Man Loses 37 Pounds By Eating Exclusively At McDonald's



A man lost 37 pounds and his cholesterol level dropped from 249 to 170 by eating exclusively at McDonald's for 90 days. He ate everything: from Big Macs to salads to sundaes to shakes to quarter pounders.

It's the antithesis of Supersize Me, the pseudo-documentary of a man who did the same—with two crucial differences:

The first difference is that John Cisca—a science teacher in the Colo-Nesco School District in Ankeny, Iowa—didn't eat like a pig.
He ate 2,000 calories per day. He also balanced the intake of nutrients based on the FDA's reference daily intake tables by combining different items from the fast food chain's menu:
So this isn't something where you say 'well he went to McDonalds and he only had the salads. No, I had the Big Macs, the quarter pounders with cheese. I had sundaes, I had ice cream cones.
The second difference is that Cisca started to walk 45 minutes a day, like any normal human being should do.


The results were impressive: his weight dropped from 279 pounds to 242.


The overall cholesterol level went from 249 to 170, while his bad cholesterol dropped from 173 to 113.


The teacher—who turned his science experiment into a documentary for his students—says that "the moral of this lesson isn't to eat more at McDonald's, but to pay attention to your daily nutrition and what you eat:"
The point behind this documentary is, 'Hey, it's (a) choice. We all have choices. It's our choices that make us fat not McDonald's.
It's a good and perfectly logical point: if the amount of calories you ingest is inferior to what you use every day, you will lose weight regardless of your restaurant choice. And if you have a balanced diet, you will have all the nutrients you need no matter where you eat.

So don't blame McDonald's. Blame yourself if you gain weight. If you eat like a pig—like the Supersize Me guy—you will be fat like a pig no matter where you eat.

This is pseudo-science at best.

First of all: that guy ate over the course of three meals a day the same number of calories MOST people eat in a single meal at McDonald's. A 2,000-calorie diet is a 2,000-calorie diet, to an extent. I'd love to see what his cholesterol levels and other lipid levels were had he eaten a healthier 2,000 calories per day. Weight loss only tells a small bit of the story.

Second, he said he started walking 45 minutes a day. That's pretty poor study design, ESPECIALLY for a science teacher. You kind of bury the lead when you claim to have lost weight while only eating McDonald's, and the addition of 45 minutes of exercise a day is passed off as supplementary and not a major factor in the primary endpoint (ie, weight loss).

How silly.

I don't think eating at McDonald's is a bad thing for a person to do. I think it's disgusting food, and it is certainly bad for you, but who am I to judge?

I don't think his movie was as popular as Super Size Me...but he pretty much showed that Super Size Me guy gained his weight because of how much he ate, not because it was necessarily McD's.
Part of the Supersize Me show was to show that if you ate like McD's wanted you to, supersizing every meal, that it was really bad for you. The movie starts out with the guy saying that any time he's asked to supersize, he was going to do it.

So basically, he did something that many/most of McDonald's customers aren't smart enough and/or willing to do.

I haven't seen any of his documentation so I can't say that he blew off the value of exercise. It does mention the 45 minutes of walking as something that every human should do.

Yeah. I think that this is the biggest point of the article. Stop blaming fast food companies for making you fat. You make your choices.
