How to Eat Healthy at McDonald’s

GENERAL RULES for McDonald's:

* ❌AVOID buns + breads (including wraps, bagels, pancakes, and biscuits)

* ❌ AVOID the fancy McCafe drinks (FULL of sugar!!)

* ❌ AVOID desserts (cookies, pies, other bakery items)

* ❌ AVOID soft drinks

* ✔ Order PLAIN coffee/espresso/latte with real milk/cream + stevia sweetener

* ✔ WATER -always a good choice

* ✔ UNsweetened tea

Here's what you can order at McDonald's and not feel (horribly) guilty about:

1. Breakfast

* Any of the breakfast sandwiches, biscuits,

wraps, or bagels, with NO BREAD,

ask for it IN A BOWL.

>>>Any brewed coffee (including decaf), 

Americano, Premium roast coffee; add milk, 

cream, half n half, and stevia to sweeten.

>>>Iced coffee, cappuccino, latte, iced latte

 are fine, but ask for UNSWEETENED. 

Add your own stevia or zero cal sweetener.

2. Burgers

>>> Burgers from McDonald's--even without

the bread--are so high in calories and fat

that they're not really worth it unless you get

the SMALL burgers (even happy-meal size).

But if you MUST have a burger, follow these guidelines:

*MOST burgers ordered without the bun,



Bacon BBQ Burger

Double Bacon BBQ Burger

Big Mac (because of sauce unless you're dying for one)

3. Chicken

>>> NONE of the chicken nuggets are

recommended bc of zero fiber and

being fried in unhealthy fats, but if you MUST 

have nuggets, either choose:

-4 piece Mcnuggets or

-Buttemilk Crispy Tenders (4 piece)

AND pair with a salad for fiber + vitamins

* GRILLED chicken sandwich with NO BUN,

or ask for it on lettuce with all the veggies + mustard.

4. Salads

>>> Go easy on the dressings, some

can add 300-ish calories in one packet!

Check the packet to confirm.

*Side salad 

*Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad 

*Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad (already has dressing)

5. Sweets
