Eating "clean" is not a useful concept Edit
First of all, there is no definition of what "clean" foods are. For some people, it's a certain list of foods like brown rice and lean chicken breast. For others, it's "not eating McDonald's every day". Both of these ideas are non-sense. Let's examine the claim that McDonald's will make you fat/kill your gains/etc.
Eating McDonald's doesn't mean eating fatty food Edit
You can fit McDonald's meals into a mixed diet. There are plenty of items with a moderate amount of fat that are high in protein.
|Premium Bacon Ranch Salad with Grilled Chicken||9||10||30||230|
|Premium Grilled Chicken Classic Sandwich||8||42||28||350|
|Premium Grilled Chicken Ranch BLT Sandwich||10||42||31||380|
But what about soda? Edit
You don't have to drink soda at McDonald's. And if you do, you can drink diet soda. Now you have no excuse to break your diet by going to McDonald's or any other fast food place.
I only eat whole wheat and brown rice Edit
While whole wheat and brown rice have more nutrients in them than their white counterparts, they're not absorbed by the body. Eating brown rice and whole wheat bread will actually block the body from absorbing certain nutrients like magnesium and calcium.
