    Yes. It means the whole salad! :) Good Luck!

    Yes, I believe it does mean the whole salad. You might want to double check the number of servings that are in the dressing pack, however. Sometimes the package contains 2 servings.

    Great choice!

    I looked at McDonald's website and you are right....the salad is 260 for the entire salad (it is one serving). However, the ranch dressing appears to be 170 cals for the packet.....next time you have it, check the packet to see if it says it is one serving

    Steve,

    I also have a hip, knee and back injury. They are old injuries, and I'm pretty sure the hip will need surgery in the future. So I know about working through the pain. Moving seems to help. The eliptical spares my back and knee, but the hip suffers. Walking spares the hip, but the knee suffers.

    Good luck!

    Steve,
    Have you tried working your arms with dumbbells? You can keep the strain off your back sitting in a chair, and do presses laying on the floor or a bench.

    Start off easy, like 5 pounders, to get your joints used to it. I have been at it for a month, and am ready to up the weight.

    Go Steve Go!

    If you have access to a pool, that might be good for you too!

    The grilled chicken wraps are also great at McDonalds if you get bored with the salad. ;-) Keep up the good work!
