I want to be SuperSized

Recently I decided I am gonna cut down on Burger King and Hardees and focus more on McDonalds. The reason I decided to do this is because McDonalds is the only one between them that has never disappointed me. Lets start with the customer service, Burger King and Hardees are not half as professional and friendly as McDonalds employees. McDonalds employee's seem smarter and better trained. I noticed a recent trend at Burger King also, they upsize your meal without asking you. I have gotten into many fights with them because of this. I would order a kids meal and they automatically assume I want a larger coke and fries, I order the XXL mushroom burger combo and they assume I want my coke and fries upsized. I DON'T! McDonalds on the other hand never upsized a meal without asking me first. Hardees has a consistency issue. There are many times I have eaten from Hardees and was disappointed with the food. Recently I also had the same problem with Burger King and now I will never have another Big Fish at Burger King again. McDonalds on the other hand are always consistent with me, I will always only find 2 pickles in my quarter pounder to remove and the burger will always taste the same. According to the calories charts on the Hardees, McDonalds and Burger King websites, McDonalds meals have LESS calories and fat in them. For example the regular whopper with cheese has 800 calories and 49 grams of total fat while the quarter pounder with cheese is 510 calories and contains 25 grams of fat. The SuperStar has 790 calories and 47 grams of fat while the big mac is 560 calories and contains 30 grams of fat. The fillet-o-fish is also only 400 calories and 18 grams of fat. So in conclusion, McDonalds is the healthy and better choice for me.
