Man Loses 86 lbs Eating at McDonalds

Losing weight, for many, means going on a diet and cutting out fast food. But for Chris Coleson, a businessman from Richmond, VA, fast-food dining was actually able to help him lose weight.

Coleson told his wife that he could close weight by eating anywhere - even McDonald's. So that he did. He ate just two meals per day at Mickey D's, consisting of "wraps, apple-walnut salads, and the occassional cheeseburger." Since Coleson began his McD's diet in December, he has lost 86 lbs.

The key to his weight loss success is in the number of calories he is consuming. Notice that he's not chosen the greasiest, fattiest choices on the menu - instead he's chosen more sensible options, and limits his caloric intake to 1,200 to 1,400 calories per day. For an adult male, that kind of intake is pretty low.

So there you go - McDonald's can either help you pile on the pounds, as Morgan Spurlock showed us in "Supersize Me", or it can help you lose weight if you choose healthier options and a "starvation diet."
