Day 14: How Much Sodium is in a McDonald’s Shake?

A 12 oz. McDonald’s Chocolate Shake has 300 mg of sodium.  A large serving of fries from McDonald’s has 350 mg of sodium.

Are you surprised?  Check out their nutritional facts disclosure.  Wait till you see how much sodium is in their Angus Chipotle BBA burger.  And how much (added) sugar is in the aforementioned shake.

The slogan of McDonald’s is “I’m lovin’ it.”  I can promise your pancreas won’t be.

Here’s what happened on Day 13:

Breakfast

Smoothie of banana (2 lbs), acai (4 oz), and strawberry (8 oz)

Lunch

Cantaloupe (2 lbs cut)

Snack

Celery hearts

Dinner

Cheat meal!  (Had sushi at my wife’s birthday party … no refined sugar or alcohol, though – I don’t plan to “cheat” on that for the year)

Diet Plan

80/10/10 Raw Vegan (modified slightly)

Supplements

Green Vibrance

Exercise

Off

Notes

The sushi I had didn’t make me feel too bad, but I didn’t feel as clean and energized as I do after eating fruit.
