McDonald’s Fast Food – The Ultimate Diet?

June 20, 2008

A man in Virginia lost about 80 pounds in six months by eating almost all of his meals at McDonald’s.
t is not what you are thinking. This is not someone out to disprove that movie “Supersize Me”. Instead of the greasy burgers and toxic french fries, he mostly ate salads, wraps and apple dippers without the caramel sauce.

Chris Coleson once weighed approximately 278 pounds in December. The 5’8″ Coleson now weighs about 199 pounds, and his waist size has shrunk from 50 to 36.

The 42-year-old businessman from Quinton says he chose McDonald’s because it’s convenient.

Coleson says his inspiration came from his two children and from the story of a blind war veteran who rode a tandem bicycle cross-country.

Coleson says his goal is to get back to the 185 pounds he weighed when he married his wife, Tricia Summer. Their 10th anniversary is Saturday, June 21st.


McDonalds Stops Serving Sliced Tomatoes on Sandwiches

June 9, 2008

Watch Out For The Tomatoes
McDonald’s says it has ordered all of its restaraunts to stop serving sliced tomatoes in its restaurants over concerns about Salmonella food poisoning associated with uncooked tomatoes. Danya Proud, spokesperson for McDonalds, said that the world’s largest hamburger chain has stopped serving sliced tomatoes altogether in the United States locations as a precaution until the source of the salmonella responsible for the illnesses in at least 16 states is discovered and the problem is dealt with properly.

She went on to say that McDonald’s will continue to serve grape tomatoes in its salads because no problems have been linked to that variety of tomatoes. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has said at least 23 people have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported.
