Seseorang yang mengalami obesitas akan sangat rentan terhadap berbagai macam penyakit seperti diabetes, hipertensi, gagal jantung dan banyak lagi. Obesitas menjadi pembunuh kedua setelah rokok di AS. Salah satu faktor utama dari masalah obesitas ini adalah pola makan yang tidak sehat. Banyak warga AS yang mengkonsumsi fast food, baik untuk sarapan, makan siang, bahkan makan malam. Tentu saja, AS adalah “surga” junk-food di dunia, anda akan dengan mudah menemukan counter fast food dengan berbagai merek.

Morgan Spurlock memulai film ini dengan rencana melakukan percobaan-yang menurut penulis-ektrem dengan mengkonsumsi junk food selama 30 hari penuh. Dia akan mengkonsumsi junk food mulai dari sarapan pagi hingga makan malam. Ditambah lagi dengan membatasi jumlah langkah yang tentu saja berkontribusi untuk membakar kalori di dalam tubuh. Sebelum memulai percobaan ini, dia memeriksa kesehatannya ke tiga dokter spesialis yang beda dan satu ahli nutrisi dan kesehatan.

Dari sekian banyak produsen junk food, Morgan memilih menu yang disediakan McD sebagai percobaan. McD dipilih dengan beberapa alasan; pertama, McD adalah produsen terbesar junk food di AS.

Saat dilakukan pemeriksaan kesehatan, terlihat jelas kenaikan yang signifikan dari kandungan darahnya. Kadar kolesterol dan gula dalam darahnya menunjukkan kenaikan serta terlihat gejala gangguan pada hatinya. Melihat kondisi ini, dokter yang memeriksa Morgan menyarankan agar segera menghentikan percobaan ini. Namun morga bersikeras untuk menyelsaikan percobaannya. Perubahan yang pelan tapi pasti.

Pada hari terakhir, berat badan Morgan menjadi 210 lbs (95 kg). Selain itu dari hasil pemeriksaan yang dilakukan oleh dokter yang mendampinginya terdapat beberapa catatan yang mencengangkan. Kadar kolesterol dan gula dalam darah Morgan bertambah dengan drastis. Tekanan darahnya jauh berada di atas normal. Dia terancam 2 kali lebih rentan terhadap penyakit dan gagal jantung serta perubahan perilaku. Yang paling terlihat adalah, tumpukan lemak yang bersembunyi di perut terlihat jelas alias menjadi lebih buncit. Ketiga dokter yang mendampinginya pun tidak dapat mempercayai apa yang mereka temukan dari percobaan ini. Akhir kata, mereka menyarankan: jangan pernah makan junk food!

  1. The argument that links fast food to obesity remain unanswered. Though one reason why people crave to eat more is because of the chemical flavoring (preservatives) that contains in the food. Rapid weight loss cannot be achieve by just avoiding fast food meals but preparing it fresh is better rather than taking an order in a resto.

  2. @okuma : the answer is if you eat mcd or junk food too many and everyday eat that.. you will be like that man.. psychology will react too.
    So eat fresh and natural. don't junk food
