Why is Mcdonalds the posterboy for obesity? It is actually ironically a really good way to lose weight. The portion sizes are generally quite small compared to other feeders and the calories are listed on the box. If you can't even be bothered to read the box and add it up they have a website where you input your meal and see your total calories.You don't feel angry and restricted that you "can't eat junk" and finally there is a tendency to add in unseen calories like oil or more meat to homecooked food to compensate for bad cooking skills meaning that you end up making a calorie laden meal that would have left you better off having just eating a takeaway. Today I had cereal, a ham sandwich and a Big Mac meal. Total of 1600 calories. I don't go there everyday, only when I can't be bothered to cook. All the people getting fat on McDonalds is because they fucking supersize and add all kinds of bullshit. Big tasty meal with large chips, large coke, nuggets, mcflurry, that's like 2,000 calories right there. Don't do that and you can still eat junk without worries.
Just the laziness of mainstream culture. People don't like complex problems, they like simple folk devils they can mob after.
This happens all the time if you think about it, with things like television and
This is true, keep it in moderation and you'll be fine
Yeah McDonald's is kind of fucked right now. They're at this awkward half-way point where people can easily go to burger king for a dirt cheap burger (cheaper than them) and to Five Guys or In 'n Out for a quality burger.
Do you live in a cave, loads of people have gone on TV to do a McDiet and lost weight.
>Anyway McDOnald is way to much expensive
Yes the full McDiet i.e Mickey D's all day everyday did work but it was expensive as fuck which is why I curtailed it to one meal a day.
I think they used to be much worse and their bad reputation is still lingering.
They've been trying to better their image lately which is what I guess this calories control thing is part of
U wot m8? Maybe its a bongland thing but here Burger King meals are like 7 pounds sterling. McDonalds is cheaper especially with vouchers which BK rarely does.
This and education. I used to believe eating any McDonalds made you fat, I didn't know any better and it is what everyone said.
1 McMenu with CBO, Large Fries and a large soda
Almost 9 fucking euros
And being a poorfag I must use menus instead of single things so I'm forced to pick the large soda if I whant large fries
that's bullshit, I'll be 57 kg until they turn down prices
Yah it's a lucky side effect for us dieters. McDonalds never was that bad it was just people pigging out giving the food a bad name, McDonalds is forced to change their image as a result, they ironically end up running a de-facto dieting service where every calorie is meticulously accounted for.
I'm underweight too, and my go to fastfood meal is 2 McChickens and a McDouble with a coke.
~1300 calories and ~50g of protein
literally only 4 dollars
>Work will be over in a little bit
>Have noodles and carrots I can cook at home
>Might work like twenty minutes over
>Suddenly will feel the desire to stop at BK, which I am now craving
>It is actually ironically a really good way to lose weight.
Yeah, just like Subway.
>People don't like complex problems, they like simple folk devils they can mob after.
When people say "blame" or "responsible", they aren't actually looking for the true cause of a problem to the best of their ability. Those people actually just want focal point of blame, an emotional/psychological anchor really.
I hate everyone.
Depends on what you get, and how much of it, just like every other food place anywhere, ever.
Fatty there has two footlongs, probably both meatball marinara with extra cheese or something, both for his own lunch.
Yeah that's pretty shit but it's kinda the price you pay to have world class healthcare. I mean if you got the money, you can get anything that's operable fixed in America. If it can't be fixed here, get your will together.
An excellent example that governnt isn't going to fix our problems. Whatever competitive advantage McDonald's had by posting their caloric count is gone as it is now mandated. Consider that the next time some democrat is spouting off about how they are going to fix your problems or "protect" you.
You can't just look at calories you fat fuck, you need to look at nutrition info just as much. McDonald isn't a fucking diet program, it's fast food. Sure, you may only get a 1000 cal meal, but 70% of those are empty. Your body can't use them and it converts right into fat if you don't work it off (700 cals is fucking hard to burn in a day). What's even better is they put HFCS in fucking everything there that affects your liver, which will also hinder any "diet" or weight loss your trying to get.
A fresh salad is low in cals AND your body can actually use and burn the vitamins and minerals gained.
Genetics is more important than what you eat. I'll order 2 footlongs every time I go to subway and I'm lean and muscular. I'm sedentary most the time too. It's not fair to hate on fat dudes. That said, it's perfectly alright to hate on fat girls, they have one job and they mess it up.
nigger a salad doesnt do shit if you want to maintain your muscle mass while losing fat
you need lots of protein. ive seen a couple ripped guys who eat mcdonalds a few times a week. not unheard of.
Interestingly, McDonald's isn't one of the most unhealthy fast food chains. I saw a ranking of the top 10 and Mickey D's didn't even crack the list. It's just because of how ubiquitous McDonald's is and the generally negative view of fast food that causes it to get such a bad rap.
If what you eat through the day is below your basal metabolic rate, you're not likely to store anything, and this applies to any macronutrients.
The only major difference is that the calories aren't identical since you expend energy to metabolize proteins and fats, so eating the same amount of calories of meat is less fattening than the same amount in bread. This is one of the reasons that many on Atkins don't count calories closely.
>Why is Mcdonalds the posterboy for obesity?
>All the people getting fat on McDonalds is because they fucking supersize and add all kinds of bullshit.
Sounds like you answered your own question. The shit is addictive and unnatural, a lot of people can't handle just keeping it in moderation like you can.
>Sometimes I'll even swap the buns at home for some better ones
You should do this every time, and drop the fries.
McD buns have corn syrup and shit inside of it, and the fries are just plain gross (and overpriced).
1. Coke and Diet Coke both stimulate appetite.
2. Their stuff is all very high calorie density and not very filling, so you can eat like 6 burgers and not feel full if you have a decent sized stomach.
What are all these fast food chains? In bongland we only have KFC, McDonalds and Burger king. There is one Five Guys in London that opened recently and I saw a Taco Bell in Manchester but apart from that these chains are totally nonexistent here.
What the fuck America? Is this seriously where grown men eat?
>2. Their stuff is all very high calorie density and not very filling, so you can eat like 6 burgers and not feel full if you have a decent sized stomach.
True for the first few meals then you get used to it. Big Tasty is too much for me now.
>1. Coke and Diet Coke both stimulate appetite.
I disagree diet coke puts a lid on my appetite.
I appreciated that post
It looks like where mummy takes her autistic manchild to spend his good boy points. I thought all the retarded looking burger joints in GTA was just comedy but America goes above and beyond to become the number one most moronic place on Earth yet again.
I usually get 6 chicken nuggets with either a parfait or an ice cream cone. 430 calories with the parfair, 450 with the ice cream.
It's not healthy by any means, but at least it's not a lot of calories
No little fluffers should die humanely :'(
Why would they do this?
Ya'll niglets don't realize how bad Mcdicks used to be.
They recently went through massive overhaul and recipe changes to make their food more healthy.
The problem is that this increased their prices, so Mcdicks is no longer literally the cheapest food on earth anymore.
I work there, and older customers especially like to bitch about how bad the prices are getting.
But these middle aged folk are almost always fatasses too.
Because when you were still in diapers there was a movie called "Super Size Me" which was extremely popular.
90% of the menu in that film is no longer served at Mcdonalds including the super size. Half the menu at Mcdonalds now is salads.(Not including the new all day breakfast of course.)
Not OP, but I was actually 6 years old when this movie was released.
wew that's nuts. I turn 19 in a couple months anyway.
Did people even watch the movie? He ate nothing but McDonalds for 3 months (I think, don't really remember the time frame) and failed to gain any weight.
He gained 24 lbs in one month.
Honestly how the hell could you watch the movie and miss that. It's basically the title.
Yeah I don't get. Wendy's sells triple quarter pounders, baconator fries and super thick milkshakes in huge cups. All burgers have cheese and they don't charge less if you want a hamburger instead. I really dislike how you can't order a single without cheese for less money than a single with cheese.
>people eat McD's everyday
>some are in this thread
What the fuck is wrong with you people?
Atleast OP limits himself if he's telling the truth.
It's garbage food but I still get a McDouble and McChicken once a week.
