Fat Head

1 min read


While most people saw the documentary Super Size Me as an expose of the fast food industry, comedian and former health writer Tom Naughton saw it as a dare: He’d show that you could lose weight on a diet of burgers and fries. In addition to chronicling Naughton’s weight drop, the film provides interviews with doctors, nutritionists and others to drive home his thesis that most of what we know about “healthy eating” is wrong.

  1. ive done this diet several times BUT he could have had fries and soda as long as he stood around 2 thousand calories …pretty much same result ….majority of people not tracking are easily around 3k or more
    great movie!

  2. this is stupid, but he could only work with the information that was available at that time, eating mac sometimes is not so bad for you, but you can get addicted to it, what he is eating is almost halve what he supposed to eat on 1 day,

    take some fries with it, a soda, fries medium 340, burger, 940, soda 310 is 1590, that's just 1 meal.
    and just talking about the kcal, and not the fat and sugar.

  3. Amazing, extremely well produced documentary that captures so many aspects of the food industry mine field we have become a victim of. Unfortunately my first 50yrs I did not have this information. Fortunately for the last year I have. Thank you to all who assisted in producing it.

  4. I think this doc is more truthful than supersize me, because it's less extreme.
    But still, he did not factor in some things:
    He lost more weight than he should have: yeah mate. Cause you lost waterweight too.
    Starch does not act exactly like sugar in the body, there is a difference between glucose and fructose and what they do in the body and the liver, and sugar contains a molecule of fructose while starch does not.
    For more info see "the bitter truth about sugar".
    That does not mean we should only eat starches, in fact I limit them myself somewhat, but it is a bit too easy to just throw everything into the same bucket

  5. I can't agree with the "Advertising to kids is part of free speech" part. It just fuels the obesity problem. There's some single moms who have 2 jobs, why make their lives harder by making their kids want junk food. And u just blame it on the parents not saying "no". Why create the problem in the first place?

  6. Moose and Squirrel LOL!!! I used to eat at that McDonalds hes interviewing people at frequently. Its on Hollywood Blvd. I worked a few doors down.

  7. "I almost never drink the stuff because I feel lousy when I do."

    When I was a kid, I use to drink a lot of soda. I was a sodaholic essentially. But a few years ago I just felt like shit. And realized I needed to change my habits as I got older.

    So I started eating healthier. Eating salads and protein. But more importantly I cut back my daily intake of soda and substituted to water. And low and behold, I lost like 50 pounds in about a year. Most of it was because I cut back the soda. All that sugar was too much.

    Now whenever I do drink soda, it's not as much as I use to. Because my body has gotten so use to water, whenever I drink soda, it feels HEAVY in my stomach. And it does make me feel lousy sometimes.

  8. Being that I literally can’t gain weight, much like his son, Super-size me when I was in the 8th grade broke me emotionally. i have long since had body trouble. This video is so important.


    “Men use more energy than women, even to breathe…They need more calories than women.
    Higher levels of activity require more fuel, so his dietary needs are quantitatively greater than hers.”

    “Men need a ready, steady supply of zinc in their diet because a lack of it impairs the metabolism of
    androgens, which are the essential male hormones; and where is zinc most readily found? In red meat.”

    “…phytates (in whole wheat/whole grain products) block the zinc uptake. Phytates also bind with iron
    & calcium, two other essential micronutrients, & so prevent their absorption. Phytates are undesirable,
    but the protein in red meat acts as an anti-phytate agent.”

    “Soy is the richest source of estrogen (a feminizing hormone) in today’s diet,
    and estrogen & similar substances are known to cause reproductive tract disorders in men.
    Soy is the richest source of phytoestrogens & its consumption, especially as a substitute
    for meat protein, has increased enormously in the past two or more decades.”

    “Does it matter that the professionals—the nutritionists & the dieticians—are so overwhelmingly
    female? Yes it does, for they are imposing on men a diet which is ill-based on science, ill-suited to
    the male’s metabolism & drawn more from feminine fantasy than from food science.”

    (quoting Dr. Anita Wells, regarding the results of a test conducted on a group of men & women):
    “‘Everyone says that eating low-fat diets will cut cholesterol, but the science doesn’t demonstrate it.’”

    –“Why Men Don’t Iron” by Anne & Bill Moir, 1999

  10. Calories in vs calories out people it's not hard. Consume less calories than you expel and you will lose weight. Consume more calories than you expel and you will gain weight.

  11. I hate both this documentary and supersize me

    Will I gain weight if I eat nothing but garbage for a month and not work out? Yes

    Will I lose weight if I eat garbage for a month and work out?

    There I saved you a total of 3 hours

  12. 50 Years Ago, Sugar Industry Quietly Paid Scientists To Point Blame At Fat

    FYI: You're right no one forces anyone to eat the food, it's the fact that it made available so that people don't have to have a home-cooked meal. This guy is arrogant to claim there isn't a problem with fast-food companies and maybe because he is being paid to protect the "fast-food industry."

  13. I have many questions in the end. And just so many things are like wtf. I'm having a hard time believed in that eating process junk food is actually healthier than eating a vegan diet, and I'm not even vegan. Macdonald salad has 730 calories and 1,400 milligrams of salt. The ice tea has 59 grams of sugar. That's insane and definitely not something better than a vegan diet.

  14. At first I didn't like this documentary because it seemed like it wanted to say that fast food is totally OK and not unhealthy. But then, as it progressed, it became clear that they just wanted to address the real issue with food. And that's the same thing I've been hearing from more and more sources. I now believe that's the truth.
    Well, hearing that carbos are the real bad macro for you is something that is both shocking to hear, but also completely logical and natural. You wonder to yourself:"Why didn't I and others realized that before?".
    Well, I had already started eating as less carbs as I can in my diet. So far I feel more energized and less tired. I will surely continue on this path.

  15. What is this? Everyone should eat differently, carbs are great, fats are great, milk is awesome! Everybody comes from different cultures and grandgrandparents give them their genes which adaptet to their lifestile and enviroment.. (like Chengis Khan who defeated chinese much bigger army because their were eating lots of carbs, so they had too much food in their logistics on the other sides mongolians lived on milk and cheese because they had enough enzymes to process it thanks to their genetics and past they had more energy and less food to carry, were stronger also) What you can eat depends on your genes, asians have problem with milk a lot, on the other hand over 90% of scandinavians are good with eating milk.
