That awkward moment when your “healthy” $6.50 lunch is essentially the same calories as a McDonald’s 🤭⠀⠀
If there’s one thing most office workers are guilty of – it’s going out to buy lunch. Now as an office worker myself, I get it. At the very least it’s a reason to get away from your desk for a bit.⠀

Because of that, and the popularisation of health culture, most places now offer “healthy options” such as to one shown above. A “healthy” meal deal that proves really popular with people.⠀⠀
That’s all well and good – and I’m happy to see people at least trying to make the better choice. But this combo is actually 50 calories more than a small Big Mac meal with a diet drink 🤷🏼‍♂️⠀⠀
Now of course people are going to take this that I’m saying McDonald’s is an option you should consider for lunch. Which, in part it is because at the end of the day one McDonald’s on occasion (when it’s within your plan) isn’t going to make a big difference. ⠀

But the point, in fact, is to highlight that the “healthy” option you see advertised isn’t always that much better.⁣⠀⠀
Many of you would recoil at the idea of eating a Big Mac meal every day for lunch, but would happily eat this “healthy” sandwich deal without thinking twice. ⁣⠀⠀
You should always be mindful of not just the quality of the foods you’re putting in your body – but the quantity of food you’re putting in. Yes, the smoothie is offering you more nutrition than the diet coke, but it’s also adding 207 calories. ⁣⠀⠀
If weight loss is the goal, calories always have to factor into your thinking!⠀
