    This idea of a thread just came to me as I was eating my second Quarterpounder (gotta love those 2 for 1 coupons!)
    I have had since Thursday off and am going to *attempt* to list all the food I have had. I was going to make a big Sheperd's Pie on friday and eat that over the weekend but unfortenetly Panago Pizza beckoned.
    Ok here goes:
    Pizza 73 medium Italian sausage onion & tomatoe pizza woth a dozen wings and onion rings with ranch dip. Hey at least they throw in some veggies!
    7-11. Those cheesy nachos that you get to pour as much cheese on as u want. Also one of those fake rib subs that I spiced up at home.
    Just remembered this. On the way home from the bar thursday night I stopped and ate 2 slices of pizza after drinking lots of draft beer.
    2 big macs. Those damn coupons again.
    Panago pizza on Friday night (2 mediums, Italian sausage and onion and a pepperoni). But this was split with a friend, even though the next day I finished the rest off.
    Last night coming home from the bar I went to a donair place and had the most unreal donair. Its only a 5 minute walk to the apartment but there was nothing left of it when I arrived.
    2 Quarterpounders with fries and a coke that I spilt all over the passenger seat after taking a right turn a little hard. (It was eating these that gave me the idea to share my gluttony with the forum)
    Earlier today I decided to actually cook something. Since I'm leaving for 2 weeks I used up the last of my bacon and eggs in the fridge. Not a true fast food but greasy nonetheless.
    I think thats just about it. Now I can sit back and watch my arteries harden. [​IMG]

    I've had a few of quarter-pounder meals in the last few days. I was sick a week before and lost some weight. I wanted to gain back the pounds (I'm pretty slender as it is), so thought the 1000 calorie quarter-pounder meal was the best way to gain it back quick!
    So, how much weight did you gain, mike? I managed to get back 1 pound in 4 days. [​IMG]

    I'm rather proud of myself, all I've had to eat today is half a bag of lowfat pretzels which I washed down with some iced tea. I'd feel much more comfortable showing my bare midriff in public if I were to lose about 15 lbs:b

    Good for you Mike, the world needs more crap in their bodies.

    hmmmm..... during watching football today I polished off a whole bag of Tostitos bite size rounds and Tostitos hot salsa. does that count?

    can't say I've had much else.. I made steak tonight on my indoor grill.... it's still smokey in here.... with rice and mixed veggies...... and last night a big heaping bowl of spaghetti with Classico Florentine Spinach and Cheese Tomato sauce and lots of parmasean cheese, big sammich deluxe a la Paul, and bowls of red berry special k both mornings!!

    no pizza or burgers tho...

    oh, and btw did I mention that during the past two days I've almost finished off a 12 pack of coke?? first time I've had coke in a while....

    I think I'm addicted again....

    There was a 5-6 month span about two years ago when all I had for lunch was McDonald's. I was working downtown... and only got 30 mins for lunch. It was too far to walk to a real restaurant, and McDs was right next door.
    So for those months I had:
    A Big Extra
    With Cheese
    and Bacon
    (no pickles no onions)
    Large (or Super) Fries
    small Sprite.
    But even though I ate that every single weekday for about 6 months, I didn't gain any weight. I guess it must be my metabobolism.

    Gah. My only fast food this weekend was a Double Quarter Pounder with cheese (no onions or pickles), a large fry and a large orange soda. Sunday is my free day, so I attempt to eat as much bad food as I can handle. I think I'm gaining a rather indifferent attitude towards fast food now that I've been on the Body For Life program for three weeks. I just did not feel right after eating the burger and fries (and I used to love that stuff to death).
    Also wanted to have a pizza or burger for dinner last night but forgot to grab some on the way home from grocery shopping. Oh, well. That'll be next weekend. [​IMG]

    I've been reading Fast Food Nation this week and I think that's what has affected my fast food consumption. Some of the crap in that book makes me want to buy a farm and grow all my own food.

    Hey Michael was it the Donair place by the Shaw confrence centre? That place is so good.

    I am currently working in West Edmonton Mall for about 5 months. I have set a goal to eat at every food place in the mall all fast food/restaurants/coffee shops/pubs.

    Mike, woah, sounds like you'll have enough to buy some good HT gear when you come back eh? I worked at Weyerhaeuser Pulp mill when I was living in Kamloops, worked there for summers while I was in University. GREAT job, shutdowns were NUTS though, but you'll be making the big bucks.
    and all this right after you just got online again?? haha..... [​IMG] life is too cruel
