Supersize indicates to sizably increase the amount or the extent of something.[1]

The phrase was particularly used by McDonald's restaurants to upsize their French fries and soft drinks to an extra-large size. In the United States, McDonald's used the supersized option from April 1992- March 2004. The company stated the need to simplify their menu and to offer healthier food choices.[2]
