Glad to see that the guy finally found a distributor. I had seen the youtube clips a looooooooong time ago and the lack of distribution was his only snag. Should be entertaining.

The video clips were entertaining and may help since I fear so few people will actually read GCBC. I ordered it, should be here 2/23.

If you guys are interested in Fat Head, read the book Good Calories Bad Calories by Gary Taube. He points out TONS of studies that have mislead people for decades. The Key's study being one of them (like in the Fat Head link).

WOW thank God! Finally an entertaining advocate of a high fat diet.

I especially liked the last 2 clips on the main page.

Just pre-ordered it, can't wait to watch it.

Oh, I've read GCBC and just posted a week or two ago about it. It is fantastic. But I don't think many people will read it given its density.

But, a simple and funny documentary...people will easily watch that.

Looks very entertaining and some good, critical journalism. I'm not sure about the advocate of high fat, though. He seems to be drinking a lot of sugar and eating a lot of carbs.

FWIW, his entire food log is on the site. It's fairly zonish (junk zonish admittedly).

Well maybe not so much as an advocate of a high fat diet, but more debunking the "saturated fat is bad" myth. The couple of clips I saw talked a bunch about that which was really promising.
