The smell of Micky D's alone would make me lose my appetite. Maybe thats what he did. Walked in, smelled the food and said "hell no!" and skipped another meal.

You have all said what was in my brain - but had no guts to actually type it.

I'm not surprised. The key to weight loss is simply eating less. The carb/fat-calories/specialty diet stuff is a big distraction; what you eat doesn't matter nearly as much as how much you eat.

(By the way, kudos to this guy for making dramatic strides toward returning to his marital weight. Why every spouse doesn't feel obligated to do the same, I do not know.)

You can lose alot of weight by snorting metha all day too but that does not make it a good healthy idea!

Eat when you're hungry, drink when you're thirsty and sleep when you're tired, it seems to work for every other animal on the planet.

Well, I suppose if all you do all day is sit in McDonalds eating that crap, you would tend to become a little hefty. I think people have taken the "fast food" idea, which was just a quick bite when you're on the run and turned it into a dietary staple.
