Fiona has left on a jet plane~ sob sob
Two of the few things I like about Chinese New Year are angpow and public holiday. Other than that, everything sucks. Shops are closed and most of my friends aren’t around. Today, I combed the entire OUG for food. None were open. I had to resort to leftover economic rice sold by one of the rare shops that were open.
Then I wanted to get a haircut. And sadly, the entire stretches of saloons were closed due to Chinese New Year.
Since no Chinese eateries were open, for the past 3 days, I have been eating McDonalds, lunch, lunch and breakfast. I heard about this guy who did an experiment on himself by eating fast food for 30 days, 3 meals a day. After 30 days, his cholesterol level shot up, his liver was poisoned and his entire health deteriorated. I was immediately disgusted by that news and skipped McDonalds on Day 4!
January 22, 2004 — LAST February, Morgan Spurlock decided to become a gastronomical guinea pig.
His mission: To eat three meals a day for 30 days at McDonald’s and document the impact on his health.
Scores of cheeseburgers, hundreds of fries and dozens of chocolate shakes later, the formerly strapping 6-foot-2 New Yorker – who started out at a healthy 185 pounds – had packed on 25 pounds.
But his supersized shape was the least of his problems.
Within a few days of beginning his drive-through diet, Spurlock, 33, was vomiting out the window of his car, and doctors who examined him were shocked at how rapidly Spurlock’s entire body deteriorated.
“It was really crazy – my body basically fell apart over the course of 30 days,” Spurlock told The Post.
His liver became toxic, his cholesterol shot up from a low 165 to 230, his libido flagged and he suffered headaches and depression.
Spurlock charted his journey from fit to flab in a tongue-in-cheek documentary, which he has taken to the Sundance Film Festival with the hopes of getting a distribution deal.
