Captain Slog says: Hi Joydy,
If you read my first message, I was trying to remember who you were to quote you and what you said about "Fast Food." Yes, you're right! REALLY FAST FOOD is food you can get for yourself IMMEDIATELY! Such as a Banana, Apple, etc.It does, however slow down a bit when you have top prepare a meal for yourself. Such as a quick Omelete.
You sound like someone who also really appreciates Good Honest Tucker. Home Made Meals, Fresh Fruit, etc. But even McDonald's can be good, too. As I mentioned, my Favourite is The McFeast. and my next favourite, very similar, is the Grand McAngus with all the Lettuce on it and Tomato. Its a bit like a Grand McFeast.
Thank You for your Wishes, for all of us readers. You Eat Well, and Live Well, too. Good on ya! Reply

musicmum says: Fast food is the fastest way to health problems which will occur mostly after the age of 45 when most peoples bodies start to wear down. Occasional fast food won't harm you as your body will excrete all the bad stuff if your immune system is working well enough. Most fast foods are what I call 'dead' everything is frozen,unfresh and all nutrients are cooked out of them. If you need a quick snack go to a juice bar,a vegie or fruit juice can sustain you for hours. Even so called healthy fast food can be dubious. I personally can't eat much food out of the home,but if I have to I will go for a Indian Curry at least the chilli will kill all the germs! Reply

Pleased to "meet" you.
I am very ssorry to say, but I think that "Dietician's" stunt with the burgers was just that. A Stunt! And a load of old burgers, as well as a waste of good food.
I saw something like that on YOU TUBE that someone did to see if it was true, and ALL the burgers went rotten.
Why does everyone seem to pick on McDonald's? Because its EASY!! They are always used as the scape goat whenever anyone has a gripe about Take Away (Te Kawe if you're Maori) food. No one picks on Hngry's or Burger King.
I think they call yarms like that Urban Myths. Sorry, but I'm not going to waste valuable food to see if its true. Reply

Captain Slog says: Hello Possum,
Thank you for your response. It was very interesting.
To clarify things, McDonald's is my favourite because it is all I know. Even when I was in Brisbane, I preferred McDonald's. I went to hungry Jack's a few times, which was also nice, but not much variety. What really put me off them was, they use MICROWAVES. Or, they did when I was there. It seems whenever burgers go past their Time Limit, they go into a Chiller for "nuking" to save making fresh ones. Its IS a great pity to waste food, but it is even just as bad a waste when it is TOTALLY destroyed at the molecular level by Microwaving
I also enjoyed Pizza Hut, but they were just a Special Treat for me, because they were expensive. I stick with Mac's.
You say here that you are Diabetic (dietetic? Your spelling). I am so sorry to hear that. There may be alot of sugar in McDonald's foods, so they say, but I'm not sure where it all is apart from the Slushies and Smoothies. I tried one of their new Smoothies when I was in Taupo at Xmas time, and I agree with you there. They ARE very sweet! The key word there is TRIED. I try something, and IF I don't like it, I don't have it again.
As for the Burgers, could the sugar perhaps be in any of the dressings they use? Which burgers are they? I only have a few real favourites, and they don't have any sugar in them as far as I know. To be Honest with you, that is the best I can say. IF I detect anything sweet and it shouldn't be, I'll make a note of it and get back to you with an Honest result. Feedback like yours helps me to keep an eye on things, and if my favourite McDonald's has some serious faults showing, I'll have a word with them. They have a good reputation and they WILL listen to their customers.
Hungry Jack's? We had a cheeky saying at our McDonald's REGENT in Brissie. "Nobody Eats At Hungry's!" Of course, it was just friendly rivalry. Even some of Hungry's Crew came to our place.
I agree about the grease. Here in Turangi, where I live now, we have BURGER KING (Same thing) and their Burgers ARE very greasy. They, too, are also very expensive. And they are very stingy with their Fries for the price. And their Sundaes are very small. Half the size of a McDonald's Medium fries in width, and that's their "Large."
By the way, IF you're thinking of actually drinking Oil out of the can, PLEASE be sure its Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Its better for you. Of course, you were only joking.
Take good care, Possum. Reply

Captain Slog says: No Al! I don't have any Franchise with anything. Or Shares for that matter. I just enjoy good food, and if I discover that a certain food is not up to sctratch, or their's something iffy about it, I won't have it again.
I refeuse to listen to anyone who has a bad thing to say about it, unless they have something CONRETE to back it up. This is no dig at you, by the way.
We ALL have our own opinions, and expressing them is the whole point of being here in CAFE CHAT, but, we MUST be careful NOT to take any notice of any malicious gossip that is being spread about by activitst and vegans and other really wierd people, or just straight out trouble makers.
Getting back to McDonald's just for a little,
Did you know that YOU (EVERYONE) CAN tell McDonald's if there is anything wrong with their food? I don't just mean that you don't like Pickles in your Burgers (Simply TELL them when you order!), or your Large Fries is only half filled. I mean IF there is anything at all about their Food, you don't like, you can tell them, and they WILL Listen!! They have a reputation to maintain, and if your local management doesn't listen, you CAN go straight to the top and tell them. They ARE Approachable.
Not every restaurant, no matter if they're Mac's, BK's Hungry's, KFC or whatever, has Pride in their franchise. There is ALWAYS ONE that will let the side down.
My sister got a job at KFC in Taupo, and she told me the place was an absolute PIG HOLE!! The place was run by a lazy crew who never cleaned up much. The floors were greasy, and she slipped on them. She never noticed before as she was only there a few days. They have since cleaned up their act (I hope!), because I think they are under new Management and new Crew.I don't go there anyway. As I said, I'm a McDonald's Fan. I'd be a WENDY'S (Old Fashioned Burgers) Fan, too, but there's no WENDY'S in Taupo. . . YET! The closest is in ROTORUA. I've been told their Food is OUT OF THIS WORLD!!! I can't wait to try it! Reply

Captain Slog says: Hi Folks,
I'm new to this site. I've just signed up.
This discussion is very interesting, and I hope you don't mind if I join in.
Firstly, there is no such thing as "Fast Food", it only APPEARS to be "Fast." Whether you go to McDonald's (My Favourite), wendy's, Hungry Jack's/Burger King, Georgie Pie, Pizza Hut, Domino's, whatever, ALL of these Foods take time to make and prepare. The only reason it is called "Fast" is because there is so much of it made so that there is no waiting when Customers call in for a Meal. Sometimes, however, we are asked to excuse the crew for the wait for our order, because they have to make some more. I don't mind waiting. At least its HOT.
When I lived in Brisbane, I was in the City for a few years before moving out to a flat in Red Hill. While in the City, I stayed at the Palace Guesthouse, as it was known then, and it was a B&B. I had to get my own meals. I used to frequent the small Cafe in Edward Street (With all the fruit outside, for those who know the place), and get Toasted Sandwiches for Dinner, but over the weeks, it proved to be too expensive to eat there regularly.
On july 28,1980, McDONALD'S Regent opened in Queen Street, and McDonald's became my regualr haunt. I ate there every day for three years, and I enjoyed every meal. It was never the same thing. I always varied my meals to make sure I had plenty of salad with it. This became very obvious whwen my Favaourite, THE McFEAST joined the Menu. Every McFeast I had overflowed with salad. I had them with every meal, and became known there as The McFeasty Beasty.
ALL of the meals I ever had were Fresh and Hot, except, of course, Sundaes (Duhhh! Obviously! Ha!).
I agree, it is always good to do your own Cooking, but Burgers, my Favourites, are always very hard to make. I can't get the Patties right. They keep falling apart. Even when I buy the patties, they all go oval when they cook in the pan, and they shrink. I end up having to use TWO patties per burger, because they've shrunk so much. I did manage to find some rather nice ones that kept their shape and size, but they were too expensive.
I don't JUST cook Burgers, as much as I love them. THere's the good old "Spag Bol" FROM SCRATCH, Hot Dogs (Easy), Cottaage Pies, Curry, Soups, Scouse, Fried Rice, Stir Fries, etc. I am NOT a Professionald Cook, and I don't pretend to be, but I DO enjoy having a go at making a nice meal for myself. And Friends if they're interested.
I always make sure I've got plenty of Veges and especially Spuds, ONIONS and Garlic. They are the very Basics. Even a very simple meal can be done with just Onions and Spuds. That is, as long as you also have a good sized Block of Cheese (1 kg) in the fridge. You can have Cheese and Onion Toasties, and have a Spud (Agria)or ttwo in the Toaster Oven, too. You DON'T have to be a flash cook to know how to cook. I'm not!
Sorry this is rather long. I'll go now and let someone else have a go.
Before I go, though, I DON'T take any notice of all these "dieticians" and other wowsers who try to tell us our foods are "bad" for us. JUst eat what ever you like, but make sure there is very little fat, Plenty of Veges, and plenty of variety. Don't over cook your veges. Season well. And TASTE it to make sure it IS just right.
GOod Cooking, Everyone! Reply

Captain Slog says: Hi Possum,
Its me again. To clarify, I don't believe that Burger Stunt. I've hear these stories before and to actually see the experiment on YOU TUBE, I was put off. Not McDonald's, the sight of all that good food going rotten just to prove the whole thing was a stunt.
About me eating whatever I like? Yes, that's true, to some extent, BUT, I eat whatever I like that is Healthy. Sure, I may have the odd treat at McDonald's when I go to Taupo (Half an hour north of here), and I enjoy it. But I ALWAYS get the Burgers with Salad on them. The McFeast (Now made on request), The Grand Angus, Big Mac (Which I haven't had for ages), but I always have a decent serve of Veges when I cook here at home. I am not a diabetic, but I do try to keep from having too much sugar. Its not good for your teeth for a starter, and you get fat.
I am not a dietician, and don't understand the language of calories, etc. I just know to eat right. They can say what they like on those labels, but, if there's more information than I can handle, I won't get the product. You should see the American food labels! They're FULL of chemicals! YUK!

matticooper says: It's interesting to look at all the values of the major fast food chains we have in Australia/New Zealand. Of all the choices you have from KFC, Maccas, Hungry Jacks/Burger King, Dominoes/Pizza Hut, Oportos/Ogalos, and Red Rooster, there are really only 2 that stack up against the rest - Subway, Red Rooster and McDonalds (footnote: a lot of Subway's 6grams of fat or less is calculated without cheese and without the sauces just as an FYI).

As much as it pains me to say it, McDonalds has got their act together. I've watched Super Size Me (which is frightening) and I've seen the video of the experiment that Captain Slog and Possum are referring to - and I think this happened before the "salad days" of McDonalds started happening. I noticed the taste difference when this all swept through. McDonalds changed their buns, and changed the taste (and after taste) of all of their food.

The worst is Hungry Jacks/Burger King apparently. I enjoy their food from time to time and there is less wait to get the food. Now whether that's because of poor customer service or the food - I don't know. I have been told that the Ultimate Double Whopper is about the fattiest/most laden with calories burger you can get. And I always through the Triple Cheeseburger was the artery blocking champion!

I'm not advertising the site, but much of the information I found was on quite a few Australian web sites (choice.com.au for instance). The information is out there, Google is your friend.

As for good fast food? Remember it takes about an hour of walking to burn off 1,000 - 1,250 kilojoules. At 5,000Kj for the Double Whopper - that's an awful lot of walking! Reply

Captain Slog says: Hi Matticooper,
Good to read your comments. All were very interesting, something I've said about most comments, so far.

I haven't seen "Supersize Me!" at all, but the thought of it sickens me, and that's only from what I've seen of the trailers. Its as if this guy's deliberately chosen McDonald's to ABUSE their food by buying and eating as much of it as he could for a month. NO-ONE in their right mind would actually DO that. Would they? But, Americans aren't in their right minds. They do things to seek attention, get noticed, pump up their egos, etc. My guess is he was only buying Quarter Pounders, Cheese Burgers, Shakes and Sundaes, and LOTS of them. What a Wally!

As you may have read in my comments, I am a BIG Fan of McDonald's, and at our McDonald's REGENT in Brisbane, I became known as The McFeasty Beasty, because of my love for the McFeast. I used to get big orders for my evening Meals. Usually, you guessed it, a McFeast and/or a Big Mac, Quarter Pounder, Large (Now Medium) Fries, Chocky Sundae and a Cuppa Coffee. Because I was there for the whole evening ( I HATED going back to The Palace every evening! Nothing to do), I used to stay there and read my paper, write letters (NO eMails in 1980-85), my matesknew where to find me and we used to meet there at MY table. Every now and then I'd get up and get another coffe or an Orange Juice.

Away from McDonald's I used to have all the usual varieties of meals you get in the Malls like The Winter Garden (Next door), Coles, Myers, David Jones and other centres during my days off work. I used to work at Golden Circle. I'd get my fair share of Beet Root, Bananas, Strawberries, and other delicious Fruits and Veges. But we could ONLY Eat them IF we were working with them.

You said here Hungry's has the ultimate fat laden burgers. THe Ultra Double Whopper and the Triple Cheese Burger. Geez, even I don't like too much cheese on my Burgers. That would be asking for trouble. I tried a Triple Beef and cheese at Burger King here a few years ago, and yes, it was rather sickly. I ONLY tried it, to see what the fuss was about.

One good thing about being in the City, or in a town like Taupo or Rotorua, etc. when you're out in the street you WALK from one place to another, and fi you've got all day to do what you like in town, you can walk for MIILES and not know it, and its all good exercise. I love it!

You don't have to be "guilty" of "advertising" sites like Giggle(THAT'S what I call it). I prefer YAHOO! Giggle is just a bit too smart for their pants from my experience. Besides, aren't they having a bit of trouble at the moment? I use YAHOO! for all of my Searches and I am very pleased with their results.

Any good advice from people who have something to offer I would welcome very much. Anyone spouting gossip or "airs of superiority" (SNOBS) and putting people down ( Like the snobs who poo-pooed "The Poor Man's Pizza" that was offered by a member yesterday) deserves to be given a hard time. These so called "Classy" types have NO "class" at all, they're JUST SNOBS!! DON'T take any crap from them! Poor Man's Pizza? Nothing wrong with it! Good Honest Tucker! Simple, Tasty, and anyone can make them. Reply

There is nothing healthy about McDonald's food. The bread is full of sugar and salt, the meat is highly processed and defrosted and reheated, and the salad is more than likely covered in all sorts of chemicals to keep it looking "nice". The cheaper the food, the lower the benefits! Healthy, benificial food, or a high quality, is more often than not a higher price. Reply

I know that the beef hamburgers is very fatty to eat. There is a lot of people that think it is healthy to eat, although there is meals like the fish burger that is more healthy and the chicken rap is more healthy to eat at Mc Donalds and the salad meal. I would also say that Subway take away foods is defnitetely more healthier to eat, overall. Reply

Bazz says: Hearing about fast food outlets as being inherently bad for us reminds me of an old quote that seems to apply:

"Two men look through prison bars; one sees mud, the other, stars".

There are actually a great variety of really healthy "fast food" outlets around. More so now than ever before. It just takes time to search online before going out. The great thing is, once you've found one that you really like & has real food that does you a lot of good in many different ways, you tend to go back there time & time again.

I really dislike the big fast food chains. It's not just what they put in the stuff they give us, but a whole range of factors like how it's prepared, cleanliness, etc that all boil down to one common denominator: they care only about profits & refuse to pour their love into the food that is supposed to nourish us - at every level of the organization. I can recall a speech the owner of McDonalds made many decades ago saying how he owed his success not to burgers, but to Real Estate!
