    In the end it doesnt matter what you eat, its all about the calories. If your caloric burn is more than your intake then you will lose weight.

    As a matter of fact, it's possible to lose weight eating nothing but McDonald's food.

    A Diet for McDonalds fans:

    Choose one and only one item for each of 4 meals a day:

    Breakfast:
    Egg McMuffin
    Sausage Burrito
    Fruit and Maple Oatmeal

    Lunch
    Hamburger
    Cheeseburger
    Eggwhite Delight

    Dinner
    Filet o Fish
    McChicken Grilled
    McDouble
    Artisian Grilled Chicken Sandwich

    Evening
    Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad
    Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad

    Drink at least 10 8 ounce glasses of water or the equivalent per day.
    No alcohol.

    This averages out to be about 1300 calories per day, and you will lose weight if you follow the diet strictly.
    What if I skipped all the McDonalds and just went with straight alcohol?

    Seems healthier, and more fun.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    You can lose quite a bit of weight on a straight alcohol diet. I've done it before. Unfortunately, there's not a lot of nutritional value in bourbon and beer so after a week or so you generally get really sick.

    I'll add a vitamin and an occasional pack of Beer Nuts.

    Should be great.

    But they sure spammed some coupons (bogo) when that was happening. 2 subs for 8 bucks was a good deal.
    that was my point, mcdonalds as a health option is as fraudulent as jerry as a role model

    I'm losing weight at 2,000-2500 calories a day plus an hour + of serious exercise. My biggest concern about that diet is that I suspect it isn't enough protein to keep from losing muscle mass. Roughly 50% of my calories come from protein (250+ grams/day), and despite my workouts, I've still lost a little muscle weight (although I think it's a lot less muscle than I would have lost if I didn't do weight training plus eat high protein).

    Ever notice how people who lose large amounts of weight often still don't look quite look healthy or fit? It's because they did little to keep muscle mass, and although they have gotten much smaller, they have gone from big-fat to skinny-fat.

    Absolutely!

    But losing weight doesn't always mean "healthier". Thin people with terrible diets can often still have clogged up arteries, poor cardio-health, etc.

    You could still lose weight. More fun, yes, I don't know so much about "healthier".

    I've found ON! ("Optimum Nutrition") whey protein to be the best for protein:calorie ratio.

    Best price I've found here (if you get it and find better, let me know)

    https://www.amazon.com/Optimum-Nutri...2Bprotein&th=1

    Doesn't have all the creatine, etc, that many protein powders have.





    I've also heard about CLA (Conjugated Linolineic Acid) and HMB ("B-Hydroxy B-Methylbutyrate") as being great for retaining muscle mass while cutting weight and not having side effects, but (1) I can't speak to either point, (2) there's always a risk with "dietary supplements" not subject to FDA oversight.
