Just watched it. In fact I did lose quite a bit of weight 10 years ago eating at McD's 6 nights a week and walking 90 minutes most days. The weight started to creep back up when I moved to a CW grain centric "healthy" diet.
I absolutely do not want politics to infest this forum but I am becoming increasingly more pissed off the more research I do. I work with an older bunch of people and while obesity may not be an obvious problem, the symptoms related to insulin resistance and inflammation are ubiquitous. As stated in the movie it is more than endorsement by gov't of an unhealthy diet it is enforcement through tax and regulation. I would have loved to see McGovern on the hot seat.
I just watched it. I thought it could have used more production value, and could have focused less on SuperSize Me, but it was still brilliant. As a visual learner this was perfect for explaining how and why CW doesn't work. It was also useful in teaching me exactly how unaccredited (and even fraudulent) the Lipid hypothesis is. Something I did not know before.
