McDonald's is sexy

So, it really perturbs me when people sit around and complain about how bad McDonald's is for you, when the majority of restaurants you eat out at on a regular basis are equally as bad. Don't believe me? Let's compare. (I'm doing Chili's and Applebee's just because I think most people have gotten a lot of different things from their menus.)

We'll start with the salad.
McDonald's: Premium Southwest Crispy Chicken Salad-430 cal, 20 g of fat
Chili's: Southwest Cobb Salad-1080 cal, 70 g of fat (that wasn't even the worst salad)
Applebee's: Low-fat Asian Chicken Salad (obviously not low in calories)-714 cal, 9 g of fat

McDonald's (plus fries since that's usually what you get with a meal from the other two): Big Mac + small fry-770 cal, 40 g of fat
Chili's: JalapeƱo Smokehouse Bacon Big Mouth Burger-1692 cal, 120 g of fat
Applebee's: Brewtus Burger-1274 cal, 83.2 g of fat

McDonald's: McFlurry w/ M&Ms (12 fl. oz.)-620 cal, 20 g of fat
Chili's: Molten Chocolate Cake-1150 cal, 60 g of fat
Applebee's: Triple Chocolate Meltdown-726 cal, 31 g of fat

I could go on and on but that's all I'm going to do for now. If you want more nutrition information for these restuarants you can use the sites that I used:

..I think it might be a good idea to start looking up this stuff before you go out to eat. It's kinda nasty.


PS- This is for Selene. The only reason you wouldn't put your two weeks notice in would be if that guy tried to molest you in the bathroom. Then you'd just walk out.

okkkk that is all.
