Super Size Me Super Size Me is a 2004 documentary film written, produced, directed by, and starring Morgan Spurlock , an American independent filmmaker . Spurlock's film follows a 30-day time period (February to beginning of March 2003) during which he limits himself to only eat McDonald's food. The film documents this lifestyle's drastic effects on Spurlock's physical and psychological well-being, and explores the fast food industry's corporate influence, including how it encourages poor nutrition for its own profit. During the filming, Spurlock dined at McDonald's restaurants three times per day, sampling every item on the chain's menu at least once. He also "super-sized" his meal every time he was asked. Spurlock consumed an average of 5,000 cal (the equivalent of 9.26 Big Macs ) per day during the experiment. As a result, the then-32-year-old Spurlock gained 24½ lbs. (1¾ stone, 11.1 kg), a 13% body mass increase, and experienced mood swings , sexual dysfunction , and liver damage. It took Spurlock fourteen months to lose the weight he gained.
