Added DiffLines:

** He also went from working out regularly to an almost completely sedentary lifestyle.


Added DiffLines:

** More an artistic license to scientific studies in general. Spurlock refused to release his actual data from the "experiment". Most any experimental scientist will tell you that's a hallmark of bad science. Several individuals have made counter documentaries eating at McDonald's for a month or longer while maintaining or losing weight.

* CaptainObviousAesop: Some critics accuse the film of having this: people already know that fast food isn't healthy and that eating more than you should will make you sick. The film does address this somewhat by purporting to reveal ''how'' unhealthy the food is and how the (super-sized) portions are unnecessarily large.

** Morgan's side-project showing how long it takes fast food to spoil (where the [=McDonald's=] items barely change over the course of months) is ''very'' misleading. Mold requires moisture to grow, and the Mickie D burger and fries dried out too quickly to be a suitable environment. That has less to do with what they're made out of and more to do with how they're cut. The thin fries and patties simply don't retain water for very long.

* SuspiciouslySpecificDenial: Meta-Example. sometime after the movie debuted nation wide, [=McDonald's=] got rid of their Super size option on the menu, stating that it was not this movie that influenced the decision.

* DocumentaryOfLies: [[Film/FatHead Another documentary film maker]] has accused him of outright fraud in his results; indeed, Morgan has refused to make his food logs public, possibly because even basic math indicates that he could not have followed his own rules and consumed 5,000 calories per day as he claimed. More scientific and less informal studies have found it impossible to replicate his results. He also stated that after [=McDonald's=] stopped super-sizing that he didn't recall seeing any newspapers with the headline, "MCDONALD'S STOPS SUPERSIZING! NATION BECOMES THIN!"

* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: A number of critics compared the vomiting scene to the way heroin addicts often throw up when first using their drug of choice. Spurlock seems to be saying that fast food is just as addictive as heroin.
