    Nutritionists Give Thumbs Up to Big Mac?

    PARIS (Reuters) - Want to stay fit and healthy? Two top French nutritionists are telling people to go for a Big Mac and keep their fingers off the traditional French quiche.

    In an unexpected message to a country priding itself on the superiority of its food, a new food guide praises the McDonald's burger for having a higher and healthier protein-to-fat ratio than France's Quiche Lorraine.


    "Strangely enough, the products which are the most demonized are not necessarily the worst," Jean-Michel Cohen and Patrick Serog write in their book "Savoir Manger," in which they analyze 5,000 dishes available in shops and restaurants.


    The verdict published this month comes as McDonald's launches a new campaign to add healthier food choices to its menus. It has also said it is eliminating Supersize fries and soft drinks.

    Equivalent to eating a sponge with some ketchup and unidentified cucumbers.

    I've read a study a couple of years ago that eating chocolate daily prevents from caries, the study was later found out to be financed by producers of M&M and Mars bars.

    True. The products of McDonald's are probably the best-analyzed in the world.

    A Big Mac has 505 kcal, 26.1% protein, 25.7% fat and 42.2% carbs. Even better is the Quarterpounder Deluxe: 561 kcal, 28.8% protein, 34.2% fat, 34.5 carbs. That's almost perfectly in the zone (30/40/30). Great during mass phase after workout.

    The vikings sayd - fátt es svo gott at galli né fylgi - or few things are so good that a fault not follows. It's like that with many things. Dairy products will make your bones strong but they may as well result in nasal congestion and increased snoring.
    the characters do not make the genus, but the genus gives the characters -- Linnaeus
