Documentary "Fed Up"
« on: August 05, 2019, 10:35:39 AM »
"An examination of America's obesity epidemic and the food industry's role in aggravating it."  :grrr:

   Lots of folks I dis-approve of in this documentary and the fact that I got thru it regardless shows it did have important info.
e.g.
Study with rats shows Sugar 8 x's more addictive than cocaine.
Look on any package and tell me what the RDA of sugar is.

   Knew some of this already, but sources cited and their actions are scary.  :shake:  :shake:  :shake:
The time line regarding the beginning of our current health crisis (obesity, heart disease, diabetes) is more than suspicious and if true, the future will be worse.

   All we got to do is clean up, stay healthy and outlive the rest.

Available on Amazon.

I thought it was about the Federal Reserve, but I guess that problem will solve itself soon enough and the obesity crisis with it

Does high sugar and fatty diet, and no exercise lead to one being fat and unhealthy?  Yup.

But no one forced anyone to eat that way.  And with the education there is today, this life style is avoidable.  People in the US are just lazy and enabled.  Let's give a fat person a wheel chair because they're to fat to walk. 

I remember watching that show My 600lbs life.  A guys wife couldn't even get out of bed and he's feeding her fried chicken and a can of green beans.  She ate it all.  Bitch cant even get out of bed.  Giver her ass a salad with no dressing.  Again enabling.  One night they went out to a Denny's.  She had to be wheeled in with her wheel chair.  She ordered a bunch of food.  And as they were leaving, a little girl pointed at her and started to laugh.  The woman broke down in tears.  Well it's your own fault.  I have no sympathy to those who choose to live this life style.

I eat like shit.  High protein, high carb, low fat (I trim my meats).  But I do enjoy bacon and Portuguese sausage.  What enables me to eat all this rubbish, I work out 5x a week.  If I didn't burn it off, I would adjust my diet and reduce my intake.  Right now I'm on a 7K calorie diet.  4500 comes from carbs alone.  Which is why when I go on vacation, I always lose about 6-10lbs by the time I return.  When I was competing, I lost 56lbs in 12 weeks. 

It's all about motivation.  Sorry for the rant, I get triggered when people say they can't lose weight or make excuses to why they got diabetes, fat, etc...My uncle was diabetic.  For years his doc was telling him to get exercise.  He kept saying yeah, yeah yeah.  Till 1 day he decided he wanted to do a marathon.  At 1st, he couldn't even run to the end of the block.  He had to stop and walk.  But 1 day, he made it to the end of the block.  Then the next block and so on.  Fast forward to today.  He has done 4 marathons and doesn't need insulin for years now.  He can even eat dessert if he wants to.  He kicks himself in the ass for not listening to his doc all theses years.

My other good friend suffers from gout.  So bad that he can't go to work for 1-2 weeks at a time.  During high school, same thing, his doc said get exercise.  I offered to train him.  But he was to embarrassed because I would out lift him.  I told him I'll just be there for support and not even lift.  He always had an excuse.  Fast forward 10 years.  Doc told him if he keeps up his lifestyle, he's gonna take that foot from him.  This was his wake up call.  He started to go to the gym and not eat jack in the box at 1am anymore.  His gout flare ups have gone down and he needs to buy new clothes that fit his weight loss.

reminds me of all those big people at Walmart in those battery operated carts. They can walk but they stroll around in carts shopping. Walmart enables obesity. Nom Nom. Also on the topic of handicap parking stall or the use of permits by those who can walk but are just fat. They park their lifted 4x4s and hang up the blue placard. Gee if only their vehicle could perform as they physically can they would be in a Pinto.

When I was in Taiwan, I didn't see any fat people in wheel chairs.  The only people I saw in wheel chairs had fucked up legs.  I use that language because they're legs were super deformed (fucked up).  Not missing either.  Even old people walked around.  My wifes grandma used a cane and walked very slow.  It was cute to see mrs.CMO walk with her arm in arm.  Anyone who knows Mrs.CMO knows she more masuclant than femenint.  But I still show her who's boss. =P

Taiwan is not wheel chair friendly.  Stairs or ledges everywhere.  Something about the evil spirits and a ledge is a barrier from them entering.

I must have been walking behind your wife and her grandma.

I seem to always be behind someone who walks like that:  --v--e--r--y    s--l--l--l--l--o--o--o--o--w--w--w--w--w

I came across this on Netflix and didn't watch it.  Same story, fat people need excuses why they're fat.

Also some 2a type documentaries also on Netflix.  But I read the reviews 1st and most say it's anti 2a propaganda.  Might look into "Right to Bear".  Reviews were pretty fair.

NOT the same "fat people need excuses why they're fat."story.
Started 30 yrs ago and the affects it's had on our health.
How often did you hear about Cancer, Diabetes, GI issues etc... 35 yrs ago ?
Find out where the "Fat" in all of the now "Low Fat" products went, why there is no RDA for suger (did you find it on any package yet ?) and the truth about low calorie, low fat, sugar free and how and why it's even exists (see Obama)
Watch it then LMK what you think.

I find it troubling that healthy, not processed (fresh) food products are much more expensive than the processed mass-marketed food items.  Whether it's in the supermarket or a fast food or sit-down restaurant, trying to make healthier choices requires a larger financial investment.

Why does organic veggies cost more, cause get 1 Mexican or Filipino guy fanning each lettuce so the flys don't get to it.  Vs. pesticide, no need hire one guy to fan it.

11 mins in and im fed up.

People enabling and giving excuses to why people or kids are fat.

Simple excess calories equal weight gain. People think just because they go to the gym, they can eat what ever they want. I see it all the time with fatties. And they dont get a quality work out either. Like going to the range and just shooting to shoot and keep missing.

I see what these fatties have in their kitchens and feeding their kids. 1 lady has 5 diff types of cereal, low fat triscuit, peanut butter and more. How about get rid of all the snacks even low calorie ones and cereal. For breakfast eat a few eggs and maybe 1/3 of an apple. Thats it.

They think cause it says low fat or low sugar its ok. Calories are still calories.

Im on a 7500 calorie diet and bust my ass in the gym. I hate working out. I rather be doing other stuff instead. But i do it so i can pound the food and not worry.

Rant for now over. Gotta watch thr remaining hour and 35 mins.

Finished it and its like the 2a. People blaming food companies instead of themselves. Like blaming the gun and gun companies instead of the shooter.


Yes school may have junk food for lunch, so u gotta bring home lunch. And a pb and j sandwitch on brown bread isnt healthy.

I lost 56lbs for my comp. I basically ate shoyu chicken every meal and cucumbers. Instead of sugar, i used 100% stevia which is a leaf. And i wasnt fat so losing that much weight in 12 weeks was harder because i had less fat to lose compared to someone whos 300lbs and fat. I also had protein shakes and artificial sweeteners up the wazoo. So to blame processed food is also an excuse.

My life sucked. I was always hungry. But i did what i had to to lose the weight. Sacrifised going out with friends or even to the movies cause i had to eat every 3-4 hours. Thats what these fat kids have to do. Or they will die/be sick.

Luckily every other saturday i was allowed a 8 hour refeed window of as much carbs as i wanted. But no fats. So in 8 hrs i consumed the following

10 cans aloha iced tea
4 cups rice (uncooked worth)
1 packet of somen noodles

So in the end, i stand by my previous post. Caloric deficite = weight loss. Fat people just have no motivation and want the easly way out (magic pill).

Same goes with guys who wanna pack on muscle, but cant gain wright. I tell them they need to eat more. They always say "i do eat a lot". I said eat more, not eat alot. So i ask what they ate today. Then i tell them what i ate and every time their response is "wow, thats alot". I tell them, thats why i said eat more. Cause whats a lot to you, isnt whats alot to someone whos bulking.
