Thank you so much for sharing this!

I just watched the video. It is very well done and holds one's attention while delivering the facts.

I am texting the info to my Dallas DB. Last time he visited he saw how I eat & asked if I could provide any science based info to support the health benefits of bacon. lol... I doubt he thought it possible. His wife does not "allow" him to eat bacon at home...

It was just less than an hour long, and I was worth watching, if for no other reason than to hear his final results and comments.
I too will forward the link to a few people. Thanks for posting this information.

I thought it was great.
I recently watched a few documentaries on Netflix about becoming a Vegan and how you should avoid animal products and fats. I shook my head as they told this family they had to eat a huge bowl of cereal with fruit for breakfast in order to stay healthy. At least they had the brains to tell them to stay away from sugar!

Watched this today & LOVED it! Going to make my hubby see it tonight. He is one of those lucky people that can eat anything and not gain weight, but comes from a family with everyone having diabetes and heart disease. So I feel he could benefit.

Well done documentary. Thanks for posting.
The title didn't grab me, so I almost didn't watch it. Cereal Killers... you'd have thought it would be much bloodier

I very much enjoyed this film. Thank you so much for posting the info!

So interesting the man was thin and fit to start with. Kind of a great example of how differently disease manifests itself in different individuals. Aside from his family history, one could have said that he tolerates carbs just fine. Surprise!!!

It is very reasonable to say that those of us who get fat are getting a bit of a 'heads up'.

It was good.

Three changes that could have made it better:

*Mention some comparison studies on low-fat vs. low-carb.

*Not waste time on the grass-fed topic. It is a fine topic but I think it's just going to confuse people who are already struggling with whether meat is bad. Not all people have access or income to choose grass-fed meat. They didn't directly say you must have grass-fed meat on the diet but you could easily interpret it that way just from them including this topic.

* Use less text (which was annoyingly small) and narrate instead.

But in general I liked it. I loved the advisement in the end. Most say "consult your physician" but they said "a open minded physician"

I watched it, but only made it about halfway through. I just felt like I had seen it all before- man has a bunch of tests, does something the establishment thinks is crazy, has more tests to prove its not. It was interesting twist that he was already young, thin and appeared to be healthy.

It isn't his fault though that I have Netflix, Amazon Prime and a library card and use them all to watch/read about this stuff extensively. Low carb, juicing, fasting- all and more have the same video.

My favorite part of any of these types of videos is in Fathead. He goes to his doctor for the end-of-experiment tests and of course all of his values are better. His doctor says, "I don't like what you're proving here." I think that just about sums up the reason anyone is still be given the old, failed advice and our "experts" continue to recommend a diet that is slowly killing our nation (and the nations that follow us). That is the real shocker in this saga- the refusal of mainstream medicine and health groups to see what has been in front of their noses for decades. Scientists should not conform to groupthink.

Another standout in this film was that they were able to demonstrate that donal's resting metabolic rate actually went up in ketosis. Very interesting!

I enjoyed this too - big thanks for the post. I was really intrigued to find that there is a test for hidden inflammation. Why is this test so unheard of? (or maybe it's not, just me?) Given that we know inflammation is at the root of so much disease, shouldn't it be a more standard thing? After googling, my guess is that he was referring to testing for CRP (C-Reactive Protein) as the name of the test wasn't mentioned in the film. Really curious if this is something anyone can request from their doctor...
