Soo here my situation. I work and go to college at the same time which leaves me around $150-$200 a month for my food budget. I also work at McDonalds if you havent figured it out, which give me 50% off their food. I really dont wnat to eat at mcdonalds everyday but since i dont have much cash i eat lunch there.
I usually buy 2 McDoubles with ketchup, red onion, leaflettuce, and tomato along with a small vanilla shake. I went to mcdonalds.ca and see the nutrition.
48 grams of fat
162 grams of carbs
53 grams of protien
2100mg of sodium
my question is; is it relatively healthy to eat this everyday if not everyother day?
i also eat lot of fruits and when i cook its usually chicken breast and salmon with potateos and veggies.
>but since i dont have much cash i eat lunch there
For fuck's sake buy a loaf of bread and some lunch meat and make a goddamn sandwich if you're broke. Fast food even at 50% off is still stupidly expensive.
yeah i forgot to add that part.
my routines pretty basic
two days in a row then 1 day break and then it cycles on and on. i devided it to upper and lower body. each exercise i do 3 sets, first set is 10 reps, second set is 8 reps, and third is 6 reps. i add 10 pounds to every set; so if the first set is 50 then the second is 60 and third is 70.
for upper body day i work out my:
lower body is:
-inner thigh (forgot the muscle name)
-outer thigh (again forgetting the name)
i also do a 10 minute run before working out: i set it to a small incline and try to reach 10 mins on 8mph
But the fucking grilled chicken you fucknut. Your shitty mc chicken and mcdoubles are not only give you a heart attack if you ever decide to go on heat but they also have shit protein compared to the obvious choice which is GRILLED FUCKING CHICKEN.
Australian and I have a $50 a week budget for food.
I also work at maccas.
I used get hot cakes, an English brekkie wrap or a mchamp depending on the time of day I'm working (usually an opener). So one of those 5 times a week.
Outside of that I just use foods that are cheap and high in calories. I eat a lot of brown rice, chicken, pasta and cheap mince.
hey, anon. are you sure all that food comes out to only be 53g of protein? maybe look into getting the double quarter pounder since that only is about 50 grams of protein right there with 760 or so calories.
McDonalds charges their employees 50% off their food. Wtf I thought it'd be free. Every where that I've worked that's sells food (restaurant, breakfast place) would give their employees free food. You just ask the cook what you want and they cook it up.
i do eat grilled chicken, i usually get the mcbistro sw grilled but since its getting phased out im looking for other alternatives. i saw a thread similar to this and a guy suggest the mcdoubles soo started to eat mcdoubles (adding the other stuff like red onions, etc..)
i dont get why theyre getting rid of the mcbistro, shits good. and now were gettign summ shitty chicken bacon onion.
Used to be that way got one free meal on break, the higher priced ones were out but anything else. I wanna say 09ish policy changed on the corporate side and instead it was half off. Idk about franchise ones, they only follow certain guidelines.
Most people at McDonald's steal a snack and a couple of drinks in their normal workday.
i used to work at mc'd's when i was a student, 20years old.
>busting my ass off at school
>after school working at mcd's carrying hundreds of tables and chairs , pulling grilles, general cleaning, sweat dripping
>party all night with the girls from the store
>chubby, i thought at least i'll lose some pounds with all this work
>1 free meal every day at break
>never lost a pound
their fuckin food is the stuff of fat
doesn't happen bro, nice bro science. the selenium in tuna binds to mercury which renders it indigestible to humans. try reading the momscience you're putting so much faith into before ripping it out as fact.
i can confirm this.
worked at mc donalds in germany when i was 16 (part time) and the job was so much bullshit and the money was so fucking low that i had to steal food just to feel like ive gotten payd fair.
I usually stole arround 20mc nuggets and a big tasty bacon on a regular basis.
That sucks OP. When I worked at McDick's they always let me take whatever. Lunch break was usually a mcdouble, spicy chicken, chicken breast and a cup of water. Manager even let me take a couple bags of frozen chicken breast that were past the expiration date.
