Lets go to Mac'D

Last week Ankur surprised me with something. It was all about a movie "Super Size Me".Super Size Me is a 2004 documentary film, directed by, produced by and written by Morgan Spurlock, an American independent filmmaker. He did a experiment on McDonald's Fast Foods. 30 days continuously he kept on eating McDonald's Food and the result was ....... see from your eyes :)

Before launching this experiment, Spurlock, age 33, was healthy and slim, with a body weight of 185.5 lb (84.1 kg). (Spurlock is 6 feet 2 inches (1.88 m) tall.) After thirty days, he gained 24.5 lb (11.1 kg), a 13% body mass increase, and his Body Mass Index raised from 23.2 (within the 'healthy' range of 19-25) to 27 ('overweight'). He also experienced mood swings, sexual dysfunction, and nearly catastrophic liver damage. It took Spurlock fourteen months to lose the weight he gained.

After reading this, we became more enthusiastic to see some of the videos. We came across 2 deadly videos. One was his experiment on McDonald's Burgers and French Fries. Some hidden truth that we must know: (4 min)

and other on the school children, I can say a test on their IQ :) (A shocking one) (1 min)

Just see the two videos and tell me when we are going McDonald's next time :D

Excess of nothing is good. And 'Supersize Me' proves just that. Am surprised that u din't hear about this movie earlier.

I don't exactly remember the details but sometime back (after 'Super..') there was another movie which shows a gentleman losing weight by going on a Mc'D diet!!

But both are extreme cases, which no one should try to emulate.

Ya I haven't heard of this movie. But if I am not wrong then MacD claims on their food that you can take it as meal of all time ! What is then excess about it?

I really hate these fast foods like Burgers, Fries etc etc. That too most of people here in US depend on this junk food and I was surprised seeing most obese people out here, I never saw people such fat before.

I think everyone should think about the damage it causes in longer term..Anyways good videos
