I've watched it twice now in Health class. Anyhow, is there scientific legitimacy to the result?

No, McDonalds is not responsible for fatties going to McDonalds everyday, if that's what you are implying.

Obviously, but the film questioned is there a line where you can't go without something due to addiction.

Very true ;) Anyway, I also saw the movie in health class. I'm a bit skeptical of the movie in its entirety, but it may have some science involved with the routine appointments and calculations of fats and such.

Well, duh. That's the definition of addiction - absolutely needing and craving something. Which is true for an addiction of anything.

Sure, but really I don't like the documentary very well mainly because of how they handled the scientific experiment that was the focus of the movie. Too many flaws and incorrect variables.

Yes and no really.
Corporations are pretty much out to make money, McDonalds does, or has, targeted children for advertising, McDonalds would like you to eat their food as often as possible, McDonalds would like to mention the nutrition value of most of their range as little as possible, McDonalds knows that it's food is junk food.

But for the love of God you can decide for yourself whether to eat it, can't you?
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Also he won't publish his food log, which does rather invalidate the science.

But we know what such a diet would do to us.

I agree with the earlier posts that suggest that people should take personal responsibility for their weight rather than blame other factors such as cynical fast food chains.

Of course outfits like McDonald's are out to make money, that's what companies do, but you can choose whether or not to buy greasy hamburgers just like you can choose whether or not to buy a bottle of vodka and a pack of cigarettes instead of spending the money on a session at the gym.

But isn't that always the way with the fat? It's never their fault they are overweight. Have you ever met a salad-dodger who has admitted that they are obese because they are greedy and lazy?

No, it's always "a genetic predisposition" or "a thyroid problem". Yeah, right, so the vast quantities of pizzas, burgers, fried chicken and cakes they shovel down their oversized gullets every day has nothing to do with it and neither has the fact that they never do any exercise?

Funny how few people you see in African refugee camps or in South Asian shanty towns who are "genetically predisposed" to being fat though, isn't it?

It's a hard life being white, we get all the bad breaks.

McDonalds! (:

I work at McDonalds, and I eat there at least three times a day...and I haven't gained any weight.

But really, Fast food isn't addicting, you just get a craving for it, some more than others.

Supersize Me is pretty much comparable to anything done by Michael Moore-- it's for the entertainment value. The main goal has very little to do with bringing anyone the objective truth.

Fast food addictions are for fat people in denial. Like, I'm overweight and whatnot, but I certainly wouldn't dream of holding McDonald's responsible for my fat a$$. Mind you, I actually don't eat fast food (trying to get healthy and all), but that just goes to show that, after 15 years of a single mom feeding us what she could in between two jobs (i.e. fast food), I was still able to figure it the heck out and start cooking for the family.

I think Supersize Me is bogus. The man was used to eating home-cooked meals for his entire life, and suddenly he's eating these big-a$$ meals, of course he's going to gain weight. A large fry alone takes up an entire large plate in my house, and I never fill my plate when I eat at home. And how many people really order a double-quarter pounder with cheese and "supersized" fries (we don't have "supersize" in Canada) and a large chocolate shake or its equivalent 3 times a day? It's a great scare tactic for fat kids though. Obesity in the U.S. is ridic.

My favourite is "I don't even eat a lot". They forget to add "...when other people are around" because they definitely eat more than your average person when they think nobody is watching.
