Downsize Me

Colby Cosh talks about a guy in Canada who’s eating nothing but McDonald’s food and still losing weight. Colby asks:

Is it some kind of heresy to suggest that McDonald’s may not necessarily be a temple of doom for people who want to eat right, and are prepared to go about it armed with common sense?

Clearly, yes.

Incidentally, the diet is going reasonably well; I lost about four pounds last week, with four days of 30–40 minutes of aerobic exercise, about 15 minutes a session on various pieces of weight-training equipment, with limited changes in diet that mostly add up to “don’t eat all the time.”

There are several people who are doing the “lose weight the McDonald’s way” program. There is a film-maker who has done a counter-documentary to “SuperSize Me” trying to show SSM‘s anti-McDonald’s bias. There’s a teacher who is doing it to prove some nutritional point to her students. And some others.All are making significant weight losses. None of them get the attention of SSM because they all place the blame for weight on the person; SSM makes it easy to blame MickyD.
