A few months ago, I read about a 42-year old man who lost 80 pounds (in 6 months) by eating at McDonalds! Is this true? I believe his cholesterol went down, too, as he was eating salads and wraps (instead of burgers and fries).
Many of us have seen the movie "Super Size Me", in which the guy ate exclusively at McDonalds and gained weight, had high cholesterol, blood pressure, aches and pains, and numerous other health conditions. I think the 42-year old's diet was to disprove some of the movie's conclusions.
So, I'm wondering if there is a way to go on a healthy "diet" by eating at fast food chain restaurants? Is there something that I missed in reading the "McDonalds Diet" story?
