To anybody out there who consumes food, you need to see Fat Head. Did you see “Super-size Me”? You need to see this movie. Did you NOT see “Super-size Me”? You need to see this movie. I think that covers everybody.
Fat Head is a documentary by Tom Naughton (who is described as a comedian, computer programmer, filmmaker, and an “edutainer”). He reveals the lies of “Super-Size Me” but also gives a first class re-education in all the things we thought we knew about nutrition. Click here to watch the trailer on YouTube.
For the first half of the movie I laughed out loud several times. For the second half of the movie I was too disgusted with being lied to (not by the filmmaker, but by the creators of the “food pyramid”, and others). His blog is here.
Will everybody agree with this guy? Nope. But I do, and if you want to see for yourself, it’s one of the movies that is available for streaming on Netflix. If you don’t have Netflix, I’m sure you can rent it somewhere.
