Super Size It For Me Please!

2009 May 3

Have you ever stopped to wonder what would happen if you strictly ate only Fast Food for every meal everyday of the week for an entire month?

Now… It’s not something I would ever consider… EVER!  (Unless it was from Wellness Way Cafe…)

However… For the wondering minds out there, someone else did wonder what would happen and so they decided to experiment with the idea and use themselves as a test subject.

They chose McDonald’s as the Fast Food of choice and could only eat it 3x a day, everyday. In this process, they decided to document everything on film including doctor visits, blood work, and eating it…

Definitely worth watching… As with everything I post here of course.

Here is a brief description that was posted about this video called Super Size Me.

Super Size Me is an Academy Award-nominated 2004 documentary film, directed by and starring Morgan Spurlock, an American independent filmmaker.

It follows a 30-day time period (February 2003) during which Spurlock lives and eats exclusively on McDonald’s fast food and stops exercising regularly.

The film documents this lifestyle’s drastic effects on Spurlock’s physical and psychological well-being and explores the fast food industry’s corporate influence, including how it encourages poor nutrition for its own profit.

During the filming, Spurlock dined at McDonald’s restaurants three times per day, sampling every item on the chain’s menu at least once. He consumed an average of 5,000 calories (the equivalent of 9.26 Big Macs) per day during the experiment.

Now… Hopefully you learned a little something and do not have the urge to run out and duplicate the experiment on yourself. Not recommeded.

Could you imagine if everytime someone asked you if you wanted it super sized you had to say YES and eat it all? uughh… my belly hurts just thinking about it.

Did you notice that his girlfriend was a Vegan Chef? Go figure… He chose the exact opposite of that lifestyle with this one… But she did nurse him back to health afterward…

To Your Health and Well-Being,
