Minimize Me?

You'd think a strict diet of hamburgers would make you more supersized, right? Apparently not! This guy has been on a strict hamburger diet for over 90 days, and has lost over 60 pounds. Originally the goal was 50 pounds in 90 days, but he's since dropped 65lb in just over 90 days! Who would have thought Hamburgers could be so good for you?

Hello Billy!
I've got a story about a man who has been on a strict hamburger diet for 83 days. His name is Johan and has lost 60 pounds so far, the goal was 50 pounds in 90 days. It is a big thing in Sweden and he has a blog by the name of Minimize Me (instead of Supersize Me, of course) Johan was standing on the scale and it wrote out 280 pounds. He realized that if he wanted to see his children he had to do something. Now. He is a stubborn and strong-headed man and couldn't see himself eating Japanese sea weed or any other diet that you can find today. Johan also liked hamburgers. And it struck him he hadn't heard of a hamburger diet before.


A doctor has checked him since the start. A personal trainer has helped him work out and he has been given the food by Max Hamburger restaurants (, a Swedish fast food chain who put great effort in taking fat away from their menus. A scientist is right now thinking about writing a case of it to the leading medical journal in Sweden.

You can see pictures and read his blog Johan want to inspire more people to loose weight. Motivation beats the actual content of the diet is the key message. For it to really work for a man with two kids, house, full time job it must be easy. And Johan has proved it works.

Interesting. I wen't to the "My Food" section of this site and two things struck me. First, he's not JUST eating hamburgers. In fact, he's only eating one a day on most days (something called a "Max Slimburger"...sounds delicious). Second, he's starving himself with only 1,300 calories a day. No thanks.
