You know Capnhank: I agree with you. I read the article several times and I am not a fan of Mickie D’s but I found his story not credible. While in college, I had a diet very similar to what the site indicated. If I had a liver problem, which I did not, it would have been due to imbibing almost daily.
To have a diet of what he indicated and if he gained that much weight and had that many physical problems, it seems to me that there was other things going on.
I had the same diet for four years and I left college weighing the same thing that I did in high school. Unfortunately during my latter years it has not been so easy. I graduated from high school and college at 125. They use to call me gone ass. Not so much any more. Due to Atkins I am now at 185.
I believe the story that was listed was for dollars only. I find and feel that his report has no credibility. This is not support for McDonalds, it just does not seem believeable.
