Comedian and former health writer Tom Naughton dispenses with the false truths perpetuated in such documentaries as Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me by demonstrating why nearly everything the public has been told about obesity and healthy eating is pure bologna. By losing weight on a high-fat, fast food diet comprised of such dreaded artery-hardeners as double Quarter Pounders and fried chicken, Naughton proves that it's entirely possible to maintain a healthy weight while not depriving ourselves of our favorite foods. Conversations with doctors, nutritionists, and political scientists back up Naughton's claim that government agencies, researchers, scientists, and alarmist documentaries have made Americans so frightened of food that we're losing our ability to enjoy what we eat.
