In case you haven’t heard, McDonald’s is in serious trouble. Sales at their stores have been declining for seven straight quarters, as they face more competition while Americans ditch their food for healthier alternatives. So just how low could one corporation stoop to bring back their customers? They could start by paying a teacher to travel to schools across the country, while shilling their products to young minds.
John Cisna is a science teacher from Iowa who is currently spreading his “McDonald’s Diet” plan to 90 different high schools and colleges. The fast food giant made him a company ambassador and started paying for his time and travel expenses, after he decided to form a diet plan that would help him lose weight by “eating nothing but McDonald’s for breakfast, lunch and dinner for 90 days straight.” He’s trying to teach students that it’s not where or what you eat that leads to obesity. It’s simply a matter of how much you eat. He wants you to know that you can cut your waistline “while still eating the foods you love, like Big Macs and Hot Fudge Sundaes.”
While that is undoubtedly true to a large extent, it ignores the fact that fast food is designed to be addictive. The people who eat it don’t gain weight because they eat it selectively. They gain weight because they can’t stop eating it. He also doesn’t realize that obesity isn’t the only health problem that can be caused by fast food. McDonald’s can also utterly destroy your gut flora in as little as 10 days of regular consumption. Even if Cisna loses weight, somehow I doubt he’s going to be a happy camper after eating fast food for 3 months.
