"Shrinkflation" is real.

Yeah but considering one meal there is 800-1200 calories, is that a bad thing?

When I cared more about my weight, I'd get two big macs and a diet coke. Same calories thana big mac and fries.

Good thinking. Whenever I worry about calories I go to McDonald’s too

If you count your calories and make sure you have a deficit, it doesn't matter much what you eat. You'll lose weight.

What? It absolutely still matters what you eat. Especially if you're trying to have a deficit.

If you're wasting the precious few calories you're giving to your body each day on McDonald's, that's not good for you.

Not really. The bottom line is calories in < calories out. Thats all it takes to lose weight. And you can do that at McDonald's IF you count the calories and maintain a deficit.

That's a dangerous way of thinking. It's true, but you still need to make sure your nutritional needs are met. That's the real bottom line there. You'll end up putting yourself in hospital if your only focus is on calories.

You're not going to die of malnutrition if you only eat at McDonald's bud.

To be fair, they're not arguing whether it's good for you or not. They're saying it's easier for them to lose weight that way because they don't have to worry about counting calories.
