Ah, the Big Mac. For many of us, it's a guilty pleasure, a midnight snack, a weekend treat. While it may taste delicious going down, have you ever really thought about what's going on in your body as you digest your meal?
Well lucky for us, the folks over at Fast Food Menu Price have broken down what the Big Mac does to your body. Let's just say...it's not pretty.
Pretty terrifying, right? But remember, this is in no ways a world-renowned scientific study...As the site explains, it is purely for entertainment.
Certified dietitian nutritionist Lisa Moskovitz, CEO of NewYork Nutrition Group talked with Yahoo Health and explained that the immediate reaction to eating a Big Mac varies from person to person, and the infographic is accurate but "somewhat exaggerated."
So, whatever the validity of this infographic, you may want to think twice before ordering your next Big Mac.
Feeling hungry? Here are some of the best foodie Instagrams of 2014:

Double Chili Cheeseburger!
8 (3-ounce) hamburger patties, each about 1/3-inch thick
Freshly ground black pepper
8 ounces sharp Cheddar, cut into 8 slices
1 cup thinly sliced yellow onions
4 hamburger buns
Down Home Chili
Preheat the griddle.
Season the onions with Essence, salt, and pepper. Add the onions to the griddle and cook, stirring until wilted, about 8 minutes.
Lightly season the patties on both sides with the Essence, salt, and pepper. Place the patties on the hot griddle and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Flip the patties, add 1 slice of cheese to each, and continue to cook. Meantime, place the hamburger buns, inside down, on the griddle, and cook until warmed through and lightly toasted, about 2 minutes. Place one toasted bun on a serving plate. Place one patty on the bottom bun, spoon chili on top of the patty, and top with a second patty and more chili. Place a portion of onions on the chili and top with bun. Repeat with the remaining ingredients, and serve immediately. #nationalcheeseburgerday
