Yep. That documentary, Super Size Me, talks the same thing.

The coke is the worst case - I see so many people addicted in coke these days, and with so little instruction about chemistry and biology...
(Phosphorus vs. calcium equilibrium goes to hell when you drink too many coke.)

Tomorrow they'll be selling coke in 1gl glasses, and someone will buy it. And, 20 years after, complaining about the bones.

Somewhat related. Perhaps (my guess; tl, dr) due to a lag with the increase in serving size, the "nutritional facts" can be very misleading:

I think people here are so fat because they are always munching on something.

Indeed that's what some researchers[weasel word] have found[citation needed], if I recall. People seem to think they're following reasonably balanced diet (a "lifetime balanced diet", not one of these "lose 25kg in one week" diets), but when there's someone else actually keeping track of how much they eat, they confirm that the aggregation of "marginal eating" winds up making up for quite a few unnacounted calories.
