482-Pound Man Endorses the Carl's Jr. Weight-Loss Plan

Posted By on Thu, Dec 8, 2011 at 2:30 PM

  • Michael Moore and the president, for some reason.

A 482-pound Antioch resident credits Carl's Jr. with helping him slim down. A man named Michael Moore claims that eating Carl's Jr. every day last year helped him to lose weight -- around 100 pounds.

As Erin Sherbert writes on our sister blog, The Snitch, after he hit 576 pounds in 2010 Moore decided to try an all-meat diet. Enter Carl's Jr.:

Moore told SF Weekly that for the last year, he has eaten nothing but plain meat patties which he ordered from -- of all places -- the Carl's Jr. by his house. The next obvious question is why Carl's Jr. and not Subway, which gained attention after 34-year-old Jared Fogle lost 245 pounds in one year by eating Subway sandwiches.

"Subway is not close enough," Moore tells us, laughing. "Carl's Jr. is right by my house -- and it's fantastic."

Currently, Moore is receiving no compensation from Carl's Jr. (Or Hardee's!) There's much more about all this here, in Sherbert's report.
