Sorry...But anything coming from McGross is not food in any way as far as I am concerned. Processed junk food, loaded with sodium and fat and beside the smell that comes from this so called restaurant is disgusting.
now the salad would probably be healthy but thats about it
Oh my gosh, people! Be reasonable. Everybody in the entire world knows that nothing from a fast food restaurant is healthy; that includes FITNESS magazine. They idea is that if you HAVE to eat McDonald's, this meal won't completely sabotage you. FITNESS isn't saying, "Hey,stop eating your homemade grilled chicken salads and go to McDonald's and get a cheeseburger!"
All of the food/nutrition Nazis need to GTFO!
i worked at mickey ds and everything has sugar in it besides some of thier salads and their hamburgers are so frozen tat u can throw them to the ground and they break apart into tiny pieces itz horrible
Not everyone has time to make themselves a healthy meal every single day. In those instances, knowing what to order without blowing your cal intake helps somewhat. Frankly if it bothers you so much, find a different site with FREE recipes, FREE diet tips that you access for FREE and probably don't even freaking buy the magazines for-- nor click on the ads for or even subscribe to. I'm sure they'll be reaaal sorry to lose such a dedicated reader.
I'm sick of food nazi's telling me I can't eat carbs and I can't eat red meat and all the other anti-food propaganda. Like anything in life, excess consumption is harmful; yes. But I lost 50lbs eating a wide range of foods, with the occasional fast food-- and to be honest, it kept me sane and sticking to my diet. When I tell my friends, they don't believe me and insist on living on celery sticks. Guess who lost weight, and who didn't? Guess who feels happy and who feels miserable?
This is nothing more than ads from fast food restaurants..and I am appalled that a magazine and website that supposedly is all about health and fitness would lower themselves to this. With a little foresight I think we all can avoid giving our money to McDonalds, Wendy's, Subway, etc. Shame on fitness magazine - just call an ad an ad and don't treat your readers like idiots!..
They include fast food options for peope who have demanding careers and we don't always have time to cook. When you are on the road and in a hurry, sometimes a fast food establishment is the only thing available at the time, if you are in between flights. I appreciate them offering possibly healthier "ALTERNATIVES", instead of ording the first thing you see on the menu because you are pressed for time.
Fried red meat, with fatty processed cheese on white bread healthy? The salad MIGHT be healthy, but I don't trust anything from McDonald's. I won't do the apples either. Most of the nutrients were in the missing skin and have probably been treated with a preservative as well. (The caramel sauce is nothing but artificial flavored high fructose corn syrup.)
erikabroughton, I agree. I am a bit dismayed at the inclusion of fast food in this list, even if it is salad options. I don't know that I'll be looking at this site much if I continue to see such things.
I don't know how much McDonald's paid to have this appear in this article, but when I think of healthy, I do not think of this meal. Their nutritional info indicates 460 calories & 1530mg of sodium. This meal includes white bread devoid of any nutrition, processed cheese, saturated fat & trans fats. How is this healthy?
