Why do you even try? In order to make a concise response you may need to actually read the quoted material and view the source itself. Chipotle is a
fast food chain here in the states.
And I never mentioned Supersize me, which you have countered with Fat Head.
No, but plenty of others have as supporting evidence that McDonalds food is extremely unhealthy.
How can you believe any of these videos? They could be doing anything off camera in order to gain/lose weight and falsify their findings. Both
are meant to be provocative and to make money!
Supersize me was an attempt to make money. Fat head was an attempt to uncover the lies about supersize me. The latter showed that eating sensibly at
McDonalds can improve an unhealthy person's health. Tom Naughton hardly made a dime off of that documentary.
You see, I don't just "believe these videos", I watch them and make an informed decision regarding their validity. Spurlock was grossly and
forcefully overeating well beyond the caloric intake of what most people can handle. He repeatedly blamed McDonalds for forcing people their foods
and he repeatedly blamed fatty/fried foods as the main reason for his weight gain.
Naughton ate fat laden burgers and chicken strips, and avoided the fries and sugary drinks. He kept carbohydrate consumption to under 100g a day. He
ate sensibly and lost weight. And, although he was eating tons of fat he still improved his blood lipids, blood sugars and BMI.
How do I know he wasn't fudging the results or deceptively eating other foods behind the scenes? Because it makes sense, dietarily speaking.
The obesity crisis has not been understated, just take a look around you! Look a the condition of the health of most of the worlds
Don't get me wrong, the obesity has run rampant and is now spreading throughout the UK. However, obesity rates are very much overestimated and
sensationalized. The main culprit is BMI. According to the BMI...Arnold Swarchenegger was obese during his competitive days.
Do your own experiment, and see how you feel and report back to us.
I've done plenty of experiments...but my personal anecdotes are irrelevant.
