In my humble opinion, the nutritional gospel we’ve been fed is a load of crap. From the USDA food pyramid or now, my plate, to The Questionable Link Between Saturated Fat and Heart Disease, we’ve been fed a lie all of these years to line the pockets of a few (Big Food, lobbyists, etc) at the expense of the many—that would be us, people, the general public. Fortunately, more and more information is coming to light in books like The Big Fat Surprise and movies like Fed Up:

• For the past 30 years, everything we thought we knew about food and exercise is dead wrong. FED UP is the film the food industry doesn’t want you to see. From Katie Couric, Laurie David, and director Stephanie Soechtig, FED UP will change the way you eat forever.

Educate yourself!

  1. What is it we thought we knew about exercise that is “dead wrong”? (I am aware of lots of “dead wrong” on food.)

  2. That is s quote from the promotional text for the movie, Fed Up. Given the subject matter (SUGAR), I would presume they are speaking of Gary Taubes book, “Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health”. Did you watch the Fed Up Trailer? It speaks volumes.

  3. I looked at the trailer. I get it now. I thought you were saying there had been some discovery that exercise is bad for people. It looks like the idea presented is that exercise is not the “cure” for obesity. I assume that, for most people, exercise is still a good idea.
