They've been doing this in Japan for years.

Then again, you can get ANYTHING delivered in Japan.

What's with all the Chinese characters over the scooters?  Considering most of the food goes cold and bland between check out line and table in a restaurant, the "food" delivered should be a real taste treat after 15 minutes on the back of the scooter.

The burgers wouldn't be too bad, but I wouldn't want delivered Chicken Nuggets or fries.

Same with China. China's roads are packed with scooters, motorcycles and bicycles but you can easily identify the McDonald's delivery scooter. Its driver will be the only person on the road wearing a helmet.

Hell, they do this innew york already. What is the problem?

I like hamburgers. McDonald's hamburgers aren't horrible when you consider what you're paying for.

Best hamburger I've ever had though was at Mighty Fine in Austin. (Everyone tells me the best burger in Austin is either at Casino El Camino or The Jackalope, but I've never had the opportunity to visit either one).

The McDonald's a block away from me delivers. Of course there's about twenty other places on the way there that you should get  your food from instead

Back when I worked in a mall (and still ate McDonald's), the one in my mall delivered, and it was great. I would order lunch right as the breakfast-lunch transition took place, so my fries would taste a bit like hash browns.

McDonald's definitely isn't health food, but they've done a good job with putting calorie counts on the menu and providing some lower-calorie alternatives.

I just went on a cross-country road trip, and McDonalds was the only place where you could reasonably get a 500-700 calorie meal. Supplement with vegetables and fruit that's comparatively easy to store, and you can have hot, cheap meals that don't break the belt or the budget.
 
2014-08-08 02:02:40 PM  
And there some are fast food places where, when you look at the nutritional info, you realize you couldn't get out of there for less than 1000 calories if you tried. McDonalds isn't one of those places.

They're Korean characters. I'm going to guess that McDonald's run a delivery service in the Republic of Korea.

The delivery boxes they use in Taiwan are really expensive, about as much as the scooter itself, and keep the food hot until you get it.

No, no, it's gluten that makes you fat. Or leaky guy syndrome.  Or insulin. Or carbs.

But not calories.  Because fark you, I'm going to stuff my face with quinoa, and I'll be thin!

Everything in moderation, yes? But, don't kid yourself into thinking what McDonalds serves is actually consumable food.

It isn't.

I know plenty of people who insist they have a glandular problem or whatever. I never understood how glands can violate the laws of physics.

(I'm not saying there aren't people who have conditions that make them hungrier than other people, or burn calories slower than other people, but there is no such thing as a glandular condition that on its own makes you fat - but some people seem to think there is.)

I heard there are these places that deliver something called "Pizza's"

They're basically just huge discs of bread covered with meat, cheese and tomato sauce.

I'd like to point out that I'm "thin" by today's standards, but I'm slightly overweight by medical standards. I also ate a big piece of leftover coconut cream pie for breakfast this morning.

It was delicious.

I've lost well over 100 pounds eating at McDonalds twice a day. I have no nutritional defiencies, except for caloric (which is the point of dieting).
Why McDonalds? Cheap, convenient, tastes okay.

I don't see them delivering me a sausage biscuit and hash browns though. I was seriously wishing they did this last Sunday though. Hungover, with a shiat non drive through friendly car.

Probably satire, but you could pull it off, especially at just 2 meals a day.  Of course you'd be eating differently than 99+% of the people there.

Mostly grilled chicken, only water, no fries/hash browns, no doubles, no cheese, no bacon, only vinagrette

I lost a good amount of weight by cutting out McDonalds and all other fast food joints. Different strokes I guess.
 
2014-08-08 02:42:49 PM  
Mickey D's delivered in my around 1995.  About the same time they offered fried chicken.

As someone recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism, I can say it really is hard to lose weight if it's not treated. Plus the weight tends to hang around your gut in a woman, due to hormones. However, the average stubborn weight amount is about 8 pounds. Not 20-50.

Same thing in Colombia.

Of course, I can call a cabbie, and get a six pack of beer, a fried chicken, an 8 ball, a hooker(dead or alive) all within a half hour.

I can also call a grocery store and have a guy walk around with a cordless phone and grab my shopping, then get me a bottle of booze, and have it all delivered as well.

Mcdonalds does it in Colombia, they even have an app for it.  And if you order online, you get free shiat, like this offer of 5 mcnuggets.

Though happy meal sounds dirty in spanish.  Cajita Feliz.  Happy box.

I take it you have not had Argentine beef, as it is some of the most delicious in the world.

They're too dependent on drive thru right now in the USA for it to be cost effective.  Fazolis near me tried some bottles of beer some time ago and it didn't last long.

The thyroid controls the appetite. When my sister started taking her thyroid meds, she posted to Facebook, "That's the first time I ever felt full!" (And then she still had to break the physical addiction to fats and sugars, which is an actual thing.)

Diabetes can also make you feel starving, according to my Dad. So, your doctor puts you on a hell of a diet just as you're craving food like you never craved it before.

These aren't violations of the laws of physics, but the weight gain is a symptom rather than a disease in and of itself, and the underlying problem needs to be dealt with in tandem. If someone loses fifty pounds on chemo, you wouldn't talk about how awesome their willpower is. Adipose tissue and willpower are not irrevocably conjoined.

Trouble is, those thyroid problems aren't nearly as common as overweight people. I think a lot of the problem is a joke gone wrong: the old "All I have to do is glance at a donut and I gain five pounds." For some people, that's a lighthearted expression of how difficult it can be to maintain a diet. But some people heard that and thought, "Hey, yeah, that's a good excuse."

There was a doublewide I knew when I was growing up who kept on insisting that no matter how little she ate, she kept gaining weight. She was clearly packing away enough food to sustain a four hundred pound body, no matter what her assertions, so her claims that all she had to eat all day was a bowl of bran cereal were clearly untrue.


I'm saying you have a point, but I'm also saying that there can be other factors.

A Big Mac combo can be over 1000 calories.  Considering that a normal male's caloric intake is around 2000 cals a day, you can how easy it is to overeat.
