Why in the world would you go to a fast food place expecting healthy???

You said yourself"you dont eat fast food OFTEN".So you do eat it,
You think ALL people who eat at CFA are fat overweight people who go every other day?

Their are plenty of options including grilled wraps,salads and such if you dont want friend.I had my first fried CFA in 3 years a month ago.Just got tired of my usual.
It was fine,
Who eats sauces thinking they are healthy?lol
Alexia fries are the most blandest over priced fries I have eanten.If you want healthy.Sure but taste is averag
Alexia fries are great if you know how to use seasoning (I do). It's better that way because you can season them to your liking. As for me I eat fast food once in a while, but certainly not large portions. I had a slice of pizza from Whole Foods the other night for dinner, and today I ordered lunch out. As for your other comment, yes, many people that eat fast food don't eat well and some are definitely overweight and even obese. I'm aware of their grilled options. Doesn't change my opinion of them. It's not that I'm expecting them to healthy. It's that people are raving about the place as if their food is of such high quality. It's the same rubbish as McDonald's and Wendy's. Look at what's in their ingredients and you can't convince me otherwise.

You have yet to do so. Do that and then come back to me about how their food is of high quality.

The difference with Chik Fil A chicken sandwiches and Mcdonalds, Burger King, Wendys, etc is that since it's their main product, when you order, that chicken breast was fried just a few minutes ago and not sitting under a lamp. Also, they follow higher quality standards. And the chicken breasts at CFA are HUGE and delicious.

That I can agree with, but the ingredients are that much different.

I think you misunderstand what they mean by high quality.
High quality in that its always freshly prepared and not sitting under a heat lamp.No brown lettuce or soggy tomatoes,very clean restaurants,exceptional customer service and fast and efficient service.

The nature of fast food is that its cheaper and efficient .So yes people who are overweight will be attracted to it for those reasons alone but thats no different than people who go for a lunchtime meal or a break from running around town shopping.
Generally speaking I have never felt bloated either like you do with many restaurants like Popeye's,Burger King,Five Guys,etc.

When i do go to McDonalds, Wendy's,etc I do get their grilled Chicken sandwiches but thats usually only because there is no CFA. They are not as big as those companies. I'm sure this is why people rave about it because why go to a hamburger place for a chicken sandwich if you have a choice?Their salads,wraps etc just taste better and are of higher quality due to their fresher ingredients.
Have you seen McDonalds fruit cup compared to CFA?

McDonalds has stepped up their game in quality as far as ingredients ,but many other places are still far behind so CFA is a welcome addition for most

Yes, amazing isn't it? The owners of a company are not allowed to make donations to the charities, and organizations of their choice without government vilifying them. A government official that is supposed to represent ALL of its occupants.

Yeah well at least you're clarifying what you mean by high quality, because their ingredients aren't that superior, that I'm sure of.
