The Big Mac is what you can call McDonald's flagship burger. Blessed with two thick beef patties, three slices of bread, and an assortment of other mouth-watering goodies such as pickles, lettuce strips, and a sheet of cheese, it's the sandwich of choice for those who want to make sure they won't feel bitin after a trip to the hugely popular fast food chain.
But what exactly happens after we down a Big Mac (aside from, of course, making us feel 20 pounds heavier)? Two words: A lot.
Apparently, the said burger not only tastes good, it also triggers a host of processes inside our bodies—some of which might just discourage you from taking a bite again.

That part about feeling hungry again just after downing a 540-calorie monstrosity totally caught us off guard. And that bit about the amount of time our bodies need to digest it? Surprising.
We're not trying to be party-poopers on your fast food parade, and the Big Mac is, in itself, a tasty dish. Just don't overdo it, mkay? Eat Big Macs moderately and you'll be good.
