Dr Oz: Fast Food Under 500 Calories: McDonalds & Subway

Dr Oz: Healthy Fast Food

You can say in order to lose weight, you’re going to cut out fast food forever, but let’s be truthful. That’s never going to happen, so on today’s show, Dr Oz gave you options to make the fast food a little healthier (while escaping the dirty little Restaurant Secrets). He enlisted the help of Dr. Allan Stewart and Dr. Mathew R. Williams, two heart specialist, and challenged them to find the healthiest fast foods under 500 calories. Could they do it?

    I am disgusted by Dr Oz for actually promoting disgusting, fried, GMO, pesticide, hormone laden garbage. McDonald’s?? Are you out of your mind?? No sane, sensible, knowledgeable doctor would EVER recommend eating such disgusting food.
    Dr, Oz should be ashamed for promoting such garbage.

    WOW! I do not agree. I am by far not a McDonalds advocate. However, we all find ourselves at a fast food place at one time or another. So to know that there is a reasonable option to have a meal with the kids and the football team after practice is nice. Don’t take the segment out of context, no one said “go eat at McDonalds” but if you find yourself there eat this, not that. Take it easy lady, life is too short.

    I agree with the general sentiment expressed by most posters re: McDonalds, specifically the Chicken McNuggets. This episode was just rebroadcast today, and I was horrified to see McNuggets endorsed on the Dr. Oz show. Check out the link below for more info on McNuggets – it will scare you.

    I am bummed – I generally like and respect Dr. Oz, but my respect just waned a little bit today.

    I like Dr. Oz’s fast food choices and I would like to suggest that he should provide a book of his eating out guide and with weight watchers points. Good idea.

    I understand why this is so terrible. In todays busy society, everyone is on the go and he is trying to help people who love their fast food to make better decisions on the menu.
