I'm Lovin' It: Man Loses 80 Pounds Eating McDonald's

And he did it in six short months.

It just goes to show you, anyone can lose weight if they create a deficit of calories and maintain it long enough... even if they consume most of their meals at McDonald's.

Why did he choose McDonald's as his food source to lose weight? He says it was convenient. I guess so. In my town of 55,000, we have five McDonald's restaurants. The fact that he lost weight shouldn't come as a surprise when you consider McDonald's offers several healthy low-fat meal options.

Eschewing burgers and fries, 42-year-old Chris Coleson ate mostly salads, wraps and apple dippers (minus the caramel sauce) to drop the weight.

Coleson, at 5 foot 8, weighed 278 pounds in December and now weighs 199 pounds. His waist size dropped from a size 50 to a size 36.

According to the news report, Chris' goal is to reach the 185 pounds he weighed when he married his wife, Tricia Coleson, ten years ago.
