In the true spirit of someone who counts their macros, I believe that given a nutritional chart or My Fitness Pal, I can make almost anything fit my nutritional goals. What I’m about to describe isn’t something I would recommend making a habit out of. Eating McDonald’s on a daily basis is far from being healthy, but it can fit your macros if you’re smart enough to count it out and eat sensibly. The ideal way to utilize this meal plan would be if you’re on a road trip (hitting a lot of rest stops) or maybe you were just lazy and didn’t make any/enough food prep for the week. Maybe you’ll just wanna give this a shot because its so taboo or because of the irony and shock value. Either way, I’m just going to be counting calories, carbohydrates, fats, and protein during this exercise. Its impossible not to blow the sodium out of the water because fast food has so many preservatives. I’m going to base the macro counting off of a 2000 calorie diet where your goal would be maintenance (staying at at the same weight).
-Scrambled Eggs (2) 15p 5c 12f 190cal
-Cinnamon Roll 8p 57c 9f 420cal
total= 23p 62c 21f 610cal
-Cali Cobb Salad 35p 12c 11f 280cal
-Chicken Selects(3) 23p 28c 20f 380cal
total= 58p 40c 31f 660cal
-Bacon Ranch Salad 33p 12c 9f 260cal
-Small French Fries 2p 30c 13f 250cal
total= 35p 42c 22f 510cal
-Fruit n’ Yogurt Parfait 4p 31c 2f 160cal
This calculation isn’t perfect, but its fairly close to where it should be. It really isn’t easy to find decent choices on the McDonald’s menu (mostly due to most food being so high in fat). Surprising there are some choices that aren’t terribly bad for your or for the counting of macros per say. If Morgan Spurlock had counted his macros in “Super Size Me”, he probably wouldn’t have been half dead after his thirty day experiment.
