The McLes diet

Les Sayer of Edmonton set out to teach his biology students to be critical thinkers. He explained to them that Morgan Spurlock's film Super Size Me expresses an opinion and is not an objective investigation. To do so he embarked on a diet that was similar to Spurlock's in that he ate exclusively McDonald's food, but much different in that it included exercise. The result: he lost 17 lbs.
"Overeating is bad for you, not getting enough exercise is bad for you. Blaming McDonald's for your expanding waistline is like blaming MasterCard for your overspending." -Les Sayer
