Oh, How Far We've Come!

This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of McDonald's selling its one millionth burger (just three years after opening its doors!)

Back then, a hamburger -- sold in just one size -- cost fifteen cents and, as Dr. Lisa Young revealed in The Portion Teller Plan, offered a 1.5 ounce beef patty.

Now, with approximately 120 billion hamburgers under its belt, McDonald's has certainly expanded.

Case in point: a Double Quarter Pounder with cheese (shown at right) weighs in at 8 ounces of beef and retails for $3.29.
