Movie Review “Super Size Me”

Information and issues I have become aware of: The movie “Super Size Me” is a great film that exposes the danger of fast food consumption as a steady diet, particularly McDonalds food in this case. I have grown up loving McDonalds food. Eating out there wasn’t something that my family did on a regular basis but when we did it was a special treat. Apple Pies, Cheeseburgers, French Fries, those were my favorites. I never once wondered about the health ramifications for eating such food.

After only 30 days of consuming McDonalds the journalist of this film gained 25lbs and according to tests done by monitoring physicians, he became extremely unhealthy making his life at risk.
Reflections I had after watching the movie; I was astonished by the overwhelming proof provided by this journalist’s 30-day documentary. Proof that fast food is unhealthy and deadly. I immediately spoke with my wife upon returning home from class and made her aware of what I had learned. We both agreed that we cant feed our kids this kind of food. I thought of all the times I stopped at McDonalds to get my kids happy meals because it made them “happy” and because it was easier thing to do compared to cooking. I thank God for using this journalist to expose the danger of this food. There is no way I could ever allow my kids or myself to eat at McDonalds again without having some caution.

The most valuable lesson I learned from this film is that I must be aware of what I eat. Taste over health will kill me and fast over cooking will hurt me. I have to make a conscious effort to eat healthy.
The one question I have after watching the film is; how can McDonalds and these other fast food companies get away with offering such unhealthy food?

What is the one thing that I will implement as a result of this movie; I will not eat any french fries from a fast food restaurant
