This poster breaks down exactly how this classic fast-food order affects your body just 10 minutes after eating to over an hour after the meal is said and done. Plenty of the information will you urge you stay away, but the fact that you'll be hungry just 40 minutes after consuming 549 calories and half of your recommended saturated fat for the day is seriously shocking. The next time you think about heading through that drive-thru window, just refer to this graphic! It will definitely push you in a healthier direction.
