Texas A&M Grad Lost 140 Pounds In College By Eating Chick-fil-A For A Year

Alton Ward, formerly a very big man from Denver, was one tubby guy in high school. He tipped (and probably broke) the scales at over three and a half bills. Two-Ton Alton weighed as much two average sized college guys holding a fat baby and a dead dog. He was hefty.

From Business Insider:

“All my life I knew I was big, and I always wanted to lose weight,” he said to Business Insider.

But he struggled to find a diet that worked for him.

“I tried all the diets,” he said. “Jenny Craig, Atkins, no carbs … juice diets, the lose 10 pounds in 5 days, all the different things, and none of it worked for me.

He obviously wasn’t doing no-carb right. I was a slim 240 and cut out carbs and dropped to 200 in the span of 5 months (while still drinking for two). Maybe fat Albert forgot bread was full of carbs.

Anyway, in conjunction with some appropriate weight training and cardio, tubs lost a person by eating Chick-Fil-A.

Ward had been eating Chick-Fil-A since he was a child, and knew it had healthy portions — so that was a good place to start. (It helped that there was a Chick-Fil-A on campus [Texas A&M].)

“When I got to college, I said, ‘okay. I love Chick-Fil-A, I already like Chick-Fil-A, let’s see if they have healthy options,” he said.

Chick-Fil-A is pretty expensive to eat every day but it is money well spent. According to this dude, the attraction with Chick-Fil-A is their reasonable portion size. So he explored Chick-Fil-A’s “healthier” options like their wraps and salads and the weight just fell right off.

I do have a few questions for this hammy fellow. For instance, I want to know if he just didn’t eat on Sundays. Did he ever splurge and get the chicken sandwich and how often did he have the fries? I love their waffle fries and I’ll bet they were tough for CC to avoid.

I just hope all this weight loss from eating fast food doesn’t turn our friend Alton into some hyper-sexual, kiddie loving monster. They don’t have fast food in the pen: Jared Fogle will attest to that.

Otherwise, good for Alton.
