    Default No wonder we are fat!

    I just came across this picture on Facebook on a so called " nutritionist " page. I was gobsmacked. In a country where obesity is an epedemic to promote McDonalds as a healthier option because of the carb content is misleading and stupid and irresponsible. No mention of the sugar or saturated fat content of a cheeseburger! Seems lots of people believe this crap reading the comments. Posted underneath was this


    " Anna's Low Carb Kitchen

    How crazy is this..... Yet another example of "Healthy Food" that actually has more Carbs than "UnHealthy Food" Yes you can argue that Sushi has Tuna & Cucumber in, but the majority of it is rice - which is super high in Carbs. 
    If you are trying to lose weight or reduce carbs to increase your energy - the best lunches you can have should include ‪#‎protein‬ & ‪#‎greens‬.
    This can be in the form of a salad OR you can opt for a Sandwich but on ‪#‎flattummybread‬ as it is ‪#‎superlowcarb‬ ‪#‎glutenfree‬  and ‪#‎bloatfree"

    Opinions?

    Ummm is tuna not protein? Where is the greens on the burger? Pickles?

    I dislike it a lot as well. There is so much focus on 'carbs are bad'. No they are not. In moderation for most people they are ok.

    The salt/sugar/preservatives are far worse.

    Besides, sushi tastes better

    I don't read that as promoting the cheeseburger. To me, that says that we think the sushi is healthy, but if you look at the carb content, it's actually worse than a cheeseburger. I personally do really poorly eating grains and sugar, so sushi is out for me (as is the cheeseburger lol).

    I think this explains it better - I just read her bio on her website:


    when Anna moved to Sydney, she fell seamlessly into a hospitality career with McDonalds.

    Anna fell in love with the high standards, processes, competitive environment and energetic spirit of McDonalds.

    Wow. And it doesn't refer to her having any formal qualifications in nutrition and dietetics. Well that is apart from the McDonald's leadership program!

    I suspect you've stumbled upon guerrilla marketing ...

    A large portion of the world eat rice with most meals and are the slimmest people in the world. Introduce a western diet and they gain weight. Funny that...

    Not to mention there is not one known allergy to rice, ever, in any country.
    Wow, that's some dodgy marketing right there.
