Wipegreaser, the thing I read just now that bothers me most is that your parents are really willing to kick out over your eating at McDonalds??? This is of concern to me. Thinking back (a loonnng time ago) when I was a kid, if my parents had issued a threat like that it would immediately set up a huge inner drive to do that very thing. For give me but, you need some independence and there is more of an issue than just food here quite obviously! Are your parents vegans? There are far worse things you as a teenager you could be getting into. Goodness.
