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 former health writer Tom Naughton replies to the Super Size Me crowd by losing weight on a fat-laden fast-food diet including plenty of double quarter-pounders and fried chicken while demonstrating that nearly everything we've been told about obesity and healthy eating is wrong. Fat Head features humorous animations as well as informative interviews with doctors, nutritionists, and political scientists.

People the government classifies as overweight have longer lifespans than people classified as normal weight. Having low cholesterol is unhealthy and is linked to cancer, stroke and suicide. Lowfat diets can lead to depression and type II diabetes. The food police, who are now suing restaurants for frying food in hydrogenated oils, harassed the restaurants into switching to those oils 20 years ago. Saturated fat doesn't cause heart disease the research was manipulated from the very beginning but sugars, starches and processed vegetable oils do. --Producer
