News? Check. Politics? Check. Music? Check. Random thoughts about life? Check. Readership? Ummm.... let me get back to you on that. Updated when I feel like I have something to say, and remember to post it.

The McDonald's Diet

In the "Of Human Interest" section of the paper, which contains interesting stories that aren't particularly important newswise, a woman was profiled who ate only McDonald's for a month, just like pseudo-documentarian Morgan Spurlock. She lost 37 pounds. She designed a diet of 1400 Calories, unlike Spurlock, who overate and didn't exercise in response to his higher caloric intake. (In a way, he planned the outcome of his documentary ahead of time.)

This story illustrates the obvious. The food served by a restaurant isn't bad, in and of itself. Even one of Hardee's huge burgers is fine as an occasional indulgence, or as an everyday meal for a construction worker burning an extra 1,000 Calories during his eight-hour shift.
