    I was on his website today, and looked up his sponsers, they all looked like normal athletic sponsers until I saw the golden arches with "I'm lovin it" at the bottom, so I clicked on it and Mickey D's website came up, but it was in Norwegian...anyway, here's a link to his sponsers page....just thought it was funny, this thread can be deleted as its not exactly helping anyone...

    I think it's funny, too. A World Class athlete sponsored by the makers of the worst possible food EVER.

    IMO Mcdonald's isn't that bad if you just eat the burgers and stay far away from fries and soft drinks. Bread, meat, lettuce, sauce, cheese all good stuff.

    And don't tell me that the meat is voodooized human flesh and that the bread is made of recycled toilet paper. I'ts just bread and meat, really.
    Allright for bulking.

    That's not what's written on my Big mac...

    EDIT: I checked the MCdonald webpage to be sure, here are the ingredients of the beef patty:
    Beef Patty:
    100% pure USDA inspected beef; no additives, no fillers, no extenders.

    That's right folks. I have to agree it tastes rather dry, but MCd claims there's no flour, no grounded alien limbs and not even spices in it. I kinda believe them because I think they're better to say the truth, seeing how many people are trying to sue them for ridiculous reasons. Call me naive.

    On the beef note, in Australia they owned the trademark (yes they trademarked it) "100% Australian beef", and put it on their patties, so 100% Australian beef was just a trademark, not necessarily 100% Australian beef.

    Wow I just said beef a lot, I'm hungry.

    McD's - IMO the grilled chicken sandwich and salads, as well as the regular EggMcMuffin are good & healthy choices. I have no problem going there for lunch or breakfast and getting these items when I am on the road for work.

    I haven't eaten a BigMac in a few years, but I have to say I used to like the taste. Tremendous amount of salt and fat in that one though. Tangent: Here is a guy that has eaten almost nothing but Big Macs since 1972 http://www.wasteoftechnology.com/motw123.shtml

    Fast Food Nation is an interesting read for anyone interested in how the fastfood industry developed and has changed over the years.

    Yeah like the other guys in here hint, I don't believe them one bit. They just don't have a reputation of being an organization whose word you can depend on. But they're big enough I think to pay the FDA enough money to turn the other cheek about a lot of things. I think if every McD's establishment really used 100% beef, cows would be extinct. This place's hold over people is such that even AFTER that docudrama Super Size Me came out, showing how detrimental to health their food is, their sales went UP.

    Not saying Mcds is gourmet and or tastes good. I just tend to think people believe too much conspiracy theory nowadays. There is no black magic in Mcnuggets.

    Nobody taps two swamps to cast a big mac. Uber nerds will get this.

    I like MacDonalds every so often, even though it's shit, it still tastes pretty fucking good to me. I usually have it maybe once every 1-2 weeks. I work with a guy who eats the stuff religiously though and looks the part as well. He'll routinely eat a double 1/4 lber. combo (supersized) w/ a 1/4 lber on the side and a 10 piece macnuggets in one sitting, but he always gets Iced Tea because he says it has the lowest sugar content out of all the fountain drinks they offer, LOL! The guy is a walking contradiction, he says that fountain and bottled pop is bad for you yet he'll throw back a dozen CANS of coke in one 9 hour shift at work. He'll go on a two week bottled water stint but drink a case of beer and smoke a pack of cigarettes every night. He also does one set of dumbell curls every night and proceeds to tell me that he's been "working out" hard, and to top it off he ALWAYS claims that he NEVER gets sick but he's constanly bitching about feeling ill!!!

    Anyways, MacDonalds = BAD

    HAHAHAHA, that would certainly be justice. Did you hear that he proposed to her with an onion ring? That is just sad.

    Sonny that is a great story. Come to think of it, McDonalds really does have us brainwashed. I do think it is some sort of voodoo. The more I am reading about how unhealthy their food is for me, the more I am craveing it. I don't eat it often but you suckas are making me want it. Welcome to America!!!!! The worse it is, the more I want it.

    I have absolutely NO problem with people who like to indulge every once in a while, I also have no problem with people who avoid it like the plague. I train pretty hard and all joking aside, I eat pretty well also so If I want a fucking Big Mac on a Saturday afternoon, I'm gonna go for it!

    WHO'S WITH ME?
