3 weeks before i went travelling in June 2005 Super Size Me was on the TV and after watching that i decided not to eat MacDonalds while i was travelling.
Well i never had a MacDonalds at all.
That was up until yesterday when i finally gave in and pigged out on one.

Spooky thing is Super Size Me is on again tonight and its on exactly the same time before i went travelling last year.Precisely 3 weeks before i go.

Coincidence or what

i watched super size me as well and i couldnt eat mcds for ever until a month later when i had a quarter pounder with cheese. they lady asked me i wanted to super size it and i said no.. i have to stick to some belief that not super sizing it will make everything ok.

for your post. i believe its fate. maybe if you eat mcds again after your trip you will get to on another one. how fabulous is that? well have fun on your vacation reece and no eating mcds until you come home again.

It's an omen!

I'd say just give up MC-D's (I include all of them in there: DQ, A&W, BK, TB, etc. etc.) all together and be done with it. There are so many reasons not to eat it. When the only reason to eat it is taste... it doesn't really cut it.

Thanks Lucy and after watching it again its putting me off like it did last time.

I think the worst place ive ever eaten in Brendan has to be Dennys.
That place is just disgusting.

I think im being watched and they have put this on TV again at this time for my sins

Truly. That movie was an eye opener for me, but I think its ok every once in awhile. But who the hell eats McD's every day and for every meal? Food should def be enjoyed and not hated. Not everything we eat or drink has nutritional value, but what ever we do eat should be eaten in moderation.

Oh and I love DQ and BK and TB. I tried to do away with fast food all together but it was impossible. I have limited my fast food consumption to a minimum now but I still love them all. You got to have a few vices cause...uh.. no one is perfect.

Every thing is okay in moderation ..... except for McDonalds et al.

It's a "meal" of nothing more than sugar, salt and fat.

As Brendan said, there are so many reasons not to eat it.

the only fast food i ever eat is taco bell. its the only place where you can get anything decent vegetarian. but its still shit, even if its nowhere near as bad as the others.. no i hate fast food in general. such total shit.

I never eat McDonald's anymore while I'm at home, mainly because of that movie. Oddly enough, I do for some reason like going in ONCE in other countries because they always have something funny and unique to that country; i.e. the McOz, McKiwi and empanadas in S. America.
