Or a secondary heading could have been

Why we are getting so Freakin Fat!!!

One McDonald’s Big Mac contains 540 calories, 29 grams of fat, and more than 40 grams of highly-processed, blood-sugar-spiking carbohydrates.

Big mac


And that doesn’t even count the fries and soft drink that you KNOW you’re going to order with it.


At the same rate, here are a few alternative food choices and amounts that will land you at the same 540 calories:

 140 medium strawberries
5 medium bananas
1 QUART of plain Greek yogurt
14 oz of grilled chicken breast
17 cups of broccoli
6 and 1/2 cups of blueberries

Better yet, go ahead and eat ALL of this in one sitting:

 4 oz of grilled chicken (120 cals)
3 cups of broccoli (90 cals)
1 medium banana (100 cals)
8 oz of plain Greek yogurt (130 cals)
10 medium strawberries (40 cals)
1/2 cup of blueberries (40 cals)

So basically, you have an OVERFLOWING plate of chicken and veggies and then a HUGE dessert of yogurt and fruit. I mean, that’s a massive quantity of food right there. In fact, most people wouldn’t even be able to finish it.

And guess what? It still contains fewer calories than ONE Big Mac and it’s WAY healthier.

Simply put, you don’t have to starve yourself (at all) to lose weight and shed those stubborn pounds…you just need to learn how to choose the right foods, and then eat your heart out.

Go put a brick through the McDonalds Window (actually don’t do that)

Then hit the butcher and the veggie section of the grocery store and eat like a King or Queen!!

Crush it
