Growing up, eating fast food with your friends was by and large a social thing. We’d head to Taco Bell or Wendy’s and get some grub and head out for some other activity. Every meal was not fast food and it was by and large the exception and not the rule.

Things have definitely changed since then and the increase in fast food consumption is off the charts. People see eating as a waste of time and it’s leading to a massive health crisis in this nation. That’s not what this post is about. This post is  about what exactly we are cramming into our bodies in an effort to save a buck or save 15 minutes so we can rush off to the next important thing on our list.

In my younger years, fast food never made me sick. It wasn’t the greatest food, but it didn’t make me want to rip out my stomach and toss it in the trash. These days, just about everytime I venture out for fast food I wind up paying for it in a big way for the next 2 days or so. I’m currently suffering through one such bout right now.

Just what exactly goes into this food these days that is making me sick? Is my body just so used to not eating that filth that the mere presence of it is sending my body into some sort of trash induced shock? I don’t know, but what I do know is that you can count me out. I am no longer going to be eating fast food except in extreme emergencies where it just cannot be helped.  I am tired of feeling like my insides are running in circles as they try to climb their way out of my body. I just can’t do it anymore. So long fast food.
