It still won't make me buy their awful piece of trashy food.


>_>; you're a Mcdonalds person?

I'm a no fast food person. Thank Super Size Me!

You do realize his problem was that he ate at Mcdonalds everday for like a month.

If you ate anything for every meal for a month you'd get sick.

Plenty of good reasons to not eat fast food... but supersize me is a bad reason.  It was just some guy who was willing to risk his life for some publicity.

It's not about his 30 day goal.

He gave a lot of other information and statistic that showed how unhealthy fast food is.

I also had to do a research about childhood obesity after watching the movie at school and I learned a lot more information about it.

And even one fast food meal per week is way too much.

Yeah.  Once or twice a month is what you'd want to aim for... for the average person.

Of course the real issue with nutrtion is that everyone is different and everyone has different body chemistries.

Really, your body will tell you the right amount to eat of anything... if you listen to it.

This is stuff pretty much EVERBODY already knows.  He just wanted to harp on a point, make a movie that'd make him some money and set his girlfriend up for a cook book.

It'd be like if some healthy guy who runs marathons decided to smoke cigarrettes for a month and to stop running to see the health effects.  It'd be negative.... very.   People know that.

Most people just don't care though.

Some people think it's okay to eat fast food as long as you excercise regularly. Those people don't know.

Or stupid enough not to ask questions when they see things like Supersize Me.

Fast food isn't good for you but it isn't the devil it's made out to be either (well except the ridiculous things like the double down).

I can't imagine many people like that existing considering how heavily mentioned this stuff is... the government and pretty much everybody else goes way out of the way to try and explain this stuff to people.

Haha the double down... man I couldn't believe that existed the first time I saw the commercial... that and the weird almost sexual way the one guy was referring to the chicken... I like how they refer to it as a sandwhich... you need bread!

I wouldn't eat one of those for free.

I tried to eat one once and failed...bad.  A buddy ate two on a dare (one grilled, one fried) and you could hear his heart screaming.

Yeah... i tried that once with a Baconator... didn't even get like halfway through before i threw the thing out. 

Another time my friend and I tried to eat one of those hungryman "A pound of food!" meals.

Took me like a week to get through it.  This reminds me I gotta find a solution to my current problem of my new job being in the middle of nowhere with nothing but an Arbys, Wendys and non-food selling target in the area.  Well and a Dollar tree... good luck finding healthy food there.

I can't imagine many people like that existing considering how heavily mentioned this stuff is... the government and pretty much everybody else goes way out of the way to try and explain this stuff to people.

Actually, the government itself does not really do anything to fight fast food. Why would they?

"In 1970, Americans spent about $6 billion on fast food; in 2000, they spent more than $110 billion. Americans now spend more money on fast food than on higher education, personal computers, computer software, or new cars. They spend more on fast food than on movies, books, magazines, newspapers, videos, and recorded music - combined."

It's a question of money.

Except... the government does.

The government spends hundreds of millions of dollars to put out healthy eating commericals and other campaigns.  I mean, who else do you think puts that stuff out?

If people actually did care, that money would still be spent.  It'd just be spent on heatlhy fast food.   I mean hell, if even a few more people cared do you know how easy it'd be to start a vegan/vegitarian fast food chain that offered healthy quick food?

I wanted to do that once, before I realized it'd probably just fail because burgers taste better.

Black Bean burgers can actually pretty tasty  (except they can be a little dry)

True, I eat them all the time, but I mean, convincing other people too... probably a tough sell.

Honestly I think the vegetarian hotdogs are leagues above regular hotdogs.

Chicken Nuggets too... just because you avoid the problem of "weird hardness".
