Tell Us: Does McDonald's Calorie Announcement Change Your Mind?

McDonald's will post calorie information starting Monday.

Is ignorance bliss? 

McDonald's restaurants in the U.S. will soon get a new menu addition: The number of calories in the chain's burgers and fries, according to the Huffington Post.

The world's biggest hamburger chain said Wednesday that it will post calorie information on restaurant and drive-thru menus nationwide starting Monday.

The move comes ahead of a regulation that could require major chains to post the information as early as next year.

"We want to voluntarily do this," said Jan Fields, president of McDonald's USA. "We believe it will help educate customers."

So we want to know: Will the calorie content postings change what you order? Will it make you more likely to stop at McDonalds? And, if you live in a town that is too good for McDonald's, do you stop the fast food restaurant when you are on the road?

A little like telling someone whose head you are pointing a loaded weapon at how many bullets it contains. Calories are not the important thing here. Animal cholesterol causes cancer, also cause heart disease, diabetes and a whole host of other health problems. http://nutritionfacts.org/video/uprooting-the-leading-causes-of-death/ You can stick your head in the sand or find out the facts...up to you entirely.

Oh ya! Thank you McD's for the added incentive to avoid you like the plague. Fast food is TOXIC. Go plant-based w http://www.drfuhrman.com. Avoid and reverse disease caused by the Standard American Diet (SAD). Micronutrients are the key to a long, healthy life. After all, our health is our greatest wealth!

oh yes, cynthia and how much does that cost? for me its fruit, vegetables and meats....no breads and nothing white including rice (even the brown rice) and i have dropped almost 40 pound in the past year and a half...never hungry and full of energy and doesn't cost me anything....except for a very low cholesterol count...

Maybe they can take a page from Burger King's book. Sell packaged apple slices, which I can order instead of fries.
