Meet Chris Coleson, a Richmond, Virginia, businessman who lost 86 pounds on the "McDonald's Diet""
He said the idea was born out of his wife's skepticism at his ability to lose weight.
"I told her I could lose weight eating anywhere," he said. "I told her I could do it eating at McDonald's."
Determined to prove his point, Mr. Coleson started eating two meals a day at the Golden Arches (he doesn't eat breakfast) and saved his receipts in a journal. He saved most of his salad containers, too. In another nod to the McDonald's diet, Mr. Coleson changed his license plate from "OLDNFAT" to "MCFIT."
