Man Loses 86 lbs Eating 1,200-1,400 Calories Per Day Of McDonald's Food

Chris Coleson, a businessman from Richmond, VA told his wife he could lose weight by eating anywhere — even McDonald’s.

“I told her I could lose weight eating anywhere,” he said. “I told her I could do it eating at McDonald’s.”

So he did. By eating two meals a day (and only two meals) consisting of “wraps, apple-walnut salads and the occasional cheeseburger” Chris has lost 86 lbs since December.

Coleson told AdAge that he’s not interested in being the next “Jared,” but would like to encourage McDonald’s to build playgrounds where parents with disabilities can play with their children.

“I wasn’t disabled when I weighed 300 pounds, but it made me think about parents who are,” said Mr. Coleson. He currently “works closely with his local YMCA and the Wounded Warrior Project, which provides services to disabled veterans,” says AdAge.
