Virginia Man Sheds 80 Pounds Eating at McDonald's

Thanks to junior correspondent Wrecking Machine for the following story and accompanying comment... As a big fan of Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me and 30 Days), I find the story very interesting.
QUINTON, Va. - 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. Full Story...

Take that, Morgan Spurlock. Turns out you're just like that asshole who sued McDonald's because he thought 100% beef meant it was 100% healthy for him and not going to make him into a fat tub of lard.

What a genius move by this guy. With all the negative pub that McDonald's has gotten lately - and the career that Jarod the Subway nerd has made for himself - this guy could have made himself thousands and thousands of bucks by doing this. You know McD's will try and make him the centerpiece of a marketing campaign.

Hmmm.... Maybe I'll put on 50 pounds and see what kind of nickels I can squeeze out of KFC.
