that was a great documentary -- although I thought the dude was a bit of a wimp LOL, i know college boys who LIVE ate McDonald's and weigh about 180 at 6 feet tall, cannot gain weight (hate them!!) but that wouldn't make very compelling viewing LOL

What got me about it was when he said about half way thru, that he was feeling so tired and run down and just plain crappy -- UNTIL he at a McDonald's meal again, and then he FELT BETTER!!! yikies that was scary

happy to say I'm 3 weeks sober! i mean clean! i mean McDonald's FREE hahahah I wish my addiciton could have been Jack Daniels...sigh..... i'm kdding im kidding!

I've never had the opportunity to see Super Size Me, though I've wanted to- cultural studies are excellent... and eerie. @_@ I love the series that it spawned! ...Every time I think I may want fast food I get this mental image of that one commercial (2-4 yrs ago?) where someone rolls a pin over arteries and squeezes out the fat. It stops that craving immediately- and makes me gag.

This documentary is one of my diet loss tools. Not only have I not set foot in a MacDonalds for about 2 years but I watch it when I feel I need some extra motivation. Just the scene where the guys having the Gastric bypass is enough to scare me.

It scared the you know what out of me. At my worst I was in the McDonald's drive thru 5 times a week or so. I need to watch that again it helps to keep me on track. I watched a show on TLC last night about people who consume 33,00 calorie a day and how they are now dieing and having all kinds of problems I wasn't going to watch it at first when they showed 3 people that where 500 pounds or more but then they showed a women that is about 300 pounds and I was only about 40 pounds from that when I started.

Watching these things for me is an eye opener, just what I need when I am having a craving.

I've never seen it but I've seen small parts of it. I never liked fast food and in general I think it is pretty disgusting stuff.

My daughter and I watched this same show on TLC lastnight too and WOW, that is scary how much they eat and how they are health wise. I can't imagine not being able to get out of bed, much less out of the house. It was gross watching them shoving the food into their mouths...my daughter was totally disgusted(as was I). I am not too far off from that one lady that weighed 300 lbs either(infact I am only 6 lbs away from that). My daughter said I don't look as big as that lady, but I think differently....I think I look exactly like her physic wise.

These shoes like this sure are eye openers.

I too have not set foot in a McD's since watching it! The scene where Morgan was 'ill' after eating a big mac meal is enough to put me off for life. Good aversion therapy!

I've seen it twice, but would love to see it again! I need constant refreshers. I just had my own hamburger - lean ground beef, sauteed mushrooms and fat free swiss cheese on sugar free wheat buns! So much better than what you can get in Fast Food!

I've been a Fast Food junkie for some time now - I always had to try all the new stuff they offerered. But I'm proud to say I haven't been in 3 weeks! I don't even go for the salads right now because I'm afraid I'll be tempted. I'm not saying I'll never go back, but I will go very infrequently and hopefully make better choices!

Wow, I never saw this commercial but I wish I did! My sobering mental image is of a cross-section of an obese human torso in the BodyWorlds display. It stuck in my head because I assumed fat just surrounded all of our organs, but this showed that fat accumulates WITHIN the organs as well as surrounds them. Scary.

I loved Super Size Me! Before I saw the movie, I read the book "Fast Food Nation". There is also a movie, now, called Fast Food Nation. I haven't seen that one yet.

I have a weird fascination with watching shows that have anything to do with health, weight or food. I watched that TLC show last night on the 33,000 calories and also have seen Supersize Me several times. My DH thinks these shows are "gross" and won't watch them.

My mental pic. to turn me off the "bad stuff" is the Omentum that Dr. Oz showed on Oprah.

can't say I'll never eat at a McDonald's again. If I were hungry and it was all that was available, I'd eat it and try to make the best possible choice.

not part of the 100+ club, but I have to post, I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! I'm also a recovering fast food junkie, and this movie was totally an eye opener. I always know fast food wasnt good for me, but this inspired me to do the research myself. DH and I bought the movie and watch it every couple months to re-cement the image I totally recomend it to anyone who hasn't see it.
