Doctor calls for laws to end ‘Super Size Me’ culture

Cutting the size of fast-food meals by up to 30% would have an 'enormous' impact, says endocrinologist

An endocrinologist is calling for nationwide laws to reduce portion sizes in fast-food restaurants to stem the obesity crisis.

Brisbane-based Dr Sultan Linjawi says the approach to managing people with obesity focuses too much on the individual, instead of restaurants and junk food companies, which are allowed to push large portions and promote unhealthy foods.
