An Iowa schoolteacher says he lost 37 pounds by eating nothing but McDonald's fast food for 90 days, the Los Angeles Times reports.
 
John Cisna and his students at Colo-Nesco School District decided to challenge Morgan Spurlock's documentary "Super Size Me" about the dangers of eating fast food. Cisna and his students made their own documentary, which concluded the Golden Arches could be a great way to lose weight — if you choose fast foods wisely.
 
In comments to TV station KCCI, Cisna said he ate no more than 2,000 calories a day and tried to stick to the recommended dietary allowances for carbs, protein, and fat.

A typical breakfast included oatmeal, egg whites, and 1 percent milk for breakfast; lunches were usually salads; and for dinner he usually ate Big Macs and Quarter Pounders, as well as sundaes and ice cream cones.
 
He also exercised every day as well, walking 45 minutes a day. After three months, Cisna said he had shed 37 pounds.
 
He told KCCI that his experiment helped students take away a valuable lesson about personal responsibility: "We all have choices. It's our choices that make us fat not McDonald's."
