Lazy Sunday Lunch
So hands up those who have ever had a Big Mac that actually looks like the advertising menu. Anyone? No one?
I actually used to work for McDonald's when I was a young one for about 5 and a half years and even when I cooked a Big Mac for myself with much care and attention to detail I still couldn't make it look like the advertising photos — hence the power and illusion of advertising aka Photoshop and Food Stylist. As I'm sure most of you know the celebrities are also reliant on having their photos retouched too — no wonder we have so many self-esteem problems in our society. And now that my Big Mac has provided 44% of my daily saturated fat intake along with 50% of my protein and 42% of my sodium I think I'll go for a nanna nap while my sugar rush subsides to normal levels.
PROS: Cheap, Quick, Easy, Childhood memories
CONS: Waistline, High in saturated fat and sugar
MUST TRY: Not eating it too often
The way it will never look when you get one
Reality – Big Mac and French Fries.
% Daily intake — I'm now halfway through my protein for the day.
Before and after photoshop — if only magazines showed the truth.
