Zack’s Notes

  • This is a magnolia film, you can tell the production value just in the beginning scenes.
  • Chicken farmers borrow 500k for two houses and earn $18k a year? How is that even a business? Someone needs to call Dave Ramsey before becoming a chicken farmer!
  • I do agree that the regulatory people should not have worked or work for the food companies.
  • Only 13 slaughterhouses ?
  • 32,000 hogs per day.. how did that kill floor work?
  • NAFTA cut over a million farmers out of work since they couldn’t compete with our cheap corn

FEEDBACK: LeRoy: I've been enjoying your podcasts and commend you for going through your fit 2 fat journey in public.  I have a documentary suggestion for you.  Fat Head is a counter point to Super Size Me.  I think you will enjoy it.  It chould be available on Netflix streaming and maybe Amazon Prime or Hulu.  Give it a look and share your thoughts.

As far as diet plans go, I've had the biggest success getting rid of carbohydrates.  All of these are empty calories and do not satisfy your hunger for very long.  Check out Atkins, Weston A Price, Jimmy Moore's podcasts etc.  I'll send more links as I think of them.  The information available is almost overwhelming.

upant:  Just listened to F2F#9   cooking in a truck does not sound like fun or something easy to keep doing these guys do a paleo podcast but not as good as yours. this page is their caveman diet. podcast 8 is a 9 week success story yours  http://www.cavemandoctor.com/about/diet/ (where is my F@F t-shirt for that kiss-up??? LOL) i dropped to 198lbs last week and celebrated with a pound of cake ....oh well can't be perfect all of the time. dang kids and their birthdays Keep up the good work and don't give up.
