    That movie didn't have the effect on my like everyone else I talked to (99% non gym goers).

    I think the movie didn't have the impact that it did for others because like everything, fast food eatin (is that a word) in moderation isn't "death" like as it's portrayed in this movie.

    If everyone WANTED to gain 20lbs in 30 days they sure as hell could...

    ^^ to a lot of people, fast food is eaten (that was the word you were looking for) pretty consistently and on a daily basis, especially for those that are always busy and too lazy to cook .... so people DO get damn fat off fast food.

    I eat fast food maybe once every other week. If that often now. In the past pre 2005 I ate fast food several times a week. :eek2:

    Over the summer it was White castle and McDonalds dollar menu.. perhaps thats why I used to weigh 255, 198 now. The movie didn't shock me too much either but I still enjoyed it. The best part imho is the portion about school foods. God I ate soooooo bad in highschool. Fries/Cheese/chicken nuggets and a cookie... oh god what was I thinking. And lets not forget a soda between every few classes.

    When I was powerlifting "hardcore" (if you wanna call it that), I was eating wendy's every day because me and my buddies practically lived off of the 99cent menu. I was constantly trying to bulk and I would get like 2 double stacks w/ cheese, a 5peice nugget, a chili, and a fry. This happened like 5-6 days a week for about 5 months. I since have given up fast food, and have not had a fast food burger in almost 2 years. I noticed a BIG difference when I gave that stuff up.

    as an above poster commented, people that eat fast food in moderation dont really see "detrimental" effects, but the problem is that many american's no longer eat fast food in moderation. For many it has become a regular thing to grab during lunch at work, on the way home from work... I know several people older than me (i am only 19) that work full-time and eat fast food about 4-6 times a week.

    That movie wasn't that special I thought. Definately entertaining, though I like how his pussy ass couldn't finish a double quarter poundner meal. Also his vegan body almost shit on him in less than a month of eating mcdonalds.

    Why is that toy on your head?
    A university professor did the same diet, but he lifted/did cardio while on it... he lost weight.

    McDonalds is not the healthiest, but the fact the dude did ZERO exercise shows a lot about how heathly it is to workout.

    I've been known to eat 5-6 at a time plus fries and a frosty, it's nice having a fast metabolism, I'm 6' and 175. I also lift and run reguarly which helps quite a bit also.

    That movie actually made me want a big mac in his honor. Personally, I think the guy got what he deserved, and his "study" has been proven false on more than one occasion. Oh my McD's is bad for you!!! Thank you captain obvious.

    I liked the part of the documentary that showed how exercise helped students at that one school, both physically and mentally

    watching it now....


    god this is making me sick
     
  23. Supersize Me is a fucking joke. A Lady did the same thign, ate mcdonalds for 1 month including everything on the menu once. After a month w/ DAILY EXERCISE she lost weight.

    And in the 10 mins of that trash they showed some old guy who eats 900 big macs a year and he was skinny as fuck. So much for making you fat.

    That tard just did the documentary to cash in on a hot subject and make some money. Do you really think he was trying to "enlighten" the American's attitude towards fast food? As John Stossil (sp?) would say, Give me a break.

    The point of the movie is not that mcdonalds is bad, that is just a small part of it. The rest of the movie is about how Americans do not excersize, how companies use schools to gain footholds in our nations youths, and some other points. Did you watch the movie?
     
  25. No, the point of it was so some loser could CASH IN WHILE THE MONEY WAS HOT.
