Documentary director Morgan Spurlock features as the guinea pig in this film about the fast food industry. Inspired by America’s obesity epidemic, he goes on a diet of McDonald’s three times a day for thirty days straight in order to examine the effects of fast food consumption on the body and mind. The effects of the trial are harrowing: His body mass increases by 13%, his cholesterol levels skyrocket, fat accumulates in his liver, and he experiences mood swings and loss of libido. Super Size Me will completely change the way you think about eating and living.
Super Size Me accomplishes the feat of being both entertaining and horrifying. It investigates how the fast food culture in American schools, corporations and politics is driving nationwide obesity. In between meals, Spurlock drives across the country and interviews a host of health and nutrition experts, lawyers, school workers, and a surprisingly trim man who has eaten over 19, 000 Big Macs yet maintains a healthy cholesterol level. We also meet an industry lobbyist who states that consumers need to be educated about nutrition and perplexingly proclaims that “we’re part of the problem and part of the solution”.
The film investigates the industry’s political lobbying and advertising campaigns. We learn about some of the disturbing strategies McDonald’s uses to acquire customers. It is particularly effective at getting children hooked at an early age through mediums they love, such as birthday parties, toys, clowns and playgrounds. In certain areas, the McDonald’s playground is the only one the community has. In one of the most shocking scenes of Super Size Me, Spurlock shows pictures of Jesus, George Washington and Ronald McDonald to a group of first graders, and Ronald is the only one that all of them can identify.
Spurlock is a likeable host, both witty and engaging. Despite his criticism of the fast food industry, he does not place the blame solely on corporations, and at one point asks the rhetorical question of where personal responsibility stops and corporate responsibility begins. Towards the end of the experiment, he is a changed man. The exuberant and healthy host we meet at the beginning of the film has transformed into a puffy, weary and depleted man. He has experienced first-hand the damaging effect of junk food on the nation. All in all, Super Size Me is a fascinating and informative insight into the fast food industry and its link to the American obesity epidemic.Tips on which receiver to throw to madden 15 Marble set where you put a marble in it and it does tricks What causes indoor plants to have brown tips what does old soul mean How to make a ladder in minecraft what does perpendicular mean How to capture in mancala? what does intimidation mean what does onb mean what type of government does china have How to turn off tips windows 8.1 What psychological tricks do we use on ourselves to protect our beliefs what does the bible say about anxiety what does off market mean on zillow what does it mean when you smell smoke How to pay waitresses that don't declare tips what does milkshake mean in the song How to talk to anyone 92 little tricks for big success in relationships read online what does leaps mean what does a usb-c port look like How do pizza drivers report tips what does rn bsn mean How long to roast vegetables Sonic riders zero gravity how to do s tricks Fbi tricks for getting what you want what does aristocrat mean Tricks how to become hilton honor platinum What are some tricks on google what does sitcom mean what does mija mean in english What are pending tips on instacart what color does purple and yellow make What does tips training stand for How to make a cappuccino what does tod mean what does it mean when someone is septic what does taliban want How to find missing side of triangle How to make homemade acrylic nails without tips what does congeniality mean what are the bases of dna what does distracted mean How to make tomato soup?
