Q: What item on the McDonald’s menu has the highest calorie count?
A: Nope, it’s not the Big Mac (550 calories) or the 16-ounce McFlurry with M&Ms (930 calories). It’s the Big Breakfast with Hotcakes: hotcakes, hash brown, sausage and biscuit for 1,150 calories, not including butter and syrup.
The breakfast also includes 35 grams of fat and 2,090 milligrams of sodium.
Generally speaking, health experts recommend adults stick to a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet with 66 or fewer grams of fat and less than 2,300 milligrams of sodium — about one teaspoon of salt.
