    Never heard of it, but I just watched the trailer.
    If it's half as hard to lose lbs as it is for an ectomorph to gain them, then I'm very sympathetic to the cause.
    Looks like an inspirational flick.

    I've never heard of it, but I'll look for it now. The synopsis on IMDB sounds good. Stories like this are inspirational. I just don't understand how people ever let themselves get so out of shape and just quit caring about their health.

    How do you expect to have a happy life without good health?

    Well if you think about it, 72.9% of the country's population is overweight, obese, or extremely obese... with more people over the age of 20 (34%) being obese. :/ It's the prevalence of fast food and shit for ingredients that's killing this country.

    Ironically, it sounds like the Australian narator came to the states to lose weight. icon_confused.gif

    I saw it, tried to juice, but it was an unrealistic diet. I wasnt able to function at work and lasted only 2 days.

    the concepts cool though

    Just watched it on Netflix. Interesting film and dramatic results.

    One thing has me a little puzzled though. When I went to find out more about the filmmaker, I found he's written a couple of articles for Huffington Post and his bio there says he worked on the Sydney Futures Exchange "from the early 1980s until 1998".

    But in the film, he says he's 41 and the film was just made late last year. So he would have been born in 1969 or 1970. But he was working on the Sydney exchange in the early 80s? When he would have been 14 or 15? icon_question.gificon_confused.gif

    I'm a health care provider. As long as people do the silly shit they do in those funny home videos (they don't show the ambulance coming to take the joker away) and chose bad eating and drinking habits, guys like me will always have a job.
