Repulsed and compelled by Super Size Me last year, I picked up Spurlock's Don't Eat This Book, an extension of the film.
Incidentally, Spurlock has produced a school-friendly version of the film with more food talk added (and certain discussions deleted, if you know what I mean.)
I don't know why it's so hard to break away from fast food. Even though I'm one of the more conscientious parents I know, I still get sucked into that nutritional void.
Super Size Me demonstrates the powerful force that is human nature. McDonald's and ConAgra may have an unhealthy conspiracy, but we're the ones eating it up.
Here's one of those supermarket economy tips from Don't Eat This Book, delivered with Spurlock's trademark humor:
"Do all your shopping around the perimeter of the store. That's where all the fresh food is. The center is for boxed, frozen, processed, made-to-sit-on-your-shelf-for-months food. You have to ask yourself, "If this food is designed to sit in a box for month and months, what is it doing inside my body?" Nothing good, that's for sure." (p. 234)
By the way, Morgan Spurlock now has a blog.
