A science teacher who lost 56 pounds in six months while eating nothing but McDonald's is the star of a new documentary, The Lunch Tray reports.
After 90 days, he had lost 37 pounds, and at the end of the six months, he weighed 224 pounds.
Cisna limited his daily intake to 2,000 calories and exercised for 45 minutes five times a week.
The documentary follows his journey, while incorporating footage from an amateur video he filmed while conducting the experiment.

I guess things like McDonald's meals are highly standardized so the same meal always have the same calories, the key to control glucose levels are to count calories, if you have discipline you can do this well with any food, if you can't perhaps eating McDonald's helps to count, if you can eat the same food over and over again and limit the calories it's the same as following a correct diet.
That is regarding calories, but I'm sure a full controlled diet, varying the foods is better nutrion than eating cardboard 3 times a day, so eating McDonald's will keep you slim, while frying your brain and following a varied diet with the same number of calories will keep you slim and healthy.

The MacDonald's menu choices has drastically changed.
There are lots of healthy choices, loads of veggies etc.
I think people should check out the menu and choices. Of course, if you are going to order a salad and drown it in dressing, guess what - calorie count goes up.
Order a McWrap with breaded chicken instead of grilled - same thing!
What the man in this documentary did is the same principle that Jenny Craig is based on. Jenny sells you pre-packed meals that heat in the micro. No leftovers. No cheating and you have a diet that has highly controlled calories. Combine that with some exercise and Bob's your uncle, you lose weight.
Of course you can do the same thing with home cooked but then there are always leftovers to contend with and its just so easy to add a little something something to make it taste better.
