(CHICAGO) -- Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock showed the perils of eating nothing but McDonald's food in his 2004 documentary Super Size Me, but Joe D'Amico apparently never saw the movie -- because he's been eating Mickey D's three times a day as part of his training for running a marathon.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports D'Amico is set to run in the Los Angeles Marathon on March 20 after spending 30 days eating nothing but McMuffins, McNuggets, and other McDonald's menu items.
D'Amico tells the newspaper, "My wife told me I was crazy, but I love McDonald's and I love running, and this was a great way to combine the two."
D'Amico eats breakfast, lunch and dinner at McDonald's, but hasn't gained any weight because he runs 100 miles a week.
Filmmaker Spurlock famously gained 24 pounds and watched his health decline when he ate nothing but McDonald's for just 30 days.
