Ive got to say "well done" to her.
I dont eat fast food (when cutting ) and i dont like Mc D's really as a company but what i hate the most are people who say things like :
"Mc D's made me fat so i'm going to sue them"
What this lady has done is shown that you CANT sue a fast food chain for making you fat, because if your sensible you CAN eat their food and lose/maintain your wieght.
If you eat badly your have noone to blame but yourself.

It doesn't matter what you're eating. To a point...
The important factors are nutrient ratios and their relation to your training regime. Along with kcal intake of course.

Read the news carefully - from 227 to 190. So she went from totally obese to very fat. She could have done that with nearly any unhealthy diet in the world.

No...not really....she had to be in caloric deficit with proper macro breakdowns, as LO stated above.Originally Posted by MarcusG
I work with fat peopl all day, and trust me....the don't just lose 30lbs of fat by eating less fast food.

Oh...I agree on that point. The news was just lookin' for "news". I hate our media Very, ver, very x 10^10^10 much....Originally Posted by MarcusG

Kudos to her for dropping the pounds. McDonalds does have some *decent* stuff on their menu that I'll eat in a pinch if Im travelling and there's no food around. Better to get *some* calories in than starve for sure.
But, she would have been way better off cooking healthy food and eating proper meals at home.

Her macros probably looked like this:
Lost 36lbs - started at 175 11cals/lb
breakfast: Egg mcmuffin, hash browns, fruit yogurt and coffee
Lunch: 2 hamburgers small fries fruit yogurt small coke
dinner: California cob, grilled chicken no dressing, vanilla reduced ice cream
total cals 2045
protein 89g 17%
carbs 259g 51%
fat 68g 30% of which 50% was saturated
Total sodium 3623
total chol 465
Still total calories are what counts - problem areas down the road? Saturated
fat, high sodium and high cholesterol; but if she has normal BP I guess what's the big deal.
