    Surely this is bloody obvious? It`s not as though fast food has a magic `get you fat` ingredient. What it does is make it easy to make bad choices- You could probably eat fairly healthily at the local kebab shop if you out some thought into it..

    Moral of the story; you are the reason you are fat, not McD`s or Coca-Cola, or HFCS, whatever you want to blame it on. It`s all you fatty.

    The point of "Supersize Me" was to NOT count calories, to emulate the average poor ignorant slob who just eats at the troth.

    calories in = calories expended = steady weight
    calories in > calories expended = weight gain
    calories in < calories expended = weight loss

    As simple as that. All of the rest is just noise.

    "He also started walking 45 minutes a day"


    Yeah, but the focus of the results is all on the McDonalds meals, not that 45 minutes a day of exercise.

    Someone should do a more practical documentary called "Keep The Food Coming And Shut The F**k Up."

    The walking was important, increased physical activity burns fat, does lots of good things.

    It`s not so much the amount of activity, but being consistent about it. So I`ve heard...

    Walking 30+ minutes a day gives ENOURMOUS health benefits over sitting on a couch. It may very well have more than offset the deleterious effects of eating only McD`s. Also, eating carefully measured and calculated portions of just about any kind of food will certainly keep you from getting too fat. This is not really surprising..

    But what if he ate the same amount of calories he ate before the experiment, but McD`s instead, and exercised the same amount as before as well? What would have happened then?

    lol @ started walking 45 minutes a day...

    I`ve moved to America to work and I say this to my friends about the differences (NOT a criticism). In England I hardly know anyone that goes to the gym but virtually all of them walk any distance that is less than an hour. Here in America I can go to major cities and they`re ghost towns on pavements/ sidewalks, BUT most of my friends here go to the gym.

    Funny how the world works... Few people in the UK consider walking, running, hiking etc as recreational as they do it out of habit/ necessity but here in the US, the `recreation` is walking, running and hiking as it `seems` to be done less on a daily basis.

    Both of these statements are true.

    I`ve done this personal experiment. His results ain`t sh*t.

    Nobody force feeds themselves (to the point of puking) at McDonalds three times a day.

    It would have been more interesting if he`d had a complete blood panel, including a vitamin deficiency profile before and after the 90 day experiment period. Along with BIA`s... You know, a SCIENTIFIC approach- this is just a bit too subjective.

    Walking a half hour likely burned only 150 to 200 calories. At most. Walking half an hour doesn`t offset any significant weight gain and certainly can`t encourage significant weight loss on its own. 1 lb = 3500 calories. That`s two weeks worth of half an hour of walking to lose just a pound.

    So very obese man with sedentary lifestyle begins a reduced calorie diet that happens to be from McDonald`s and starts exercising. And he loses weight. Well what a total surprise.

    SmegBoy1 - I suspect that you are a skinny or slightly built fellow.
    I am 6 feet tall and weigh 270lbs; about 1/4 of my body mass is fat. That means at a reasonable weight I weigh just under 200lbs. I challenge anyone who weighs 200lbs to walk briskly for 45 minutes each day with a 70 lb back-pack and burn less than 200 calories.
    Perhaps you`d like to try it, and post the results.

    Listypoos-"but the focus of the results is all on the McDonalds meals, not that 45 minutes a day of exercise."

    Actually, the exercise was mentioned just like all other portions of the experiment.

    Had this been done by the guy from `Supersize Me`, Michael Moore or other such `documentary journalist`, the only points that would be reported would be those that support their agenda.

    Sooo, paying attention to calorie intake, and getting some exercise will make you lose weight? Wow. What does any of this have to do with McDonalds? Nice job getting free food for 3 months though.

    @MeGrendel

    comparing flying F**ks to toiletbowls are we?
    This guy set out to test if he could be healthy on a mcmurder diet.. he watched his calorie intake and excersised.

    The supersize (not that the name is a clue or anything) docu went on the premises of, what happens to me if i supersize every meal i get and only eat at mc donnalds as a certain percentage of the population does.


    Bu hey hey who gives a f**k about facts right? as long as you get to call someone a bad person...

    Feel better now? here have a mccookie..

    Haha `oh yeah by the way I`m walking 45 mins a day and monitoring my calorific intake now but YEAH MCDONALDS`

    True though.. it`s not McDonalds making people fat it`s their choices. Still it would be good if healthier fast food chains existed

    @Nickel2. Well, calorie burn is a function of expenditure, as I said below, which, obviously, hs something to do with the amount of weight being moved. But, if you use this chart, I think you`ll find that even you won`t burn even 200 calories walking for 30 minutes. Which, of course, isn`t even a candy bar or Big Mac`s worth of calories.

    My weight is irrelevant to the math.
