I Ate In-N-Out For 30 Days Straight. Here’s What Happened.
My name is Dustin Wang. I’m 20 years old, I go to the University of California, Irvine and I’m going to eat In-N-Out everyday for 30 days straight. I weighed in at 158 at the beginning of the diet. I’m sure I’ll gain some weight, but the real question is: will my love for In-N-Out fade away?
1. I must eat at least one In-N-Out meal per day.
2. I must order at least a two patty burger (Double Double or greater) with an order of french fries.
3. I have do to it for thirty days straight, no breaks in between.
What I ate: “4×4” cheeseburger, Animal Style fries and a 7UP.
How I feel: Starting off the first day with a bang with my first 4×4! The 4×4 is delicious! It’s like double the “Double Double,” making it quadruply good.
Day 1 Q&A
O: OC Native, D: Dustin Wang
O: Tell me a bit about yourself.
D: My name’s Dustin Wang. I’m 20 years old and I’m a student at UC Irvine. I’m a transplant from Virginia and came to California for college.
O: Why did you decide to take on this challenge?
D: I really love In-N-Out, so why not eat it for 30 days? I don’t think it’ll be too much of a challenge.
O: Why do you love In-N-Out?
D: I’ve been eating fast food since I was a kid. And on the East Coast, all the fast food places suck. The best thing we have out there is McDonald’s.
I first time I heard about In-N-Out was in an article online where this writer described In-N-Out as the best hamburger in the world. I can’t recall exactly what he said in the post, but he wrote a vivid description of the best, juiciest burger from the In-N-Out at the Las Vegas Strip.
I decided to come out to California for college and the first thing I did when I landed was drive from the airport to the nearest In-N-Out. I ordered a Double Double and Animal Style Fries and it was the most delicious thing I had ever eaten. I had no idea that fast food could be that good.
O: Do you think you’ll gain weight?
D: I think the real question should be, “How much weight will I gain?” I’m usually pretty healthy, I work out almost everyday and I’ll continue to do so.
What I ate: “3×3” protein style, Animal Style fries and a 7 UP. How I feel: Feeling pretty good. Ran two miles this morning. Protein style is a bit messy to eat, but definitely feels lighter compared to a regular bun. Fries are still fries, delicious.
What I ate: Double Double (with chillies and extra toasted bun), Animal style fries with chillies and a medium lemonade.
How I feel: I think I hit the point where In-N-Out stopped being something I look forward to. Feeling a little sluggish today.
What I ate: Double Double (with whole grilled onions, extra lettuce, extra tomato, chopped chillies and no cheese), well done fries and a medium Coke. How I feel: Today sucks. Definitely don’t want In-N-Out right now.
What I ate: Double Double (with whole grilled onions, chopped chilies and an extra toasted bun), with well done Animal Style fries and a medium Coke.
How I feel: You know how you get that satisfaction after eating something delicious? Yeah that’s gone.
What I ate: 3×3 (with no cheese, whole grilled onions, chopped chilies and extra toasted bun), well done french fries and a medium 7UP. How I feel: My body literally felt a little nauseous eating the fries. Burger tastes bad. Not juicy at all. Worst meal so far. Not sure if poorly made or if my body is rejecting the food.
What I ate: Animal Style 3×3 (with whole grilled onions, chilies and extra toasted bun), Animal Style fries with chilies and water.
How I feel: Meh meh meh.
What I ate: Double Double (with whole grilled onions, chopped chilies and extra toasted bun), well done french fries and water. How I feel: One more week left, I can’t believe it’s almost over. I’m looking forward to the end of this challenge…
What I ate: Double Double (with onions), french fries and water.
How I feel: Tomorrow is the last day. More excited than anything to immediately start a juice cleanse. As a survivor, I can tell you that fries are the hardest part of this challenge.
What I ate: Double Double (with whole grilled onions, chopped chilies and extra toasted bun), well done Animal Style fries and a Medium Coke. How I feel: AMAZING. I definitely don’t think I’ll be able to eat In-N-Out for a good while. I only gained two pounds through the 30 days. My final weight was 160 pounds. I will say, although In-N-Out is delicious every once in a while and it’s a high quality product, I would not eat it for a month straight again. Please don’t try this at home, kids.
