FMTV - Unsupersize Me

Unsupersize Me

Runtime: 76m 25s | Release date: 2013

This film features: T. Colin Campbell.

Unsupersize Me documents the inspiring story of Juan-Carlos Asse, owner of Zen Fitness, a personal training studio in Gainesville, Florida, and his quest to prove that a whole foods, plant-based diet coupled with an exercise regimen is capable of remarkably and rapidly improving the health of any and every individual. Asse takes his lifelong passions of fitness and nutrition out to demonstrate what he has witnessed in his training studio time and time again. The plant-based diet with exercise is the most effective and expeditious way to obtain optimal health.

Asse embarks on a journey with Tracy Ryan, a woman who has been morbidly obese her entire life, guiding her from poor health to a new life - one she could have never envisioned. Watch the amazing transformation as Ryan loses 200 pounds in a single year! The film reveals an interesting twist divulging Asse's past, a seven year sentence served in federal prison for drug charges. While in prison, Asse committed himself to the study and mastery of nutrition and fitness. He uses his incarceration experience to help motivate Ryan. Ryan, once entrapped by her own unhealthy body, escapes her imprisonment and ultimately regains her life. Ryan metamorphoses from a 345 lb. inactive woman burdened by her weight to a healthy, active woman climbing mountains and running half marathons; a woman living life to its fullest.

Tracey's journey was amazing; made me tear up a few times.
Question: Did she have to remove excess skin, or did the gradual weight loss help to shrink skin naturally?

That's true Clydella. No, she did not remove any excess skin. Healthy diet and exercise did the trick ~ Ivory :)

He is inspiring and she did amazingly..!! Well done you look great..!! However I wonder if you have a trainer every day how much that keeps you going the thing I struggle with is motivation with exercise. I weigh 157lbs but know I’m in need of loosing 28lbs my health has flagged up a few things in the past two years. I do eat meat and fish but lots of fruit and veggies too. Maybe Vega is an option but I struggle not eating fish more than meat.

Hi Melanie, with so much information out there about Weight Loss, it can be really tough sometimes to know where to focus your attention. Here at Food Matters we believe there is no 'one-size fits all' approach to weight loss, and do our best to give you the information needed to make informed choices about what's right for you and your body. There is also some other really great content on FMTV that you may be interested in, such as the documentary 'Miso Hungry'. There are also some amazing guided programs such as the 21 Day Program that gives you daily meal plans, recipes, yoga and meditation videos; it's a great way to get started on a whole food diet, or just press the reset button. Thousands around the world have now taken part in the 21 Day Program and many have reported incredible weight loss and health benefits from following along. I hope this is helpful. We know how overwhelming it can seem, so if you have any question along the way, please don't hesitate to get in contact :) All the best! ❤ ~ Iris
