McDonald's Diet?

I find this hard to believe . . . .    CNN.com reports on people who lost weight eating only McDonald's. 

One person went so far as to make her own independent film about dieting at McDonald's. "Me and Mickey D" follows Soso Whaley, of Kensington, New Hampshire, as she spends three 30-day periods on the diet. She dropped from 175 to 139 pounds, eating 2,000 calories-a-day at McDonald's.

"I had to think about what I was eating," Whaley said. "I couldn't just walk in there and say 'I'll take a cinnamon bun and a Diet Coke.' ... I know a lot of people are really turned off by the whole thought of monitoring what they are eating, but that's part of the problem."

Somehow I don't see McDonald's becoming the new Subway and I really wonder what some of these people were eating before ther started the McDonald's Diet. [bm]
