Lesson learned: Don't eat nothing but McDonald's.

Eating junk food occasionally, in an otherwise healthy diet, isn't going to hurt anyone.

People (Americans in particular) really need to learn the meaning of MODERATION.

8O Whoa...crazy article. I can't wait to see the movie - I love those sorts of "corporate exposure" movies. :lol:

To some, this isn't a documentary - it's reality TV.

Yikes! Scary stuff...but I can't wait to see the film. I won't feel too bad about my diet, after all, the only thing I ever get at McDonalds is a vanilla ice cream.

If this can be called reality TV, I may just have to reconsider my position on the genre.

Default Fast Food Nation

If you want to read a good book about the fast food industry, check out Fast Food Nation. It's part pop culture, part tell-all and is a great read. If you want to know what you're getting into at your favorite fast food joints, this is a good place to start.

I still eat fast food after reading this but I haven't had a Big Mac or Quarter Pounder with Cheese in over a year. (I do have a weakness for Wendy's burgers though... must resist... South Beach Diet is our friend...)

Yeah, I read that book - VERY scary. I think what offended me the most was the way the workers who treated by the big companies...

Like a modern-day "Jungle". 8O

I would be very interested in seeing that movie - partially because it sounds interesting and partially because I hate McDonalds.
