Wow, that's gross XSTARRYSKIESX! Thanks! Lol.

I'm sure if knew what happens behind the scenes at all of our favorite restaurants, factories, and meat processing plants, we'd eat much differently. :\ But fast food is particularly bad, and much easier to cut out, so that's where I'm starting.

I work at a mcdonalds one-two times a week. (i cut back my time there and got another job because being around all that food is the only time I have ED-type tendencies) but anyways, we get to see the ingredients on the boxes much more readily than other people, u cant really see whats actually in stuff online. All the sauces are based with high fructose corn syrup, and up until this year the broccoli seasonal soup contained partially hydrogenated oils. The meat boxes say its real meat, but for like the chicken and stuff, the breading usually contains butanol (think butane). Yeah. lighter fluid. Its actually more scary than it leads on. The inside of the shake and ice cream machine is not cleaned. its constantly circulating, but how the bacteria doesnt grow in there...idk...and the drink nozzles used to be cleaned of the black mold they accumulated when my boyfriend was manager at our store. Now, without him there, noone does it. AKA, ur drinking mold and black particles. Its truly disgusting.

Here in Korea, there is a chain called Lotteria that as far as I can tell is just exactly like burger king. I've only gone in once. Mcdonalds are around but harder to find. it's sad to see a food culture being transformed by fast food chains.

but one thing i do miss, for sure, is sandwich shops for fast food. subway, cousin's, milio's, any place you can get an awesome, veggie filled sandwich. just as well though! slow food is the way to go anyway!

I'm curious though. Ok, it is highly processed, contains tons of trans fat, but it is still food for god's sake! It is not plastic. So why the hell isn't it getting degenerated??

OMG! Im officially traumatized! That is so suspicious, thanks for posting that now I have something to think about if I feel the urge to get fast food. No wonder it makes you feel like crap after you eat it. LOL!

I have fast food maybe once or twice a year, I honestly find it just kind of boring... but for those of you who struggle with the fast food addiction these two experiments may just help cut the ties for good!

This is not real food...
