Portion Size Me
A Study of Healthy Fast-Food ChoicesStreaming Video - 2010
In response to the widely seen documentary Super Size Me, this video follows two college students as they eat only fast food for a month-losing weight and lowering their cholesterol levels in the process. The trick? Aaron and Ellen stay within portion sizes appropriate for their body types. The experiment was organized and documented by Dr. James Painter of Eastern Illinois University's School of Family and Consumer Sciences and monitored by a physician and nutrition expert. Focusing on the dangers of eating too much rather than on restrictive diet warnings, the program shows that smart eating is possible even with limited food choices. Correlates to all applicable National and State Educational Standards including the NCLB Act.
