Book description
Under constant supervision by a cardiologist, a gastroenterologist, and an internist, Spurlock manages to survive, but it takes him over a year to undo the damage he does to his health. The photography appeals to the sensational, with a regrettable close-up of the vomiting Spurlock on his first day on the diet and an even more sensational close-up of a gastric bypass, geared to be as repulsive as possible, as an alternative for the obese who are dealing with high blood pressure and diabetes. Filled with interesting, if fairly well publicized facts, and very entertaining, Spurlock's film offers a warning about the dangers of diets highly dependent upon fast food.
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

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.… (more)
