FMTV - Fat Head

Fat Head

Runtime: 106m 23s | Release date: 2009

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 health writer, Tom Naughton, replies to the"Super Size Me" 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.

*Disclaimer

Please be advised that although we feel there are important messages in this film, we also acknowledge that there may be conflicting ideologies that challenge beliefs. We like to encourage our viewers to do their own diligent research to determine which is the right approach for them as we regard nutrition and health as being highly individualized and not a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

I’m not convinced this is the type of documentary that I would expect to find at FMTV My question is “is there enough positive information for someone to take away from watching and listening to the content in this doco”?

I love 99% of the Content on FMTV (I was diagnosed Bowel Cancer in 2017, so it’s mainly the Cancer-related content that I watch).

However, I have to agree with your comment regarding this Documentary. I watched “Supersize Me” when it came out & I think it shared a valuable Message. THIS on the other hand, feels like it’s undoing the positivity & the good that ‘Supersize Me’ did within our Modern Society. So, it’s not my cup of tea either ;) but I wonder if we’re in the minority 🤷🏻‍♂️

Agreed Paula and Rick. While there were some interesting points, I fear the surface level takeaways - such as eating McD's or fast food all day, you can lose weight and lower levels in blood testing therefore its healthy! A diet of burgers and fried chicken has no nutritional value in keeping you healthy and functioning. He was consuming the very oils that he was berating the government for adding into fast food restaurants and then was happy about his results - very consumer confusing. Confusion presented on "bad" carbs - highly processed food vs ancient grains/fruit/veggies - information lacked good alternatives and instead the message was cut way down on carbs - more meaningful around processed crap carbs but not every carb. The message that ALL sugar is bad - simply not true. Processed sugars that are an American diet staple are, but not naturally derived sugars such as in fruits. This could be consumer confusing and have people missing out on necessary and needed nutrients found in fruit. Not much info on American portions and overeating - I can overeat on the good stuff too if I'm not present with what I am consuming. No information on how his chosen diet affected depression, arthritis, autoimmune disease, fatigue - all of which the majority of our population is plagued with - and how harmful fried, fatty foods are to these disorders. Just because you "feel good" on a given day, doesn't mean that your body is healthy. Any good messages got lost for me in the overabundance of consumer confusing & misguided information. I really enjoy many of the documentaries and the information on FMTV. With every one of them, you have to tease out a few things that maybe don't fit for you, but this one was a big miss for more reasons than it was a win.

I think there's a lot of baloney in this documentary. But he makes one good point: it's all about choice

This documentary was ok, but rather long-winded and honestly, too repetitive.

At first, the vegetarian in me, was offended. But after watching it all the way to the end, it’s solidifies what I’ve always thought to be a “healthy diet“. If we ate the way we did in the 40s and 50s we wouldn’t have a lot of the issues that we have today. If meat eaters could get their meat the way our grandparents did, there would be no need for animal activists. By the way, I am a vegetarian because I simply do not like the taste of meat...
