What is “fast food”?

How would you define “fast food”?

For this charity [1] [2] that Brian will be starving for soon, he may only eat sponsored meals.  Sponsorship costs $25 and is limited to one meal and one advocate (sponsor Brian, or someone else, but not more than one person).  Sponsorship also comes with a promise to avoid “fast food” for the next 25 days.

So what exactly is “fast food”?

Must a sponsor avoid all forms of food that can be purchased quickly or eaten quickly or prepared quickly?  What if it’s really greasy, and really sugary, and deep-fat-fried, and oozing with carcinogens and preservatives — but it takes a really long time to prepare?  That is, can “fast food” come slow?


We think it means quick and unhealthy food in general:  Too much sugar, too much of that bad kind of cholesterol, too much fat or grease or scientific-sounding chemicals.  A salad at McDonald’s?  Up to you.  A health-conscious sandwich at Subway?  Maybe.

What do you think?
