I don't want to invade this thread but i hate junkfood and i don't eat outside food it is very unhealthy for you. If you want to stay in good shape and sustain a healthy life style ignore it.

2 Much FAT
2 Much SALT
2 Much SUGAR

If you eat junk food once in a blue moon it's ok but making it a habbit is not good for your body.

I eat Pizza Hut like once in 3 months with my friends :)

Yep i seriously don't eat any junk food whatsoever but i live, it's hard at start but you'll get used to it. Haven't drank coke since the midpoint of 2005, something like that i think, always drinking water.

1) I've been working out for the past 2 years so thats why i've stopped eating junkfood. Started eating food with quality.

2) My dad is a doctor and trust me junkfood and outside food for him is a big no no. He know's how bad it is for you and he always tells me that for some reason.

totally understand ya.......it is unhealthy can cause illnesse...in america obesity is increasing even in england.....

yeah water is best....but having strawberry flavoured water(volvic) is that okay?...i usually have that.....

am not frequently eating out and about.......jus once in a while.......trying diff foods from diff cultures and learning how to make diff recipes....

we usually have PFC..thats common in london....which involves chicken and chips, burgers, doner kebab....and so on....

amd me dads fav food is pizza...we usually have that........

or in resturants...we usually prefer to go to arabian places...love chicken shashlik, meshwi moshakol, chicken or lamb shawarma...soo delicious...basically grilled food wid rice or chips....love it....

we dnt have rice and curry outside...cos my mums home made food is the best....nothing can beat that........

as ppl will say that curries are unhealthy too...coz the amount of spice, oil used.......

well...wot can i say...carry on with ur healthy routine inshalah.......

Strawberry flavoured water is ok because it contains no sugars and i'm positive it is very low in calories. I know for some people regular water does not taste good so they try flavoured. Try not to avoid natural water though. There's a difference between flavour and flavoured not sure if you know this or not but if a product says strawberry flavour it contains no strawberry whatsoever and if the product says strawberry flavoured it most probbaly contains a little bit of it.

It's normal to eat outside food but try limiting it, i used to love chicken shawrmas and shishtawook but i've stopped eating it, once in a blue moon. You are right a mother's home made food is the best, nothing can top that.

Try to avoid sugary foods and limit fast food (deep fried) thats how you get type 2 diabetes. Spicy food is a no no :)

Oh yeah and a good tip for your mom would be if you fry with oil which is pretty obvious use unsaturated oil and try to drain the oil off the food before you eat it, use a small amount of oil. This is what my dad says and my mom follows it strictly :)

A lot of people always stress of becoming fat or being fat. Some people have a slow metabolism and some people have an fast one. Metabolism slows down with age meaning you'll slowly gain weight with as you age.

My advice is to eat small amount of meals a day instead of 3 meals make it ummmm 5 or 6. Reason being is for example if you eat outside food your probbaly going to eat a lot of food and if you intake to many calories at once that could turn into fat.

^ :lol: now that's the first time I've heard someone put it that way :lol:

My father has turned into a health freak lately :rollseyes so we haven't had junk food for aaaaaaages. I haven't drank a can of soda for almost a year now and I've lost taste for it already :)

My fav junk food? Does chewing gum count? lol.....I love chewing gum but my father doesn't let me buy it anymore because he says it's full of chemicals :cry: but once in a while I sneak some anyway

Mmmmm......Most of the time I just snack on fruits, and I particularly love sour stuff like tamarind but thats' not junk food is it :D

Well I guess I dont belong to this thread then :)

it's called junk food because it has little or no nutritional value and often a lot of empty calories. it would probably be best thrown away, rather than eaten.

my favourites are coffee ice cream, pretzels and pizza. i rarely eat out except for pizza and there is an individually owned pizza place where i live.
mmmm.....

So pizza and chocolate are not junk food, right:?
Pizza has cheese which is well known to have calories :-[
Chocolate is good for the brain - in fact if you have to study a lot ,chocolate increase your brain activity:) and for face skin like a bro said
I think cakes can be add to the list too
