What kind of question is that? Um, well, I'm no biologist but I'll give the question a shot.

You're aware that the body's attempt to maintain homeostasis adjusts hunger and metabolism, driving a person who has lost weight to return to their pre-diet/ prior weight, for example. And McDonalds, as we know, isn't the healthiest thing to eat on a regular basis. If the body was to get used to taking up that much um... "unhealthy" substances, it could be very dangerous to the individual, but because your body isn't used to it, you'll get seriously sick because of your body's inability to maintain a lower, more regular level of sugar/ fat/ etc. intake. It's like an overload and if your body can't deal with it (can't maintain homeostasis), it breaks down...

There was this guy that attempted to eat nothing but McDonald's food for I don't remember how long, though I think that it was ninety days. There was a movie about it called "Super-Size Me." My school made us watch it...

Yup a month... according to the thread starter. That seems somewhat more reasonable anyway.

Haha, yeah... and he had rules too. He had to eat McDonalds for every meal (3 times a day), try each item on the menu at least once and (I think), if they asked if he wanted it supersized, he had to say yes.

I'm not sure if he finished all thirty days (did he? anyone know?)... though I remember his health being seriously messed up...

I fear what eating 3 McDonalds meal a day for one week can do to my health. I dare not entertain the thoughts of enduring a month of that...
