Being that there’s an abundance of misinformation out there sponsored by big pharma and the American Diabetic Association, I thought I would list some of the resources I have been exposed to and consider good information for People with diabetes, (or anyone for that matter.)

Fat Head: You’ve been fed a load of bologna!

Directed by Tom Naughton

Tom Naughton takes a look at some of the nonsense we’ve been taught over the years as what constitutes “healthy eating.”  He decides to conduct an experiment in response to Morgan Spurlock’s “Supersize Me,” to see if someone could actually lose weight eating nothing but fast food for a whole month.  In researching the film, he also discovers how the lipid hypothesis, cholesterol and saturated fat are not the horrible villains that conventional wisdom would have us believe.  He also presents all the information with a light comical twist that is sure not to offend your grandmother.  Very entertaining and informative.
