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.


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.

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...

This was a very interesting film! Thank you for adding it to the list of documentaries on FMTV. I eat a mostly plant-based diet, but the information & science that was presented still emphasized what I’ve been learning in my own journey— that fats are not the enemy, but carbohydrates (especially refined, simple carbohydrates) & sugar are among the more damaging “foods” we can consume. ***Note to viewers: I definitely recommend watching through to the end. At the beginning, it may seem like it’s message goes contrary to basic nutrition &/or the core beliefs of many people, but as the doc continues on... I think the basic notion & thrust of the film is sound & reasonable; so much that I believe even those who choose not to consume animal products could see the logic in choosing to eat whole plant foods with higher (healthy) fat content, & lower in carbohydrates & sugar (especially refined sugars). And also, that the diet that is commonly believed to be “healthy” is actually far from it— in fact, quite the opposite! So, in a nutshell, it was still highly informative, & even fairly entertaining!

I get it what he's saying: watch how much you're eating and then you will loose weight. BUT, it's not THAT easy. If it were all people were slim. Not necessarily healthy but slim. What I missed was, was he satisfied with his portions? How long did it take until he got hungry again? Because that's the bit which makes people fail: hunger. And when you're in a circle of sugar-carbohydrates-fat-big portions, it's really hard to get out again.
And I hate when they say: it's all your fault!! Well, in a way it is. BUT, as I said above, it's not THAT easy!
Could it be he was paid by Mc Donalds? It sounded like a big commercial for them.

interesting counterpoints to Supersize Me. I love Morgan Spurlock btw! I liked the simplicity of the film in describing some of the medical processes, the way a government can breed fear, and the take on processed foods. I will stick to my plant-based diet as this has worked well for me and my chronic diseases prior to my introduction to all of the processed food stuffs...i am glad the film is here to provide a sense of balance...

This film is completely ridiculous! I'm reluctant to say exactly what I think on here because it'll probably just be a string of expletives. My only comfort is that he's a comedian... which is ok, because this film is a complete joke. FYI: If you're going to Juice, do it properly! Who the heck juices JUST FRUIT in the morning? No wonder he crashed! That's Juicing 101 FAILED right there! Anyway, I'm just ranting! This will certainly help obese, unhealthy people feel better until they get some chronic disease. Life is all about balance - so this film balances-out all the other incredible films on the FMTV Platform. Thank you... I guess :-|
