Super Size Me- Written Review
1. What have you learned from watching this movie? Explain.
I learned that eating fast food all the time could become a major health problem. Not only can it make you become overweight and eventually obese, it will make your cholesterol go up and you will be more prone to heart disease and diabetes.
2. What changes do you plan to make to your current eating habits as a result of watching this movie? Explain.
I plan to stop eating fast food as much as I have. Instead of having a burger at Jack in the Box I could just get a sub at Subway. I am also going to start eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner instead of just lunch or dinner, and then I won’t be so hungry and eat more than I should.
3. If you embarked on this experiment and were experiencing the same side effects as Morgan- apathy, depression, lethargy, chest pressure, liver, etc damage… would you have stopped eating fast food, as was recommended by his doctors? Explain.
To be honest I am not sure if I would stop. I would say now that I think I would, but if I was actually doing the experiment and I had my mind set on something, then I might want to just finish.
4. If Shorewood was willing to change one program to help improve the health of its students, what program would you suggest changes to? Why? Explain.
I would suggest changing the lunch program. I think that some of the food that is available to the students at Shorewood is not that healthy. But I guess that it is the students’ choice to eat healthy or not.
