Dear FLORIDA: Obviously you do not know where QUINTON ,VA is. I do,-It is out in the middle of NOWHERE. The MCDONALDS is the ONLY fast food place in the county AND, closer than either one of the two whole "Grocery stores" where you can "buy" apples. You outa towners need to know "where" you are talking about.

Not another A_ _ hole tring to cash in on the weight loss. I know why JARRAD lost weight at SUBWAY, my god, they don't give you anything on their sandwhiches. ANYONE would loose weight. But someone will believe the MIC-DIET.

80 pounds? Big Deal. I just lost 100 by eating a Mexican tomato.
Go to Mexico and eat & drink the water, pounds will come off of you from both ends at the same time.

I wonder what it would cost to eat every meal at McDonalds? Quite a bundle I would imagine.

Look, Buddy, In QUINTON, the nearest PLACE to eat at all is McDonalds. The grocery store is all the way in Bottoms Bridge. Think of the gas, man
So did he put the weight on at McD's and lose it at McD's? What's the life expectancy in that town anyway?

Not totally salads. He would once in awhile eat a burger with his salads. He never ate the bun and never fries. Him losing weight eating at MCD's must have been the low carb type diet. Susanne Summers did the same thing. She would order a burger without the bun. Dr. Atkins Diet was based on the same principle; high fat low carbs.. Susan Summers had breast cancer and for some women it can come from to much fat in their diet.
Sometimes people can do everything to lose but never lose because they have a thyroid problem and don't know it.

"His inspiration came from his two children and from the story of a blind war veteran who rode a tandem bicycle cross-country."

That line of BS was for the Good Morning America crowd. The truth is, I warned Chris that if he did't lose the lard by our 10th anniversary I'd start banging the UPS driver.

But why EVERYDAY, EVERY MEAL at McDonalds!?

Is there no other convenient place to eat one of your three meals a day?

Were the other fast-food joints maybe a block or two too far away for you to walk to which is why you're a tub-of-lard in the first place?

Yes, i would recommend this. I have worked for Mcdonald's for over 20 years, and i agree, if you watch what you eat like he did, you can loose too. I'm 46, have three kids, and still only weigh 140.
