"THE AMOUNT OF MONEY IT COSTS TO UPGRADE TO LARGER SERVING SIZES IS USUALLY SMALL, BUT OFTEN YOU ARE BUYING EXTRA CALORIES YOU DON'T NEED."
According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest..for just pennies you can upgrade from a McDonald's Quarter pounder with cheese, small fires and small coke to the extra-value meal of Quarter pounder with cheese, large fries and large coke and you increase your calories by a large amount..nearly 500.

(STANDUP: DREW LEVINSON )


"LET'S SAY FOR EXAMPLE YOU GO TO 7-11 AND YOU ORDER A DOUBLE GULP INSTEAD OF A REGULAR GULP, IT IS ONLY 37 MORE CENTS FOR 48 MORE OUNCES, BUT YOU ALSO GET 450 MORE CALORIES, THAT'S THE SAME AS A McDonald's QUARTER POUNDER WITH CHEESE."
And this "value marketing" as it's called is contributing to the rising rates of obesity in adults and children. Experts say obesity costs 117 billion dollars a year in health care costs and will soon overtake smoking as the number one killer in this country..
