McDonald's at Olympics is the biggest

Jun 26, 2012 Full story: KXAN-TV Austin 65

The fast-food giant, a top Olympics sponsor with exclusive rights to sell branded food products inside the venue, said Monday its two-story restaurant at the games will be its biggest and busiest in the world, seating 1,500 diners and serving up to 14,000 people a day.

Leave in the Caesar dressing. If you wanted a plain salad, spend the same amount of money at Costco to buy 2 bags of romaine lettuce.
The whole idea if someone's dieting is to cut down on the calories from whatever source they come, so if a salad is substituted for Big Woppers and super-sized fries, then it's rather pointless to load it up with the most artery clogging dressing on the planet.
Instead they can buy your romaine lettuce from Costco add a vinaigrette dressing and whatever else lo-cal goes in salads. Sorry to be a harbinger of disappointment, but that's just how it is.

You go to a restaurant to eat what you want to eat.

If someone were to be on a "diet", they wouldn't be at a McDonald. Fat doesn't clog arteries. Extra carbohydrates that turn fat does.
Fat is the number one source of energy, it gets digested first. That's the reason why people get so tired after a big greasy meal. The bun makes you gain weight more than the meat and cheese.

You do make an convincing argument for the plain Costco lettuce leaf, lol.
I agree, but eating fat in any form must have a detrimental affect on the health, not to mention the appearance of ones bodily appearance.
Unfortunately for most of us, the flavour is in the fat, and that in my case at least, creates an addiction to certain foods, but luckily for me I have a powerful control factor in my favour, it's called a wife.

Eating fat does not make you fat or clog your arteries. They are the first form of energy to be metabolized.

Eating excessive carbohydrates on the other hand, gets turned into the fat that you store in your body.

Healthy:
Meat, fish, butter, eggs, vegetables that grow above the ground, and natural fats.

Unhealthy:
Bread, pasta, potatoes, rice, sugar, starchy foods

Humans were designed to eat this way.

Last time that I went into a McDonald's, I don't remember ever seeing someone with a gun to their head ordering 6 Big Macs and a couple Super Size fries (which you can't even get anymore, thanks to fatass libs like Ted Kennedy).

Can't people be held responsible anymore for THEIR OWN ACTIONS???

WTF?????

I don't hear any mention whatsoever of the appalling
conditions which the ANIMALS are reared and treated,
which McDonalds use in their food production.
Chickens are given hormones to speed up weight gain
causing severe problems with their legs, that is, when
they actually have the room to move around as they
kept in battery cages. In many instances they are conscious when their throats are cut.
Sows which produce the pigs for slaughter for McDonalds
are kept in stalls forever producing but unable to move, spending a life time giving birth and suckling their young in cramped conditions.
Cows are jammed in byres with no regard to their well being, just cram as many in as is possible, give them hormones, feed them on pesticide treated grain.
People have a choice, if they want to eat unhealthy food 24/7 that is up to them, but the animals do not have a choice, which is why I avoid McDonalds like the plague.

Ted Kennedy is a fraud. Anytime you do a study like that, you need a record of every meal. However no such record exists. If anyone bothered to count up the calories he ate in a day, he didn't nearly exceed his required daily intake to keep the same weight. A person did the same exact study, WITH a food diary. He ended up losing weight.

Remember the part where he asked where's the chicken in a chicken mcnugget? Well, where's the pork in a sausage? Same concept.

Do you avoid foster farms too? The meat in your super market probably had the same fate too. Better go vegetarian. But wait, most crops are genetically modified and covered in pesticides. Better go organic !

I think there is a ban on the growing and the sale of genetically modified foods in the EU, but you're right on the 'covered in pesticides' bit.
I'd be more concerned about eating pesticides than GM foods, however on the moral standpoint GM crops are putting a monopoly in the hands of one or two huge corporations that profit from Farmers that have to continually purchase seed and pesticide from the same company, making them dependent upon that company.

Since you ask...:) I do not buy meat from the supermarket, I buy from one source which deals with farmers who do not use pesticides on their farms,
whose chickens are reared in the best of conditions, and whose vegetables
are grown in the most responsible way, their website provides videos of
the farmers, their backgrounds, usually they learned their craft from their own parents and grandparents and so on, and one can view their farms and housing of their stock. My milk is not homogenised and is organic as is
any fruit I buy from the supermarket, if not organic, then I choose Fairtrade as I have no wish to eat at the expense of little children who are used to implement the family earnings by working all the hours God sends to help their parents eke a living, Fairtrade means they will get a fairer price.
But thanks for the advice.

Chickens in the U.S. are not fed hormones.

Cows (sic), I believe you meant cattle, are not jammed into byres in the U.S. We don't have byres.

In just over 7 weeks it will have been three years since Ted Kennedy's last drink.

You forgot about the $55.00 annual membership for Costco. You can still buy cheap at a Super Wal-Mart or Super Target. The ones that have the supermarket in the store.

I don't know if you have them where you live, but we have Sweet Tomatoes salad bar restaurants by me. I try to go when I have a coupon. There is a giant salad bar with lots of different greens - romaine, iceberg, field greens - as well as some pre-mixed salads - Caesar, Chinese Won-Ton are staples. They also have a 3rd salad that changes monthly. The rest of the bar has assorted toppings - beets, peas, corn, celery, shredded cheese, hard-boiled eggs - just too many to mention. They have some toppings that they charge extra for, if you take them. Inside they feature a pasta bar w/3 different pastas, a soup bar w/8 soups - chili included and a bread bar. A lot of healthy (and some no so healthy) food to fill up on for a fairly reasonable price. It is all-you-can-eat. Not all you can eat then fill up your purse with extra. I hate people that do that and I will, and have, point out those folk to management.

Lol, I can see the visual now, as she fills her handbag with hot chilli con carne.
Actually I remember years ago when 'all-you-can-eat' salad bars were first introduced to the UK, I went into a pizza place that had such a bar, and was told to take a plate and fill it as much as I wanted, but only for one trip.
I got into a short conversation with the server, who said he'd seen people go to the salad bar with their plate, and proceed to layer lettuce leafs from the plate to their elbow before piling on various salad items - I couldn't believe what I was hearing, so Gail I believe what you are saying.
Some people are just pigs when free food is involved.

Hi June. The all-you-can-eat buffets here are not limited to 1 trip. They do want people to take fresh plates when they go back for more and they do request that you not take more than you can eat.

I don't see the logic in all-you-can-eat but only 1 trip to the salad bar. That's not true all-you-can-eat. It's just including salad bar with your pizza.

Sometimes the more I see of people, the more I appreciate my dog & cat. LOL!!
