100 Followers! Woohoo! Thanks people! On to the documentary:
“Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock is on a mission to eat only McDonald’s food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner for thirty days. No exceptions. (That includes vitamins and aspirin.) He must eat every item on the menu at least once; and every time he is asked if he wants it “super sized,” he must say yes (although he won’t ask for it.) Further, he will limit his exercise to only the amount of walking per day of the average American.”
When you think about the plot of this documentary however naive it seems, in the same way it is ugly. This quite shocking film shows exactly how bad McDonald’s and junk food can be on your system. After filming the initial 30 days he had suffered a lot. He started to get heart problems, weight issues and everything that comes along.
Among all of the food documentaries this one made the most dust rise up. After this, McDonald’s reduced it portion sizes, especially in Texas where they had super super Size. They also introduced salads witch was unheard of before that. Even though he has done harm to himself, the author of the documentary proved a point and he certainly did a good job, considering all the changes that happened. It also shows that some things can be changed with images rather than politics, even though everyone knows the whole junk food industry is a political issue.
I would like to hear from you about junk food and it's impact on people. Do you think the problem can be solved?
P.S. I usually don't do documentaries but I believe this is one that you should certainly watch!
