Super Size Me!

I watched this film last night and after having watched this, I seriously don’t think I want to eat fast food anymore. The guy who did the film weighed 185 before he started the 30 day, 3 times a day McDonald’s experiment. When it was all said and done, he had gained nearly 25 pounds. He was 210 after 30 days. He had serious heart, liver and respiratory problems. In addition, he also had sexual dysfunction. If that doesn’t scare you, I don’t know what would.

He saw five or six medical professionals and none of them could have guessed what would have happened to him. They didn’t know that these other problems would come about.It took him 30 days to put on 25 pounds. It took him 14 months to lose all of the weight; 20 pounds were taken off in 5 months and the last 5 took 9, yes 9 months! It took 8 weeks to detox his body. His levels came back down to normal. He was showing signs of addiction–yup the same signs that people have when they drink, smoke and use illegal drugs.

If you haven’t seen this movie, you really need to. It was an hour and 38 minutes and it was totally worth it.

More than 50% of the Community Health nurses said that fast food should be eaten rarely to never. Only 2 out of 100 said that it was okay to eat fast food 2 times a week or more! Who in their right mind would ACTUALLY say that? Of course, as the law would have it, you’re not allowed to sue the fast food industry because “You should know better.”

My father worked for the USDA for 33 years. He worked in the School Lunch Program department. That’s the department that ensures that schools who participate in the Free and Reduced lunch program are following Federal guidelines for food nutrition. He would be appalled at what the schools are allowing to feed children. It was starting to change when I was in school and then Subway had gotten a contract where I was teaching. The sandwiches are for the most part healthy for you, but it is still fast food and it still has processed meat in those sandwiches

The best thing for you, eat at home. Not only will it be more nutritious for you, but if you have children, they’ll be less likely to start using drugs. That’s a fact, jack!

Never again. I will never eat out again! I’m scared for my health!

    It’s okay to have an occasional one, according to 98 of the health nurses that were asked.

    And after my shock of this wears out, I will probably go back to once every week or two. When we move is when we go out the most.
