There is an elitism to people like Morgan Spurlock and others who think they know what is better for you than you do. To tell you what to eat, to say what your children should and shouldn't be allowed to eat in schools. What restaurants can be built around your children's high schools, universities, and campuses. It's bullshit and unconstitutional.
This, this, this, this, this.
All other things aside, how much you eat is infinitely worse than what. There was a documentary on the fattest man in the UK a while ago that basically proved it, since he was actually eating all-healthy stuff. The problem was that he was eating a month's supply of it in a week.
Saying any type of food is "bad" for you is childish. Fat (regardless of type) is good if you're doing a lot of exercise to balance it out so it doesn't build up; vitamins are poisonous in large enough quantities. The dose, not the substance, is what you have to watch for, and as long as you do that, this whole diet shit is really easy. Energy in > Energy out if you want to lose weight; Energy in = Energy out if you want to stay the same.
Fuck the people trying to make it complicated just so they can sound better than you when it comes to how you choose to feed yourself.
