482-Pound Man Endorses the Carl's Jr. Weight-Loss Plan

Posted By on Thu, Dec 8, 2011 at 2:30 PM

  • Michael Moore and the president, for some reason.

A 482-pound Antioch resident credits Carl's Jr. with helping him slim down. A man named Michael Moore claims that eating Carl's Jr. every day last year helped him to lose weight -- around 100 pounds.

As Erin Sherbert writes on our sister blog, The Snitch, after he hit 576 pounds in 2010 Moore decided to try an all-meat diet. Enter Carl's Jr.:

Moore told SF Weekly that for the last year, he has eaten 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."

Currently, Moore is receiving no compensation from Carl's Jr. (Or Hardee's!) There's much more about all this here, in Sherbert's report.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
