Mum keeps McDonald’s burgers in cupboard for 2 years – they look as good as new

A mum has been using her kitchen cupboards to store her McDonald’s takeaways for two years as part of an experiment.

Burgers and fries are among the junk food that has been carefully sorted into drawers by the obsessive nutritionist, with her daughter taking to social media to explain that it’s all part of research into food that never goes off.

Other grub she’s put into her kitchen filing system includes pizza, sausage rolls and Jaffa Cakes.

A video of the bizarre experiment has been uploaded by TikTok user@elifgkandemir , who said her mum was trying to encourage Brits to enjoy a healthier diet.

In the video, which is captioned “Still fancy that burger?”, she says: “This is my mum's food cupboard full of foods that never go off.

“My mum is a nutritionist helping to tackle obesity.

“These foods shown here are ultra-processed foods that 80% of the UK consume on a regular basis."

In a later video, Essex-based@elifgkandemirsays her mum isn’t trying to stop people enjoying the occasional junk-food binge, but she’s worried about our over-reliance on fast food.

"Most of this food she's been collecting over the last two years, so most of it is one to two years old,” she says.

"80% of the UK are now eating this diet, probably without knowledge of what they are eating.

“A recent documentary by BBC One titled What Are We Feeding Our Kids involved Dr Chris van Tulleken eating this kind of diet exclusively for a period of a month with devastating results.

“And though it is true, that you can have anything and everything in moderation, 80% of a person's diet should not be made up of these foods.

“No food is off-limits. My mum is simply trying to encourage people to make better food decisions and live a happier, healthier lifestyle.”

There have been numerous instances in the past where McDonald's food has withstood the test of time. The fast food giants say one reason for this is they remove a lot of the moisture that would normally cause burgers and the like to rot.

Doughnuts and garlic bread are also part of the experiment and have been given their own places within the kitchen cupboard filing system.

For the experiment on hisBBC show , Dr Chris increased his usual intake of 30% ultra-processed foods to 80% for four weeks. “It sounds extreme, but it’s the diet one in five people in the UK eats,” he said.

After the month was over, Chris reported poor sleep, heart burn, unhappy feelings, anxiety, sluggishness, and a low libido.

Buta personal trainer from Irelandrecently conducted his own experiment, posting on Facebook that he could eat a McDonald’s every day for two weeks and still lose weight.

Oisin Mulligan, from Athlone in Ireland, wanted to prove no strict diet was needed when it came to shedding the pounds.

He documented his journeys to his local Maccy D, where he ordered at least one item every day, and in the first 12 days he recorded that he’d lost 1.9kg.

He said it was all about the overall calorie count, and that a Big Mac was fine as long as it fitted within your daily calorie target.
