McDonald's Cheeseburger Calories
With their ever-evolving menu, McDonald's has successfully launched a wide variety of fast food to suit everyone, from a MCD lover to someone who treats McDonald's as a mischance during a long road trip with no other eatery option. By altering its calorie-laden fast-food menu, McDonald's is now phasing in healthier menu options like green leafy salads, whole wheat wraps, and oatmeal with fruits. McDonald's has taken initiatives in making healthier choices in the kids' menu, and has replaced margarine with butter in its McMuffins. Even the public has acknowledged and accepted such positive changes to the McDonald's menu.
No matter where you eat, making healthy eating choices is the key to healthy living. The cheeseburger has a reputation of being one of the most calorie and saturated fat-laden fast-food choices there is as it uses beef patties and processed American cheese. As per the McDonald's Nutrition Calculator, a cheeseburger has 300 calories while a double cheeseburger, which claims to be both meatier and cheesier, has 430 calories. Even if you are following a 2000 calories-a-day diet, a one-time meal consisting of a cheeseburger or double cheeseburger is still within the required limits - provided you are leading an active lifestyle.
