This book will change your outlook on fast food!

by OSU Comp Student 2009 on 3/21/2009

This book gives a supersized portion of information on how the fast food industry is making the nation obese. Throughout the book, Spurlock uses a humorous voice, shocking facts, and pieces of his documentary to make us aware of the lack of exercise and overconsumption of food across the nation. Spurlock does a good job of describing the terrible effects of high-fat and high-calorie foods on our health. The eye-opening information presented in this book will make you turn away from fast food and start eating more nutritious meals. I highly recommend this book for people who want to improve their health and prolong their life.

Praise
"Fact-packed and funny....Spurlock's wisecracks make the statistic-laden information easily digestible...Spurlock is surprisingly optimistic about the future, and his book is a powerful took in his rip-roaring campaign to turn around America's love-hate relationship with food."
"A powerful work of reporting and punditry."
From the Publisher
Annotation Morgan Spurlock, whose film SUPER SIZE ME tore into America's obsession with fast food, puts his ideas into print. Spurlock documents the extent of the average person's dependence on fast food (spending $124 billion a year), looks at the health problems this can cause (including obesity and diabetes), and largely blames the industry for the situation. With humor but also an arsenal of indisputable facts, Spurlock moves beyond his immediate topic to question American consumer culture in general.
Editors Note Humorously documents the author's famous experiment during which he ate only fast foods for one month to record the impact of such a diet on human health, a study after which he traveled across country into schools, hospitals, and homes to educate the American public about health issues and physical education. By the director of Super Size Me. Reprint. 75,000 first printing.
