(not so) Fatty Fridays: Bizzaro McDonald's Story

Ok, so it's technically Saturday, but I've been meaning to write about this since I first saw it a couple days ago.

Evidently, a Richmond, VA man is claiming that through a diet solely consisting of McDonald's, he has lost around 90 pounds!

According to Good Morning America, " After six months on his McDiet, [Chris] Coleson lost 80 pounds and dropped 14 pants sizes. His waist went from 50-inches to 36."

Frankly, if this happened, good for him. Eating, "salads, wraps, apple-walnut salads and the occasional cheeseburger since last December..." according to this AdAge article is bound to help you lose weight.

Sadly though, that's not what McDonald's primarily markets, and that's not what most people eat. So congratulations to Chris for being able to wear your wedding band for the first time in seven years. I hope your message gets out and more will follow your lead...first of which being the McDonald's marketing team.
