Fat Sick and Nearly Dead


Hey folks if you have five minutes to watch this extended trailer of Fat Sick and Nearly Dead I would appreciate your feedback in comments. If you have time to see the entire film it is available through Netflix streaming. Whichever you watch, I would love your feedback but please tell me if you watched the whole movie or just the trailer.

I am seriously considering trying this for ten days and depending on how I feel I might extend it for the full sixty days. If I do decided to do this I plan to do a daily video log of my progress. I have already consulted with one of my physicians and she did not like the idea but her reasons were strictly because of the sustainability of the plan. Tomorrow I will see my primary and get his opinion.

I watched only the trailer. I lost weight and keep it off with the American Diabetes Association diet and doing easy yoga or Wii on most days. It works because the most important rule is 'portion' so there isn't a drastic change in menu items. Good luck with whatever you decide to tackle!

Kristen, it sounds like you've decided to do this. I personally don't like extreme diets, which don't fundamentally change our way of eating. This one seems to focus on healthy foods, which is great. I just couldn't stick to juice for 60 days. I may be yearning for solids so much I may wind up overeating.

Still, I respect your decision and if there's anything I can do to help through these cyber waves, let me know. (Prayer works.)

Oh, I just watchd the trailer.

Kristen - I watched the trailer. Personally I m not a fan of such things, but you have to know what is right for you. Last year I got a health scare. High blood pressure and cholesterol, plus I was huge. I threw out every bit of processed food in the house and made a choice to read all labels and cook from scratch, eliminating all the crap. I lost 30 kilos over some months, my blood pressure and cholesterol went down, and I found a joy in cooking and eating the right stuff again. I didn't really do it to lose weight, but for the other reasons, however the weight just fell off.

This is not meant to be lived on just merely a reboot. It is really the second phase in a complete overhaul of what I choose to eat. The point it no more processed foods and a 70% plant based diet. Thst is my goal.
