Seriously?

I'm not saying I believed the film, I mean there were some truths about it. The film was obviously targeting obesity and obese people in the US. Since Morgan is pointing his finger at the fast food business for making people obese, he is trying to make them look bad.

A pound of bacon and 6 eggs?!?!??...............wow

I'm not sure if you would have had coverage of this in the US, but a teacher here in Canada (Biology I think) went on the same diet as the guy in Supersize me and LOST weight, (17lbs?) and maintained a healthy blood pressure etc. The difference was, he exercised like a fiend throughout. His point was that as long as you burn off the calories you take in, you will be OK weight wise.

Yes I recall reading that study as well Alix.

If memory serves, Morgan was an active guy before he started this test, but as soon as he started then he stopped all exercise.

So you do bascially get your money's worth of nutrients and fats, but you need to keep them balanced with excercises.

I believe in the fillm he reduced his exercise to that of an "Average New Yorker". Meaning he walked X number of miles a day, and then took cabs if he went over on his "Daily Mileage".

My 14-year old niece who's struggling with excess weight issues saw the movie and got permanently turned off by McDonald's and similar chains. Good for her.

It has been only a show luring you interested eating them!!
Ordinary MAC has sold beef stuff in their hamburgers. I donít like them due to saturated oil and scrap beef in their stuff, just obtained a suggestion from a doctor ďPleased stay away from cholesterolĒ Only sometime, Iíve teased them.

In my near residence, If I rush till nothing to eat, Iíll probably select the convenient store selling an appetizing ham for that meal.

I usually go there like what once a few months. As a person who knows cooking I like to cook my own food, but if I'm on the road for like 4 hours then fast food is unavoidable unless I make my own food and make a mess in my car
