McRib's Nebulous Origins
Don't over-generalize. Some of us enjoy the sweet taste of suffering.

anyone who goes to any commercial slaughter house for ANY SPECIES will immediately turn VEGAN...anyone who visits a commercial chicken farm will never eat commercially grown chicken again, ditto turkey (though I make myself for TG, I just try not to think about it) pig farms are the same way, can't get within a mile of them before you PUKE.

I raise my own beef and don't eat meat that I did not PERSONALLY KNOW before it died! I know everyone can't do that, but if you will eat meat, do your best to find either ORGANIC or GRASS FED or PASTURE RAISED meats and poultry. You will do yourself a favor as those animals have been naturally fed and humanely slaughtered in small USDA facilities that are as clean or cleaner than an operating room. Commercial meat animals are subjected to unrelenting stress, filthy nasty conditions and killed by the thousands per day on an assembly line where the workers are worked like slaves and are not personally invested in clean meat products.

It may cost you a bit more, but you will be supporting sustainable agriculture, humane treatment of meat animals and birds, and small businesses (the slaughter facilities) and the "family" farm, not an mega-filthy-farm like Tyson, or other factor farms that are bad for the environment and are more concerned with wringing a cent's profit out of a suffering animal and a debt-ridden farmer trying to survive.

I'm off my rant now, LOL but seriously, consider not only eating less but eating quality AND SAFETY! If you are going to eat meat at all. (And I do! I just raise my own)

McRib's Nebulous Origins
McNuggets are made from actual white chicken meat - and have been for several years (since 2003).

Please please please check your facts before making statements as if they were fact.

Additionally, MSP (mechanically seperated poultry), according to the USDA, MSP is safe to eat and may be consumed without restriction.

Can't say I'm surprised after seeing the pink goo they make McNuggets from.

Anybody eaten one yet?

McRib's Nebulous Origins
To completely deny your taste buds also dooms you to slipping into old habits when you are faced with temptation. A McRib every day or even every week while it is available is probably not the best idea in the world for your overall health - but eating something tasty as a treat, regardless of its origins, is not anything to say that someone's priorities are "royally screwed". Moderation, proper exercise, and eating less calories than you burn is the key to healthy weight loss. While nutrition is a factor in overall health and well-being, it is not exactly a requirement for weight loss as long as it is supplemented in some other form (multi-vitamin, etc).

This. This very clearly illustrates the problem with our eating as a society. I'm not trying to single you out, this is a very normal attitude these days.

If we only listen to our taste buds, and we ignore everything else- our eyes, our sense of reason, our health, how our bodies feel after we eat something, where the food came from, etc- if we ignore all of that because something is "tasty". Then we are doomed to poor health and obesity. We need to use all of our senses when we choose what to eat. And we also need to use our brains. Our taste buds are not going to keep us healthy and eating something yummy is not worth the negative consequences. I'm sorry, but if you can look at that picture of grey meat goo and say "but I'm going to eat it anyway because it is tasty" your priorities are royally screwed.
