McDonald’s Evilness….

Once upon a time, I worked for a restoration company.

I worked long hours, so I slept as much as possible, which meant grabbing fast food for breakfast.

I wasn’t very organized, so I grabbed fast food for lunch.

If I was working a long day, I would grab fast food for dinner.

McDonalds was the place of choice.  My sandwich combo of choice is the #2 – quarter pounder with cheese & bacon meal.

I had that last night since I hadn’t really planned on dinner before taking my kid to get fitted for skis.

I am following Weight Watchers.  This morning – in an effort to be accountable, if only to myself – I went to the McDonald’s Canada website to calculate the calories/fat/fibre so I could count my points for yesterday.   

The meal – 1100 calories, 45 grams of fat, more than 24 points.  

No wonder I’m fat.

McDonald’s is now on the “banned” list – period.  For me, for my husband, for my children – there is absolutely no need for any of us to be eating that much crap.  If we want a hamburger, we’ll make them ourselves.  If we want fast food – we’ll hit up a sushi restaurant – that at least is somewhat healthy.

    Isn’t it crazy how many calories are in that crap!

    Skip the fries and the drink. The stupid fries have almost as many calories as the sandwich.

    When I was on weight watchers my daily point allowance was 20-25 points towards the end. I can’t even imagine one meal taking ALL of my points! I agree McDonalds is EVIL.

    Skip the drink too. Pop has a ton of calories, not to mention junk in the so-called diet stuff. Drink water instead. Keep a bowl or salad or soup in the fridge, so you don’t need to go to McKill. Cheaper, and much healthier.
