Default Fat head

A little bored and browsing through my Comcast "Streampix" menu last night...I came across a film by stand-up comedian and film maker, Tom Naughton called Fat Head (106 min).

"A comedian replies to the 'Super Size Me' crowd by losing weight on a fast-food diet while demonstrating that almost everything you think you know about the obesity 'epidemic' and healthy eating is wrong."

I think by now you and I are up to our ears in 'how-we-oughta-eat' documentaries...but I was curious as to what kind of a spin a comedian might have on this. I mean...it was TV...I could always turn this one off, too.

Basically it reinforces the LC/HF diet in layman terms that takes most of the 'tech' out of it. For everyone new to LC/HF I recommend this. For everyone's who's been LC/HF for awhile...it's still informative and entertaining. If you do watch it, or some of it...lemme know what you think. Enjoy...

Great movie and very entertaining. I've seen it at least twice. To me, what's even more important than yet another proof of the efficacy of LC/Hf is that he really put to rest the absurd new-age myths about "junk food" or worse, "processed foods".

Those are NOT "things" and they don't group foods into anything useful. Some "junk" or "processed" foods may be detrimental to health, just as some natural foods may be detrimental to health - take PURE, NATURAL and unfiltered sugar cane juice, for example - every bit as harmful as the whitest white sugar.

So, he showed clearly that by far the most important factor in food is the macro-nutrient content, not these mythological value judgments that have no basis in reality or science. I thought that was the main point of the film.
