What are your guys views and opinion on various media outlets including television shows (Dr. Oz, etc), magazines(any of them in your local supermarket) and documentaries(Food Inc., Supersize me, fathead, fat sick nearly dead...) and their views on nutrition?
It is very interesting how certain magazines, movies and the media can really affect a persons views on nutrition. Many people seem to consider themselves "nutritionists" after reviewing such movies and taking on the directors viewpoint.

My personal opinion, to be smart at nutrition it almost needs to be studied from various viewpoints and best learned in almost a fully trial and error experience. I am still a beginner at nutrition, but being here definitely helped me learn a lot.

Mass media "information" is most often little more than what comes out of the South end of a North-facing bull. There's almost always another agenda involved in all of it. I have a special dislike for "Dr." Oz and his particular brand of ****.


I've learned over the course of many years to disregard just about everything unless it comes through any of these guys:

I love lyle mcdonald's articles...great stuff...

But yeah, what really upsets me is when people become so droned into a certain tv show or movie and basically become sheep believing word for word what is being said there and not willing to refute....

A lot of people don't even know how to balance macros so they assume everything is junk that is over 500 cals. Then I explain it to them and all I get in return is a bert-stare while they are sipping on 0 calorie pepsi and eating 1100 cals a day. Somehow they manage to convince themselves that that is healthy whilst watching shows listed in op. Not to mention all this "diet" stuff will mess up your body more than an extra 100 cals will
