Danny’s Fast Food Survival Guide: McDonald’s


Is there anything to eat at McDonald’s that I can live with? Let’s take a look. Here are some choices I found on the menu listed from lowest to greatest calorie content:

Kid’s Fries, 100 calories, 70mg Sodium, 13g Carbs, 1g Protein
Premium Caesar Salad w/ Grilled Chicken, 190 calories, 580mg Sodium, 10g carbs, 27g protein
Chipotle BBQ Snack Wrap (grilled), 250 calories, 670mg Sodium, 27g carbs, 16g protein
Honey Mustard Snack Wrap (grilled), 250 calories, 650mg Sodium, 27g carbs, 16g protein
Fruit & Maple Oatmeal w/out Brown Sugar, 260 calories, 115mg sodium, 48g carbs, 5g protein
Ranch Snack Wrap (grilled), 270 calories, 700mg sodium, 25 carbs, 16 protein
Fruit & Maple Oatmeal, 290 calories, 160mg sodium, 57 carbs, 5 protein
Premium SW Chicken Salad w/ Chicken, 290 calories, 650mg sodium, 28g carbs, 27g protein
Egg McMuffin, 300 calories, 820mg sodium, 30g carbs, 18g protein

Danny’s Choice: Premium Caesar Salad w/ grilled chicken

Second Choice: Premium Southwest Chicken Salad w/ chicken

Honorable Mention: At first I had a regular hamburger with kid’s fries, BUT THE HAMBURGER CONTAINS TRANS-FATS! I refuse to eat ANYTHING with Trans-Fats. I am in awe that restaurants still serve foods with Trans-Fats when it is completely avoidable!


Danny’s Choice: Egg McMuffin, HOLD THE CHEESE! (I do not like to put cheese on sandwiches, because you hardly taste it and if I am going to eat cheese, I WANT TO TASTE IT! It saves 50 calories! This changes the numbers to look like this: 250 calories, 29g carbs, 15g protein.

Now McDonald’s offers the Egg White Delight, and it is DELIGHTFUL! No yolk, but add cheese and it’s 250 calories, also! Try it! My new favorite!

Second Choice: Fruit & Maple Oatmeal w/out Brown Sugar (carb loader! Better add some protein!)


Danny’s Choice: Kid’s Fries (I’m sorry. McDonald’s fries are still the best!)
