"Medium Size Me"

The other day we were talking about some shockingly unhealthy fast food meals including the “Chicago Classic” at Unos that contains 2,310 calories. It’s worth noting, however, that the reverse also exists. Consider the person, for example, who has an Egg McMuffin for Breakfast, a Big Mac and small fries for lunch, and a Big N’ Tasty With Cheese and medium fries for dinner. That comes out to 1960 calories. According to the Mayo Clinic a 5’9″ 30 year-old man who eats 2000 calories a day can maintain a healthy weight of 150 pounds with a physically inactive lifestyle.

Of course if you switch that up to a Sausage McMuffin, a Double Quarter Pounder With Cheese, and an Angus Delux then it becomes a very different story….
