McDonald’s is Proving Size Does Matter

Is the Big Mac not big enough for you?

McDonald’s has announced their new Grand Mac. It has two bigger 100% beef patties, weighing in at 1/3 pound, plus two larger sesame buns.

But with larger size means more calories. The Grand Mac packs in 890 calories, 350 more calories than the original. This also means more saturated fat, the most dangerous kind. Too much saturated fat has been linked to obesity and high cholesterol levels.

For those who want to downsize, there’s now the Mac Jr. a single-patty smaller version of the original burger.
