Today, I did something I practically never do -- went to McD's for lunch. I've been there before, but not this year (sometimes years can pass between visits). However, I had a hankering for grease so I went.
I assumed I was eating garbage, particularly since I ordered a double quarter pounder with cheese meal. However, I was somewhat disappointed to learn while I was reading my paper placemat that this wasn't entirely the case.
My meal was only 1330 calories, which is noticeably less than I usually eat for lunch (I normally shoot for the 1500-2000 range and would rather be overlimit than underlimit). In addition, the meal was MUCH smaller in terms of weight and size than what I usually like to eat, so I wasn't even full. Having said that, I normally eat whole foods (i.e. veggies, rice, potatoes, meat, etc) so it takes more bulk to get enough calories.
With 60g of fat and 1370g of sodium, it ain't exactly health food, but I wouldn't categorize it as being nearly as bad as people say. I have no plans to return soon because that's not a taste I crave very often and I like my normal chow, but I just thought it was interesting.
