Audience Reviews for Fat Head

In response to Morgan Spurlock's faux documentary about fast food, Fat Head examines the truth about nutrition and dieting in America. Much of the film discusses the corruption in government and its unscientific assessment of obesity and what constitutes a healthy diet. But the film also examines the disinformation and inconsistences put forth in Super Size Me. However, at times too many facts and figures are thrown out, and it feel like an information dump. And this is part of a larger structural problem that the film has in creating a narrative. Still, Fat Head is a fascinating expose on how healthy living is being sold to Americans and the politics that are being played.

I found this to be an interesting rebuttal to Supersize Me. Although, like most of these documentaries, it sometimes tends to go a little overboard to get their point across. It does give a good, detailed scientific explaination about how blood sugars, carbs, cholesterol and fat work in our bodies; without becoming a borefest. It gives "food for thought" (pun intended). The biggest statement this movie makes is that neither government nor any other agency should tell people how to eat. I found it to be educationally fun.
