The New York Times analyzes the recent decision of McD to produce a healthier burger and finds while they are reducing the fat, those who like hi calorie and hi fat fast foods won't be totally turned off by the "new" Mac:

"Lost in all the hoopla is that even with fewer trans fatty acids and saturated fats, anyone ordering a Big Mac, super-size fries and a super-size Coke will consume more than 1,600 calories. For children, the meal takes care of all daily calorie needs, with some left over for the day after."

There is a benefit in the elimination of trans fats, but if calories concern you, check it out.
