L.A. Marathon Runner Joe D'Amico's Training Diet: McDonald's
In just 4 days Joe D'Amico (McRunner) will run the LA Marathon after spending 30 days eating nothing but McDonald's fast food while training.
He's raising money for Ronald McDonald House charities with this publicity stunt, which is great, but is eating nothing but McDonald's while training for a marathon sending a good message about health and fitness?
On the McRunner Blog, Joe says that he has noticed no difference in his energy levels while on his all fast food diet and he was able to run two back to back 100 mile weeks. However, he has avoided large fries and Big Macs when choosing his daily menu.
McRunner's Sample Daily Meal Plan
1/2 bagel with strawberry preserves
bagel & egg sandwich
fruit & yogurt parfait with 2 packs of granola
small orange juice
grilled chicken snack wrap (chipotle)
side salad with italian dressing
bucket of coke
grilled chicken sandwich with bbq
small french fries
oatmeal, no brown sugar
2 chocolate chip cookies
Will McRunner cause people to justify eating at McDonald's more than they already do?
