Fat Head the Movie
Yes, it looks corny, but give it a chance! I was making kilts one day not long ago, browsing through Netflix On Demand looking for something to watch, and I ran across this movie. Amazing! Not only is it really funny and entertaining, it’s super-informative and educational!
I found that I had read every single book he referenced in the movie, including Why We Get Fat, and What to Do About It, and Good Calories, Bad Calories. The next day I had the whole family sit down and watch it. They loved it, all the way from 12 years old on up! They’ve been listening to me talk about this stuff for the last year or so, but watching the movie really made it sink in—i.e, “Wow! Dad isn’t the only person talking about this stuff!”
So, I bought a bunch of copies to give away to friends and family. Then, I decided to look into buying wholesale so I can share with all of you too! I believe this DVD is so important that I’m giving it away at less than cost! I don’t want to make any money on this DVD if it means that someone might not watch it. Please give it a try! I’ll even offer to take it back if you don’t like it. (Try that with any other movie!)
DVD, 104 min., widescreen, international format (plays on any DVD player in any country).
Have you seen the news stories about the obesity epidemic? Did you see Super Size Me? Then guess what? … You’ve been fed a load of bologna.
Comedian (and former health writer) Tom Naughton replies to the blame-McDonald’s crowd by losing weight on a fat-laden fast-food diet while demonstrating that nearly everything we’ve been told about obesity and healthy eating is wrong.
Along with some delicious parody of Super Size Me, Naughton serves up plenty of no-bologna facts that will stun most viewers.
- The obesity “epidemic” has been wildly exaggerated by the CDC.
- People the government classifies as “overweight” have longer lifespans than people classified as “normal weight.”
- Having low cholesterol is unhealthy.
- Lowfat diets can lead to depression and type II diabetes.
- Saturated fat doesn’t cause heart disease — but sugars, starches and processed vegetable oils do.
- There’s never been a single study that proves saturated fat causes heart disease.
- As heart-disease rates were skyrocketing in the mid-1900s, consumption of animal fat was going down, not up. Consumption of vegetable oils, however, was going up dramatically.
- Half of all heart-attack victims have normal or low cholesterol. Autopsies performed on heart-attack victims routinely reveal plaque-filled arteries in people whose cholesterol was low (as low as 115 in one case).
- Asian Indians – half of whom are vegetarians – have one of the highest rates of heart disease in the entire world. Yup, that fatty meat will kill you, all right.
- When Morgan Spurlock tells you that a McDonald’s salad supplies almost a day’s allowance of fat, he’s basing that statement on the FDA’s low-fat/high-carbohydrate dietary guidelines, which in turn are based on … absolutely nothing. There’s no science behind those guidelines; they were simply made up by a congressional committee.
- Kids who were diagnosed as suffering from ADD have been successfully treated by re-introducing natural saturated fats into their diets. Your brain is made largely of fat.
- Many epileptics have reduced or eliminated seizures by adopting a diet low in sugar and starch and high in saturated animal fats.
- Despite everything you’ve heard about saturated fat being linked to cancer, that link is statistically weak. However, there is a strong link between sugar and cancer. In Europe, doctors tell patients, “Sugar feeds cancer.”
- Being fat is not, in and of itself, bad for your health. The behaviors that can make you fat – eating excess sugar and starch, not getting any exercise – can also ruin your health, and that’s why being fat is associated with bad health. But it’s entirely possible to be fat and healthy. It’s also possible to be thin while developing Type II diabetes and heart disease.
- Saturated fat and cholesterol help produce testosterone. When men limit their saturated fat, their testosterone level drops. So, regardless of what a famous vegan chef believes, saturated fat does not impair sexual performance.
