Was not expecting that at the end! Holy fruck! No I will NOT make it vegetarian.
I mean the add talked about in the article, though the article is interesting itself.
A quarter pounder with large fries and 24 oz sodda is 35% fat by calories, just a bit above the US recommendations and right in line with typical US diet averages. However it contains over 180 grams of carbohydrates and just 9% protein. Actually the macro ratios are very close to government recommendations. If you are just looking at the food pyramid and macros, McDonald's seems like health food.
Wow...the only thing scarier than the message is the crappy acting.
Another scary thing is all of the comments. But that's HuffPost for ya.
tfarny makes a good point, though i'm guessing that one meal also comes close to USDA daily recommended number of calories.
Everything in moderation, including moderation.
It's unfortunate that the article glossed over the MAJOR issues with McDonald's food. HFCS, UNHEALTHY fats used to fry starchy potatoes, extremely high-glycemic buns (worse than wonder bread), low quality grain-diet beef and truck loads of carbohydrates.
There is not a single redeeming quality in a McDonald's meal. Instead focusing in on the fact that their burgers are made with psuedo-beef is unfair to meat in general
