Mike Jeavons adores fried chicken — so much that he wanted to do his own spin on the popular documentary, Supersize Me.

For those who are unfamiliar, it centered around a man consuming McDonalds for a total of four weeks.

But instead of committing and entire month, he decided to eat solely KFC for seven days.

While traveling to his local KFC on a daily basis, the 34-year-old spent $136 on the entire experiment — which is not bad if you ask me.



In addition, he had also dropped 2 pounds over the course of seven days consuming an average of just 2,000 calories per day.

And while KFC apparently helps with weight loss, it should be noted that due to his rich diet, his salt intake increased to 150 percent of his recommended dietary allowance while his fat intake increased to a massive 250 percent.

Reflecting on the past seven days, Mike shared:

“I love KFC and wanted to see if I’d still love it if it was all I ate for a week. After I stopped the experiment, the week after I felt constantly thirsty and had headaches. I also really missed KFC! It was a lot of fun eating all this naughty food. Every day I would be really looking forward to mealtimes! It’s great as an occasional treat, but not something I’d recommend eating every day! It was fun to do but I wouldn’t want to do it again!”
