Supersize me fact?  Hardly...

For anyone who has seen, or even heard about, “Supersize me”, I suggest you watch “Fat Head”.  Stupid movie name, although after watching it you will understand if your paying attention <smile>.  So please ignore the name and just watch the movie.

Its available for free at http://www.hulu.com/watch/196879/fat-head, or via Netflix on-demand.

OK, OK, short form:  “Supersize Me” is about a guy that eats nothing but McDonnalds three-times a day for 30 days and complains about all the problems it caused him.  Of course, he didn’t just eat there, he forced himself to eat about 5000 calories a day and quit all forms of exercise just to make his point.  “Fat Head” is written and stars a math/computer guy that couldn’t stomach (pun intended!) all the bull in “Supersize Me”.  Think in terms of Atkins diet with a reasonable amount of carbs (say 100g/day instead of the FDA recommended 300g/day).  Honestly, it makes sense to me and the movie is actually done a lot better than “Supersize Me” was.  Its not particularly kind to the FDA or CSPI.  Especially CSPI…
