Fill up on entertainment this holiday season, rather than ending up looking like a beach ball from Supersize Me.

There’s nothing better than kicking back and doing nothing over the festive break. And that means lots of eating, especially in the Christmas week! But non-stop bingeing will leave you rounder than a soccer ball – especially if you’re filling up on junk food. Don’t believe us? Sign up with internet streaming service Showmax and watch Morgan Spurlock’s documentary Supersize Me.

 As a social experiment, Morgan eats nothing but burgers, fries and other fast food three times a day for an entire month. And the results are scary! “The biggest demon in the US (and world) is obesity,” he says. “Plus, I was massively depressed by day 2 of eating nothing but burgers and fries. I would eat this food and feel great for half an hour but then I would feel crushed.” By day 30, his entire physique has changed and Morgan is desperate for fruit, veggies and clean food. “I’ve never been happier to eat lettuce!” he laughs.

 Instead of living only on junk food like Morgan, why not fill your plate with over 35 000 series episodes, movies and doccies from Showmax? They’ve got everything from action shows Ray Donovan and iNumber Number to sport doccies about Ronaldo and Bolt, local soapies like Isibaya, Skeem Saam and tonnes more!
