Blog: Supersize me (but only for a week)

Catherine Sleep | 14 July 2004

Doubtless inspired by Morgan Spurlock’s 30-day blowout on McDonald’s food, British journalist Tim Adams decided to repeat the experiment. He tweaked it a little to include several other brands of fastfood, notably Burger King, Wendy’s, KFC and Wimpy. What was more relevant to the experiment, however, was that with typical British understatement he restricted the experiment to a week.

After day one, Adams wrote in an article for the Observer Food Monthly that while he wouldn’t go so far as to say “I’m lovin’ it,” he was certainly “findin’ it not too bad”. How long would that last?

You gotta know when to stop.
