‘’Mc Diet’’

1. Read the following general information about the documental ‘’Super Size Me’’ to understand the activity

Morgan Spurlock directing and starring on an American independent film: ‘’Super Size Me’’. Spurlock’s film follows a 30-day period from February 1st to March 2nd, 2003 in wich he only ate food from McDonald’s.

2. Read a summary about the first part of the documental ‘’Super Size Me’’ ( The experiment) or visit to watch the video.

As the film begins, Spurlock is in physically above average shape according to his personal trainer. He is seen by three physicians (a cardiologist, agastroenterologist, and a general practitioner), as well as a nutritionist and a personal trainer. All of the health professionals predict the "McDiet" will have unwelcome effects on his body, but none expected anything too drastic, one citing the human body as being "extremely adaptable."

On February 1, Spurlock starts the month with breakfast near his home in Manhattan, where there is an average of four McDonald's locations (and 66,950 residents, with twice as many commuters) per square mile (2.6 km²). He aims to keep the distances he walks in line with the 5,000 steps (approximately two miles) walked per day by the average American.

• He must fully eat three McDonald's meals per day: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

• He must consume every item on the McDonald's menu at least once over the course of the 30 days (he managed this in nine days).

• He must only ingest items that are offered on the McDonald's menu, including bottled water. All outside consumption of food is prohibited.

• He must Super Size the meal when offered, but only when offered (i.e., he is not able to Super Size items himself) (Spurlock was offered 9 times; 5 of them were in Texas).

• He will attempt to walk about as much as a typical U.S citizen, based on a suggested figure of 5,000 standardized distance steps per day,[8] but he did not closely adhere to this, as he walked more while in New York than in Houston.

Day 2 brings Spurlock's first (of nine) Super Size meal, at the McDonald's on 34th Street and Tenth Avenue, which happens to be a meal made of a Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Super Size French fries, and a 42 ounce Coke, which takes 22 minutes to eat. He experiences steadily increasing stomach discomfort during the process, and promptly vomits in the McDonald's parking lot.

3. Work in groups of four. As you can see, Spurlock’s is getting into trouble now. Discuss and answer the following questions:

a) What would happen to the person of the documentary if he contiunues eating at the fast food restaurant for 30 days?

b) Do you think fast food is bad for your healt?

c) Do you think fast food alters your weight? How?

d) Is your health in danger if you undergo to this experiment? Why?

e) Identify what happened with Spurlock’s in Day
