My Big Fat Mistake on Healthy Diets

Whoa! How could I forget the documentary called Fat Head? I searched for it today to watch it since it's been about a year and I forgot just about everything. I found it and watched it after I had already written yesterday's blog on calorie counting. Well, I feel sheepish. How could I forget? It's way too complicated to explain so if you have the time and you want to learn about healthy weight loss, watch this video.  I am busy adjusting all my Sparkpeople settings since it allows me to. I'm such a meat and vegetables person so this diet suits me fine. I'm HAPPY! Whoo hoo!  
I watched the documentary awhile back called Supersize Me. I didn't really agree with it and hated the whole veghan thing that was pushed. But it did worry me and I did start going on a calorie diet. Never was I more starving and had less energy than ever before. Also, the company that did Supersize me will not release records of his actual complete diet. It is obvious that he ate in between meals not shown because according to what he ate, he did not eat 5,000 a day like he said. Anyway, it's hard to explain. BUT, if you watch this new documentary, it'll explain the epidemic of diabetes that has been rising more and more. Even in young children. It explains why lowfat diets are not good and we it's more important to watch our carbs. Boy, Atkins sure was attacked for something that was scientifically correct. The government, however, pushes a diet that is actually not healthy for us. Just watch the documentary and it'll explain it so much better. It's REALLY interesting and an eye opener. This documentary is a MUST SEE for people that have health issues and are tired of struggling with their weight. It even goes into scientific specifics on how your body works and why certain diets work against you.

I have a 'friend' who is fantatical about following Fat Head type diet.
Her obsession just makes me NEVER want to watch the video!
I am happy you find it helpful though.
Each to their own.

I'm sorry, Chris, that she did that. Do you mean obsession that she talks about it nonstop and tries to convert everyone? I think you are right. There are so many diets out there and you just have to find the one that you know you'll stick with. I don't crave carbs so this diet is just right for me. Some people absolutely love carbs and this might make it hard for them. You do Weight Watchers, right? I think they are an awesome weight loss program.
