Everyone – even Kim Kardashian – loves a McDonald’s burger
The Fast Food Menu Price has produced an info graphic claiming to show McDonald’s customers what they can expect after they chow down on one of the chain’s most popular products: a Big Mac.
The double burger, triple bun and burger sauce combination has been a favourite for many thousands of Britons since it was first invented back in 1967.
This infographic shows what the FFMP claim happens to your body when you eat a McDonald’s
The Big Mac is a popular choice for consumers on the high street
The Big Mac releases a certain set of ‘feel good’ chemicals which they compare to taking drugs like cocaine.
After 20 minutes, they claim your body is craving more and more of the fructose corn syrup found in the burger bun.
A casual 30 minutes after consuming the treat, they go onto claim 970 milligrams of sodium (salt) will dehydrate you. According to the FFMP this is easily mistaken for hunger, making customers think they want another burger.
One whole hour after a McDonald’s Big Mac, the FFMP claims digestion has slowed down to a record halt.
In fact, it even says it could take you three days to fully digest a Big Mac in comparison to the usual 24 hour digestion route.
Healthy advicer spoke to a representative for McDonald’s, who said: “We do not recognise the ingredients or nutritional information within this graphic. The so-called facts in this image are misleading and bear no resemblance to the Big Mac available to customers in the UK.
They added: “We have removed all artificial trans-fat from our menu, the iconic Big Mac contains no artificial colours or flavours and the bun does not contain any corn syrup.
“For over 10 years we have been evolving our recipes to reduce salt and sugar, reducing the sugar content of our Big Mac by more than 22%. We would encourage our customers to visit the accurate nutritional information section available on our website or mobile phone app to help them make informed choices about their food.”
Will you be eating a Big Mac after these claims?
