We, the overfed and sugared-out people of these United States hereby declare the end of the Super Size Me era. More than that — actually MUCH MORE THAN THAT — we are staring a new era: the Super Unsize Me era. Here and now.
Have we been lured into consuming more calories with less nutrients in the last 40 years? Yes. It may not be politically correct to say so, but it is the undeniable. We have also been, by and large, willing participants, both as producers and consumers. That’s true too, isn’t it?
We also have also been told by others — and ourselves — that "Enough is not enough.” Guess what? Over 200 million of us are either overweight or obese. 13 million of us are diabetic. The costs are enormous. Personally — pain, suffering, loss of self esteem, and shorter life. Medically — overworked doctors, overtaxed healthcare facilities, and higher insurance payments. Economically — over 800 billion dollars a year in direct and indirect costs, as well as lost productivity, just in the US alone. More than enough, isn’t it? Much, MUCH MORE!
Therefore we hereby proclaim that we are entitled to, and shall:
- Hear the truth about what we eat
- Learn the ways of healthy eating
- Adopt healthy eating practices
- Buy only healthy food products
- Be served only healthy meals
- Lead happy, healthy, and productive lives
This is what Super Unsize Me is about — to bring you the knowledge we all are entitled to: Healthy, wholesome, sugar free, and delicious foods, cuisine, and life styles.
Enough said — what’s on the plate today?

But, if you are like 90 percent of Americans, you are eating the wrong kind of fat most of the time. Time for an oil change!

Skyscraper Farming: An urban green solution in Sweden
Several years ago a Swedish-American company called Plantagon unveiled plans for a series of massive skyscraper greenhouses that stood to transform urban farming in large cities.
