i wish i could curse in this review, but i can't. I was almost 200 pounds when i saw this film. last month i weighed in at 154 on my new insurance weigh in. That's ridiculous. i would recommend staying away from processed meat as eating a bunch of this, kale and peanut butter had literally short circuited my thyroid. now, i can't eat any of these but i digress.
Lets speak of the movie. it's informative in a mean manner where some of the jokes are superfluous and odd. It tracks the film maker in his journey to health by disproving the accepted mantras of modern medicine. it is a powerful statement to say this book will change your life or help you lose weight, because it won't. i also worked out a lot and lead an active lifestyle. was i misleading to open with this? no, you should have been asking what else i was up to.
Why did i bring this up? because the topic is also discussed in the film. he says to use your head and think. don't listen to the diet books and ripoff artists who promise a one stop solution because in all cases you need to do multiple things. Eat right, as he explains in the movie and work out/exercise.
it's a fun movie to watch. i'm watching it as i write this review (watching for the 6th time i'd say). you need carbs though. Buy it.
