2 For the poster who gave a ludicrous defense of Morgan Spurlock's propaganda piece, there's a BIG difference between "regular basis" - which could easily mean once per week - and EVERY DAY , ALL DAY. -- Submitted By: (Replicant10k) on September 24, 2014, 9:41 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Super Size me was stupid in itself. Basically it was just some idiot who made it a goal to eat McDonalds for a set number of time. What was that idiot expecting to be the end result? Here's a secret to you fat people out there who actually make McDonalds your breakfast, lunch and dinner as well as desserts. As well as raid their dollar menu, too. It isn't the food. It's you fat fucks with no self-control left in your lives that MADE you fat. It is because of your fat-sausage waving fingers blaming McDonalds for your irresponsibility that McDonalds decided to suck. They decided to try and be healthy after gladly taking the title of being the place where greasebomb burgers are made and Super-Size galore reigned supreme. You fat people make every case sound like someone put a gun to your head while stuffing a Big Mac down into your mouth. The thing is, you can have McDonalds once every now and then. Only if you take the time to remember any process in your brain that you have to exercise that fat off that comes from the food. Failure to do so, will slowly turn you into a walking to rolling ball of fat to the point where you can't even get out of bed anymore. Now, working for McDonalds. That's a different story. The word, "McJob", firmly explains what working there is like. Now that's taking the piss. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on September 17, 2014, 2:29 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun." Haha! Actually, I've never cared for the Big Mac. I never cared for the bun in the middle. As far as boning goes. they've boned and unboned over the years. I agree with the BTF members that feel "Super Size Me" wasn't as authentic as it made out. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on July 10, 2013, 7:08 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 In Supersize Me, the guy also iirc, spent those days inactive. So, not only was he eating Mickey Dees three times a day, he was sitting around all day. His experiment is an extreme example of what happens when you eat fast food and are inactive. I think it should be obvious that you shouldn't be eating fast food that much, you certainly shouldn't be that inactive and you most definitely shouldn't be that inactive. Like everything else, you need to know your limits and enjoy responsibly. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on July 7, 2013, 12:46 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Agreed. Please do not use Super Size Me in any arguments against McDonalds, as it was nothing more than Spurlock looking for a McDonalds potshot. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on July 7, 2013, 2:55 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Two things first. First: Food Inc. is inaccurate, as many farms don't raise animals or grow food in such conditions. Those that do need to shape up or ship out. Second: Super Size Me is also inaccurate. It's just anti-McDonald's propaganda. The thing is, people don't eat McD's all day thrice a day, so Spurlock's experiment was fallacious from the get-go. He was already predisposed against McD's, so of course he's going to say "I feel sick" instead of "Mmm, this is great". It would be like me drinking nothing but bottled water for a month to show people how unhealthy water is. I'd be saying "Ew, this water is nasty" instead of "Ahh, how crisp and refreshing". That said, the quality of McDonald's food took a nosedive when they were forced to make it "healthier". I know someone who ate there in its early years, and the food was great then. When they got rid of the dark meat in chicken nuggets, they became drier and less flavorful. Thanks, food police. As for mom-and-pop diners, I make it a point to visit them. Their food is sometimes better than that of fast food chains. -- Submitted By: () on July 6, 2013, 3:58 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I only eat at this place every 1 1/2 to 2 or more months tops. The meat, fish and veggies are all raised in very poor conditions. The farms and factories in which McDonald's orders their food from and has it processed are some of the most depressing, gross places to exist. The unhealthy, and sometimes unsanitary preparation of this food is not that great, either. (Kudos to Mickey D's who do at least are up to health code and have a friendly staff, I know you do exist out there.) Watch the movies "Super Size Me" and/or "Food Inc." if you don't believe me. Dunno about anyone else, but I can't eat this stuff without getting physically sick 2-3 hours later; sure it tastes good, but it is crappy food. I know it is cheap junk food, but still. Please people, save your health! Pack a lunch or go to a local "Mom and Pop" restaurant and support them before they are extinct due to corporate monopoly and eventual takeover. -- Submitted By: (Crewman) on July 3, 2013, 12:51 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

12 Mcdonalds was called out for being unhealthy, so they did the right thing and became even more unhealthy. I would never even dream of entering this hellhole, not even if I was dying of hunger, I'd rather eat dogshit than enter this artery destroying place. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Zimpy) on January 2, 2011, 6:26 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
13 Not a McDonald's fan and haven't eaten there in years. I personally don't think the food tastes good, but that's my opinion. Having said that, McDonald's boned the fish when they dumped the McDonaldland characters and started the "I'm lovin' it" campaign aimed for urban audience. The ads bug the crap out of me and seem to be pandering. Also, I love how they only emphasize their healthy options these days. I can't remember the last ad I saw for a Big Mac or Quarterpounder, but seem to see ones for the snack wraps and coffee pretty much all the time. Most people I know who go to McDonald's don't go for their salads, they go for their burgers or chicken McNuggets. Oh well, McDonald's will always be a good way to relieve constipation. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on September 11, 2010, 2:39 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
14 I think there are two main reasons why so many people go to McDonalds. One, it's comfort food for a lot of people. The taste may not be wonderful but I think it's still good. There's this sort of familiarity about it that's well, comfortable. Two, it's convenient. If you work late for example, on the way home, it's often a lot easier to stop at McDonalds then it is to make something. Why go through the hassle of cooking something and dealing with the dishes when you can stop off at McDonalds on the way home? In the same way that as long as stores have aisles full of sugary and/or salty snacks, people will buy and consume those snacks because they're good and convenient. Yes, McDonalds is unhealthy but that convenience and comfort food aspect can be difficult to resist. The bottom line is that people are not going to start eating healthy en-masse on their own. Maybe there's a way McDonalds can make their food healthier without sacrificing taste, I don't know. Having said all of that, I agree they should bring back the McDLT. I barley remember it, but I remember it being great. I didn't mind the Arch Deluxe when it was out. However, I agree that the 'this burger is for adults' campaign was a bad idea. If they were to bring it back but maybe did a 'the burger for adults but kids love it too' or something, things could be different. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on February 17, 2010, 2:22 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote

16 I miss the McDLT and the McRib but the worst thing McDonald's did was when they got rid of Grimace, Hamburglar, Birdie, etc in response to parent's groups saying it was wrong to market to children. -- Submitted By: (MarkBagge) on December 20, 2009, 7:58 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
17 The McDonald's in American Fork, Utah called the _police_ on some kids that "rapped" their order to the drive-thru on Oct 27th. The police tracked down the kids and cited them for "disorderly conduct". -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 3, 2009, 5:19 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
18 I agree with TheTruth that McDonald's boned around 1991 when they did the following: Replaced the McDLT (the greatest sandwich McD ever, EVER made) with the McLean Deluxe (which itself ended up being replaced by another fish-boner, the Arch Deluxe); and they replaced the cheese in the Chef Salad with carrots. HELLO, a Chef Salad is not a Chef Salad without CHEESE, the three main ingredients in such a salad are lettuce, meats and cheeses!!! -- Submitted By: (markrabo) on November 3, 2009, 12:45 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
19 When they bowed to pressure from health nuts and environmentalists. The McDonald's I used to love had classics such as fried cherry pies and the McDLT. Then again, I guess part of being a kid is being blissfully oblivious to the fact that your favorite restaurant is run by a bunch of spineless sellouts. -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on October 30, 2009, 9:34 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
20 The director didn't do any exercise because he wanted to represent the amount of exercise a typical American did - which was basically trips to and from work (I think he has a slight advantage in the city actually having to walk a mile or so to and from work). He ate 3 times a day to disprove a lawsuit reasoning that you can be healthy eating McDonald's food on a regular basis. But you definitely nailed it on the head in saying it became routine rather than a treat. Two years ago, I used to eat at Burger King twice a week on the average and I honestly thought (like several Americans) that stuff wasn't that unhealthy for you. To be fair, if you did just go for the salads or visit once a month, it's not so bad. [Sorry I repeated a reason btw. Didn't think to click to view all the reasons before posting it.] -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 2, 2009, 4:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
