We love burgers, pizzas, noodles and pastries – don’t we? These delicacies might be great on our palate, but they don’t go well on our waistline. Calorific fast foods not only lead to weight gain, but also promote several lifestyle diseases, including diabetes, cholesterol and much more. This is why we often give it a second thought before stepping in to our favourite eateries for sinful indulgences. Much relatable? But what if we tell you McDonald’s is helping you check on calorie count, along with offering all the yummy burgers and nuggets?! Yes, you read that right.
Reportedly, a McDonald’s outlet – believed to be in China’s Shanghai – has used exercise cycles (instead of regular tables and chairs) for sitting arrangement.
Currently, a video is doing the rounds on social media that features a lady cycling on the exercise bike, while chomping a burger and gulping down some soft drinks. A Twitter handle – named Alvin Foo – shared the video on Twitter that went viral on the micro-blogging site. Initially, one might get confused if the clip was taken in a gym, but the branding on the cycle and the glass door re-assures it to be a McDonald’s joint. “@McDonalds “get slim” meal in #Shanghai,” the post read.
