      For ex: eating a big mac you feel full and satisfied, but you get hungry in another 30 minutes later and feel like ch*t where as if you had brown rice, grilled chicken, and brocolli you'd feel full for a while

      The first question to ask yourself is: what's the difference between the meat in a Big Mac and the ground meat that is Grade A 100% beef that you purchase from your local supermarket?

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe all the sodium/saturated fats/additives? Not too sure, I know you're like the Nutrition King, so enlighten me (srs)

      The meat used in a Big Mac is identical to the USDA Grade A ground beef sold in most supermarkets. There are no additives and they cook the meat without using any added oil or fat.

      Care to try again?

      Where does all the sodium come from?

      A Big Mac contains about 1,000 mg of sodium, much of which is in the condiments.

      By the way, a 16 ounce glass of the most popular vegetable juice sold in the States contains about the same amount of sodium as a Big Mac.*

      ----------------
      * 16 ounces of V8 vegetable juice contains ~960 mg of sodium.

      So fast food isn't bad for you at all, it's just about how much you eat it?

      What I'm saying is that you have to look at your entire diet and decide what levels of nutrients you want to consume per day and what types of chemicals you want to limit or eliminate from your diet.

      Simply vilifying "fast food" for illogical reasons makes no sense.

      And that's my point, which is express visually by the following (posted earlier by BBQChicken1):
