7 McDonald’s Hacks for Guilt-Free Fast Food

McDonald’s is by no means the healthiest place to stop for a bite to eat, but sometimes your body just craves a bit of processed comfort food. Reduce your guilt with these 7 simple McDonald’s hacks.

  1. Want fresh food? Ask for no salt fries. This dramatically lowers your daily sodium intake and guarantees your fries will be made fresh. For a fresh sandwich and an automatic reduction in calories, ask for no cheese.
  2. Don’t forget that grownups can order the Happy Meal too! The reasonable portion sizes in a Happy Meal are perfect for anyone trying to lose weight. If you don’t have a child at home, simply tell the staff they can keep the toy.
  3. If you love McDonald’s chicken sandwiches, ask for honey mustard instead of mayo to boost the flavor and cut the calories.
  4. The Filet-O-Fish comes with a steamed bun, which gives it a hot, fluffy, soft appearance. Enhance the taste of your favorite sandwich by asking for a steamed bun as a substitution.
  5. Cut out a few carbs and save yourself a couple of bucks by ordering a low-priced McDouble made to look like a Big Mac. Just hold the ketchup and mustard, add lettuce, and top with Big Mac sauce. It’s just like a Big Mac, minus the third slice of bun and the sesame seeds.
  6. Instead of fries, order a Premium Southwest Salad without the grilled chicken for a side dish that has just 180 calories.
  7. Snack wraps are a great choice when you just need a little something to tide you over till dinner. Choose the grilled honey mustard with no cheese for a solid amount of protein and minimal calories.
