Watch Super Size Me For Free
July 27, 2006
If you and your family haven't had the opportunity to watch Morgan Spurlock's awesome documentary Super Size Me, you can watch it for free online at the link below.
The simple premise of this award-winning film: Measuring the personal and physical effects of eating a "McDonald's diet" for a month.
Over the course of his fast food regimen, you'll see Spurlock's physical and mental health decline as he gains 25 pounds and suffers many of the same health complaints -- fatigue, indigestion and headaches -- I see often in patients.
An interesting factoid: Two months after the DVD release of Super Size Me came this timely study linking the frequency of fast-food dining to obesity and insulin resistance. Unfortunately, the success of Super Size Me didn't prevent a return of super-sized food items to the McDonald's menu.
Just to show you how powerful Super Size Me really is, go to Google.com and key in the word McDonald's. The official Super Size Me Web site listing directly follows the McDonald's corporate Web address.
