These stars are for making my entire health and fitness class crave a big mac.

According to a biomed researcher I know, making any wild change in your diet suddenly would cause a good chunk of these ill effects on your body. Though this is rather entertaining regardless.
Yeah. I did appreciate that he addressed that in the movie, and showed a guy who ate McDonald's every day for decades, but was still healthy.

I usually only eat McDonald's while traveling. This movie made me want to eat at McDonald's just to spite that duesh bag, Morgan Spurlock.
Don't worry, I thought the spelling looked weird too. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Duesh

The best part of this whole movie is the little kid answering the "Can you tell me who this is?" question with "George W. Bush"

He couldn't finish that value meal without puking.
I'd like to see what effects this would have on a person without a delicate vegan constitution
ps Super High Me was better.
Yeah, it wasn't so much the value meal, as the 30 or so that came before it, without any other healthy food. And if you want to see the effects on a person who eats it every day without impediment, then watch the movie, because that is in there.

This is the asshole that made them replace Super Size with Large Size. The guy puked after eating one Quarter Pounder, and his wife is a Vegan Chef, which I guess means she does nothing since Vegan food requires no preparation or ingredients past raw plants. What is she really good at washing and cutting up plants?
Have you ever tried to eat a Quarterpounder? I regularly eat fast food and I think those are shit. Of course I have the common sense to stop before I get to the point where I would vomit.
Vegan =/= Raw Food Diet
The movie even shows her cooking food you moron.
I eat Quarter Pounders all the time with ranch dressing, they are delicious.
I just watched that scene. For starters, it's a double quarter pounder with cheese, which is 760 calories all on its own. To put that into perspective, I'm about the same size as Spurlock (6'2", 180 lbs) and my average meal is around 400 to 450 calories.
The double quarter pounder plus super-size fries and super-size coke are a combined ~1,800 calories. That's roughly the amount that I eat in an entire day; four times what I eat in one sitting. I'm confident that I'd puke too.
Thank you takewithfood.
I don't want to offend anyone here that might be overweight, I know how hard it is to get into a diet & exercise routine and stick with it. But just do it. Something in particular allowed me to stick with it this time) basically the feeling that I'm getting too old to procrastinate on things) but the important thing is that it's been totally worth it. Also "The Hacker's Diet" is a good book if you think like an engineer.
It's okay, I still found it. And yeah, I second any encouragement to get into a healthier lifestyle. It really isn't as hard as people make it out to be - it's as easy as you want to make it. Every little lifestyle change is worth it, no matter how small.

Great message. I wasn't really incensed by the whole McDonald's thing as much as I was with the public school cafeteria food. I went to a highschool where every goddamn thing was fried and a person ate chocolate pudding as a healthy alternative. The worst part about it was that despite them deep frying and salting up the food, it still tasted like SHIT. If I have to eat shit, I'd rather it at least be a radish. But then again, there weren't many alternatives because we were confined to the campus and discouraged from bringing our own food (drug sniffing dogs kept going crazy over food left in lockers, turning it into a policy). That stuff pisses me off right there.
And also his fucking wife. Every time she talks, pretending to be some kind of tortured saint with a hundred wicker baskets full of guilt and disdain to share with the world, I just want to reach over and slap her. I got nothing against vegans, but god do I hate the preachy hippie ones.
There are vegans who aren't the preachy hippie kind?
A good friend of ours is a vegan, and she's pretty rad. She is also always bringing us some kind of vegan cupcakes or pies or similar treats. They are always excellent.

Morgan Spurlock is a mega-douce of epic proportions, of the "OH LOOK AT ME, AREN'T I JUST WACKY AND WHIMSICAL" variety.
I grew up in a fat (but not really obese) family and I was fat. When seeing really obese people it never even entered into my head to judge them, I just figured they had a bad lot in life or whatever.
I'd say I was about 50 pounds over but I am well on my way to losing all of it. It's hard work, but you get paid back in full, so who cares? My outlook has changed. Now when I see really obese people I can't help but judge a little. I know everyone's got different demons to deal with, but it astounds me how much I sympathized with something that can be changed with the right amount of dedication.
And yeah, McDonalds is cheap, but it's not like carrots are through the roof or something.
Just want to say good luck with the weight loss, pastorofmuppets. Keep it up.

I don't know what's dumber. The documentarian who thought he could prove that *gasp* fast food is bad by eating more of it than any sane person would. Or the buttergolems who felt like their way of life was threatened when someone dared to say that McDonald's isn't healthy.
At least his TV show was alright.

This movie was ground breaking and genious on many levels. These five stars are for the jealous, fat beardos commenting here.
I misspelled genius. Is that the worst word to misspell?
'Hoard' when reciting whimsical tales of your mother in law in an attempt to impress her husband?

I didn't know that Dr. Kevin Soh did gastric bypass! That or more doctors have soothing musical tools that act like terrifying claws.

I liked this documentary, it's as cartoony and sensational as the restaurant image itself, making them a good pair. Even still, McDonalds does make me queezy when I eat their burgers, which is weird considering the other garbage I eat on a fairly regular basis. Now if only the Hamburgler could have been his cellmate in that other documentary.
Also : d'eauwsche'e (klingrish).

When I was in America, I wanted to buy a half pound of fries.
This fucker's movie ruined that for me.
Five all the same.

I like Morgan Spurlock. This isn't a serious medical documentary about the effects of fast food. It's "Fast Food Nation" for people who enjoy "Jackass."
His show "30 Days" is similar - it's hell of preachy, but he does some really cool stuff. The ones where he lives on minimum wage, works in a coal mine, and goes to the county jail are all definitely worth watching.
