    I like McDonalds. Ate it 5 days a week while losing weight just cause it was easy, on my way home from bike rides, and the calorie counts are there to track. I still have it probably once a week now.

    I turned my back on that place so many years ago. I do not like anything they have and don't think I ever will. Any time I've eaten it I've spent the next 2 hours feeling like I swallowed gravel.

    McDonald's is gross and gives me diarrhea. It's a good motivator.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with eating McDonalds if you want it and track it and make it fit in your day. I know people in fantastic shape that finish a burger right before heading into the gym. It's all about planning.

    I hate to admit it, but I loves me some McDonald's!

    Just this last week, I had a monstrous craving for their $1 vanilla cone. Well, now it's over $1. Boo, I say.

    I went through the drive through today and ordered a black coffee and a bag of fruit.... times have certainly changed for me (previously a quarter pounder with cheese girl)

    I actually really like their salads. That is what I get when the family goes there.

    I like their southwest grilled chicken salad. It's yummy enough it doesn't even need dressing. Occasionally, during TOM I get a small fries.

    Just try to think about how angry you are at McDonald's for replacing the ever so delicious Chipotle McBistro grilled chicken sandwich with the not very tasty CBO. I hate when restaurants get rid of my favourite thing. And sheesh, the number of restaurants that have deleted reubens is the WORST.

    I went through the drive through and got my husband two double cheeseburgers and cheese sticks. I didn't get anything for myself. At home he left the cheese sticks on the counter and I ate one. After fiding out it didn't taste nearly as good as I thought, it made me never want to eat it again! I beat myself up about it but I said "hey it was only a cheese stick and not 2 burgers, fries, and a soda!" After that I just don't crave it anymore! Lesson learned! From having no sugar and limited carbs my taste buds have changed dramatically! Just keep healthy stuff ready and in reach!

    Cheese sticks?! At McDonald's?! I need to move.

    This was my thought too.

    +1 What are these magical McDonald's cheese sticks of which you speak?

    I can't remember the last year I had that was not McD free. If offered I'd say 'No, thanks.' If pressed, I'd say 'Seriously, no, that stuff is crap.'.

    I have not had a big mac in years. Close to a decade I think. I used to get them all the time. They are so good.

    Lol! I know. When I saw them my mouth was watering! Believe me though they still don't taste very good. I'd rather have some ballpark cheese sticks! Okay I'll stop, hehe.

    Agreed- I can't remember the last time I had one...or even the last time I had McDonalds

    I only ever go there for ice cream, and I don't even remember when I last had a meal there.
    I used to visit Hesburger (similar to McDonalds) quite often, that was until I found out that the meal I used to have (chicken burger) was over 1000 calories!! I was quite shocked to say the least. I used to have the meal once or twice a week maybe, but now I had one about a month ago and it didn't even taste as good as it used to, so I'm rather glad I got over that habit.

    Hamburger should not be grey after cooking. I rarely order a burger when eating out, let a lone from McD's. The only thing that I have ordered from McD's in the past 3 years has been a cola or ice creame cone.

    It is funny how when you go back and try something ages later, it just doesn't taste good anymore or like you remember it. I bet if you tried something from there now, it wouldn't live up to the memory.

    I don't like McDonald's so it's easy! I've had McDonald's twice in the past 10 years I think, both times when I was pregnant. I think I had a chicken wrap.

    Just say no, or take in something from home. It'll probably be a lot nicer.

    I'm a teacher and I've never seen anyone eat McDonald's in school. Then again, we get half hour for lunch, barely enough time to go for a wee and boil the kettle for a coffee! Maybe things are different in England....
