Frankly, eating at McDonalds is NOT ideal if you’re trying to lose fat, stay trim, and prioritize your health. BUT – I also know that people are going to grab fast food from time to time. If you’re going to eat at McDonald’s, here are three choices that aren’t as bad as the rest:
1 – Whole Egg – Round or Scrambled
70 cal / 4.5 g fat / 1g carb / 7g protein
Ask for salt & pepper packets, as well as hot sauce!
2 – Pico Guacamole with Artisan Grilled Chicken
420 cal / 12g fat / 39g carb / 38g protein
Order on sesame seed bun, skip the buttermilk ranch sauce.
3 – Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad
350 cal / 12g fat / 27g carb / 37g protein
Surprisingly low in calories and high in protein!
Fast food should not be your number one choice if getting and staying at a healthy weight is your goal. However, if you’re going to grab and go every once and a while, there are typically some decent meal choices that can get you by. I hope these three (semi) healthy McDonald’s picks help you stay on track with your fitness program!
