Carl's Jr.'s New Pitchman: 482-Pound Man

Contrary to what Supervisor Eric Mar might tell you, fast food needn't be awful for you. Bay Area man Michael Moore swears by his Carl's Jr.-only diet, which he says is largely responsible for helping him to shed almost 100 pounds in less than a year.

After hitting 576 pounds in 2010, the Antioch resident told SF Weekly that for the last year, he has eaten almost 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.”

See, dieting is convenient.
