Super Size Me
This year in health class we learned about nutrition and exercise. We learned about the importance of a healthy diet and how to eat healthy. We learned about the different kinds of foods that are bad and good for you.
The video "Super Size Me" is about a guy, whose name is Morgan, who takes on a challenge to eat McDonalds for 30 days straight. He has to also eat all 3 meals there, and he has to have tried everything before 30 days is up. Before taking this challenge, he goes to a nutritionist and to a doctor, who make sure that he is healthy enough to do this. One of these doctors doesn't expect a big change but as the challenge goes on the doctor is surprised with the change. When the doctors checked Morgan for the second time, there was a big difference: Weight gain, increased cholesterol, and an increase in fat in his body. The nutritional aspect of this is McDonalds' food isn't healthy everyday because of the amount of processed fat in it. This experiment also shows that at an exercise point of view McDonalds' food ,with the lack of exercise that people get each day, is very fattening and is 1 of the culprits of obesity in Americans. That video has changed the way that I look at fast food.
I learned from this video that fast food isn't the best food choice to eat. I think that I personally have started to eat better. I also found myself not eating as much fast food as I was. I also think that a person should manage their nutrition and exercise by not taking in more calories than you burn off. It is better to make them equal by eating the same amount of calories that you can burn off. I also think that people should manage nutrition by making healthier choices like salads and fruit instead of junk foods.This video has taught me a lot about staying healthy and exercising more.
