However, the strongest point of significance for this technique is after the fast-food experiment of eating McDonalds for a full month. After many tests and several concerned comments, Spurlock confron... ... middle of paper ... ... Me). Such suggestion persuades the audience to consider their eating choices and shy away from the fast-food industry, which could eventually lead towards a variety of health issues and complications. Morgan Spurlock endured a course of fat, sugar, and calories, in order to support his idea against fast-food companies and the decline of health rates. The combination of the rhetorical and cinematic techniques of logos, images, and ethos, created an award-winning, national documentary that has received much recognition for its inspiring work.
You pull into the drive-thru, roll down your window, and say, “Can I get a sausage McMuffin meal please?” A voice comes out through the speaker. “I’m sorry, we stopped serving breakfast.” It’s 11:05. Everyone has experienced the horror. Everyone knows the pain of having to go without the Oh-So-Yummy-In-My-Tumminess that is McDonald’s breakfast. For years, McDonald’s breakfast hours have been law.
My sister would read me stories from her own books and it confused my little head, considering that the level of education she was in was high for me at that time. As I think of it now, it was not a bad idea since it prepared me for a more complex learning to come ahead. My teacher taught me to write my name and simple words. A few years passed by and I started to gain confidence in my reading. I would go through my father’s newspaper and read, though I stammered reading word by word.
Americans are becoming obese because, they are living these trends every day. Every day Americans grab-a-bite at a... ... middle of paper ... ...s by throat. The fact is hard to swallow but there is proof behind my point. If one were to speculate on the causes of obesity, the reason why people are becoming obese is inexpensive fast food restaurants, sedentary lifestyles, eating disorders, and genetics,” says Dr.Cerulli. Mr. Sanders replies, “How could I prepare myself next time I come in for a checkup?” Dr.Cerulli counters, “We must create a new trend to do with this old one.” However, now that one is able to identify the causes of why so many Americans are becoming obese, a new approach to the trend could propose a solution to the rise of obesity.
Not only are they mainly targeting children but also they target low income families and helping cause obesity in their income groups, with their low prices and dollar menus these families are vulnerable to their advertisements. They also falsely advertise their food healthy products to try and convince their target market that their food is healthy and inexpensive. Fast food advertising has caused obesity in the U.S. Fast food advertising has caused childhood obesity by targeting children. Richard Feloni argues that "American children see over a thousand fast food commercials on television every year" (parag.1). He further explains how fast food restaurants like McDonalds targets mainly children by having hundreds of advertisements mainly targeting children every year.
They told us about a child dealing with his parents looming divorce, and a young lady contemplating abortion. They told us stories about life, about love, and about loss. This is why I contend that literature is related to everyday life because it is largely created from everyday life. Literature has many forms including, poetry, fiction, and drama. I had lost touch with all three of these forms prior to this class.
I had never been a very good writer, but I was trying to start a letter to my family so that I could send it off easily within a few days. My mom had written out an address book for me with people to write in my free time. She had told me how great a support letters can be and encouraged that I get into the habit of writing them. I thought I would give it a try, but my thoughts were completely garbled at the moment, and I kept getting caught up trying to fix each and every grammar error as I wrote so that as I modified one error it would contradict something else. I would change the second error to fit the immediate context, but by the time I reached the end of the sentence I had forgotten what my original thought was, and I was left trying to make sense out of a string of unrelated ideas.
It is nearly impossible to turn on the television or radio and not be hit with advertisements introducing the latest fast food trend – fresh and healthy food options. More often, the media bombards us with slogans such as Subway’s common pitch to “eat fresh” or McDonald’s million-dollar advertisement campaign to try the new fruit and walnut salad. Attention has made an abrupt turn from the greasy, deep-fried originals at the fast food chains to more health conscious food choices. Even a documentary of a man named Morgan Spurlock made headlines and won awards when he ate McDonald’s three times a day for a month and publicized the effects through a movie called Super Size Me. Shortly after Super Size Me caught high publicity attention, McDonald’s has introduced three “garden fresh salads.” Other popular fast food chains were not far behind the healthy menu options McDonald’s has offered, and soon numerous salad, yogurt, fruit, and grilled chicken food items popped up on every fast food menu.
By presenting the issue in a documentary and allowing viewers to watch the duration of the month, the film was able to instill a fear in the minds of many and influence individuals to eliminate fast food from their diets. The power of Supersize Me reflects the constant debate of the global obesity epidemic within the public sphere and continues to influence individuals around the world to think twice about eating fast food.
After a long cross country meet, I am exhausted. All that energy it takes for me to run, also makes me quite hungry. I almost always asked my parents to grab a quick bite before the road; however, I always felt sick after chowing down on those burgers and fries. I wanted to know what really went inside of the food I ate on the go. I wanted to know how this entire franchise got its start.
