      Yeah I saw it last year and eventually bought the DvD to show to friends and family. It is a real eye opener for some people. It's good stuff.

      People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

          yeah, my boyfriends dad has high cholesterol, it makes me cringe to watch him snack on pretzels because his dr told him that is the kind of stuff he should be eating and not fats. i should put the dvd on the netflix queue.

            You can skip to minute 52 if you want the good stuff. The first 52 minutes he just rants about the guy in super size me But agreed, it is a GREAT documentary.

            My favorite is actually Killer at Large, followed up by King Corn. The two in unison make a big impression.

              I haven't seen either of those, do you know if they're on hulu or Netflix by chance? It might be time to reactivate my subscription.

                Fat Head is the reason I found Primal Blueprint. He recommends the book on his website. I ran out and got it. Two weeks in and loving it. I highly recommend watching this. He also has a one hour lecture which is more scientific and less entertaining if you want more.

                  Is there a non-Hulu site for this video? I'm in Egypt and cannot access the Hulu version from here, only trailers on youtube.com

                    AFAIK you can only see it on Hulu. It really sucks, I had to watch it from a Winders machine (yuck.) However the lecture is better than the movie in my opinion.

                      They are both available on Netflix for instant viewing.

                          This is good to know. I watched the first 44 minutes and was like okay, there must get better, but I ran out of time and interest. I'll go back and start at 52 min. Thanks.

                            It's also on Netflix now, but not sure that helps texas.grok out much.

                              This documentary is what led me to look into the paleo lifestyle more closely and ultimately led me here. I am now in my second week transitioning from vegetarian to primal.
