Everything McDonalds sells is "unhealthy"

Eating any of it is the unhealthy bit.

How can you claim McDonalds is selling you health conscious food when the labels on most of their Super Value Meals EXCEED the 100% recommended daily intake value printed right on the side of the bag/box in one or more categories??

Lets not even get into the fact the food will never rot..

Its like saying meth or crank is good for you, just consuming too much of it is the unhealthy bit.


Pic of this label on the box/wrapper please.

Large Blueberry Pomegranate smoothie - 70g sugar in 541g serving size. That seems quite high for a smoothie.. so I checked out http://recipes.mensh...e-smoothie.aspx which shows around 40g in a serving which has NO added sugars. 70g isn't great, hell people should stay under 100g total for the day - but compared to one with absolutely no added sugar it definitely could be worse. They also have only 50mg of sodium. The diy recipe has 2.5x that!

Grilled Chicken McWrap. Very well, all considered. Tasty too :) Got like 480 calories and 8g of sugar. Impressive to be coming from McDonalds. It however has over a gram of salt, every one of them. This is due to the super brined chicken to keep its juicy grilled flavour when they microwave it up. All in all I doubt you'll find a take out place that don't brine their chicken (grilled or fried) so sodium will always be high.

I just learned that vinegar packets are literally the "healthiest" thing you can get from mcdonalds, aside from water. They also base these nutritional facts off a 2000 calorie 295g sugar diet, as their large nestea ice tea has 59g of sugar which accounts for only a 20%DV


The grilled chicken in McD's is just frozen chicken like you'd buy at the store. Nothing special about it.

Americans need to realise just because you want poision doesn't mean the free market should sell it to you. People have NO RIGHT to be stupid in my view.

People need to learn to mind their own freaking business, if someone chooses to eat fast food, that's their choice and no one has the right to tell them otherwise

Says what authority people need to be kept alive to have other rights.....

Did on the video he just equate hating McDonalds to burning the American flag? I think I actually feel sorry for McDonalds...

Worse country on earth, "free media" allows the guy on the news show to be so personal in this country we report fact and make it illegal to report opinion! The USA is screwed if it worships its flag to the point where it can compare it to nationalism and also compare it to a fast food outlet. USA USA USA

Come on freest people on Earth defend your beloved freedom!

A 9 year old with these views? No. Or at least she can't be taken seriously, I won't. It's none of her business what I eat and when I eat it. If I wanted to eat more healthy I would but I don't want to, that's it.
