Lets add up the calories.
The daily calorie intake for a male to maintain
the same weight is about 2500 KCals and, a woman, 1800 KCal,
Now lets work out the calories in a mcdonalds
You go to McDonalds
and eat a supersize meal. The calories are listed below.
You will have eaten a whopping 1842
KCals - Just as well you didn't have a McDonalds
Strawberry Milk Shake (506 K Cals)!
That amounts to 1842 KCals in one meal.
If you had two of these in a day, you would put
on weight unless you were doing a load of exercise like <3
hours of racketball or squash to burn around 1400 Calories>.
Fat Content of a Mcdonalds Meal
Also, the amount of fat, 83 grams, and Salt, 2.44
grams, can create health problems too.
So, as I'm sure you realise, quick meals don't
mean quick weight loss and a Mcdonalds meal sure is stacked with
calories and fat.
