The Create a Meal flash app measures the malnutrition in McDonald's food. Take a typical breakfast such as a Bacon, Egg, & Cheese Biscuit, 3 Hotcakes with syrup and margarine, a large Coke with a Hot Caramel Sundae and a packet of Cesar dressing and croutons. That's 72 grams of fat, 296 grams of carbs and 1950 calories. Croutons will kill you.
I cut my fast food consumption in 2003 by about 95%. I haven't been to a McD's in over 6 months and it's been 6 and a half years since my last Taco Bell. Feels good.

i haven't been back to mcd's since i learned about the beef flavoring in the fires. (I was addicted to them for YEARS) even tho they have a lot more veggie options now, i'll never be back. They lied to me!
i mean fries. i don't care about beef in the fires.
You know, since moving to Chicago, I haven't had a need to eat fast food at all. I enjoy fries or whatever every now and then, but there are so many other more interesting, even more convenient solutions (such as burrito joints, Huey's Hot Dogs, etc).
I too have ceased to consider McDonald's as an eating option. It's interesting you wrote about this today- I was just walking up Clark and noticed this awful stench in the air. That's when I realized I was walking by a McDonalds. Sometimes I get in trouble with friends tho, as McD's does really register in my brain as "food" anymore.
You make me proud, Jason.
Don't get too proud. I eat any bacon or snack chips within arm's reach.
