A man who ate only McDonald’s for 100 days has revealed he lost nearly 60 pounds on the fast-food diet.
Kevin Maginnis, 57, from Nashville, Tennessee, has been chronicling his weight-loss journey on TikTok after announcing in late February that he would be ordering breakfast, lunch, and dinner from the chain for the next three months.
Per the rules he set for himself, he was only allowed to eat half of what he ordered, but he had free reign to get whatever he wants, including dessert. He also adhered to eating just three meals a day without snacks and drinking water instead of soda.
Yesterday, on day 100 of his unorthodox challenge, Kevin showed off his remarkable transformation that saw him shedding 58-and-a-half pounds and even lowering his cholesterol.

When Kevin began his McDonald’s journey, he weighed in at 238 pounds, now, he is down to 179.5 pounds.
Speaking to the Today show, he said: ‘I feel amazing.’
Throughout his diet, he would share his rules on his TikTok account, where he boasts over 87,000 followers.
To drop the weight, the 57-year-old ate three meals a day, but cut the portions in half.
He also didn’t munch on any snacks and drank around ’80 to 90 ounces of water per day.’
Kevin revealed that nothing was off limits, noting that he munched on everything from chicken nuggets to fires and desserts.
And while many slammed his experiment for being ‘unhealthy,’ he revealed that according to his blood work results, he was even healthier than before.
He told the outlet that before beginning his journey, he was pre-diabetic, and is now in a normal range.
Kevin said he lowered his triglycerides level, which is a type of fat that circulates around your body, by 205 points, and his cholesterol went down 65 points.

At the 50-day mark, Kevin’s wife, Melody, decided to join him.
40 days in, she lost a whopping 17 pounds.
Now, that he has achieved his goal of shedding the weight, he has set other milestones to keep the weight off.
This includes working out and continuing to eat smaller portions.
‘[I plan to] increase the beast in me. We’re going to be doing an ice plunge. I’m going do a 100-foot rope climb,’ he told the outlet, adding that it’s his ‘personal Everest.’
While Kevin won’t be continuing his McDonald’s diet, he will be only eating three- quarters of his meals to maintain his weight.
And while the 57-year-old, who said he’s gone from French fries to fit guy,’ knows his method wasn’t exactly the best for brain health, he said it helped shed the weight.

‘Are there better micronutrients or macronutrients for brain health? Absolutely. But when it comes to getting rid of obesity, reduce the size of the meals,’ he told Today.
Maginnis’s challenge has reminded many people of the 2004 documentary Super Size Me, which chronicled Morgan Spurlock’s attempt to eat only McDonald’s food for an entire month.
Spurlock ate at the fast-food chain three times a day for 30 days. His physical and mental health rapidly declined, and he gained 24.5 pounds by the end of the experiment.
Maginnis was adamant that his version of the McDonald’s diet would prove that portion control is what matters when it comes to weight loss.
