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 introduced the supersized option in April 1992. The company announced in March 2004 that it would phase out the option, citing needs to simplify their menu and to offer healthier food choices.[2]
