Fat Head Documentary

I’m sure most of us are familiar with the movie SuperSize Me by Morgan Spurlock and his argument that eating McDonald’s every day makes you fat and unhealthy.

Well here’s the documentary counterargument. A documentary called Fat Head (that’s a link to the full movie on Hulu, running approximately 1 hour 45 min) starring Tom Naughton who also decides to eat nothing but fast food AND lose weight.If you enjoyed SuperSize Me (do people enjoy that movie or simply find it difficult to look away?) then you will likely find Fat Head enjoyable as well.

Not sure who is more persuasive, but I think this pairing definitely speaks to Gilman’s point about the shifting narratives surrounding obesity and health; as well as highlighting the uncomfortable fact that we really don’t know all that much about how the body works or how it processes nutrition.
