Blog: Super duper me
Catherine Sleep | 25 January 2006
Lingering under the golden arches, many of you will have watched Morgan Spurlock’s investigate film, Super Size Me, and reeled in horror as he ate nothing but McDonald’s food for a whole month.
As the predictable effects of such a restricted diet kicked in, you may remember the Blonde Vegan Girlfriend fussing around in the background and telling him he was killing himself. This was Alex Jamieson, and she’s now cashing in, oops, I meant following in the footsteps of her famous new fiancé by publishing a book called The Great American Detox Diet, which is essentially the diet she put Spurlock on once his experiment was over.
The book is, of course, supported by a website where you can enjoy pictures of Jamieson canoodling with Spurlock, not to mention their cat snoozing on the sofa. As well as cooking for clients in their own home, Jamieson is also more than willing to help visitors manage their own diet on a consultancy basis. Gotta jump on that bandwagon while it’s still rolling, after all.
