This science teacher just proved that you can lose weight when you eat at McDonalds every day

We’ve all either sniggered at, or know someone who’s sniggered at fast food giant McDonald’s as serving up food that’s not really food — so it might well be true, you could starve your body eating there. This was proven by John Cisna, a science teacher, who, curious to find out what would happen if he ate three square meals from McDonald’s every day, di that for 180 days and ended up losing over 60 lbs at the end.

He did cheat a bit by sticking to 2,000 calories’ worth of fast food every day, though. Funnily enough, his book purports to contain ’50+ daily menus’ — how many ways can you combine burgers and french fries from McDonald’s?
