When you can leave a patty under your bed for a year and have it look the same as the day it has been served something is seriously, seriously wrong. Exercise is important for strengthening your tissues and bones and getting your heart going. Counting calories is not necessarily at all, in fact most people think the wrong foods are healthy and avoid foods with fat when they are counting calories because they think they're bad from you. What you put in your body has a far bigger effect on your weight than anything else. In short: avoid things with added sugar, avoid processed foods, eat fresh, local and learn to love cooking, avoid foods labelled low-fat because that usually means higher in sugar and the only thing eating stuff like this does is reduce the protein hormone count in your body (complex groups of amino acids) which throws off the apatite and metabolism process in your body. Like the way drinking carbonated sodas gives one spare tyre syndrome. The body isn't design to consume it. If you eat the right things you'll never need to count another calorie again, because your body begins to tell what what you need and when you've had enough and generally regulates itself like a well oiled machine.


    Sounds like a very nice diet. I also have a healthy diet, but my comments were in response to your initial remark regarding diabetes. You can eat whatever you want so long as it is in moderation, you get adequate exercise and don't smoke. Staying physically fit and getting plenty of sleep are the best preventions from diabetes. Obese people are at a greater risk of getting diabetes because they are eating way too many calories and getting zero exercise. It is a quantity issue. They don't have an occasional burger and soda, they have like five a day.

    I understand that. But fast food is still junk.

    Is it? All restaurants that expedite food service only serve food items that are junk food?

    I enjoy Panera Bread. They have a drive-thru. They bake their own breads and make their own soups and sandwiches in-house. Their bread barely last a day at home due to a lack of preservatives. Sure, it's probably not as healthy as eating steamed kelp (but neither is any bread and red meat) but I don't see how this is junk food. They do have fountain drinks which contain high-fructose corn syrup and potato chips as an optional side with a sandwich which are not healthy but if having just one or two unhealthy items makes the entire restaurant junk then you'd be hard pressed to find any that satisfy all your requirements.

    Not everything that fast food restaurants offer is complete junk, just like not everything the grocery store sells is junk, although they both have some relatively healthy choices for those who want them and some terrible choices as well.

     

    There are varying levels of quality in everything. It is difficult to be a perfectionist and still enjoy life.

    They’ve FINALLY taken to putting their bagels inside BAGS in that big cardboard carrying thing they give you. Why did it take them so long to figure that out? You get that many bagels, it’s either because you want to have them ahead or they’re for a party. If you want them ahead, they’re rock hard in two days! You can’t eat those! But in bags, they keep and keep.

     

    Oh, and their bread. You’re right about loaves barely lasting, which is a shame because how am I to eat an entire loaf of tomato basil before it gets all moldy? Always had that problem in the past. But as I sit here, I have half a loaf in my breadbox in the kitchen that I’ve had for… oh, at least two weeks now, and it’s not showing any signs of anything. Looks fine. I’m actually more concerned about it looking fine than I ever was about the mold on past loaves! 

     

    Their cream cheese, on the other hand, is pretty bad for you. But hey, it’s cream cheese. That’s to be expected. All things in moderation.

     

    Speaking of Ireland (the place), when I lived there, I was really happy to see the legally mandated small print on the signs at McDonald’s that said (roughly), “Eat in moderation; a couple of times per month”. That’s one of the few things I like about the EU. That and “smoking causes lung cancer” on their tobacco products instead of “may have sort of kind of been associated with an increased risk of…” over here.

    I don't usually eat a lot in one sitting but once I take a bit of their French bread it's gone. That includes an entire low which is about 1100-1200 calories (I counted).

    Maybe because there's a lot less mold spores in your bread box than in the open air. ;)

    Apparently wheat causes cancer these days. That’s a shame; I won’t eat white bread.

    Wheat has been changed dramatically over the years.

    I know that the spores are still there just in much lesser amounts.

    Yet whenever I go to a fast food place there's always old people hanging out. :lol:

    At least BK is WAY better than McDo...and owned by Brazilians, who know a thing or two about really good beef.
