"Do not supersize me" ...or..."how I broke the fast food habit"

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

I was addicted to Taco Bell, Wendy's and Burger King. It was easy, fast, cheap and I'd eat in the privacy of my own home (or car). I had heard of the movie "Supersize Me" where, under doctor's supervision, a man eats McDonald's for every meal for 30 days....and the doctors monitor his weight and do regular blood work. Watching that movie really helped me realize how BAD fast food is for you. I know I'd heard it a million times, but I guess watching one person go through some very bad changes to his life hit home. I benefitted from the man's comments on how he was feeling (sluggish/depressed) and how he didn't even really "taste" the food after a while....
I think of that movie EVERY TIME i am tempted by a fast food joint. So spending the 2 hours watching it was worth it !

    Maybe I need to rend that for DH.

    Thankfully, I'm not really terribly fond of fast food. I like fries, but over the last few years haven't even found fast food fries to be terribly satisfying, and I no longer even crave them. I really believe it has to do with eating healthy most of the time -- you end up craving more of what you're eating.
