Below is a photo of the McDonalds menu of breakfast, lunch, dinner and beverages.
This menu is updated @ July 2018 and the menu price is the new pricing without the GST. Update: Do note that effective 1 September 2018, a 6% service tax would be chargeable to the menu prices (they mentioned to contact customer service at 1300-13-1300 for any clarification).

Note: This menu supersedes the older version which has included GST.
Usually I see many people, myself included who would be quite indecisive as to what to eat and would be spending sometime staring at the menu trying to make up their minds. With the menu, you can have a heads up of the choices as well as the price.
Update October 2018: McDonalds also introduced more choices in their value meal:
Basically in each value meal you would have the choice of burger/chicken/nuggets with fries and a drink. You can now choose to replace the fries with either a nasi McD, coleslaw or corn. I have tried their coleslaw- it has more mayo compared to the one in KFC but nevertheless is still delicious.
Calorie content and nutritional information of the food in McDonalds:

Nowadays the fast food restaurants are very transparent about the calorie content of their food. For McDonald’s, the nutritional (fat, carbohydrate, protein, salt and sugar) are being made available on their website, in their restaurants as well as the wrapper where your food is being stored/wrapped in.
Fortunately I am not crazy about fast food as I find I get hungrier and less energetic after taking fast food. But once in a few weeks or in a month, I do indulge in a little bit of fast food.
If I go to McDonalds, I often end up ordering the 1+1 set which consists of 1 McChicken and 1 small fries at only RM5.99 which is actually RM6 (after rounding up):
There are a few choices offered in the 1+1 but this combination is my favourite. First, because I like McChicken and secondly, I also love their fries. But if I select their value meal the only fries size they have available are the regular size with a limited amount of soft drinks. I only want a small fries…. and that also I find it is a little too much and I do not need a drink as I prefer other drinks like Sarsi or Tropicana twister or sometimes with the teh panas that I bought from my favorite coffee shop.
Below is the calorie content of McChicken which is behind their wrapper: 156g consisting of 395 calories:
And the calorie content of the small fries: 74g consisting of 224 kcal
I would consider that an adult who is sedentary do not require 2130 calories but about 1800kcal, or less if you are going on a diet. So minus the drink, it is about a third of one’s daily caloric requirement.
