Man sheds 80 pounds eating McDonald'sPosted on Jun 21st 2008 1:16PM by Bev Sklar
If you're suddenly trapped inside a McDonald's for six months -- don't worry -- there's plenty of food to survive and you may even lose a few pounds. In fact, a Virginia man lost 80 pounds by eating nearly every one of his meals at McDonald's over the last six months.
Chris Coleson weighed 278 pounds and had a 50 inch waist this past Christmas, now he's at 199 pounds with a 36 inch waist. No more Big & Tall stores for him. Coleson did it by choosing salads, wraps and apple dippers without dipping in the caramel sauce. His goal is to reach his wedding weight (185 pounds) -- the Colesons celebrate their 10th anniversary today. Happy Anniversary!
Amazingly, Coleson walked into a McDonald's every day and didn't once order a Big Mac Value Meal. How he ate salads and wraps for six months is beyond me. So next time you stand at the counter fretting over the Double Cheeseburger Meal or the Premium Southwest Salad with Grilled Chicken, just remember Coleson. You can stay healthy in McDonald's for one day with a little willpower.
