Watched Supersize Me

I watched (most of) Supersize Me with the wifey the other day on Netflix, and like Food Inc., it was very eye opening.  If you haven't heard, the lead in the movie (it feels weird calling him an actor or researcher) undergoes an experiment where he eats McDonald's for every meal for 30 days and documents the physical and medical changes to him as he goes along.  He starts off as a very fit person and by the end he has trouble climbing the stairs to his apartment.  He gains over 10% of his body weight, and the stats at the end of the film about how much fat, sugar and such he has consumed are astounding.  He goes though and researches other aspects of the fast food industry as well.  I think this a good film to watch especially if you find yourself in the drivethrough line more often than you think you should be.
