Over a decade ago, around the time I’d lost over 250 pounds of excess weight and knew I wanted to keep it off forever, I swore off fast food. Sure, it’s cheap. But there’s a higher price to be paid in regard to our health. And this decision turned out to be one of the most positive and healthiest I’ve ever made.
On the subject of fast food (and focusing in on the McDonald’s fast food chain in particular), New York Times best-selling author Vani Hari (AKA “The Food Babe“) recently posted information for “…Everyone That Still Eats at McDonald’s (Even if they won’t admit it)” which features the chart you see here, detailing some concerning ingredients that fast food giant McDonald’s still uses in much of what they sell (and what so many people still consume).
For more information on each of these ingredients, click over to Food Babe’s post, which details what she calls “the worst 12 ingredients at McDonald’s that no one should be eating” — even noting that 8 of these ingredients aren’t even used at the McDonald’s in the United Kingdom. After reading this list, you might be wondering why you are still eating at McDonald’s (if you are), or perhaps, as Ms. Hari suggests, want to share this information with people you know who still eat there.
