An L.A. Marathoner Is Only Eating McDonald’s Leading Up To The Big Race

File this under worst ideas we’ve heard all day: According to LAist, a man training for the L.A. Marathon has decided to eat McDonald’s exclusively for the 30 day prior to the big race. Granted it’s for a good cause—Joe D’Amico is eating three square meals at McDonald’s in order to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House Charities—but if he knew what goes into those meals (see it here) and how many preservatives must go into keeping it from basically ever decomposing (see the chilling photos here) we think Joe, and his doctors would think twice about this gimmick.
