My favorite burger lost....the answer!
Oh my, the burger I eat on the road ALL the time! wow...
The Big Mac is, well, big--but it still has fewer calories than a Whopper. The Big Mac weighs in at 560 calories and 30 grams of fat (with 10 grams of artery-clogging saturated fat). Obviously, it's not a "diet" food. The Whopper, however, is even worse: 670 calories, 39 grams of fat, and 11 grams of saturated fat. Want to make either one healthier? Skip the cheese and special Big Mac sauce, and you'll take in only 420 calories and 17 grams of fat. When it comes to the Whopper, simply losing the mayo will save you 160 calories and 17 grams of fat (bringing it down to a healthier 510 calories and 22 grams of fat). Who says fast food has to be fat food?
