    :eek2: I seriously doubt that I've eaten 1,000 McDonald hamburgers in the past 60 years.

    hmmm, I think I may have an interesting question for the OT developing. I will say that during different periods of my life I can track trends.

    in 1998 I ate at least 340 Whoppers
    in 1989-2011 I am sure I ate at least 500 Subway subs
    I can be sure there are 300+ big macs in there and I know the biggest count over my entire life would be the Filet-O-Fish. It definitely doubles or triples those lifetime numbers.

    In the last 25 years I have eaten exactly ZERO Big Macs.

    In my entire life, I think I might have eaten one, about 40 years ago. It was bought for me.

    I was trying to do some of the math...

    25,000 double-layer Big Mac burgers...say....1/2 lb. or so each = 12,500 lbs of beef consumed.

    I would think his digestive system would resemble most septic tanks at this point. :eek2::lol:

    Diarrea will keep a man skinny.

    BTW, I think your math may be off a bit, I would guess there may be 1/4# per of meat per Big Mac.

    That's a whole lot of something that really isn't anything special.

    Why would you keep track of something like this?

    I'm not sure I've eaten 25,000 of anything including individual french fries or potato chips. Maybe kernels of corn.

    I read somewhere that if you eat all the plain (unsalted, no butter) popcorn you can and have one Big Mac a day you will lose weight at an astounding rate. It actually makes sense to me.

    I just don't like popcorn that much, or Big Macs or I'd give it a try....:lol:

    As long as you consume less than 1800 calories per day, then you'll absolutely lose weight. The resting/non mobile human body needs 1800 calories per day just to function (breathing, circulation, digestion).

    Isn't that dependent upon height (and other factors)?

    Yes. The 1800 (some say 1500) was the "average" or norm according to exercise physiologists. Obviously, other factors will cause abnormal behavior...like a thyroid condition.

    Agreed. That's why I think the popcorn diet would work.
