    Food & Drink Effects of Fast Food?

      Are there any negative effects of fast food on your body? Personally, fast food does nothing to my narrow frame. I can eat anything I want with no regret, because my metabolism simply burns anything I eat away and then I'm hungry again in an hour. Does anyone else share this same story? :)

      I also do not have problems eating anything I want in fast food since I do not gin weight easily. And I do not eat on fast foods often since I prefer home cooked meals. I think even it does not make us gain weight, eating high cholesterol foods could cause heart attacks/problems and some illnesses in a long run. So better to eat in moderation and if there is a healthy option in a certain fast food, like juice instead of soda, smaller size fries than the extra large one will help us avoid bad effects of fast foods.

      I unfortunately am the other way round, if I eat alot of fast food I would gain weight pretty quickly so I tend to stay away from fast food and eat home cooked healthy meals instead and treat myself to fast food once in a while. My brother is completely different as he can eat just abouth anything and still not put on any weight.

      Fast Foods affect different people in different ways.
      I can eat them once a week no problem but I wouldn't want to tempt fate by eating more regularly.
      I certainly don't consider them a healthy diet.

      I only eat a subway once a month as I would rather home cooked food as it is better for you

      Hi there Melinda :) welcome to Chat Addicts!

      Wow! 30 days eating fast food, I can only imagine what that does to anyones heart, I myself don't think I could eat fast food so frequently for such a long period of time to be honest, not just because of the affects to health but because it would end up getting boring.

      if I eat lots of fast food I start noticing that my stomach will bulge out or my thighs will be thicker. I'm a big girl, but I can't eat fast food three times a day and expect to stay thin. Another effect of fast food is that I'll feel tired or sluggish afterwards. I wish I ate more healthy food but I just don't know of any that actually tastes good.
