McDonald's has announced the elimination of its "Supersized" fries and drinks. I'm puzzled somewhat by the reason the article gives:
The move comes as the world's largest restaurant company, and fast-food chains in general, are under growing public pressure to give consumers healthier food options in a nation that has suddenly become aware of its bulging waistline and the health dangers that come with it.

Now why is it that eliminating choices, somehow increases my options? When I go to McDonald's (rarely) I'm asked if I want to supersize. I simply say 'no'. No one forces excessive numbers of fries down my throat.

Your bad eating isn't McDonald's fault.
