What Happens To Your Body After Eating A Big Mac, Will Put You Off Mcdonalds

What Happens To Your Body After Eating A Big Mac, Will Put You Off Mcdonalds

An infographic has exploded online which purports to show what happens to your body when you chow down on a Big Mac.

Created by the minds behind the website Fast Food Menu Prince, the infographic breaks the digestion process down into five segments within the first hour after the burger has been consumed. Interesting stuff if you’re a serial consumer of the fast food patty.

One of the claims is that a 540-calorie Big Mac raises your blood sugar levels to “abnormal levels.” On top of that it also claims that the burger’s bun contains high-fructose corn syrup and sodium, which of course is nay good for your system. It also stipulates that the overall Big Mac contains 970 milligrams of sodium, which can dehydrate you so much that it may cause some people to eat more, as the body’s thirst response is sometimes mistaken for hunger.

In an interview with Yahoo! Health about the infographic, dietitian-nutritionist Lisa Moskovitz cautions readers that the immediate effect of consuming a Big Mac varies from person to person, and while the graphic is accurate, it’s “somewhat exaggerated.” “Everyone’s body has a different blood sugar and insulin response,” Moskovitz said.

“Because there is also a significant amount of fat in a Big Mac, it may slow down the conversion of the carbs into glucose that travel through the blood stream.”

If you were under the misapprehension that Big Macs are healthy, then wake up and smell the beef frying – it ain’t good for you. The original post mentions that enjoying a Big Mac on occasion might be okay if diners opt instead for salads and other lower-calorie foods for other meals.

Sensible advice, especially if you want to avoid the horrors this infographic has in store for us burger lovers.
