Super Size Me is an eye-awakening movie for those who still are asleep and/or are overweight and/or are feeding the greedy giant corporate machines on a regular basis.
Morgan Spurlock decides to try an experiment in which he only eats McDonald’s fast foods and drinks for one month. It’s interesting to watch his adventure as he downs processed fat and calorie laden foods three times a day but it’s also a learning process as Morgan interviews experts, writers and doctors on the subject of corporate irresponsibility/responsibility, the scientific research performed into making processed foods taste good, and the mental manipulation techniques that are begun with children as young as 3 years of age. It is no wonder that many Americans, and others around the world, are obsessed and addicted to eating fast food, junk food, and sugar products – all foods high in calories, sugars, salts, and fat and empty in ‘good for you’ by-products.
Hopefully, after watching the movie, you will wake up, get the message, and stop feeding the corporate monster. An additional benefit would be to stop eating those “who knows what it really is” processed fast food items (also the soda and candy) and get back to eating what is good for you. Super Size Me is a “Wake up America” anthem documentary and one that should be heeded by those that watch it.
