    I am fairly skinny for my age and never seem to be put on fat, however seem to be able to stop eating, I usualy have at least one faily substational junk meal a day although I do eat lots of greens as well.

    I am worried because my family have a history of heart problems. Is it just as dangerous for slim people to eat fatty foods as it is to fatter people?

    Ask your doctor, but i dont think it will matter on your build, heart problems usually because of a build up of plaque on your arteries which is from too much cholesterol so i dont think it matters if you are over weight, i think its just more common that you will have too much cholesterol if you are overweight.

    quit junk food altogether ( or at least a LOT less often than once a day). You'll feel much better about it, it will cost you less, gives you a chance to decide on different types of food to enjoy and you will look forward to something other than deciding whether or not you are stuffed enough to not get fries.

    But if I can't enjoy live because I am living of rice I think I would rather just risk the heart attack.

    There are plently of amazing foods, meals and tastes that are healthy. It isn't rice and rabbit food vs. Junk.

    Why don't you buy a cook book and employ the time you would spend getting bored and heading for the junk food by trying out a healthy but substantial recipie??

    I class Greggs as junk, that is what I am referering to.

    I do eat a lot of proper meals when I am at home, but the point is when you're out you can't afford the premium health ranges.

    I am not convinced sandwiches are that healhy though, the only sandwhiches I eat are 6" subways with no added sources or salt etc.

    Make something at home, like a really thick veggie soup or a stew or something along those lines and store it in a large pan that you can draw from for the next few days. Heat the soup up, put it in a thermos and take it to work with you and there you go - just get a 30p half baguette or roll to have with it. You could make a sandwhich at home from the healthy stuff you use for your evening meals (veg.meat.cheese) and take things like nuts and raisins in a little tupperware. Packed lunches aren't just for primary school kids.
