However, there are still ways to eat at McDonald’s without losing caloric control. For healthier options, take a look at the snack and side menu and build your own meal. Not only are the prices cheap (usually between $1-$2), the sizes are more petite and the options are healthier. The Grilled Chicken Salad has just 350 calories and costs under $5.
