Fit Friday-Think Twice Before you "Super Size"
In SUPER SIZE ME, filmmaker Morgan Spurlock unravels the American obesity epidemic by interviewing experts nationwide and by subjecting himself to a “McDonald’s only” diet for thirty days straight. His Sundance award-winning feature is as entertaining as it is horrifying as it dives into corporate responsibility, nutritional education, school lunch programs and how we as a nation are eating ourselves to death. He consumed an average of 5,000 cal (the equivalent of 9.26 Big Macs) per day during the experiment.
