Ten nutritionists detailed what they would order from McDonald’s, in a recent article.

  1. Regular burger with a side salad (swapping fries out for side salad, with a low fat vinaigrette dressing) (around 260 calories)
  2. Sweet chili chicken wrap (grilled), apple slices and a side salad (around 450-550 calories)
  3. Four-piece chicken nugget, small fries, apples and a go-gurt (around 638 calories)
  4. Premium southwest salad (no chicken), Mccafe latte and cuties (350 calories and vegetarian)
  5. Fruit and maple oatmeal, without the brown sugar (getting the sugar adds 8 teaspoons. Around 280 calories for meal)
  6. Fries and a small chocolate shake (around 790 calories) (Because “I’d rather get a healthy meal I could savor later, and something quick and enjoyable now.”)
  7. Bacon ranch salad with grilled chicken, with half of the dressing (around 300 calories)
  8. Premium southwest salad with grilled chicken (320 calories)
  9. Premium McWrap southwest –grilled (500 calorie)
  10. Southwest salad without chicken (under 300 calories)

Most nutritionists probably avoid fast food, but hey, any number of things can pull you towards the Golden Arches; preference, road trip, convenience.
