Rest Day

We recently watched a movie called "Fat Head". It is somewhat of a response to the documentary "Supersize Me". If you decide to watch the whole movie, take it with a grain of salt. We're not suggesting that you go out and live on fast food (and lose weight) as the maker of this movie did. Although, he proved an interesting point in his endeavor by losing 12 pounds and 3-4% body fat by eating ONLY fast food, simply by ensuring that his total percentage of carbohydrate intake per day was much lower than what he normally ate. "Fat Head" offers some very interesting insight on why we as a society are so overweight and sick with illnesses like diabetes and heart disease. Most of the theories and studies are pointing to carbohydrates. Not fat. NOT EVEN SATURATED FAT.

Here's a clip from the movie:
