gave it up there'd be so more healthier choices.

I pretty gave it up in 2005, except for the occasional fruit and yogurt parfait from McDonald's when I'm on the road or whatever.

Oh this would be a snap for me since I don't like fast food much. I only eat it when I have no other choice, like on a road trip or something.

Gave it up -early 2004 before I applied for gastric bypass surgery. Got stick of feeling jipped after eating at McD's or Taco Bell (Hey that's not how that should taste or that wasn't really what I wanted!). Haven't gone back but sometimes I do end up going hungry if I have to make an emergency long distance road trip cause that's all there is long the road - In n Out, McD, BK, TB, Subway - yuck.

i wish i could say yes. I only eat chain fast-food only a couple times a year and usually while on road trips. I could do without that. However if my favorite taqueria is considered fast food, it's going to be tough.

Other than Subway or D'Angelo's, I really don't eat fast food.

i always thought that it would be hard to give it up - but now that i don't eat any meat and i'm in NYC - there are so many more things to have that i haven't had any fast food in months.
