    My nutritionist says that I gotta take in a minimum of 1900 Calories a day to support my bodily functions. However, since I'm on a weight loss program, I workout and have a diet. I must consume lesser than 1900 and burn the other stored fat in my body. Believe me, taking in McDonald's once a day doesn't affect your diet. Just stay away from fries and softdrinks cause they are buffers to the calorie meter. :D
