Pound Another Big Mac Down Your Gullet
Oh, you know you want to, and so does McDonald's. According to a report by the National Alliance for Nutrition and Activity:
It costs 8 cents more to purchase a McDonald's Quarter Pounder with Cheese, small French fries, and small Coke (890 calories) separately than to buy the Quarter Pounder with Cheese large Extra Value Meal, which comes with a large fries and large Coke (1,380 calories). "McDonald's actually charges customers more to buy a smaller, lower-calorie meal," Wootan said.
This is admittedly an odd case, but you can see through to the heart of the problem (clogged with fat, though it may be): Americans believe that more is better, and damn the consequences. McDonald's should not be blamed. If they didn't offer more calories for the dollar, the joint next door would. Quit asking for it and they'll stop giving it to you.
Life is not about consuming the most consumables for the cheapest price! How about quality, healthiness, diversity, and moderation?
If you're reading this you probably already agree. However, if you found this blog while searching for food to fill your never-ending hunger, head to the nearest McDonald's and pound another Big Mac down your gullet. The fat will leave a nice waxy coating over your nagging sense of needfulness.
