A 57-year-old man from the United States has lost 26 kg (58.5 pounds) by eating only McDonald’s food for 100 days straight.
Kevin Maginnis, from Phoenix, Arizona, said he started the diet in January 2023 after he became tired of being overweight. He said he was 107.9 kg (238 pounds) when he started the diet and weighed in at 81 kg (179.5 pounds) on his last day.
Maginnis said he ate McDonald’s food for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. He said he would order a variety of items, including burgers, fries, chicken nuggets, and salads. He said he would also drink water instead of soda.
Maginnis said he was surprised by how much weight he lost on the diet. He said he didn’t feel like he was starving himself and that he still had energy. He said he was also able to maintain his muscle mass.
Maginnis said he is not recommending that other people try his diet. He said it was a personal challenge and that he was lucky to not have any negative side effects. He said he is now eating a more balanced diet and is working out regularly.
Experts Weigh In
Dietitian Lisa Moskovitz, RD, of the New York University Langone Medical Center, said that it is possible to lose weight on a McDonald’s diet, but that it is not the healthiest way to do so.
“It’s possible to lose weight on any diet, but it’s important to make sure that you’re getting the nutrients your body needs,” Moskovitz said. “A McDonald’s diet is very high in calories and fat, and it’s low in nutrients.”
Moskowitz said that people who are considering trying a McDonald’s diet should talk to their doctor or a registered dietitian first. She said that they should also make sure to get plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in their diet.
Maginnis’s story is an interesting one, but it is important to remember that it is not a healthy way to lose weight. If you are considering trying a McDonald’s diet, talk to your doctor or a registered dietitian first. They can help you create a healthy diet that will help you reach your weight loss goals.thumb_upthumb_downuploadGoogle itmore_vert
