How To Live A Long And Healthy Life Eating ONLY McDonald’s

One dedicated McDonald’s fan reckons he’s cracked the code.

McDonald’s may be God damn delicious, but we all know full well we couldn’t live on a diet of meals from the Golden Arches alone, right? Right?

Wrong, apparently. Because some bright spark over in the US of A reckons they’ve come up with a fool-proof diet plan that means they can visit McDonald’s every day.

But before Morgan Spurlock (remember him?) and a whole bunch of health goons begin angrily shaking celery in our direction, just hear us out.

Because, as it turns out, not even the most ardent of McDonald’s fans would be able to exist on a strict diet of cheeseburgers, fries and a few McFlurries thrown in for good measure.

No, as bgr.com reports, a Quora user by the name of Jonathan Brill has come up with a way of existing purely off McDonald’s menu items and, when you hear it all, it kind of sounds dull.

“You can buy grilled chicken, salads without dressing, fruit, dairy (without added sugar), and a variety of meat-based, low sugar breakfast dishes,” he explains.

“If you go easy on the buns, it would be possible for you to get your protein, vitamins, minerals, and water every day, with close to zero sugar, or at the very least, well under the new recommendation by the World Health Organization of 25g a day (of course the recommendation for Americans is twice that).”

Ronald McDonald in his element.

Well, jeeze, Jonathan thanks for sucking the fun out of this little scenario faster than Marlon Brando on a chocolate milkshake.

Still, it was nice to dream for a while at least.
