Takeaway…….the calories! 10 meal options under 700 calories at McDonald’s.


The Takeaway industry is a multi million dollar empire and the reason why it’s so successful is because it’s fast, affordable and convenient. 

There is nothing that can beat a home cooked meal but the reality is that most of us have demanding jobs and do not have time to cook every day. 

The next best option after a long day at the office is the McDonald’s Drive Thru, so we have compiled a list of 10 meal combinations that are under 700 calories.


Typically, you would go through the drive through and grab a Big Mac, Fries and a coke. They then ask “Up size?” and most of us say YES why not! You have just consumed 1502 calories and that’s just 1 meal!


Here are 10 options under 700 calories to enjoy, without the guilt afterwards.

  • Always try and go with diet coke, it has zero calories and you can choose any size drink you want! 
  • You can enjoy the Caramel, Chocolate or Strawberry Sundaes but as long as you are willing to give up the fries. 
  • It makes financial sense to order the meal instead of individual items, but then do not eat the fries and have a diet cold drink.
