Living in a country that’s fueled by the simplicity of instant gratification, snagging a big greasy fast food burger jam-packed with deliciousness is a fairly normal past time. And what better way to get your fix than to head on over to McDonald’s and get yourself a Big Mac, right? Wrong… unless you’re cool with having your insides turn to mush. These stats released by Fast Food Price will have you skipping the drive-thru window.
When McDonald’s coined the slogan for their infamous Big Mac burger as “Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, and a sesame seed bun” in 1975, there’s a fairly good chance that they had no idea that a simple sandwich would quickly become a household name. But while just about everyone has given the Big Mac a try, they probably had zero clue as to what they were doing to their body in the process.
Fast Food Price, a website dedicated to providing the prices of food on various restaurant menu’s, recently exposed what happens to your body an hour after devouring a Big Mac. Between raising your blood sugar to disgustingly high levels, and pointing out that it takes nearly 51 days to digest all of the fat in one Big Mac burger, these guys may assist you in taking a pass on that next Big Mac craving.
Check out their full findings below. Sorry, not sorry – the truth was bound to come out eventually.
