“In 2004, McDonald’s phased out its super size fries and drinks. The decision was widely attributed to “Super Size Me,” an independent film that documented the filmmaker’s “growth” as he ate nothing but McDonald’s food for a month. A company spokesperson claimed at the time that the decision had “nothing to do with that whatsoever.” Yeah, right.
In fact, super sizes are alive and well, not just at fast-food chains, but at restaurants of all stripes. Of course, menus don’t call them super-sized. They’re just the typical servings we now think of as normal.”
