FAT: A Documentary 2 (1080p) FULL MOVIE – Health & Wellness, Diet, Food

FAT: A Documentary 2 is the sequel to the international sensation that delves deeper into the lies and myths surrounding the age-old question: “What should I be eating?” “Common knowledge” regarding healthy eating has grown more and more confusing seemingly by the day. Vinnie Tortorich and a host of health experts talk about the conflicts between plant eaters and meat eaters and how hidden machinations in the food industry are the reasons why we believe what we do about food and optimal health.

    Great job discrediting the vegan and low fat diets, but poor job giving evidence for the keto diet. I truly don’t understand why demonizing large food groups like fat, carbs or animal products, is the only way experts are talking about nutrition. How about cut out all of the horrible food-like products, like soda, processed foods, and seed oils, and eat organic fruits, vegetables, grains, and grass fed meat and dairy. Why is it always, completely cut out meat or completely cut out carbs. I’m getting so sick of the extremist diets backed by piss poor research.

    For all those who believe that petroleum comes from fossilized plants, wouldn’t that also make motor oil a plant oil?

    When piglets are suckling their mother, the sow is huming to them.
    This is one of the many reasons, related to recognising the feelings of animals, why I do not eat animals. Particularly with today’s standards and the rise of industrial farms coupled with the state of slaughterhouses. I wish I could upload pictures.
    Though I say yes to keto including quality eggs and fasting.

    Uau! That was a big, fat waste of my time. WFPB diet has been scientifically proven to be the kindest and best diet all around.

  6. Eric Jones on May 29, 2023 at 1:52 pm

    Health from diet depends on total caloric consumption, nutrients (micro), macro nutrients, activity levels, etc. Eat whole foods. Focus on high nutrient to caloric ratios.

  7. Seth Taylor on May 29, 2023 at 1:53 pm

    Buy local, support local cattle, chicken etc

    The more I understand keto diet and its benefits the more I wonder how come even today the what-so-called scientists, doctors, nutritionists can be so mean or ignorant to be against keto diet and even try their best to prevent the people or patient who need keto diet from practicing it. Why?

    Missing the talk about how bad animal farming is and all the crap we are feeding animals. I try and buy the best quality organic home fed animals and vegetables – still think this is the best option. Avoid processed foods, buy organic home grown and cook yourself.

    Meat eating is equal to cannibalism.

  14. Cathy Sparks on May 29, 2023 at 2:01 pm

    Okay…it’s an excellent production on fats—but Vinnie obviously knows very little about true Christianity as he lumps it in with “religion” (which truly, this production really has nothing to do with). 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

  15. maned wolf on May 29, 2023 at 2:01 pm

    I was raised eating vegan for religious reasons and for so long I mistook my introverted personality for lethargy from a high-carb and high-sugar diet. Not until two years ago did I experiment with fasting and start to see the improvement in my mental clarity, I decided to push that limit. I fasted regularly and ate both a high-carb diet and a high-fat diet in my eating window at times. I switched up my fat sources by replacing vegetable oils with butter and extra-virgin olive oil. Soon enough, I noticed I nearly passed out a few times during fasting hours when I was carb-dependent despite my sedentary lifestyle. In contrast, I see a huge difference in vitality and liveliness when I’m on a low-carb diet, which is what I always wanted to achieve. Another benefit is that it also helped me step up my fasting game: I can fast longer and longer and have far much more energy to exercise and enjoy lifting weights. When I went back home for the first time after two years away, my mom couldn’t recognize me at all. For sure I’ll never look back on a high-carb diet in the name of veganism but I really hope to lead as an example for my mom to make changes in our family diet since it’s a very fine line between eating for better health and throwing away a big part of your religious practice. So far my mom is skinny fat and blows up most of her inflammatory markers, recently discovered a tumor on one of her breasts. My dad got NAFLD when he turned 43 in spite of his work being labor-intensive and his daily bodyweight exercise. Hope I’ll have enough time and patience to influence my parents before it’s too late.

    I DON’T EAT ANYTHING WITH A FACE OR A MOTHER! Animals do find this to be quite agreeable.  Conventional wisdom is that “vegan” and “athlete” simply don’t get along — let’s call it irreconcilable differences for now. I’m here to say that is complete nonsense and just plain silly if given much thought.  Richard, where do you get your protein?”  LOL… I hear this often.  Question for you…  Ever hear of people that are sick from protein deficiencies?       
    The belief systems around food are deeply entrenched in our society— similar to religion and politics — emotions can run high. Conversations become debate, and debate leads to mudslinging … which can be  destructive.For those who question this notion, I challenge you to eat your meat meal, and have your blood panel checked 2 hours later. Try this again 24 hours later after a 100% vegan "whole food" day.  You’re going to be surprised, and possibly even angry about the results?  
    We live in a society in which we have been willfully mis-led to believe that meat and dairy products are the sole source of dietary protein worthy of any merit. Without copious amounts of animal protein, it’s impossible for you to be healthy, let alone perform at a high level. The message is everywhere, a dairy lobby ad campaigns pushing chocolate milk as the ultimate athletic recovery beverage? (In a diabolical way this is genius). Protein, protein, protein — often reinforced with the adage that more of it is somehow better.  Milk or egg is in virtually everything you buy today.  Therefore, whole foods are the clear answer in every possible way when it comes to human fuel!!!

    Whether you are a professional athlete or a couch potato, this hardened notion is so deeply ingrained into our collective belief system that to challenge its propriety is nothing short of heresy and craziness. But through direct experience, I have come to understand that this pervasive notion is at best misleading, if not altogether false … It is fueled by a well-funded campaign of disinformation perpetuated by powerful and well-funded Big Food, Big Ag, Big Pharma, and industrial animal agriculture interests that have spent trillions of marketing dollars to convince society that we absolutely need these proteins in order to continue breathing air is completely outrageous?  Big Business will protect their wealth long before they protect your health!!  I GUARANTEE YOU THIS.  

    The animal protein push is not only based on lies, it’s killing us, luring us to feast on factory-farmed, hormone- and pesticide-laden, low-fiber foods extremely high in saturated fat. Eating this way is a major contributing factor to our epidemic of heart disease (the world’s and USA’s  #1 killer), diabetes, cancers, digestive problems, heartburn, high cholesterol, blood pressure problems, and fatty liver disease.  Clearly lifestyle-induced infirmities that have rendered our prosperous nation (The USA) one of the sickest societies on Earth.  And big pharma keeps handing out their pills and prolonging the sickness  Big Pharma and Big Ag have been dictating American diets our entire lives!  No money to be made in healthy people, who are not addicted.  These bohemiaths will stop at no cost to feed the addictions and spend billions to tempt your palate like an addict.  
    Medical science establishes beyond reproach that both casein and whey contribute materially to degenerative disease. Proteins found in milk, cheese, butter, and meat "casein" has been linked to the onset of a variety of diseases, including cancer. And whey is nothing more than a highly processed, low-grade discard of cheese production — A Genius move by the dairy industry that created a Ga-zillion dollar business out of stuff we previously had discarded into the garbage.
    On a personal anecdotal level, adopting a whole food plant-based lifestyle improved my health and revitalized my middle-aged self to re engage fitness in a new way. As hard as it may be for some to believe, adopting this new way of eating and living is invigorating to say the least.  The entire digestive system feels unbelievable, revitalized, and new again!  I am finally absorbing all of the nutrients and vitamins previously rejected by my fat filled arteries, veins, liver, tissue, and blood.  People 20 years my junior could not keep pace at Machu Picchu in 2021. I am not alone in this belief:  Humans have been living with little or no meat and dairy for thousands of years Strongman Patrik Baboumian world record most weight carried.  Tom Brady- Vegan Oakland Raiders defensive tackle David Carter and many NFL athletes today, .Arnold Schwartnegger- Vegan2-time World Champion Freerunner Timothy Shieff. Frank Medrano doing things with his body you didn’t think possible.MMA/UFC fighters Mac Danzig, Jake Shields, and James Wilks.
    Multisport athletes like Brendan Brazier, Rip Esselstyn, and Ben Bostrom —  World-renowned motorcycle, mountain bike, and road bike athletes.
    Professional triathlete & Ultraman World Champion Hillary Biscay who raced her 66th Ironman.
    Check out ultramarathoners extraordinaire like Scott Jurek, his fruitarian compadre Michael Arnstein, or Jason Lester, who completed 5 Ironman distance triathlons on 5 Hawaiian islands in under a week.The point is this: each of these athletes, and countless others, will all tell you the same thing: rather than steak, milk, eggs, and whey supplements, they opt instead to eat and source their protein needs from healthy plant-based sources like black, kidney, pinto, and other beans, almonds, lentils, potatoes, hemp seeds, spirulina, quinoa and countless vegetables.  Even eating less-concentrated sources of protein like potatoes, sweet potatoes, and bananas will get you exactly where you need to be.  Yes they all have protein!If you ate nothing but a variety of fresh fruit, you still would never suffer a deficiency of protein (or even any particular amino acid). Short of starving yourself, it’s basically impossible. In reality, eating plant-based has significantly enhanced my ability to expedite physiological recovery between workouts — this is the holy grail of performance enhancement for athletes. In fact, I can honestly say that at 55 I am as fit as I have ever been in my entire life with unbelievably outstanding blood work now. Despite what you may have been told, more animal protein is not good for your health. Satisfy your requirements and leave it at that.  Most people — the overwhelming majority of whom are predominantly sedentary — generally consume upwards of three times plus the amount of daily protein needed to thrive.The protein craze isn’t just unwarranted or overhyped!  It is mularkey pie, it’s harmful to your health, your children’s, and the future generations of the planet. Extinction of species is happening faster now than ever and the next generation will not live as long as their parents have.. Natural Rain Forests are disappearing to grow protein for animals and disasters are becoming much worse every year.  There is evidence that animal protein intake contributes to the onset of a variety of diseases and problems, such as osteoporosis, cancer, dementia, impaired kidney function, diabetes, high LDL, Low HDL, Heart disease, Acne, depression, asthma, obesity, stroke, gluten sensitivity, inflammation, depression, and much more.  There is evidence that Animal consumption is ruining earth and potentially causing the 6th great extinction (HUMANS?).  Plant Based, whole foods are the only plan to reverse type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and improve your blood markers without medications.   These current food choices are no longer sustainable!  There are major benefits to plant-based nutrition, all supported by science. Plant-based diet benefits include:Easy weight management: People who eat a plant-based diet tend to be leaner than those who don’t, and the life plan makes it easy to lose weight and keep it off—without counting calories. Disease prevention: Whole-food, plant-based eating can prevent, halt, and in some cases reverse chronic diseases. The scientific evidence is especially overwhelming when it comes to heart disease and diabetes,  but research has also linked plant-based diets to lower rates of arthritis, improved liver function, and healthier kidneys. A lighter environmental footprint: A plant-based diet places much less stress on the environment.   Still not convinced? Here is some food for thought:  The strongest animals in the world — the elephant, rhino, hippo and gorilla — are plant-powered herbivores. Nobody asks them where they get all their protein. Humans are the first and only species to drink another species’ milk ever.  Today nearly 90% of all antibiotics are placed into Animals to keep humans from becoming sick.  This idea is that we somehow have claws, fangs, and acidic stomachs with digestive tracts, like carnivores are nuts.  Human digestive tracts are like a herbivore’s digestive tract.  This is proven with science!

    Processed meats, specifically those enhanced with nitrites, have a cancer link. This research has been around since the 70s. Follow the money. The studies that show it doesn’t are funded by companies that benefit from that.

    31:00 All religions don’t say the same thing. While they all teach similar ideas regarding morality, they teach contradictory concepts regarding eternity, salvation and God. I like what Vinnie is trying to do in this documentary, but he is wrong with his analogy here.

  25. Macca on May 29, 2023 at 2:16 pm

    I’ve got a question, if I start Keto, will I lose muscle mass as well as fat because I’m not overweight or anything like that and I don’t want to lose my progress I’ve made in the gym.

  26. Missy Belle on May 29, 2023 at 2:17 pm

    The commonality of whole food based low carb and vegetarian/vegan diets is high vegetable consumption. Those focused on manufactured junk will be unhealthy regardless of the diet. We need to get back to eating real food that grows naturally in the environment and stop arguing over the diet type. Manufactured vegan meat makes me want to vomit; it’s absolutely disgusting and will only harm human health.

  27. CHRISTIAN BOCCA on May 29, 2023 at 2:18 pm

    Gary Taubes: Twisting Words?
    Gary Taubes formed the Nutrition Science Initiative to sponsor research to validate the carbohydrate–insulin model. He’s the journalist who wrote the controversial 2002 New York Times Magazine piece, “What if It’s All Been a Big Fat Lie?”, which attempted to turn nutrition dogma on its head by arguing in favor of the Atkins diet, with its bunless bacon cheeseburgers based on the carbohydrate–insulin model. (Much of Nina Teicholz’s book The Big Fat Surprise is simply recycled from Taubes’s earlier work).

    In response, some of the very researchers Taubes cited to support his thesis accused him of twisting their words. “The article was incredibly misleading,” one said. “I was horrified.” “He took this weird little idea and blew it up, and people believed him,” said another. “What a disaster.” It doesn’t matter what people say, though. All that matters is the science.

    Taubes attracted $40 million in committed funding for his Nutrition Science Initiative to prove to the world you could lose more body fat on a ketogenic diet. They contracted noted NIH researcher Kevin Hall to perform the study. Seventeen overweight men were effectively locked in what’s called a metabolic ward for two months to allow researchers total control over their diets. For the first month, they were placed on a typical high-carbohydrate diet (50 percent carbohydrate; 35 percent fat; 15 percent protein), and then they were switched to a low-carb ketogenic diet (only 5 percent of calories from carbohydrate; 80 percent fat) for the second month. Both diets had the same number of daily calories. So, if a calorie is a calorie when it comes to weight loss, then there should be no difference in body fat loss on the regular diet versus the ketogenic diet. If Taubes was right, though, if fat calories were somehow less fattening, then body fat loss would become accelerated. What happened instead, in the very study funded by the Nutrition Science Initiative, was that “[b]ody fat loss slowed” upon switching to the ketogenic diet.

    Part two of pure awesome Vinnie 🙂 Many thanks to all involved in making these 🙂

  30. Mark Wilson on May 29, 2023 at 2:25 pm

    Lol, one takeaway is "Big Food" is now gonna coopt the IOM like they did the whores at Harvard and Tufts. Maybe start with some donations, then larger ones and voila the IOM like the AHA, ADA, etc. are hooked. Put on a few conferences sponsored by General Mills, etc.,, some honoraria, a few "researchers" go to work for the IOM and the IOM will retract whatever they published. In any case great job Vinnie!

  31. Boyd Gilbreath on May 29, 2023 at 2:25 pm

    Seed oils!!! Just in the last few minutes it became seed oils! Bull.

  33. youtuber42 on May 29, 2023 at 2:26 pm

    coconut oil might be fine, but palm oil may not be. Palm oil has specific fatty acids in the wrong places on the triglycerides and is confusing out digestion system. Avoid it.

  34. CAROLYN ADAMS on May 29, 2023 at 2:27 pm

    A Continuous Glucose monitor or glucometer should be available to everyone. Anything that spikes blood sugar, raises insulin levels. Insulin is the fat storage hormone.

  35. Dustin Adair on May 29, 2023 at 2:31 pm

    If we are free but we all know the government almost NEVER has our interest in mind how have we not have a revolution? It’s because we aren’t free. We are fat slaves who are comfortable but depressed stuck in smart prisons. It’s either that or the government always has our best interest in mind which you’d have to be pretty stupid to believe that.

  36. Norman Appleton on May 29, 2023 at 2:32 pm

    The "health departments in Queensland" are now claiming that Type 2 diabetics should avoid coconut oil "because it contains sugar"! Where oh where did they get this idea??

  37. Cheng on May 29, 2023 at 2:33 pm

    that’s why I EAT
    everything in moderation…….
    5 food groups: fruits. carbs.
    protein. dairy. veggies..

    & a snack.. small slice of
    bluberry cheese cake…. so,
    i don’t DEPRIVE MYSELF……
    or handfuls of WALNUTS😊!!

    Turn the old FDA food pyramid upside down. Water healthy fats and non seed oils leafy greens and legumes red orange and purple fruits and veggies and limit non bleached flour carbs 😊😊

  42. The cathedral of artificial light. on May 29, 2023 at 2:39 pm

    I think a balanced diet is best, afterall when we lived in caves, we lived of meat mainly, and we died at the age of 25 or 30, it wasnt until wheat was harvested that we got our 3 score and 10, it just seems like we are pushing the boat out, when we just eat meat, noone knows the true consequence of not having a balanced diet, not only that just eating meat, is a bloody boring and cruel way of life, and dont treat yourself as an experiment, which may fail you…

  43. emese-tünde török on May 29, 2023 at 2:40 pm

    People starting to eat more meat, eggs overall healthier the advisor’s start pushing crickets, bugs, artificial meat eating.

  44. John Brewington on May 29, 2023 at 2:41 pm

    Not buying eating or drinking anything that has high fructose corn syrup is a good start for anyone. Sugar has NO nutrition and is not required by diet. Remember water unsweetened tea and black coffee have 0 sugar

  45. John Brewington on May 29, 2023 at 2:41 pm

    Eat a palm-sized piece of fish chicken or pork each day. Meat is a primary source of protein. Have you ever seen a fat lioness, a fat eagle, a fat wolf ? Portion size matters 😊

  46. dasbof on May 29, 2023 at 2:44 pm

    You have to work VERY hard on a Vegan diet to get the amino acids/proteins and minerals you need and it still is never enough over the long term. Your body find the nutrients from your bones & tissues. Vegans become weak, emaciated, and weak bones over the long term.

  47. Thomas Kostka on May 29, 2023 at 2:45 pm

    Pacific Islanders ate cocnut and it’s oils for thousands of years with almost perfect health. As soon as we started getting processed foods in the 80’s then we now start seeing all these health issues we have now.

    It’s type 2 diabeties. Not type 1 or 3….. stop putting them all in the same basket.

  49. j mc on May 29, 2023 at 2:46 pm

    Beware of sides or absolutes vs what BALANCE of independent good quality science says. Google ‘effect of saturated fat on blood brain barrier.’ Think critically for DYOR.

  50. Joe Rapp on May 29, 2023 at 2:47 pm

    Evidence suggests that fat and protein with vegetables (all low carb) and help a person be healthier, but for example, excessive consumption of protein can cause weight gain through gluconeogenesis, so fasting and a limited caloric consumption are important as well. Perhaps a discussion of the entire dietary picture, not just fat and protein would be a good discussion for Fat 3 (?) Just a suggestion.
