The Companion Piece to Super Size Me!
10 December 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is an incredible documentary, and really a must watch movie. It is showing what can be done by taking us back to raw foods.

It is well made, very naturalistic, and whilst overtly emotional at times, it never descends into sentimentality.

The results are dramatic, and the exercise is very profound. It was a real wake up call to what we are doing to ourselves, and is thoroughly recommended.

Morgan Spurlock is featured in this movie and it is a great companion piece to his Super Size Me, almost a sequel to what happens if you live the opposite way to what he did in that movie.

A great challenging movie.
