What? Well do you mean a chicken AND cheese burger or a chicken burger and a great big beefy cheese burger seperately?
Also, it is going to depend entirely on where you purchase the burger, how the chicken is cooked etc so your question is a bit fruitless. Although we can probably give you rough estimates that aren't really going to help in a calorie-controlled diet.
The other thing to consider is the fat content-I've found that you can eat fruit and veg with the same no of calories as a packet of crisps but the crisps contain lots of saturated fat thus making fruit more suitable for weight loss.
A big mac meal from Macdonald's can be from around 1000-1500 calories depending on the size of the fries and drink you get.
There is of course a difference between a home made burger that you can control the nutritional content of, and a fast food one. Fast food basically has no nutritional value, and you should really try to cut it out of your diet.
McDonalds have a nutritional breakdown of every product on the back of the trayliners. There is also a new nutrition leaflet which should be available in all stores and all burger clams (boxes) have the nutritional info on the bottom now.
It's not healthy. Some people east it loads and stay relatively thin. The products contain additives that move the food through your system faster and can cause illness/withdrawal symptoms if you eat it a lot then sudeenly stop. It will wreck your body.
I have worked for McD's for 4 years now. After 4 months of non-stop eating it once a day because it was free I quit because i was nearly physically sick. I now can't eat junk food without being sick/feeling sick. Junk food has no nutritional value. The only things that they sell that do are the mineral water, OJ, fruit bag, milk and carrot sticks.
The deli sandwiches may sound appealing as a healthy option but i still think they look pretty rough!
Jsust remember, calories and saturated fats and you will get fat! Treat fast food as a treat not a meal.
One thing that might hlep you loose weight and still eat foods you enjoy, is finding replacements for your favorite meals... like swap fish and chips from the chippy for seabass and boiled potatos... you get the drift.
You love junk food because you love the sugar boost it gives you... once you are out of the habbit of eating it (couple weeks) you'll find you don't want it anymore...!
Junk food is not a viable option to incorporate into any healthy eating plan except very occaionally as a one off... full of grease, fat and sugar with v low nutritional value.
i have heard people try an justify it as OK because you have salad, meat, bread and dairy... kidding themselves WELL AND TRULY!!!
