We're not sure how much credit Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me is due for bringing a slew of healthier choices to the major fast-food chains, but we do know that since the documentary first took the film (and food) world by storm, we don't hear the word "supersize" anymore and there are just as many wraps and salads available as there are giant awesome burgers. So, these days, if you attempted to eat nothing but McDonald's for a month or longer, would it be just as bad for you as it was for Spurlock when he attempted it?
Not at all actually, as one science teacher proved. Of course the dude didn't just shove Big Macs down his throat and hope for the best, nor did he only eat salads. Instead, as an experiment with three students from his class, the group came up with a plan and schedule that would make it so the teacher would stick to the recommended 2,000 calories per day while also eating just about everything from the menu. The results? He lost 37 pounds, cut his cholesterol and more, proving with the right scheduling and education, McDonald's ain't that bad after all.
Check out the video report below, and keep an eye out for the teacher's own documentary, which he used to help track his progress.
Curious to hear what Spurlock has to say about it all? He had a small conversation on Twitter with another user about it, which you can track below.
