I saw SUPER SIZE ME at the weekend. It took some serious amount of googling to find the McDonalds site (supersize me - the debate) which they advertise before the film, because, let's face it folks, once you put a hyphen in your web address, things aren't looking good.

It's a very engaging, compelling movie, where you know the punchline, but you're still surprised. Have to admit I looked away during the stomach stapling surgery - life's too short to have some images in my head.

What's it really about? We're not citizens anymore, we're consumers. Of food, energy, the earth's precious resources; it's a 24-hour leisure-go-round.

One thing: I've eaten less since Saturday night.
