Supersize Me, By Morgan Spurlock

Title: Supersize Me
Creator: Morgan Spurlock
Genre: Non-Fiction

Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock embarks on a journey to find out if fast food is making Americans fat. For 30 days he can't eat or drink anything that isn't on McDonald's menu; he must eat three square meals a day, he must eat everything on the menu at least once and supersize his meal if asked. He treks across the country interviewing a host of experts on fast food and a number of regular folk while downing McDonald's to try and find out why 37% of American are now overweight. Spurlock's grueling diet spirals him into a metamorphosis that will make you think twice about picking up another Big Mac.

This is a must see DVD if you are like many Americans who depend on fast food more than 2-3 times a week for meals. After watching this movie, I began to see why many people are having trouble with weight gain. This movie is a real eye opener that will hopefully lead to healthier eating and less healthcare issues. There are many diseases that are a result of excessive weight, but diabetes is affecting many people at alarming rates. To see the groups most affected by diabetes, click here.

To start the journey of eating healthy, it is better to get an early start in life. If parents eat healthy, kids will also eat healthy. For tips on how you and your family can learn how to eat healthy, click here. For more books on healthy living, click here.

I hope that after you see the movie, you will make a positive change for better health. How are some ways you and your family stay healthy? We would love to hear your ideas.
