Man is my tummy aching. One of the managers here at work brought in 5 bags full of McDon's sausage biscuits. That thing has had me gassy all morning long. WTF!

yeah, some of their food aint bad. I like the "Big Tasty" burger and I like the milk shakes they do.

When I was 16 I went through a stage of not eating there due to moral reasons... I gave that up some time when I was hungry and there was nothing else open that late at age 23.

By age 40 I'll prolly be to the right of Ustwo politically!

ah, well chilli con carne is about the only meal I can cook properly... although my American mate tells me I should have it with something called "cornbread"

Probably anyone who is from Mexico would be as pissed off with someone claiming they "love Mexican food" cos they like chilli as I would think someone was ridicolous in claiming they "loved English food" cos they like Fish and Chips... but I do love chilli and beef!

Cornbread
Be sure it's real, stone ground yellow cornmeal.

Within the past 24 hours, I ate around 1 - 1.5 lbs. of sausage from a small family farm. (They were gifts.) They were tasty, and I feel fine.

Why is it that my stomach feels like I swallowed something I shouldn't have after eating only one "sausage" patty at McDonalds?

I am all for McDonald's in moderation... we don't have Quarter Pounder's here so I don't visit McDonald's except to have breakfast. A double cheeseburger does not a Quarter Pounder make.

We go once a month or so with the kids for a treat. The cheeseburgers are just the right size for those little hands which I'm sure is on purpose. What with the happy meals, playplaces and so on, they sure know how to hook them young.

As long as my other meals on the day aren't shit, I'm not adversely effected by McD's. Ironically, if I'm having a crappy day, McDonalds is somehow just the right place to go for a comfort fix.

I am right there with fresnelly... every once in a while doesn't kill anyone. And those habitrails for kids are awesome. I wish we had them when we were kids... all we had were the playgrounds where you could climb inside mayor mccheese. Not all that bad, BUT, they were all outside. Nothing worse than being there in winter and not being allowed to go out an play.

Heart disease accounts for 29% of all deaths in the US. McDonalds serves foods high in refined sugars, high fructose corn syrup, saturated fats, cholesterol, and empty calories. These can lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, and obesity.

And.... one should be vigilant about one's diet. As Charl was saying, once in a while doesn't kill anyone. But steady consumption (more than once or twice a month perhaps) is insane, i.e. not rational.

A balanced, rational diet should go a long way to reducing heard disease. Fast food is purely a stop-gap for convenience sake and shouldn't be part of one's daily routine.

*edit, I'm a bit of a coffee snob, but I've noticed that their new brew is quite palatable, more to it than Timmy's but less so than Second Cup or Starbucks. I have no compunction in picking up a traveller from McD's while on the road.

Don't like McD's? Don't go to jail and sure as hell don't join the military. McD's is just food with some extra sodium and some extra fat. It's still a glorious intake of calories to expend on your daily ritual called "work". Do I feel a little lightheaded after eating it? Sure, sometimes. It's definitely no sausage/egg/cheese bagel I bring from home but it doesn't make me shit kittens.

I still get a jones for Burger King, but as many have stated above, it causes me gastro-pain. I finally found a substitute: 5 Guys Burger & Fries. It costs more, sure, but it has the same emotional basic burger resonance, plus Jersey-Boardwalk-style french fries made in peanut oil. And my body survives the impact.

If there can be such a thing, I consider myself a bit of a connaisseur when it comes to fast food. Whenever I go to the States, I try to track down some local comfort food. We don't quite have the same tradition here in Canada.

Dear god will, is that guys body real?

I really try to avoid mcD's at all cost.

There is burger place here in Calgary called "The Burger Inn", it wins top burger joint of the year all the time.
And damn is it ever good. You can get regular beef burgers, steak burgers, ostridge burgers, lamb burgers, buffalo burgers... and I think perhaps there are a few more than I am missing.
In the whole scheme of things they are really decently priced, about 5 or 6 bucks for a single premium burger, and about 4 for the regular kind. Keep in mind these are insane high gay Canadian prices (all our food here is retardedly expensive compared to the states... you have a dollar menu, we have a 1.50 menu). Burgers are all cooked fresh when you order it, so it takes about 5-10 min to get it depending on how busy they are. But damn are they good!! I want one now.

Yep, I avoid McDonalds and the super fast food chains at all costs. I'd say I eat there once every 6 months.

Some kids I know eat there everyday. And my grandparents LOVE taking my little cousins to eat there. Yuck, they're already getting them in bad habits!

Although, I still love going out to eat, just not fast food places.

I ate at Taco Bell once. Actually I bought a beef burrito from there, took one bite and threw it out.

Might have been because the pureed meat filling was oozing out like a tube of toothpaste. Unbelievably gross.

Cripes... that's a massive burger. I hope that's for two people.

I've eaten at the DD but never ventured into Coronary territory.

By the way, Leto, I think what Fres was saying we don't have is roadside joints. We do have plenty of diners. I put it down to the extensive highway systems of the US vs. the fairly simple highway system we have in Canada.

As for Diners... I am all for the Lakeview Lunch and breakfast at the Logan Grill.
