    I agree.

    When the person lacks the self control to not guzzle down excessive amounts resulting in fatness then it's terribly wrong. If just eating it as a snack/ cheat day it's fine.

    I don't look down on people really unless they're hurting themselves, define eating alot of junk food. I eat "junk food" (canned food, microwaveable food, fast food, fizzy drinks, fattening foods such as crisps and minicheddars and cream cheese) on a very frequent basis, yet am perfectly healthy and weigh less than 9 stone. The only real health issue I have is stress-induced asthma and shortsightedness, but nothing diet related, the latter you could blame on my lifestyle I suppose, but not my eating habits. Someone who's obese and stuffing their face with cheeseburgers and complaining because people don't find them attractive and the such... Someone like that would be degraded in my views because they are causing themselves discomfort and unhappiness, and before people comment, it is not society or anyone else's fault we don't find obese people attractive (I don't mean chubby. I mean like, seriously going to get ill obese.), and it's not fair on anyone to try to blame any other cause. People like that need to at least try to balance their diet and exercise more often. Not these media diets though, they just feed off of guilt and insecurity and hurt people

    Of course not...... but you think the only cause of junk food is being overweight? there are many thin people with diabetes or hypertention, you know..
    I know, I do A level PE and Biology - I'm fairly confident with the causes of diabetes (Type 2 ) and hypertension. As well as the implications of having a high fat diet containing too many LDL's found in Fast Food.
    . I wasn't suggesting that the only cause of junk food is being overweight and I was in no way promoting it.

    Nope, it is their choice and if you derive your sense of self worth from other people's flaws, as opposed to your own success, it really says more about you.

    how does one devise a notion of success without having flaws and failures to compare it against? :beard:

    Define a lot. If it is what they eating every day then I would a bit yes. Whilst there is the argument that it is cheaper to live off junk food you can get more for the same money from supermarkets albeit it will be the own brand stuff. Would still be more nutrious than junk food like McDonalds every day.

    More than 2-3 times a week of going out to eat junk food is probably too much in my opinion. It will lead to a spiral of eating it more and more.

    Sure it's an uneasy sight and it's pretty much plastic food. But let the people do what the people want to do.

    The problem I find with most healthy food you have to buy it fresh, I like to shop weekly or fortnightly and usually buy frozen because I can use it whenever and is the cheapest. I'm a student and after a night out very hungry go straight to the local takeaway, I'm not going go' excuse me what is the healthiest food on your menu?' no I just get whatever

    I feel sorry for them, really. What kind of terrible deprived lives have they had where they mistake junk food for an enjoyable or sensible form of sustenance?

    I'm usually jealous, and wish I was the one eating the junk food. I imagine life must be far more enjoyable when you're able to eat a chocolate digestive and not be wracked with guilt after.
