If you’re trying to lose weight, it’s a no-brainer that you have to avoid eating fast food to get the results you want. But sometimes, you just gotta give into those deep-fried cravings and get yourself some food from McDonald’s.
When this inevitable moment comes, you want to make sure that you’re prepared for it and choose a relatively healthy menu item because after all, you don't want to throw all that hard work out the window.
There’s one meal on the McDonald’s menu that you should avoid if you want to stay on track with your weight loss. This tasty menu staple may be a fan-favorite, but it’s absolutely terrible for weight loss. Curious to know what it is? Click the next slide to find out the worst thing to order at McDonald’s for weight loss.
It’s McDonald’s Big Breakfast with Hotcakes, Biscuit, Scrambled Eggs, Sausage, Hashbrowns, Hotcake Syrup & Butter. This morning spread weighs in at 1,350 calories and has 65 g fat (25 g saturated fat, 0.5 g trans fat), 2,100 mg sodium, 155 g carbs (6 g fiber, 48 g sugar), 35 g protein.
If you’re still in the mood for some Mickey D’s breakfast, opt for the Egg McMuffin instead. It’s got fewer calories, fat, and sodium than the big Breakfast Meal and won’t be as detrimental to your weight loss progress.
