Fat Head is a 2009 American documentary film directed by and starring Tom Naughton. Super Size Me and the lipid hypothesis, a theory of nutrition started in the early 1950s in the United States by Ancel Keys and promoted in much of the Western world.
Naughton first saw Super Size Me, part of his research on a comedy part of my research. I’m so much, I’m not sure, but I’m not sure if I know some other moviemakers went to McDiets, and they were not funny. the cure for contempt is counter-contempt, then the cure for a funny documentary that’s full of bologna is a funny documentary that is not. ” In 2013, Naughton released a director’s cut of Fat Head on DVD. It includes some slight re-edits, a section at the end of the news in the history of the film, and Naughton detailing his family
In Fat Head, Tom Naughton’s questions and claims by Morgan Spurlock in the Super Size Me movie, in which Spurlock is a McDonald’s food for 30 days. Naughton, who examines the nutritional information in McDonald’s menu, is skeptical of Spurlock’s doctor’s statement that Spurlock was consuming 5,000 calories a day, and is unable to obtain Spurlock’s food log from Spurlock’s representatives. (Naughton’s website includes a list of topics that are important to you during your month-long experiment, including the nutritional information of your diet.) Naughton also criticizes his inference argues that no one is forced to eat fast food, as fast food and that if fast food restaurants did not exist, people would like to eat at the same food at other restaurants or at home. Naughton also questions Spurlock’s claim that his 30-day diet in addiction, in the light of the fact that he had no difficulty in curing eating fast food. Naughton addresses Spurlock’s argument that the current prevalence of obesity can be caused by home cooking or by non-corporate, family-owned restaurants, since they have been around than corporate fast food chains. Naughton says that the food people eat at the restaurant is the same unhealthy food eaten at fast food chains, and that the reason the trainer did not make Families would only eat at the same time, and not often, as some people at fast food restaurants. Naughton and his interviewees say that anti-McDonald’s sentiment is motivated by anticonsumerism, the desire of lawyers to sue rich corporations rather than family restaurants of comparatively modest means and paternalism by advocacy groups like the Center for Science in the Public Interest. Naughton challenges the notion that the United States is experiencing an obesity epidemic by pointing out that the Centers for Disease Control, which made that assertion in 2004, recanted it the following year. Naughton also questions the use of the body mass index to calculate a person who is overweight, according to the BMI, he himself is considered obese. However, according to the BMI chart for men, at 5’11, 206.5 lbs, Naughton is simply considered overweight; which challenges one of the main premises behind the film that is considered obese but does not appear to be. Naughton’s physician tells him that he is obese based on his body fat percentage, which to this confusion. The documentary also focuses on the science and policy behind the US government’s recommendations, largely based on the lipid hypothesis, which is one of the main proposals. The film claims that the lipid hypothesis has no basis in scientific fact. According to the film, among other sources such as Mark Sisson, there has been a single study that has a high incidence of high rates of heart disease. During the film, several physicians and dietitians are interviewed and diagnosed by the authors of the report. high blood sugar. During the movie, Naughton goes on an all-fast-food diet, mainly eating food from McDonald’s. For his daily dietary intake, he aims to keep his calories to around 2,000 and his carbohydrates to around 100 grams per day, but he does not restrict fat at all. He ends up eating about 100 grams of fat per day, of which about 50 grams are saturated. He also decides to walk six nights a week, instead of his usual three. After a month eating that way, he loses 12 pounds and his total cholesterol goes down. However, his HDL does go down; this is often thought to be undesirable, as high HDL levels are desirable. Naughton details and additional research on lipid hypothesis. In this second experiment, he cuts out his eggs, eggs and bacon fried in butter, steaks, Polish sausage, fruit in heavy cream, and green vegetables in butter. He uses coconut oil to fry onions for his cheeseburgers and eats fried shredded cheese as a snack. As a result, Naughton says that his energy level and deleterious effects have not yet reached their limits. At the end of the month, his overall cholesterol has dropped from 222 to 209,
The Houston Chronicle said Fat Head “is just in the way of life. About.com Laura Dolson found it both entertaining and educational, but had some gripes with the sarcastic tone, “which at times crossed over being mean-spirited.” Chris Neilson of DVD Talk criticized how Naughton selectively presents information that could be considered critical, such as LDL levels at baseline and experiment terminus. William Lee of DVD Verdict similarly considered that, despite the middle part where experts are interviewed and such cholesterol are explained, the intention of debunking dietary myths “is lost in the ill-conceived, confrontational presentation of Fat Head”.
