Woman loses 10 pounds on a McDonald’s diet, makes a documentary
The documentary is Me & Mickey D; the woman is Soso Whaley, who
- lost a total of 28 pounds
- lowered her cholesterol from from 237 to 197, a drop of 40 points
- ate everything on the single item menu at least once during the course of the 30 days
How did she do it? With moderate exercise, making healthy choices, and staying at around 2,000 calories a day.
NRO: Besides the obvious, Super-Size-Me-is-wrong/be responsible/McDonald’s-can’t-make-you-fat,-only-the-choices-you-make-can message, what is the overall point of your documentary?
Whaley: Simply to encourage people to take more responsibility for their own lives and to appreciate the concept of freedom of choice that we have in the U.S. I also hope to inspire people to get out and move around more. Forget about “exercising,” just get out there and celebrate your life by staying busy and productive. “Eat to live, don’t live to eat.” — Moliere
Time to ignore the nutty nutrition guidelines, and start serving some good sense with the meals.
