A couple of quick weekend announcements.

Netflix Canada

Fat  Head is now available on Netflix for our friends across the northern border.   We hope to be moving into other international markets soon.  I’ll keep you posted.

Join me on a podcast show

Dr. Robert Su asked me to join him for another Carbohydrates Can Kill podcast show sometime in the next couple of weeks.  This time it will be a roundtable discussion show, and he proposed what I think is an excellent idea:  inviting some Fat Head fans to call in and join the discussion, asking questions of Dr. Su or me.

We can only have a few people join us for the recording of the show, so to be fair it’s going to be a first-come, first-selected deal.  Whoever is selected will need to available to call in when we record the show, which will probably be on a weekend.

If you’d like to participate, post a comment requesting to join the show — be sure to fill out the email field accurately, because that’s how Dr. Su will get in touch.  (No one sees your email address in comments except me.)  Once you see five or six requests in the comments, it means we’ve already filled the available spots.

    Hey Tom,

    This “Fat Head” fan is always available to talk about LCHF! Lookig forward to it!

    You’re first in line … and you didn’t even have to camp on the sidewalk.

  2. Erin says:

    It would be awesome if Fat Head came to Foxtel! (Australian TV cable)
    All our dietary advice is a carbon copy of America, but that’s not suprising…

    The same distributor who placed Fat Head on Netflix is looking into several other markets now, including Australia.

  3. Howard says:

    Hi Tom! Howard here. I would like to participate in your podcast with Dr. Su, and I think that Georgene would like to, as well.

    You’re second in line. Happy to have you aboard.

  4. Hey, Tom! It was nice of Howard to “invite” me, but I’m going to pass on this one and let someone else have my spot. I do look forward to hearing the podcast, though!

    No problem.

  5. Kati says:

    Hi Tom,
    Hoping to get in on this. :) Let me know if I make the cut.

    You’re third in line, so you’re probably in.

  6. Charlie Shaughnessy says:

    As an avid listener of Jimmy Moore’s and Robert Su’s podcast I would love to call in and harass you guys with all the arguments that my low-fat vegan friend keeps telling me is the best, healthiest diet in the world.

    You’re fourth in line. It’ll depend on how many people he can accommodate.

  7. Bernardo says:

    Now I can link your movie on Netflix to my Canadian friends. Thanks! I ended up buying the DVD but I can only lend it to one person at a time :P

    We find that a lot of people who watch it on Netflix order a copy, perhaps partly to get the two bonus tracks (38 minutes of extra interviews, plus the Big Fat Fiasco speech).

  8. LCNana says:

    I’m going to pass too, Tom, because I’m such a neophyte that I would not be a good candidate, but gee, thanks so much for the invite to us all. I’m sure many of your real ‘expert’ commentors will chime in and add a lot to the discussion.

    Bless you for all your work (and for all the fun you give us). I’ll pray for you at Mass this am.

    Carbohydrates can indeed kill and maim, and leave children orphaned.
    The Edward M Kennedy’s and Cancer.

    Kara Kennedy was diagnosed with lung cancer in 2002, just died while exercising in a health club on Friday.
    Her brother E. Kennedy Jr lost a leg to bone cancer at 12, in 1973.
    Her brother Patrick had non-cancerous tumor removed from his spine in 1988.
    Her mother, Joan Bennett Kennedy is a chronic alcoholic and had breast cancer in 2005.
    Her father, Sen. Edward Kennedy, died in 2009 of a malignant brain tumor.
    Coincidence? I think not. Caused by ‘Wheat Belly’ and the SAD and all that sugar cancer cells so dearly love? I think that is a strong possibility.

  10. Count me in, if it’s not too late.

    You’re fifth in line. It’ll depend on how many people he can accommodate. I told him I’d send him contact info for five or six people, figuring not everyone will be available at the call-in time.

  11. Julie says:

    I would like to join the podcast as well.

    You’re sixth in line. It’s starting to get iffy, but I’ll send Dr. Su your info.

  12. Speaking of Netflix (I know I’m off-topic, sorry), have you seen “The Medicated Child”? I just watched it and it is terrifying. Children are being diagnosed as ADHD for being put on a sugar-coaster, and then the doctors look at these children and say, “oh, no, it’s actually Bipolar Disorder.” Then they’re putting the kids on powerful anti-psychotic medicines that have not been tested in children. They throw pill after pill at these poor kids who just need good nutrition, good parenting, and the chance to play!

    Yup, I posted about it awhile back.

  13. I’ll be happy to join you for the round table!!!! Hope there’s place for 6!

    You’re seventh in line. The odds are dwindling.

  14. Nowhereman says:

    Do you think our favorite vegetrollian will call in? :D

    He keeps trying to post here, but I don’t think I’ll put him on the call list.

  15. bullinachinashop says:

    Ok Tom, I’m going to try netflix thanks to you. Is there a link or promo code I should enter so that you can get credit for it?

    None that I know of.

    Carbohydrates (a.k.a sugar by any other name, whole, unprocessed, wheat, turbinado or otherwise) kill. Just an addendum to the Kennedy cancer epidemic. Kara Kennedy was only 51. By all accounts she was a chronic, constant, incessant exerciser.Most likely eating ‘Healthywholegrains’ and Healthyjoggingswimmingexercisinglikeafiend’. I have no idea what she ate, but almost every person born in the US since 1960, continuing until today, eats bread- of this I am certain. I no longer eat it, but only in the past 3 years did I learn the necessary information and figured it out and gave it up.
    Her brother Patrick had a ‘non-cancerous’ tumor. Stephanie Seneff (computer science professor at MIT and one of my go to bloggers for nutrition information, surprisingly) is pretty convinced that tumors are protective, for a time, against the constant onslaught of high blood sugar. The tumor and the pre-cancerous, altered cells inside it can sequester the sugar and keep it safely away from the rest of the delicate and more easily fried structures and cells- until they no longer can keep up. Stephanie also says she thinks the heart is protected from a high-sugar diet, for a while, too by its ability to run on lactate, but eventually succumbs also. In the obituary for Kara Kennedy, some spokesperson said she was healthy, physically active, had cancer remission etc and they were unaware she had heart disease. She probably didn’t have heart disease. Her heart and blood vessels must have just given out over the constant onslaught of sugar and low-grade fuel.

    Well there should be. If you’re pushing people in new markets to try out netflix to see your movie, you should get a chance to “wet your beak” a little.

  18. Gerard ONeil says:

    No questions for Dr. Su but I will be listening. Last week, I bought a copy of Wheat Belly. I have been low carbing (reliously) for about 13 years but I never realized wheat was so complicated. Anyway it’s a great book and I am enjoying it. In fact, on a whim, I made today DAY ONE of my wheat fast.
    Soooo Keep up the good work.

    I hope what wheat fast lasts a long time.

  19. minerva says:

    Thanks for making Fat Head available to Canadian viewers. My first thought was great..I -just- ordered it from Amazon but after watching it on Netflix I know that hard copy will come in mighty handy to loan out to family.

    The DVD also contains 38 minutes of extra interview footage with my on-screen experts.
