    Fast Food

    So over the past couple of weeks I've been asking myself what exactly is so bad about fast food (at least for someone who is trying to bulk). All that I've been able to come up with is that fast food is so unhealthy because the food is loaded sodium and lacks many micronutrients. Can anyone enlighten me moreso? Thanks

    Also, what exactly is the grease in fast food. How is the grease in fast food different from other liquid fats such as canola oil or vegetable oil? Is the main difference just different micronutrients or is it something more?



    A couple of weeks ago I saw this posted:

    The proteins in some fast food are absolutely valueless to your body.
    Is that true?

    You realize that "fast food" is not one specific food, right?

    I assumed the greases in different fast foods weren't that different from each other.

    most of the food is fried, altering the oil which has negative health effects (especially in the bread products)

    as for the proteins, depends what place... taco bell uses a lot of fillers to mimic meat

    Interesting perspective.

    McDonald's hamburger patties are 100% USDA Grade A beef and they're cooked with no added oils or other fats whatsoever. So do you want to extrapolate from one datapoint that almost all "fast food" is cooked without any added oils or fats?

    And did you really think that every forum of "fast food" contains about the same ingredients?

    I consider it "bad" typically because it is usually very calorie dense, and sometimes has a high fat/carbs to protein ratio. If I want to get full at Wendy's or culvers, we are talking about 2500 calories, minimum, whereas eating whole foods(like oatmeal, eggs, etc) I barely can get in 700 calories in the morning when I eat that for breakfast.
