This YouTuber Ate McDonald's for a Week and Lost 5 Pounds

This YouTuber Ate McDonald's for a Week and Lost 5 Pounds


A man who ate McDonald’s for a week straight has revealed that he actually lost weight instead of gaining it. British YouTuber Mike Jeavons ate at the fast food chain for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for seven days, which set him back a pretty $140.

While this may sound a little like Super Size Me — filmmaker Morgan Spurlock’s 2004 documentary — this Briton says he did not “gorge” on McDonald’s. At the end of the experiment, Jeavons claims to have lost five pounds. Spurlock, who ate about 5,000 calories at the Golden Arches every day for 30 days, gained a drastic 25 pounds.

“I wanted to do things differently and see if I could be happy, full, have a varied diet on McDonald’s, and I kind of proved that that’s a difficult thing to do,” Jeavons said on YouTube. “McDonald’s isn’t intended to be eaten three meals a day, seven days a week, but now we know.”

By day three, Jeavons started having stomach problems because of all the fatty foods he was consuming. According to the U.K.’s Mirror, much of this was also attributed to the amount of diet soda he was drinking.

“To keep everything in line with the recommended daily allowances, I had to save calories where I could,” he said, according to the outlet. “Because I was eating so much fat, zero-calorie drinks were a savior, though they did make me feel ill after a while.”

The 33-year-old ate everything from hotcakes and McMuffins to salad and Big Macs from March 21 to March 28. After the challenge was complete, Jeavons didn’t want McDonald’s at all, but says he had some random cravings.

“I’m just so sick of it,” he said on YouTube. “I don’t want any more even though I really do. I felt like I had cravings, but I wouldn’t even put it even remotely close to what I imagine someone with an addiction kind of feels.”

Now, the vlogger eats “regular” things like porridge, pasta Mug Shots with fruit, and lasagna. But he’s still testing out other fads and products on his YouTube channel, including the Slimming World diet, Kinder Surprise drinks, and a cat face massager. Yes, you read that correctly. If you’re interested in taking the weeklong McDonald’s challenge yourself, here are the chain’s healthiest menu items.


Woman ate nothing but McDonald’s for five days and didn’t gain a single pound

A WOMAN who ate nothing but McDonald's food for five days claims she didn't put on a single pound.

Writing for Cosmopolitan, Danielle Tullo told how she normally only indulged in the fast food treat when she was "drunk, hungover or in a rush".

Deciding to turn her "occasional McDonald's rendezvous into a full-blown love affair" for a short-term experiment, she spent five days tucking into four cheeseburgers, 10 chicken nuggets, two milkshakes and a lot of fries.

"Even though it's not healthy to eat all the time, I love McDonald's — the crispy golden fries, the chocolate milkshakes topped with whipped cream and a cherry," she wrote.

Danielle admitted that the 2004 documentary Super Size Me, in which filmmaker Morgan Spurlock ate three meals a day at the chain for 30 days and piled on nearly 25 pounds, put her off regularly dining at Maccas.

She consulted a nutritionist prior to her fast food stint, and claims the experience "changed everything she thought about dieting".

MONDAY

Breakfast:
Large coffee, Egg White Delight McMuffin

1 Grilled Chicken Snack Wrap

MOOD: Sad/Hungry

Danielle decided to make the most of the healthier options on offer at the chain and, donning her golden arch earrings, kick-started day one of her meal plan with a large coffee and Egg White Delight McMuffin (only available in the US).

She admitted she felt like she should have been hungover as she tucked into the meal, noting: "There's something unglamorous about holding a McDonald's bag with grease stains seeping through it."

The lack of beer goggles also made her more aware of the ingredients, which included "extra lean" Canadian bacon with "concerning white spots".

TUESDAY

Breakfast: Large coffee, Egg White Delight McMuffin
Lunch:

1 Grilled Chicken Snack Wrap

MOOD: Bored/Restless

For lunch Danielle opted for a Snack Wrap with grilled chicken and a "sad-looking" side salad (note no chips).

By the evening she felt "hungry, frustrated and tired" and strayed from the meal plan by picking up a McDonald's Sausage Burrito (which cost $1 - less than a quid).

She repeated her meal plan the following day (indulging in two sausage burritos for dinner) before caving in on Wednesday and grabbing a traditional Egg McMuffin for breakkie.

Danielle also adapted her lunchtime Snack Wrap to contain crispy chicken and picked fries over salad.
