Bad Eating Habits

with Europe rapidly catching up on America's obesity, bad diet, and most notably, rise in processed/fast food consumption. yet another Brit falls fowl (unintended pun) of bad eating habits:
http://www.metro.co.uk/news/888477-girl ... en-nuggets
this one is clearly a parent 'loving the child too much' and giving in to her, once fad, fast food pleading. obvious because it states she is 17 and been eating only chicken nuggets for the past 15 years, yes 15 out of 17!
when i was growing up one of my school chums was such a bland eater too and he generally only ate stuff like chicken mcnuggets, processed burgers, processed this and that... he too was plagued by health problems ranging from skin conditions through to more serious liver problems. like the girl in the picture, he too, actually looked quite healthy at first glance. fortunately his parent took note of his ailments at an earlier stage than this and FORCED him to eat healthier. even though he'd sneak burgers and stuff when he was out with us. it is clear they saved him from doing irreparable damage to himself.
maybe i am finger pointing at the parent a little. i mean, it is difficult to say 'no' to your child, right? not only that, but, advertising and marketing have a lot to blame. the newer of the fast food chain adverts promote healthy living! of course, their food is healthy too now, right?
so, where do people stand when it comes to fast food?

i voted: i have it very rarely. 'though, usually after/while eating i think 'why did i bother? its tastless and i'd have been much better off with something else or nothing at all'

Never touch it.

Not only for the health reasons, but for the fact that I can make myself something cheaper, healthier, and above all tastier.

Everything in moderation :D

Most fast food I get in binge style, like a trip to burger king on the way home from a week long vegetarian festival. I tend to have a strange diet though, some weeks I'll have 5 different curries over 7 days, other weeks I'll have simple things like bread, a few slices of cheese and some fruit. I do love a pizza every now and again though, with the odd burger or real kebab thrown in, sometimes together lol.

I was a real junk food addict. Thing is, i worked at McDonalds. So for lunch, i had cheeseburgers, instead of bread.
I at like 4 bags of chips during a week. I have really neglected my body. But, then i got a kid. Which had forced me to eat better. So i do that now. Vegetables and potatoes. Need to work on eating fruit. But i am doing a lot better now.
The thing that was a part of my junk food habit is the fact that i just do not like to cook, and if i do, i think it tastes horrible. So i never eat properly. But that also is getting better.


The fact that really still works on me is that i have eating difficulties since i was really young, like 5-6 years old. I did not have anorexia or boulimia. Do not get me wrong. They tapped of blood once a month so i had to eat. Unfortunately that wasn't a long term solution. Lasted for a day or two. And, i do not like most foods. Most meat i do not like. Most vegetables i do not like.

I enjoy my pizza once in a while. And when the little boy is away i do not mind eating unhealthy. As long as i moderate it i think it is ok.
