This Is What You Should Order at Maccas to Be Fit
Fitness expert and Muscle Food ambassador, Dan Rayner has revealed ways to stay fit but still enjoy your favourite fast food joints!
‘First glance at a fast food menu and you expect them to be packed with calories, full of fat and a big no if you’re watching what you eat,’ says Dan Rayner.
‘Look a little closer and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. My recommendations include meals with high protein contents, which are perfect for those who count their macros.
‘Of course, there are healthier options out there, but sometimes you do need to grab and eat on the go and if you’re in a rush, a fast food outlet is the obvious choice.
‘I wouldn’t recommend it every day, but once in a while and making some wise food choices will do you no harm.’
Here are just a few suggestions of what you can order on the Maccas menu!
Breakfast: Oats or egg and cheese McMuffin and a bag of fruit
McDonald’s oats are a decent choice from the breakfast menu, with 194 calories and packed with 10 grams of protein.
For a higher protein breakfast, order an egg and cheese McMuffin. To make it healthier, ask for no cheese, and take away one slice of the muffin.
By making these small changes, you have reduced your entire meal by around 100 calories, as well as getting in around 14 grams of protein. For some natural sugars, add a melon fruit bag.
Main: Chicken and bacon salad
A very healthy option with just 184 calories and 24 grams of protein.
McChicken sandwich/Filet-o-fish burger
A McChicken sandwich has 388 calories and 17 grams of protein, it’s a leaner meat choice and one of the lowest calorie options out of all the burgers with a good amount of protein.
If you like fish, a Filet-o-Fish burger comes in at 329 calories and 15 grams of protein.
Beverage: Coke Zero
Choose a zero-calorie diet drink, black coffee or water to keep the calories intact and sugar down.
