Want to play McDonald's Monopoly game without ruining your waist line? If you want to stay healthy while maximizing your chances to win, check out the calories you'll need to burn off depending on how you get your game pieces.

The Lowest-Calorie Way to Get McDonald's Monopoly Game Pieces

By far, the best way to save calories while raking in your game pieces is by mailing away for them. While it's theoretically possible that you'll pick up a calorie or two by licking the stamps and envelopes, you could probably burn them off by jumping up and down with joy if you win. Or you could use self-sticking stamps and envelopes.

Eligible McDonald's Food Products by Calorie Count

If you want to get your Monopoly game pieces the traditional way, by buying eligible food products at McDonald's, you can still make some fairly healthy choices. Here is the list of eligible products by calorie count, listed from lowest to highest calorie count:

  • Medium (21 oz.) Fountain Drinks: As little as zero calories, zero fat, zero carbs (if you choose a Diet drink or water).
  • Hash Browns: 150 calories, 9g fat, 15g carbs.
  • Egg McMuffin: 300 calories, 13g fat, 31g carbs.
  • Filet-O-Fish sandwich: 390 calories, 19g fat, 39g carbs.
  • Biscuit Sandwich: 460 calories, 26g fat, 38g carbs.
  • 10-piece Chicken McNuggets (no sauce): 470 calories, 30g fat, 30g carbs.
  • Large Fries: 510 calories, 24g fat, 67g carbs.
  • Big Mac sandwich: 530 calories, 27g fat, 47g carbs.
  • 20-piece Chicken McNuggets (no sauce): 940 calories, 59g fat, 59g carbs.

In cases where there are a variety of choices within a category, I've chosen the lowest-calorie option.

Nutritional information comes from the McDonald's website. There is much more information available on the site, including ingredients and even the ability to enter your entire meal and get information about the calories, protein, and more in what you're eating.

Be careful, however, of game piece trading scams. If you have a rare piece, you've all but won the prize. If you have a common piece, they're very easy to obtain. No one with a rare piece is going to "split the prize" to get your common piece.
