Oh look. Speaking of people who decide to live exclusively off things…
Following hot on the heels of the post about the woman who lived off nothing but Starbucks for a year comes a guy who lived off McDonald’s for three months. I feel like this has been done before, and not just by Morgan Spurlock, whose documentary “Supersize Me” was one of the dumbest movies I’ve ever tried to watch. Seriously. I cannot understand how that thing became a hit. Yes. If you eat a LOT of crap, always choose the unhealthiest thing on the menu and eat as much of it as is humanly possible, you are going to gain weight and be unhealthy. If I hit myself in the face with a hammer, it’s going to hurt. I don’t need to make a movie to prove this. I think, at some point, someone already did a thing where he ate the better things on the McDonald’s menu and lost weight, to refute Spurlock’s, uh, I’ll call it a “point.” Then there’s that Jared guy, who ate nothing but Subway sandwiches and lost about eleventy bazillion pounds.
I can’t imagine ever doing anything like this, because McDonald’s food doesn’t taste very good and I’d go nuts from the lack of variety, but this teacher from Iowa lived off McDonald’s for three months, lost 37 pounds and lowered his cholesterol, proving that, if you choose the healthier items on the menu and don’t stuff your idiot face, you won’t get fat and unhealthy.
