    Who here has seen this great documentary? Ugh, I never want to eat fast food again. I wanted to throw up just from watching it.

    I think the best cure for obesity in America would be to watch this movie. :)

    well he ate the same exactl thing for a whole month for breakfast lunch and dinner right? well if anyone ate the same thing for a month 3 times a day anyone could get sick of it. One time in this darwin awards thing there was like this guy who killed himself by having a badly ventilated room and what happened was his mix of foods (beans n a little bit of other stuff) killed him in his sleep. If he had the window open or a better ventilated room or something he would have lived, but he died cause it wasnt. That sucks and is funny to die by your on gases! ick!

    i didn't have to see that documentary to be turned off from fast food. i just can't stomach all of it anymore. though, i do make an exception here and there for Wendy's, but that exception happens no more than 5 times a year.

    He didn't eat the same thing for each meal everyday. He had to order everything on the menu at least once.

    If you made a documentary proving there was shit in fast food people would still eat it. LOL

    LOL. People will continue to make their own decisions, some silly documentary isn't going to deter them.

    As far as this movie is concerned, thought it was just okay, though it definately isn't going to stop me from eating fast food. Plus, I have a really hard time with the director's credibility

    I think Morgan ate veg more often than not before this filming.
    What hit me was the almost-aside abut having to walk less to be a Standard American.
    rent it as a DVD and watch the extras, and decide for yourself.
    I fould Morgan a bit much, but I had no issues with credibility.

    This movie did little to change my eating habits. It did show me what happens when you give up every single attempt at being active and overeat does to the body. Honestly, this guy could have picked food from just about anywhere else, lets say TGIFridays, and the results would have been the same.

    Proves very little, imho.

    yeah I think the moral is about the saturated fat content, not so much that it was "the same thing every meal" considering how many people in 3rd world countries live off mainly rice. peace.
