    Yea Big Macs rule. In hawaii for a while they had what they called a Double Big Mac. The double had two extra beef patties on it. They also had a Mega Mac which had 1/4 lb patties intead of the the regular burger pattie. Both were also good.

    I eat one about once a year. I figure that's the amount just below the threshold of negative health effects.

    I would definitely eat a Big Mac, but I tend to order off the dollar menu.

    IN N OUT = one burger to rule them all.

    But yes I would eat a Big Mac, and those new Mac Snack Wraps are pretty tasty and a "healthier" alternative to a full size big mac.

    Just had one for the first time in a while. You can't overindulge in the Mac, 1 every 2-3 months or so is the remedy.

    I haven't had a big mac in a long time. They taste good but there not good for you, I guess if someone offered me one I'd take it. I don't really have an opportunity to eat fast food very often at all, if I was doing a road trip all over the US I suppose I'd stop at a fast food restaurant off the thruway.

    I"m a fatso, so I've eaten plenty. Just a couple years ago, I ate at McE D's easily over 400 meals a year, for two years. That's almost a thousand meals in two years there.
    I'm 5'11" and 150 lbs., can still longjump (standing) 6'6" and play 4.0 singles..... at 60 years and 11 months.
    Ain't what you eat, it's what you do in between eating.

    Hamburgers should be about ketchup and mustard. Not some nasty salad dressing labeled "special sauce".

    I ate one 3 years ago.

    It wasn't tasty at all, so now when I want a burger, I buy my own ingredients and make it myself from start to finish.

    Much healtier and far better tasting :D

    Haven't been to a Mcdonald in 3 years now........

    If I'm hungry enough, or if I'm at McDonald's (I rarely go there) I'll eat one. I prefer a Western Bacon Cheeseburger from Carl's Jr.

    No Bug macs... will empty me out. Will only eat it if pressed in a corner. Once a year is the average I think.

    Why is that, are you in prison?

    As for the poll, I can't understand what kind of sicko would vote 'no'.

    Exactly. It's real "big" to look down at two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a seseme seed bun and with a lofty aire reeking of 'moral authority' sniff:

    "I would never eat a Big Mac!"

    Well, imho it's all relative...particularly should the phrase "you are what you eat" come into play:


    For example, I would eat this:

    And (if my life depended on it) even this:
    [​IMG]



    OVER THAT!:

    Yes, I eat them. I need to get it out of my system every couple of months or so then it's back to normal until next time...

    I've actually debated this with a Indian friend of mine who eats a lot of meat. I'm Indian, and a pure vegetarian since birth, from a very traditional Hindu upbringing, so no, not for a BILLION DOLLARS, in all seriousness.

    If you ask, "why"? My answer would be that if I were to sacrifice my principles and eat one somehow (I can't imagine how horrible it would be for me, since just the smell and thought of one is horrible), where would I be? I'd be a billion dollars richer and have to look at myself in the mirror every day after that. No thank you!

    To save my life somehow or to somehow save the life of another would be a different question. I think I would in that scenario, as I would just hold my nose and find a way to consume it. It would NOT be easy. Think Fear Factor. A Big Mac is not that different for me than what some of those people are forced to eat on TV!

    Y'all are hilarious, creating these circumstances on wether or not if you were given a 'choice' to eat a big mac, would or wouldn't you.

    I rarely eat them, but do remember having one a few days ago. I do generally try to avoid McD's as often as possible (at most once a week), however one thing that cannot be denied is the amazing smell of their fries.

    I def. would eat one. However I prefer other burgers at McD more and I'd rather eat and BK or other places over McD usually. However I probably do it once a month or there abouts. Pretty good stuff for a good price. All things in moderation.

    Now if I was in Arizona, this would be the place to go and eat , looks like awsome burgers! The Heart Attack Grill! And no healthy choices as well!!The quadruple by-pass burger looks like the way to go(only 8000 calories),along with the unlimited fries, a few beers, this is the place!Just watching this video makes me want to go there right now.

    Sometimes only a Big Mac will do. I take the pickles off. Pickles ruin burgers.

    I most definetly would never eat a Big Mac... ever. They don't taste that good. Rather make my own, healthier, heartier burger myself. Not the crap McDs makes.
