I recently discovered that McDonald’s is on Uber Eats and my life hasn’t been the same since.

Feeling peckish? Double cheeseburger in 10.

Could do with some grub? No problem – Big Mac meal at your door with minutes.

It’s a dangerously convenient service and I kind of hold them responsible for me putting on a little chub recently.

However, while I may be enjoying that beigey goodness a little too much at the moment, what I will say is that I couldn’t have it every day.

Too much of anything – no matter how good it is – is never a good thing, and yes, that includes McDonald’s.

I should try telling that to this next bloke, though, because he’s been on a food McBender for the ages, eating only McDonald’s for a month.

Oh, and get this, he actually managed to lose weight.

Ryan Williams, 29, decided to undertake the fast food diet to disprove the 2004 documentary Super Size Me – which sees Morgan Spurlock eat nothing but McDonald’s for 30 days and gain almost two stone.

But the Cheltenham postman thought the documentary gave a skewed version of the challenge so decided to prove it’s possible to get in shape in 30 days eating just Maccies.

He said:

“I’ve wanted to do this for a few years, but I never found the right time.

“But recently I saw an advert for 50 years of Big Mac, and it made me think that there’s quite a lot of negative feeling towards McDonald’s, with regards to it being unhealthy.

“Ever since I saw Super Size Me, I thought that the way he (Morgan Spurlock) did the experiment, was unfair.

“He ate 5,000 calories a day and didn’t do any exercise, I didn’t feel like it was a surprise he became so unhealthy.”

However, whereas Spurlock supersized each of his meals to increase the calories content, Ryan never ate more than 2,500 per day, and while Spurlock made a point of never working out, the postal worker went to the gym everyday at 4am.

I mean that’s probably why he as able to get so shredded.

Suppose the gym bit is quite important to the story.

In terms of what Ryan ate, he’d spend £20 a day and eat everything on the menu at least once.

He began the month eating 2,500 calories per day – the recommended calorie intake for a male adult – but dropped down to 2,300 by the end of the second week.

In the final two weeks of the challenge, he dropped his calories slightly further, depending on how his weight and body fat index were performing.

Ryan added:

“It’s obvious that calories are quite important, but the average Joe doesn’t always know how to balance the recommended calorie intake with staying in shape.

“I’m not suggesting that eating just McDonald’s is a healthy way of living, but I wanted to show that it’s purely a calorie game, as opposed to the types of food you eat.”

By the end of this supersized month he was one stone two lbs lighter than when he began, while getting his body fat down from 10.85 per cent to 7.59 per cent.

That means he lost just over two percent of his body fat, compared to Spurlock who gained two stone.

Ryan said:

“I weighed 14st 2lbs at the start of the challenge and 13st at the end. But my days throughout the challenge were very long.

“Prior to the challenge I was probably in the worst state I’d been in in a few years.

“My diet wasn’t great, I would eat a lot of food – about 5,000 calories – in a day, lots of biscuits and junk food, and I wasn’t going to the gym at all.

“So for me, this challenge was partly about what I could do to help myself get back to that, whilst also having a bit of fun.”

“It just goes to show that fast food is not necessarily the devil,” he said.

If you want to see how he did it in further detail then you can check out his YouTube video below:

This story is encouraging for someone like me because I thought I’d have to give up Maccies to get back in shape.

Now I don’t have to.

I’m just kidding – you should definitely avoid trying this at home.

I really can’t imagine any health professional advising someone to do this diet, unless they had a death wish.
