McDonald's Dumb-Dumb Diet

Some dude lost a bunch of weight eating mostly McDonald’s. Wait, it’s not what you think. The Associated Press reports:
A Virginia man lost about 80 pounds in six months by eating nearly every meal at McDonald's.

Not Big Macs, french fries and chocolate shakes. Mostly salads, wraps and apple dippers without the caramel sauce.

Chris Coleson tipped the scales at 278 pounds in December. The 5-foot-8 Coleson now weighs 199 pounds and his waist size has dropped from 50 to 36.

The 42-year-old businessman from Quinton says he chose McDonald's because it's convenient.
Sounds like someone was just trying to be the next Jared—tisk, tisk!

Yeah, I read it yesterday, the typical article that has a BIG (not mac) title and then the content clarifies.

McDonald's salads have a lot of nasty ingredients in them, especially in the dressing. And I'm sure the lettuce is loaded with pesticides, and is usually limp in my limited experience. Not to mention the apple dippers -- the apples are probably quite old and are preserved with ascorbic acid. Ick. Why not just buy some lettuce and apples at the store?

Hey JenJen-

I honestly think the dude was just trying to cash in with McDonald's. Call me a cynic.
