It's All About the Diet

Last night I finally got around to watching Super Size Me, in which Morgan Spurlock eats nothing but McDonalds' food for 30 days. In addition he performed no exercise during the period, and restricted walking to the pathetically low average of less than 5000 steps per day. Whilst I wasn't at all surprised to see a few health problems appear over the month; I was quite amazed at their severity. In fact, it took over a year for him to regain his former weight - let alone his former health. Very interesting documentary. The news this morning was filled with stories linking diet not simply to physical health problems, but also several mental health issues. It's clear that a lot more research needs to be done. As for my own diet experimentation, this morning was the first fortnightly record of a few basic measurements. The primary goal is weight gain, however I'll also be tracking a few of the other regulars.
