sort of ~ I wish the types of fast food out there now were banned and they'd offer healthy foods instead!

It'd be super nice to be able to go out and get paleo foods - grass fed meat that doesn't have nightshades added to it for seasoning, or a salad without cheese and tomatoes (there ARE other vegetables out there!!) with dressing that isn't made with soybean oil, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors/flavors/preservatives . . . some restaurants are *so close* it's just that the foods they serve come already seasoned from their suppliers . . . they can truthfully say they don't add anything to them, but that doesn't mean it came additive-free in the first place. Or you think you're getting something healthy, like a pecan-apple salad - you can order it without cheese, but then you get the pecan topping package, and the pecans are pre-coated with cayenne pepper and HCFS. so you're left with lettuce and apples. And paid $7+ for that.

oh man, I WISH we had that here!! We live in a very "traditional" area. Meat, bread, and potatoes. People need to realize there are other things to eat!

Almost paleo It did have a small amt of cheese and flour in it to keep it sticking together. The paleo recipe I was going to use was just zuchinni, onion and egg, I didn't see how that would form "patties" but now I know that it's during the frying of them that they'd stick together so I'm going to do the paleo one next time.

Fast food banned? No. But I do think they should start making healthier fast food places!

No, it's no different than candy or sugar. It's not necessary but can be enjoyed in moderation.

No, I dont think its up to society as a whole to moderate someone's diet.

We have a pretty healthy diet in my household, but once in a while (say, once a month) we order pizza, but because we eat healthy the rest of the time its okay.

Also, fast food dosent always mean junk food, in Australia we have a lot of healthy fast food options. Im a big lover of Sumo Salad and Healthy Habits stores.

now this, I highly disagree with . . . unless the sugar is NOT a highly processed sugar . . . and the candy has to be 100% natural, no crap in it. When you do a strict paleo diet for long enough, you just cannot eat processed sugars/candy without getting sick. BTDT, and I'm DONE with that.

Well I also think they shouldn't banned. There need some serious steps towards their preparing. You can't banned them because they are need of many people especially working class. It is also reality that today's fast foods are not healthier for health. I like home made foods or fresh foods.

I dont think they should be banned either. Yeah, definitely, we can say fast food is unhealthy, however, a treat for yourself once in a while isn't bad.

Many people like to eat fast food and don't prefer vegetables so i think fast food should not be banned. It will be people's choice to eat fast food or not.

Yes... well sort of. Certain places like Panera Bread & Chipotle are considered "fast food", while I don't necessarily consider them to be if more places were like these two and giving people more slightly healthier options Americans would be on a better road to better health then I would say "no".
