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"

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.

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.
