Morgan Spurlock, filmmaker and star of the documentary film ''Super Size Me,'' talks about making the film at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, in Aspen, Colo., Wednesday, March 3, 2004. The documentary, which chronicles the deterioration of Spurlock's health during a monthlong experiment eating nothing but McDonald's food, won a directing prize at the Sundance Film Festival and is set for wide release this spring. McDonald's announced Wednesday, it is getting rid of the extra-large portions that had become one of its signatures. The burger giant said it has begun phasing out Supersize fries and drinks in its more than 13,000 U.S. restaurants and will stop selling them altogether by year's end, except in promotions. The company cited the need to trim a menu that has expanded in recent years and said eliminating super-sizing is only part of that effort. The downsizing of super-sizing comes as fast-food companies are under intense pressure to cater to Americans' growing preference for healthier food options. (AP Photo/E Pablo Kosmicki)
