How many calories in a Big Mac or a Double Whopper? Just ask Google Now

How many calories in a Big Mac or a Double Whopper? Just ask Google Now
The ever-helpful Google is introducing a new feature, aiming to induce or prevent the guilt trip associated with a visit to your favorite fast food establishment. You can now say "OK, Google" to your phone, and ask Google Now directly things like "How many calories in a Big Mac?" or "What's in a Double Whopper?"

Regardless of whether you ask your phone, or type those in Google's search field on your computer, a picture of the fast food culprit will appear, on top of a table with the nutritional values breakdown will appear. This will inform you how many calories are in each Happy Meal, for instance, and the amount of proteins or carbs there. The list that Google has created is pretty exhaustive, including a number of meals from the most popular chain restaurants, so you can take the feature for a spin right now on your Android phone, and don't play surprised when you learn the amount of fat you wolf down with each Triple Whopper.

That's going to be awfully inaccurate. Their fitness app is one of the worst I've ever used btw.

It should also tell you how much exercise you need to burn the calories if you eat one of the menu.

Assuming you enter your height, current weight, and estimated activity level.

Don't bother eating this dog food from the McD and KFC in the first place.

If you're eating at BK or McD's, I'm guessing you're not terribly worried about calorie count.

Forget the calorie count. The answer Google needs to give is the address for the nearest Cardiologist.

Yeah, I'm actually surprised, less than 300 calories in a Big Mac? The panini sandwitches at work have more calories in them than that.

It's actually 563 calories. The 257 calories refers to a 100 gram serving, which is about half a big Mac. But who eats just half a hamburger?
