I looked at the predator program thread briefly.
His diet is not ideal because he does not consume carbohydrates.
Carbohydrates enhance performance and fat loss. Humans are not carnivores. The hormone leptin which regulates body weight in humans is heavily influenced by carbohydrates. That alone should have stopped him from even attempting that diet.
His training plan also sucked. It didn't contain enough volume or any form of a progression scheme.
Unlike his program, my plan is well thought out. I'm out of shape, and I haven't trained in a year, but I know what I'm doing.
So, you may be wondering why I choose McDonalds...
The main reason is that I don't have too much time anymore, and I can't be bothered to cook food anymore. I choose McDonalds because their food has a set amount of calories and macronutrients. Since they are a mega corporation, they standardize all of their food to the gram in order to control cost. I know every time that i buy food from them that I'm buying X amount of protein, fat, and carbs.
Despite what people think, McDonalds food has a lot of micronutrients. The 3 mcdoubles I ate had 600mg of calcium in their buns. Calcium is a fat loss supplement. The beef and cheese had 3g of CLA which is another fat loss supplement.
