On Taco Bell:

“I saw a Taco Bell yesterday—it made my stomach scream. If I had nothing else to do, I would be, like, ‘Three bean-and-cheese burritos and give me some nachos with extra cheese sauce!’ I would so kill that s***. But what I’ve learned is that just ’cause you can chew it and swallow it and poop it out doesn’t mean it’s food.”

… says Cameron.

  1. never been to taco bell so i’m not sure about them specifically but definitely agree with her! lots of weird fake processed stuff that people are eating now 🙁

  2. My Sicilian grandad was a cook in the Italian Navy long
    before emigrating past Liberty Island. He was a farmer
    long before that. So he taught me how to be a cook and
    a farmer too. As my bro & I were his garden helpers, you
    can say we handled food from the reverse direction that
    Cameron was indicating: From fertilizer to raw material
    & finished product to the dinner table.

    From a basic fuel standpoint, Mexican, Chinese,
    Italian food is fairly well balanced. It’s the artificial
    extras they pollute it with that get in the way of
    it’s healthy enjoyment. Wish I’d taken Chemistry,
    but I’ve read extensively re: natural food science.
    So imho it’s not the basic ingredients that lack
    a good balance from a fuel standpoint. It’s the
    modern junk chemicals they pollute the food with
    to make it fast food.

    Case in point: We used to have Ox Heart peanut
    butter back in the 1950s and 1960s. Raw,natural
    peanut butter w/ ground peanut paste on bottom,
    pure peanut oil floating on top. It wasn’t until they
    started hydrogenating the oils to extend shelf life
    that they made it dangerous to human health. Fast
    food=slow death. Take it from a cook: best way to
    ” Live long & prosper ” is to simply learn how to
    make it yourself, store it, nuke it, carry it in a warmer.

    For those who’ve learned that certain cuisines suit
    their palete & intestines better than others, it’s worth
    an investment of time & money to simply do it yourself.
    Cameron Diaz is an intelligent, perceptive person
    whose comments I’ve considered posted from this
    website. As a practical hobby, it realy is worth it to
    buy non G.M.O. corn seeds, make some good soil
    find some pure water, and take it from there.

  3. Comments like these really annoy me. It is over sweeping and inaccurate. Yes, taco bell serves food. Some of it is high calorie, low nutrient and contains various chemical stabilizers. So do many grocery store breads. Taco bell has lettuce, grains, legumes, cheese, and leaner meats. I categorize those as food. Teaching people how to make better choices from the options they have is much healthier than an claim of “good vs bad”. I don’t know why celebrities think they are nutritionists because they have hired one.

    • She means it’s not nutritious food. Eat to live, not live to eat. That’s the difference. She’s simplifying it for the masses– you understood her point, right? Sound bites they work.

      You’re over thinking it.

  4. I have never been to Taco Bell or eaten a burrito. But I consider beans to be real food, I put them in salads (they’re a good source of protein/fiber), and I eat cheese occasionally too. So what am I missing? Is there something in Taco Bell burritos that is really gross and bad for you? No idea.
    I think Cameron has a wonderful figure, not my ideal, but great legs and she looks fit.

    • Beef, Water, Seasoning [Cellulose, Chili Pepper, Onion Powder, Salt, Oats (Contains Wheat), Maltodextrin (Corn, Potato, Tapioca), Soy Lecithin, Tomato Powder, Sugar, Soybean Oil, Sea Salt, Yeast Extract (Contains Gluten), Spices, Garlic Powder, Citric Acid, Caramel Color, Disodium Inosinate, Disodium Guanylate, Potassium Chloride, Cocoa Powder Processed with Alkali, Natural And Artificial Flavors, Trehalose, Modified Corn Starch, Inactivated Yeast, Lactic Acid, Torula Yeast, Natural Smoke Flavor], Salt, Sodium Phosphate, Less Than 2% Beef Broth, Potassium Phosphate, Potassium Lactate. CONTAINS: SOYBEANS, WHEAT.

      There are many problematic things here- yeast extract is MSG. Disodium Inosinate and Guanylate are flavor enhancers used in c junction with MSG. Not to mention for 99 cents I doubt youre getting good quality beef, probably the lowest quality meat you can find.

      BEANS
      Pinto Beans, Soy Oil (Trans Fat Free Shortening With TBHQ And Citric Acid To Protect Flavor), Seasoning Blend (Salt, Sugar, Spice, Beet Powder [Color], Autolyzed Yeast Extract, Sunflower Oil, Maltodextrin [Corn, Potato, Tapioca], Inactivated Yeast, Corn Flour, Natural Flavors, Trehalose, Modified Corn Starch And Less Than 2% Silicone Dioxide As A Processing Aid).

      More MSG and preservatives.

      • ^^ exactly!! Beans themselves are great. But most fast food restaurants add lots of bad stuff to make them taste better/prepared faster.

    • Never eaten a burrito?! Girl make yourself a burrito! I’ve been making burritos for breakfast with eggs, spinach, cilantro, tomato, and avocado. It’s delicious!!!

      • Heh there’s no good Mexican food around my place (not that Taco Bell is real Mexican food). But I eat all the foods you mentioned, I just have never wrapped them up in a tortilla! Must try it sometime.

        @C – Thanks for the detailed explanation. I don’t eat beef but yeah $1 beef is probably not good stuff lol. I guess you get what you pay for.

  5. Taco Bell gives me a belly ache, just like McDonald’s. My husband can’t stay away from it for long even though it inevitably gives him a stomach ache as well. He’s like a moth to a flame and can’t just look away.

    • Many of us have damaged digestive systems and almost all fast food will make the symptoms worse. I wouldn’t reccomend it fr anyone, but if is giving you an upset stomach it’s just plain dumb to keep going back.

      • Who says I keep going back? I don’t eat the junk, i focus on clean eating. As for hubby, he’s a bit of a masochist when it comes to food, whether it involves Taco Bell or habanero peppers. Referring to people as plain dumb is plain rude.

        • I didn’t refer to anyone as plain dumb, I said the action was dumb. We all do dumb things, and I think that’s dumb. Do you think taco bell is a sart choice??

          • Uhm did i defend taco bell? Pretty sure the fact that i omit it from my own diet confirms that i don’t think it’s a healthy choice.

            Well i guess since we all do dumb things i’ll excuse your dumb comment.

          • I was referring my comment to your husband, who you said does eat taco bell Jesus. Let me ask you a question? Is it rational to do something that hurts you? That’s what your husband is doing, you know that’s a little stupid and I do t mean it in spiteful way. It’s silly like s owing cigarettes.

          • Taco Bell menu includes Jesus?! To my knowledge he has never ordered Jesus off the menu.

            I don’t judge his choice; he eats it because he likes the way it tastes and it’s really cheap and sometimes convenient. He doesn’t eat it every day for every meal; i would take issue with that since it would be really unhealthy and we share a bathroom. It’s a tummy ache, not the end of the world. He likes Taco Bell and he’s a grown man with his own money, he’s free to eat it when the whim hits him.

          • The fact that you guys bickered over what’s dumb… is dumb. Lol god get over it stop being so sensitive and take things too seriously. No one’s winning a medal for having the best verbal defense. And over something so small lololol

          • I’ve stopped commenting here and I remember why, the women are so hypersensitive to everything. Can’t make a comment or a little criticism without being attacked.

          • If I remember correctly, Candy, you weren’t above a little cattiness & attacking others yourself. Not to mention defensive, rude, hypocritical….

          • Defensive, yes since I was always being attacked. Rude, only I’d you’re overly sensitive. Hypocritical, that’s hilarious. It’s not my fault everything is “rude” to you.

          • Boo hoo… you were always being attacked… and you call other people hypersensitive? Now, that’s hilarious & a bit paranoid. It’s not everyone else’s fault if you feel that every one is “attacking” you. If you can’t handle all the “attacking” aimed at you, then you shouldn’t be here.
            Just another emotional, defensive female on here, bleh…

          • If it is you, then let it go already. I also remember how you just wouldn’t stop until you would get warned & possibly banned. Things have been looking up here lately without the nasty fights that plagued this site before. Don’t start up again.
            And no, this isn’t an attack, this is for the sake of peace around here.

          • I know, as evident with the comments following… your comment lol. And I guess I got one for myself too.

            Anyway I’m no tst. 🙂 I’m Naressa, 22, and I live in Malaysia. I occasionally comment here when celebs I love are featured, and when I think it’s important to point something up. Which in this case, is this situation going around.

            It saddens me that women here who are probably twice my age (or almost) are still so excessively critical with each other over trivial things like whose comment is better and relatively coherent… when elsewhere many are deprived of the even basic physiological necessities like staple food, let alone extensive ones such as those offered by Taco Bell. How will young women my generation be able to develop good perspectives in and on life when those ahead of us in the timeline are still too busy beating around the bush trying to point out each other’s flaws over the littlest things?

            If you think about it… the hypersensitivity lingering here ironically demonstrates how insensitive our thinking can be. Like, lighten up lol. We’re only helping our egos with this.

          • Actually there IS a medal! I would love to be nominated, please submit my name to the ballot. Thank you.

            P.S. is that you tst? Lololol

      • Agreed! Have you tried the Beachbody Ultimate Reset?

        If not, please do. You learn just how damaged your digestive system is and how much better you feel once it’s “reset.”

  6. Her books actually based on science and not fads, if you’re interested in nutrition you’ll know most of what’s in it already but it’s much better than mst celebrities. I wouldn’t eat taco bell, with my digestive issues it wouldn’t be worth it. Saying it isn’t food is hyperbole, but it’s low quality food that nobody should be eating regularly. The fact is most people who eat at these restaurants eat there regularly. Most people I know who eat at these restaurants are fat and eat there daily.

  7. she has always reminded me of a happy lil puppy dawg. adorable. she has obviously aged and thats appropriate–refreshing to see a celebrity that doesnt botox away their wisdom and beauty lines.

  8. she is so right! our stomach is not a trash can
    people shpuld start cooking healthy food insetad of going to Mcd or KFC or even cooking those fast meals from bags like mashed potato
    America is full of food like that
    It won’t just make you fat but it can get you carcinoma

    • when I was in usa (I live in europe) I noticed how much sugar is in everything at the supermarkets. also in bread. you make buiscuits that are 800 calories for one piece!!! actually,it IS scary. I admire american people who remain thin because for me it would be a real nightmare if european markets would became as yours. I could only find the worst products ever..it was so unecessary to fill them uo so much! actually,smarties were the lowest calories choice I found as a snack(apart from apple) and I mean..were I am eating Smarties is not properly considered an “healthy habit”. poor you,how do you cope with this!!!?

      • …to be clear, there wasn’t any improvement in the taste. all those extra addings didn’t make food tasting better than normal-for-european markets’ standard..so why? does your country want people to be fat for some reason?

  9. Yea but one must not forget that these rules apply to people who can afford eating better.A lot of people cannot afford a more balanced diet, but those who can and choose not to should feel bad for themselves.For the rest these are calories that can allow them to live. O well

    • i would disagree with that. i think its a LOT cheaper to buy bulk beans and rice at the grocery store and make your own (without all the weird chemical ingredients) than to buy them at taco bell. The problem is just that people don’t know that, and don’t know how to cook them, easy as it is.

      • Yeah, sounds like an excuse to me. It’s not as if somebody who’s eating fast food can’t afford rice beans oatmeal tuna. Where I live right now I watch how much people spend at the store, their baskets full of hotdogs and hamburger helper. Their Grocery bill would be cheaper buying healthier grains in bulk, frozen veggies. Running outside is free. I don’t ever use the gym, I run outside.

        Eating healthy isn’t expensive, and on the flip eating unhealthy isn’t cheap. I mean that in two ways. Eating healthy can be cheap or expensive. Its expensive if you’re eating kale or coconut water or anything trendy like that. Junk food isn’t very filling so you’re buying more, and even though you get more calories( which you don’t need) you must eat more to get nutrients. Eating fast food is cheap compared to other restaurants but not a meal of rice, beans and a frozen vegetable. Also take knt consideration the medical expenses and costs of being unhealthy.

        It blows my mind that any educated person could eat the way so many people do.I’ve been shocked at how little people actually know about nutrition, they just don’t care.

        • exactly. you dont need to eat at a trendy health food store to eat healthily. people don’t care because they dont understand or take seriously the connection between what they eat, and how they feel. its just a problem of education. more nutrition should be taught in schools.

    • i also disagree, i never got the idea of “fast food/ candies/…” are cheaper than “healthy food / fruit/…”
      i think restaurants cost much more than home prepared meals.

  10. haha i love hows shes having THREEand Nachos,cause thats true either one damn taco doesnt fillme up i could eat a ton,its liek that with every fast food,well for me.but “real” food filles you up and you dont ant more more more cause i dont know why

  11. i never had taco, but i don’t agree with her, i mean : bread/ meat/ bean/ chease < are food to me.
    processed colored candies/ soda/…etc , are NOT real food in my opinion.

    moderation moderation.

    • yes but there are foods that make moderation a lot more difficult since they are gonna make you craving for them and for extra sugar/salt for days after. avoiding processed food every time is possible makes it a bit easier not to desire them compulsively and mantain a clear mind. at least,for some of us.
