So I am going to give you some calorie counts on Fast Food. Remember that in most cases 1200 - 2000 calories is what you are to take in depending on your size and level of activity per DAY. I was told by many Dietician that you should limit your fat intake to 5 g per item. So here we go:
McDonald's Big Mac 540 Calories 29 grams of fat
Burger King Whopper 670 calories 40 grams of fat
Wendy's Bacon Deluxe Double 880 calories 52 grams of fat
Taco Bell Nachos Bell Grande 770 calories 24 grams of fat
That is the sandwich now for the sides:
McDonald's Fries Medium order 380 calories 19 grams of fat
Dairy Queen Onion Rings 360 calories 16 grams of fat
Popeye's (chicken) Coleslaw 260 calories 23 grams of fat
Gotta have a drink right?
Wendy's large Frosty 540 calories 8 grams of fat
McDonald's Sweet Tea Large 280 calories 0 grams of fat
Dunkin Donuts Iced Carmel Latte 450 Calories 12 grams of fat
Here is a little thing they forgot to teach us, sugar = fat. 0 grams of fat but a boat load of sugar. My ex use to eat cinnamon bears because they were fat free. well that is what she would tell me anyway. sugar no good.
So if you ate at McD's and had a big mac, med fries, and sweet Ice tea large you would consume about 1200 calories in one meal. remember the daily total? I know from personal experience that my favorite meal before was a super Sonic Cheeseburger, Sonic sized fries, and a route 44 Coke. any guesses? around 1800 calories.
Wonder why there is an obesity epidemic? Do Not get me wrong I am not pointing fingers and blaming any of these fast food places. We make the decision, Ronald is not holding a gun on us making us eat there. We as a whole must take control of ourselves and teach our children better too.
Another statistic I heard is that this generation of young people are the first in a long time to have an average life span shorter than the previous generation, cause, OBESITY!
Well I hope this helps someone make a better decision next time they drive by their favorite Fat Farm. :)
