Hey pals, this documentary just got added to iTunes.

It's from the peeps that made "Food Matters". I'm renting it right now and so far it's a lot of "Americans are obese because they eat too much fat and sugar." But I think (hope) that they are working towards a bigger point.

I still haven't seen Food Matters...does that make me a bad vegan?

I've watched it. Just a heads up, they don't advocate a vegan diet and I'm pretty sure they recommended yogurt and fish at some point. Also, they hate a lot on carbs and I know they are talking mainly about refined carbs but sometimes they don't make that super clear. Also, I'm of the opinion that bread isn't evil. They are not.

Yeah, I definitely caught the fish recommendations and the "buy local milk" suggestions. I have not seen Food Matters yet either. "Hungry for Change" may inspire some people to think differently about what they eat, but it was all obvious information to me. And I'm also a huge fan of bread, and an overweight vegan. I'm not the target audience, I think. :)

Just watched this today. Although its definitely not vegan-centric, I enjoyed it a lot, especially the end third.

It's streaming for free on their web site right now, so I watched it last night. I kind of mentally checked out when the "experts" all started comparing white sugar to cocaine. Also, there's lots of nonsense about cleanses and how juicing will cure cancer. I thought it was a big waste of time.
