Losing weight by eating at McDonald's?

McDonald's just has to be loving all the attention they're getting.  First some goofball spends 30 days eating nothing but McDonald's food and then making a movie about how it made him sick and he put on 30 pounds.  Super Size Me has to be one of the dumbest "documentary" films ever made.

Now people are setting out to prove that it's possible to eat healthily at McDonald's.  Merab Morgan of Raleigh, NC spent 90 days eating only at McDonald's and lost 37 pounds.  Another woman, Soso Whaley of Kensington, NH, spent three 30-day periods eating at McDonalds.  She dropped 36 pounds, from 175 to 139, and has made her own film, "Me and Mickey D" about it.  Get full details from the AP story People Try to Lose Weight at McDonald's.

A shocking revelation:  it's not the products on the menu, but rather the choices one makes from the menu that determine whether eating fast food will be harmful to your health.  Can we put the "evil corporations making us fat" arguments to rest now?  Please?
