Have you ever tried it? Many have this bias against McDonald's until they at least try it just about everything on the breakfast menu is great.

I don't think fast food has that much to do with obesity rates. IMO it has much more to do with the activity level of the individual. I'm an extremely extremely active individual, whenever I go anywhere I get whatever has the most calories as I will burn them off people like me thrive off of the availability of high caloric food . If you wanna know what I mean just google what Olympic swimmers eat, and hint they eat nothing healthy!!

I’m sorry but McDonald’s breakfast is NASTY, actually not just the breakfast, EVERYTHING about McDonald’s is DISGUSTING. And that goes for all fast food joints not just McD’s.

I would rather stay skinny and starve than eat any type of fast food

That is what my mother would "cook" for dinner quite often, along with the other burger places like BK Steak house. I choose not to eat at them any more.

A McD's sausage biscuit is a buck. For some reason, I find their greasy, fatty sausage patty to be delicious. I'll sometimes sneak one in the mornings with spare change. It's not healthy, but it tastes good.

A couple weeks ago, I headed out to McD's from the office and got a big breakfast with hotcakes/sausage. I threw the biscuit away, ate the hash brown on the way back, and ate the hotcakes/eggs/sausage at the office. It was better than any fast food breakfast I've had in awhile, and only $6 or so with a Diet Coke.

Anyone else fond of a McD's breakfast?
I've actually used them to help me lose weight.

Each day I'd get two side orders of scrambled eggs and two side orders of sausage. I'd just have water to drink.

That's a zero carb breakfast for about $6.

The result: I was never hungry until lunch and I was able to lose 2 pounds per week.

Yes, I am also occasionally doing a post breakfast snack at McDonalds when I am out running errands. I look forward to it. The 1-2-3 dollar menu offers value if you know how to use it..

Just want to add - did BK a few weeks ago. Not thrilled. McDonalds owns breakfast in my neck of the woods.

Don't forget the senior coffee..

If for some reason I am not able to have breakfast at home before going on my morning commute, I'll have a fast food breakfast. This occurs about once a month or so.

I have noticed that the McDonald's on my way to work have long lines for the drive thru window. If I go to Burger King, the line is much shorter. Because of this, I will go to Burger King instead of McDonald's for breakfast, where food quality and prices are similar. I would perceive the food quality of McDonald's breakfasts to be above Burger King's. However, I'm not willing to wait in a long line at McDonald's for that difference in quality on a weekday morning when I am rushing to get to work.

Almost every other fast food joint on my way to work has shorter lines that McDonald's.

McDonald's Sausage Biscuits and Sausage McMuffins are good.

Their biscuits are pretty greasy. I get a Big Breakfast a few times a year, but I always feel like I’ve gained 5lbs by the time I get up from the table.

Bagel with folded egg(not the fried one) and country/sugarcured/whatever one calls it ham with hash brown. Very good together.

The studies I've seen show fast food has nothing to do with obesity. I'm not going to look for links, but consider that sit-down restaurants serve bigger portions than fast food joints. And you don't have to go out to eat to get fat--my mother was obese and we rarely at out. The book Why We Get Fat shows several obese people, typical of their area, who lived nowhere near a restaurant.

Eating fast food won't necessarily make you fat. An independent film called Fat Head is by a guy who went on a fast-food diet for 30 days, kept his carbs to 100 per day, and lost 12 pounds.

That said, the service at the McDonald's near my house is so bad that it's quicker for me to make sausage, an egg and a cup of coffee at home than it is to go a few blocks and wait on their food.
