Healthy Breakfast Choices at McDonalds

There is a good selection of breakfast choices at McDonalds - such as the scrambled eggs and the Apple Cinnamon Walnut Oatmeal.

While the eggs do contain a considerable amount of cholesterol values, they have positive notes, too - like protein gram content which can work to keep you fighting off hunger until lunch time arrives.

Do take care when ordering the 'white egg' items as they can contain more calories than those containing both the white and the yolk.

For example, the 'Bacon, Egg & Cheese Bagel with Egg Whites' contains a whopping 570 calories, 25 grams of total fat, 9 grams of saturated fat, 1480 milligrams of sodium, 55 grams of carbohydrates, 0.5 grams of Trans fat, and 60 - yes 60 milligrams of cholesterol.

Just because a menu item omits the yolk doesn't mean that it's a healthy choice - or low in calories.

The sodium contain alone in this breakfast menu item is over half of the daily recommended high intake level for a healthy adult.

The fat grams exceed those contained in two frosted snack-variety cupcakes. Keep in mind that the Big Mac contains only 2 more grams of saturated fat!

Order Your Hotcakes Without a Side of Sugary Syrup & Margarine/Butter for a Healthier Meal

As to the hotcakes, while they are delicious - they make a good choice but only if you can consume them without added maple syrup and margarine. Even dipping them into a small container makes a healthier choice over the syrup and added fat - in the form of the margarine or butter.

Next Meal is Right Around the Corner

You should enjoy breakfast while dieting because it serves to jump-start your metabolism - but just don't enjoy it too much. Save room for those other meals in your day - like lunch and dinner. Remember those? And oh, those wonderful set snack times.

McDonalds Hotcakes & Sausage contains 61 carb grams.
