If you were to follow a McDonald's diet, there are plenty of more healthful options on the menu that just burgers and fries. A Honey Mustard Snack Wrap with Grilled Chicken will set you back just 260 calories and 9 grams of fat. The Southwest Salad with Grilled Chicken comes in at 320 calories and 9 grams of fat, while the fruit 'n yogurt parfait has just 160 calories and 2 grams of fat.
So although there are some healthy choices, the notion of a McDonald's diet still raises a red flag for many health experts. It may sound enticing yet nutrition experts aren't buying it.
Registered dietitian Dawn Jackson Blatner says that while a McDonald's-only diet might help take off the pounds -- it won't keep them off. There's not enough variation to stick to the diet long-term.
