Have you watched the documentary film by Morgan Spurlock called "Supersize me"? No!? The film talks about the supersized portions of food sold by a fast food restaurant. According to Spurlock, "Super Size Me is one man's journey into the world of weight gain, health problems and fast food. It’s an examination of the American way of life and the influence that has had on our children, the nation and the world at large".

But, how did he choose this name for the film? Check it out!

Supersize (also Supersized) - adjective

It all started with a particularly large portion of French fries at a well-known fast food restaurant. But supersize portions of food lead to supersize people and supersize health problems. Supersize people need supersize homes, drive supersize cars, and shop at supersize shopping malls. We now live in a society where things are not just large, but excessively large, or supersize.

"Supersize beds, wheelchairs, hoists and commodes are being installed in Hawke's Bay Hospital, Hastings, to cope with a growing number of obese patients..."

(Hawkes Bay Today, New Zealand, 16th June 2005)

I'm Chinese. Mcdonald's and KFC took junk food from USA to China several years ago. And since then, there are more and more supersize children all over the country. Junk food is one of the challenging issues for human being.

I heard of the film before. But I have not seen it yet.

everyone makes their own choices. no one forces anyone to eat fast food..they do it becasue they want too. so don’t blame the fast food companies, blames the idiots that eat there everyday and then don’t exercise!
