Super Size Me is a 2004 American documentary film directed by and starring Morgan Spurlock.
The film begins with some staggering statistics about the obesity problems in the U.S. – the world’s most obese nation. According to Spurlock, over 60% of us are overweight – some 100 million people.
He says obesity is now second only to cigarette smoking as a major cause of preventable death in America.
Apparently this pattern is not limited to the U.S and it has now spread across the globe.
Mr. Spurlock wonders what would happen to his health if he just ate McDonald’s exclusively at all meals for 30-days. A court ruling about proving how McDonald’s affects your health has motivated him to take this quest.
He’s curious to see what would happen to his health.
Spurlock embarks on a 30-day period during which he ate only McDonald’s food. Super Size Me documents his experience with only eating fast food and the drastic effect on Spurlock’s physical and psychological well-being.
While this film clearly looks at the downside to eating fast food, we didn’t see this message as the prominent focus of the alignment session.
Sure we all know what fast food is and what it isn’t as it pertains to our health.
We’re more interested in seeing how Spurlock became an example of how all of us – at times – let the FOOD drive our behavior and choices.
In this Alignment Process film we specifically addressed the emotional patterns associated to our childhood food conditioning and our overall food addictions.
