I give McDonald's credit for posting the nutrition info next to the order counter. You got fair warning what you're getting into.

um...a calorie is a unit of FOOD ENERGY, therefore energy is correct.

its the marketing spin I'm laughing at. It's deliberately confusing low-engaged consumers my framing caloric counts as energy.  It's like talking tax relief vs tax cut.  Energy has positive connotations and most consumers aren't aware of their daily needs ... They just feel low in energy because are obese and these corporations know this.

Sooooooo much judgment on here... People can be so self-righteous! I'm perfectly fine with the idea of eating Mickey D's maybe once every month or two. It's a nice treat, especially the Happy Meals. Go much some flax seeds or something.

"Go munch some flax seeds or something". You are correct. Sooooo much judgement on here.

I'm sorry I find this laughable, If people are eating burgers and fries from Mc Donalds do you really think they are concerned with the amount of calories they are taking in, I mean really now!

Well yes I will now limit myself to three big Macs, four large fryes, three apple pies, two milk shakes. and one diet coke.

AWESOME!!!

It may change some people's opinions at first but then prolly most people won't pay any attention after a while and just go on as they are now. As for me, I'm trying to avoid McD's as I'm dieting. :-)

There was a rise in their biggest burgers globally when they launched the mcsalad range.

calories don't really matter...nutrition density and glycemic index do.

A glycemic count might do more good. Calories don't count. Don't fall for this false science.

As if people already eating this food are going to bother with reading fat or calorie content.They wanna eat it they are gonna eat it regardless! Eat up America! Sheesh!

Dumbing down America again. Its obvious this has to be done because people in this country arent smart enough to know that fast food is not good for you.

I don't care what they add to their menu, it still is unnatural food, with no nutritional value. PROCESSED FOOD is kept in a warehouse and then shipped all over the country and the world. You figure how many preservatives are keeping that food from rotting before reaching the chains.

That is why it is called FAST FOOD!!! What are you going to tell us next? That water is wet? Dirt will make you dirty?
04:35 PM on 09/12/2012
It's awful. What is worse is what the demand for this kind of food: (processed, heavy on the meats) has done to animal rights. I am disgusted. Go Vegetarian/Vegan!

depends on which animals you are talking about...

"one study showed that simply mowing an alfalfa field caused a 50% reduction in the gray-tailed vole population. mortality rates increase with each pass of the tractor to plow, plant and harvest. rabbits, mice and pheasants...are the indiscriminate "collateral damage" of row crops and the grain industry" (from http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1002888-8,00.html)

there are also issues of nutrient density and ability of humans to digest plant materials...

Thats a good idea...many restaurants and so forth have been doing that already for some time now. This may help some people to a certain degree make better, healthier food choices if their
staring 500 calories v/s 1,200 calories in the face for the BIG meal deal. I know this influences my choices when I sit down at a restaurant and have this info in front of me. Just makes me a lot more mindful of what alternative choices I may have.

This is only for people who arent smart enough to realize that going out to eat is not the healthiest of choices. If you need help knowing what is and what isnt good for you well then there isnt much hope for you.
05:26 PM on 09/12/2012
I totally agree!!! I am one of those people who do make food choices wiser if given the chance. This at least gives us an opportunity to choose.
