I have to admit they are my favorite fries. And even still I don't eat them alot. Maybe 5 times a year, and that's pushing it.

(And that was still a gross experiment)

We just don't eat fast food. Ever. Dd (5 years old) has never set foot in McDonald's and won't until she's able to buy it herself. That stuff is poison. That fellow that did the video... he was in the hospital after he did his SuperSize Me documentary because after eating McDonald's for a month solid, he was in liver failure. 'Nuff said.

True enough... I guess I like picking on McD because it's a giant corporation that like to squash little ppl. I don't really like their policies when it comes to dealing with food. If they can find a loophole around it, they would.

Well duh that's his own idiotic fault. You're not supposed to eat it for every meal for a month.

I never eat at MD's but not because it is bad for me....just don't like anything they have. I do, however, indulge in many things that are "bad" for me but taste oh so good! I am afraid to say what fast food I do indulge in.......shhhhh it's Taco Bell.......

Yep to whoever said DUH! LOL. You need to do everything in moderation. And the dude in Supersize me didn't do ANYTHING at all. No exercise, just couch potato boy.

It's true but that's the whole part of the story. He let off exercising so he could pursue his theory when it comes to McD. I'm just amazed he could eat the entire menu from breakfast to dinner. Just thinking about it makes me sick. I don't know how he can do it all in the name of publicity.

I like the part where his GF is about to 'de-tox' him from eating McD. Hilarious!

I have knocked MD's for years but have to admit they have come up with some decent salads. I have had their Santa Fe chicken salad and I have to say I enjoyed it. Maybe they are repenting of their evil ways!
