Its really not, it just seems like it, if you make the exact same thing at home it actually taste better..") Like french dips, We are making those tonight at home, and they are way better than arbys roast beef or french dips!

That's disgusting. If you really think that you've been severely brainwashed and have a body stuffed with MSG, aspartame, preservatives, and god knows what else. Real whole foods are delicious and taste WAY better.

Because it's something you don't regularly do, and someone else is cooking for you. I just had some Chinese food because I had not had any since the summer, it was a treat and no cooking for me! :)

Fat and salt.


Take-out is not balanced for 'nutrition' because they want you to keep coming back, it is balanced to appeal to what you CRAVE.

And our bodies really do like FAT and SALT, which makes take-out food downright irresistible.
