Sure, this sandwich contains quite a few carbohydrate grams - and with the special sauce it holds 500 kcals, 75 milligrams of cholesterol and close to 1,000 milligrams of sodium - but even the Big Mac can fit into a healthy eating plan.
By cutting the sauce, we'll trim a few kcals and carbohydrates (about 4 grams) but in the process we'll lose the original flavors of the sandwich.
We're not saying that everyone should run to McDonalds and order this every day for the rest of their life - but think about this....
One day, you're going to be through with your weight loss plan.
If you're intent on never enjoying another slice of pizza - or another piece of bread hot out of the oven with butter and jam smeared on, then you may feel much differently when the hungries hit and your plan has ended.
Fact it - it's past time to get real and in the real world, people like to eat the foods that they enjoy - like the Big Mac. And when they do such in moderation, they can also do such without experiencing weight gain.
