Anybody See The Movie Fat Head?



Recommended Posts

Just wondering how much of that information is true. I'm enough of a skeptic to believe all the parts in the movie that talked about all the researchers and politicians who had ulterior motives. But something in me tells me the maker of the movie also had an ulterior motive....but that's because I'm such a skeptic. I've also done just enough research in my life to know that for every "fact" you can find on the Internet, you find someone else who contradicts that "fact" with their own counter "facts".

So does anyone here know the "facts"?

I saw the movie. All I took from it was that we shouldn't blame the big corps for gaining weight. no one is forced to say yes to super size. He also tried to discredit the bio Super Size Me. What I took from it: take responsibility for my own weight gain.

I've seen it. Well, he called out Super Size Me (his point about the supposed calorie totals not being possible was very interesting to me). Basically, he kept his calories under 2000 a day and ate at McDonald's every day for 30 days. Plus he exercised. He didn't drink sugary sodas, etc.

I'm a huge believer in the damage that a really high-carb diet can do. So, on that front I believe a lot of what he said. The Gary Taubes books are excellent, and he did mention them.

Just watched it! While Morgan Spurlock may be pushing a vegan agenda, I do think there is a problem with our food industry. Hormones, GMO's, anti-biotics...I am not going to be vegan, but I do like organic meats. McDonald's uses fillers in their meats...Gross. I just like fresh foods. I also wonder if my success with the VSG is also due to the fact that I pretty much ate Protein most of the time. I do eat sugar, but not a lot! I eat chips sometimes, but not a lot! I don't know what is right or wrong, but the paleo diet seems right.
