How My McDonald's Breakfast Made Me Guilty

One morning, I went to McDonald's to buy breakfast. I usually have breakfast at home, but after a long shuttle ride, I would sometimes feel hungry again.

I ordered my favorite: Sausage and Egg Muffin, Hash Brown, and Brewed Coffee.

As I was waiting for my orders, I took a leaflet which I thought was a delivery menu (I try to collect the menu from different restaurants). It turned out to be the McDonald's Nutrition Information.

After finishing my breakfast, I read the leaflet and to see how many calories my breakfast has. And this is what I saw:

Hash Brown: 320 Calories
Sausage & Egg Muffin: 390 Calories

That's 710 calories on just breakfast. And I'm not even counting the calories from brewed coffee. It made me very guilty that I lost my appetite for lunch.

Given that, I would like to share with you the calories from other McDonald's favorites:

6 pc McNuggets: 320 Calories
Hamburger: 240 Calories
Cheeseburger: 420 Calories
Quarter Pounder with Cheese: 560 Calories
Big Mac: 510 Calories
Crispy Chicken Fillet Sandwich: 400 Calories
Chicken McDo: 310 Calories
Crispy Chicken Fillet with Rice: 450 Calories
McSpaghetti: 270 Calories
Hot Fudge/Hot Caramel Sundae: 270 Calories
Regular Fries: 210 Calories
Medium Fries: 310 Calories
Large Fries: 490 Calories
Regular Coke: 140 Calories
Medium Coke: 190 Calories
Large Coke: 260 Calories

Let's try to do some math and let's compute my favorite McDonald's lunch:

6 pc McNuggets, Medium Fries and Medium Coke
320 + 310 + 190 = 820 Calories

If I was craving for dessert, I would usually add a Hot Fudge Sundae:
so 820 + 270 = 1090 Calories

That's more than enough to make me feel guilty. :(

How about you? What's your usual McDonald's meal? What're the total calories from your meal?


  1. Mine is 1,250 calories.

    Cheeseburger, Medium Fries, Large Coke and Sundae
    420 + 310 + 260 + 270.

    Yun itnatakbo ko sa treadmill for 45 mins 300 calories lang bawas. Shoot!

  2. Not enough right? Ako nga around 500 calories yung circuit training ko. Weakling pa din yung exercise ko.hahaha.

  3. I love Big Mac! But I have to curb my craving... not just because of the calories but I also have to limit my cholesterol intake :(
    Thanks for posting the caloric content of our McFavorites :)

  4. Hi madmader! You're welcome. :) Yeah, you really have to avoid eating Big Mac, it has 27g of fat. :(

  5. Whoa! Is this for real? Now I lost my appetite too. =(

  6. what calories?hahahaha! Well, sometimes it's not so bad to load yourself with too much calories (sige idedefend ko talaga to;p)

  7. it's not so bad. but have you watched "Supersize Me"?haha! :)

  8. Cheeseburger, Large Fries, and Large Coke!

    Oh, wait, why am I computing? Accounting will never invade my eating habits. Never! Hahaha!

  10. @michy: not yet. Haha but still, control na lang din ang best option dyan;p

  11. You should watch it. Yeah, we should "regulate" our cravings for fastfood.haha. :)

  12. what surprised me here is that a small piece of chicken fillet (and one of the cheapest on their menu) has more calories than a cheeseburger, it might be because of the rice?

  13. That's what you call guilty pleasure hehe I still love McDo at masarap talaga kumain hehe... :)

    Advanced happy birthday to us Miss Michy! :)
