That movie was fantastic and a surprisingly good Blueray transfer for some reason.

Watched Food Inc. and Supersize me and I still eat it all like a fat kid on a cupcake. I don't care.

If you think our food comes from some fairy tail land where all animals roam free and live the perfect life and are killed is a nonhurtful way you are more than likely a member of effing PETA.

As long as my family and I don't get sick I don't really care where my steak came from other than a COW.

Supersize me pissed me off.

The guy went from eating as a Vegan to eating nothing but McDonald's and had 0 portion control, if they offered to supersize he accepted.
Try that experiment at any restaurant and the results would be the same.

Quoted for the truth.

Everyone says this, but they are all missing the point.
You see, if I would only eat out of our garden and hunt all of my meat I would be like Popeye on spinach. In other words, I would be very healthy.
They done the exact opposite. They made him eat only fast food. Because it made him unhealthy. It shows that the food that he was eating is unhealthy.

It was told at an extreme to prove a point. You can still eat fast food every once in a while, but it will still be unhealthy. Just as long as it is balanced with good food I do not see the harm except for the fact that it is all has a high calorie count.
I know a family that does not look at it this way. Fast food is what they mainly eat and guess what? They are all very unhealthy. Even the fifteen year old son is really sick. He is already pre-diabetic and is about 80 lbs. over weight. Their skin looks awful, they have no endurance and their stamina is not there. They try to get healthier by walking, but that wont do them any good unless they stop eating fast food!


This is what Supersize Me was trying to tell people.

He should have mentioned more than just McDonalds then. I know he chose them because there was some marketing by them that claimed they had healthy food and at the time they really didn't have any good options. But I challenge you to name a national chain restaurant, Fast food or sit down that if eaten as the only source of food would not cause you to be fat and unhealthy.

Fast food gets a bad wrap. Many people believe that when they go to a sit down restaurant they are getting better stuff, and they might be. But they get so much more of the better stuff that it makes it just as bad for them.

Fast food gets a lot of its bad reputation because it fries everything. Fried food isn't that good for you. I do not know exactly how because I haven't done that much research on it. For right now I am just trusting the word of the nurses in the family.

Anyways, to name a few good restaurants.....
Olive Garden
Subway (ish)
Crackle Barrel
Texas Roadhouse
(and) I have suspicions of other restaurants but I will not mention them because I honestly don't know. My family just does it the right way. We save money and shoot/grow a lot of our own food and make almost everything from scratch and not go out to eat.

This defending of fast food makes me think about Christmas when all of the family is present and it erupts into an argument between those who eat fast food (the men) and those who don't (the women). (generally speaking)
