    Talking Is McDonald's meal really that bad?

    When I only have 15 min for lunch, I usually go for McDonald's meal. Are they really that bad? McChicken meal looks good. I was wondering what's the total calories in McChicken meal(with middium fries and soda.)?

    Hi maxxlina! welcome!

    For basic nutritional info, refer to the sticky:'fat loss tips' by w8. If I'm in a pinch and have to eat McD's I usually get the chicken ceasar salad with a lil' dressing.

    Yes, McDonalds is pretty bad. However depending on what you get, you can significantly cut the fat. For instance get a regular hamburger then a cheese burger.

    true - but not too much fat in 1 hamburger there but also not much protein either. won't kill you but seriously - it's crap food.

    there are choices that are much worse then others on their menu but none are really good choices - especially as a usual thing.

    If you have to eat that shit, get a burger & salad, lose the bun and dressing unless it's plain oil&vinegar!

    McDonald's is great if you like a lot fat, salt and sugar!

    This is a fact: McDonald's is the world's largest consumer of cow eyeballs. That's right, cow eyeballs.

    Sure it's 100% beef. They just don't advertise what parts...

    MacDonald's = full of trans-fats and hydrogenated fats.

    Nasty stuff.

    It does taste nice though, so once every blue moon for a treat is fine.

    Why don't you make your lunch the night before and take it with you?

    By the way, what job only has a 15 minute lunch break?
