We were right.
Thing is, I've eaten hardly any meat or deep-fried food for the past 3 weeks, so the McDonald's meal (which was the first I'd had since... well, 3 or 4 weeks ago) really made me feel like somebody had pumped my chest full of grease... and watching Super Size Me straight after probably just made me feel worse. Ugh.
Anyway, I am totally floored by the amount of fast food that Americans consume. It's terrifying.
