    I saw an interview with him on TV today, and he eats nothing but Big Macs. He said he hasn't been sick in over 16 years and his cholesterol level is OK...
    Part of me thinks he's weird, but part of me also envies him. After all, he doesn't have to worry about what to eat for his next meal, he's perfectly happy eating Big Macs every day, and he's suffered no illness from doing so--not yet anyway.
    Anyway, you can read about him here .

    The next fad diet. Eat 18,000 Big Macs and you won't get fat. [​IMG]
    Look he even eats the bun, so much for the ketone fueled protein/stinky people diets.

    So people like him are reason the signs say "Billions Served?" I haven't eaten at McDonald's for 8 years and I don't plan on eating there again. I loathe fast food.

    I can't figure out which is more sad: this guy and his devotion to the Big Mac or the reporters that 'scooped' this big story. What the hell? Does this guy have a agent or something? Who cares?

    I haven't had a Big Mac in about 7 years, but in college I used to eat 4 Big Macs in one sitting.

    I hate Big Macs! That "special" sauce stuff is real nasty.

    Actually, I have heard that if you eat one thing and ONLY one thing, all the time, you will not gain wait, you will stay healthy with thhat diet. This is one of the principles of Jared's subway diet. Eat a sub for lunch, and a sub for supper, and walk to subway and back each time. As long as it's one thing only, you will not gain weight. Unfortunately for him, as soon as he starts to change his diet, even if he eats healthy, he will gain a ton of weight, and his cholesteral will be all out of whack.
    the poor, strange little man....

    That story ran in our local paper and I too felt the "Who Cares?" attitude. You'd think he would've at one point saved a days worth of Big Mac money to get a decent haircut.

    Honestly, how in the hell do they know that he has eaten that many Big Macs? It could be one heck of a hoax!!
    If not, I think the guy is an idiot. Would you really want to brag about that?

    Apparently the guy doesn't agree that "variety is the spice of life."

    I always thought Big Macs tasted better when they used to serve them in those polystyrene containers. They seemed to keep the buns moister. The cardboard containers they use now, out of supposed concern for the environment, leave the buns hard. (When I was in London recently, I noticed they still use the old containers, so I guess it's just in the US.)

    And we used to make fun of my dad for eating Wheat Chex every morning before going to work (for over 30 years)! I'm sorry, dad! [​IMG]
    If I was going to eat the same thing every day, I would certainly pick something other than Big Macs. Yuck!
