Man eats only McDonald's for 90 days and...

loses 37 pounds. As he says, its what you eat, not where you eat.

  1. Sounds like a Jared Fogle wannabe. Jared made $15 million losing weight and pimping for Subway.

        Not at all. I admire overachievers and I hope to be one someday.

    2. And he got 3 months of free meals. Smart guy

      1. Now that's the kind of diet I have been waiting for last 20 years.

        1. In the end, for most people, it's just about calories in, calories out. I know many people on my weight-loss board are shocked that I was able to lose a substantial amount of weight, even though I eat things like pizza, fast food etc. on occasion. As long as you stick with a calorie range that results in weight loss, you'll lose weight.

          BUT, I'd like to see what his diet was like before starting the McDonald's diet. It's pretty much a given that you'll lose weight if you eat 2,000 calories a day after eating 4,000 calories a day for years. Someone like me, a 5'3" female, would likely not lose weight on 2,000 calories a day. My maintenance range is like 1900-2100.

              Yeppers...losing weight begins at the refrigerator door, portion control and best exercise is push aways...push away from the table. Exercise for muscle maintance and cardio benefits...Eat less for losing weight.

            2. I read the article. It says he ate egg whites for breakfast and salad for lunch! of course he is going to lose weight....
