McDonald's 'Loaded Lettuce' has more calories than a Big Mac

The newest McDonald's burger might look healthy but it doesn't compare to some of its more loved classics.

McDonald's released its "Loaded Lettuce" burger to much love from fans applauding the health benefits of the burger on its Facebook page.

The burger replaces the standard buns on the burger with lettuce leaves.

However, despite the removal of the carb loaded buns by McDonald's, the new burger still contains more calories than the Big Mac, Quarter Pounder and McChicken Burgers.

The Loaded Lettuce contains 545 calories while the Big Mac contains 494, the Quarter Pounder has 490 and the McChicken, 367. The new burger also manages to contain more fat than some of its bun counterparts.
