  • it’s not a simple one to one with exercise and calorie burning. Regular exercise makes your body burn fat while at rest rather than store it

  • Another thing that would work is to reduce the fat (fried food) and double your food volume without feeling deprived. Go to whole foods. It’s amazing how much more food you get to eat while losing weight.

  • I think the success of green carts in poor neighborhoods proves that people in poor neighborhoods would choose healthy foods if they were made available to them, both in affordability and convenience.

  • Check out this behind-the-scenes look at the filming of the new Your Weight Matters Campaign Public Service Announcement! We are excited to present this first PSA ever produced exclusively by the OAC! Watch the video on the OAC’s YouTube Channel: Your Weight Matters For Your Health: National PSA

  • please to add Closed Caption or interpreter asap Very important: Many deaf people need to know about health. Deaf and hearing are all human. thank you for your concern.. I hope you will do that for deaf.. smile

  • It is not calories in and out. our body is run by hormones and insulin is a fat storing hormone. When we eat sugar/carbohydrates we release lots of insulin and in turn continue to store fat. thats why people who are type 1 diabetics who’s bodies don’t produce insulin waste away without insulin. Their bodies can’t store energy/fat without insulin. If carbs/sugar are restricted our body can release the hormone that burns fat for energy. Our body cannot release insulin and fat burning hormone at the same time. the book by Jason Fung ” The Obesity Code” really explains this

  • Those comments about all calories being the same are NOT true.. some foods stimulate insulin much more and force the body to store fat. There is no doubt that high sugar, processed carbs, will make you fat and that it is pretty impossible to over eat on lettuce or kale! Those comments also ignore the collosal role that hormones play. Hormones are the “messengers” or “instructions” to your brain and cells to eat, store energy, release energy from fat etc.

  • There’s also the help of fasting and the low carb lifestyle. Cheers and big support to every one who’s trying to cut down fat weight!

  • You know your weight matters for your health, and now you can help spread the word to others who need to improve their health! Share the Your Weight Matters Campaign PSA: Your Weight Matters For Your Health: National PSA

  • Its nice to see these people taking their health into their own hands, but some of the advice and perceptions I heard here were way off the current understanding of macronutrients. I cringed when that girl said people were choosing Subway over McDonald’s as if that was a good choice. As well the doctor lumping all calories into the same pile totally steam rolled over how the body handles different macros or more importantly sugar. Good documentary but some outdated advice.

  • Will all doctors and obese people please start demanding the elimination of all FOOD ADS! No one should see any food ads because it makes people think about food every second of their waking life! That’s how they got cigarettes ads off TV! This needs to be done ASAP!

  • Wow, what a REMARKABLE change for the better…and he’ll be around for his children now too! Folks, really, just prepare/or cook your OWN foods…it’s the best first step to good health!

  • I had an experience about 15 years ago that really helped me come out of a major depression. This depression was so bad I actually attempted suicide, but God saved me from that. I was in some deep legal problems that at that time looked like I would eventually end up in prison and I knew my personality type wouldn’t last long there. Confirmed by people that just came out of prison revealed to me in group therapy sessions.

    My Mind got stuck in some sort of negative thinking loop that just wouldn’t turn off. I bought some mentally related books to read hoping for some understanding or solution to my problem. One of them was based on some Buddhist thinking and that one contained the answer to my problem. Of all places, who’d have known. It is the mindful meditation method. I hear some people say it’s only a Buddhist thing that will lead a person into Buddhism, but I disagree. That’s like saying eating vegan leads one to become a Buddhist, if that diet originated with them.

    After I practiced this meditation method for about 3 weeks, a little at a time, once or twice a day, it was like a reset button had been pressed in my brain and all the negative thinking was gone. I felt completely at peace with myself and my confidence level received a huge boost. Also, I’ve never felt the need to repeat this method. I’ve told others about it, but so far, when I asked them how it worked out for them, they’d always say they never tried it.

    Here it is as far as I can remember it:
    1) Find a place where you can sit in a chair (preferably not a super soft or recliner, but like a kitchen chair) where you won’t be disturbed. Indoor or outdoor.
    2) Sit upright without slouching, legs in front, feet flat on the floor. Hands comfortably placed, such as in your lap, etc.
    3) Stare straight ahead eyes open.
    4) Focus slightly on your breathing, slowly in and out, and a little deeper than usual.
    5) Now the hard part. Empty your mind of all thoughts. No pictures, no words, think of nothing at all. When a thought enters your mind, ignore it and go back to no thinking.
    6) Stare straight ahead, without looking around.
    7) Allow your ears to hear and your eyes to see, but that’s all you do. Have no thoughts on any sensory input. Just let things happen.
    8) Do this about 5 minutes or so at a time, and build up to longer time spans over time. It becomes easier over time.

  • I hate all the excuses. No society didn’t make you fat you made yourself fat and it’s your fault and you’re lucky you have people who care about you. People are just lazy bottom line.

  • Raspberries, Strawberry, blueberry with Cantaloupe blended with almond milk + Walking everyday is helping me loose weight. It is my hope that fellow Brothers and Sisters can find ways to better their health life.

  • Calorie deficit and some sort of exercise is key………to many fad diets promising a quick fix ����‍♀️ unfortunately losing weight is uncomfortably and people don’t like that feeling…..in fact since this movie has been made obesity related cancers have increased and people are getting fatter and fatter ����

  • Follow a low carb/high fat or ketogenic way of eating. Add intermittent fasting and losing weight would be even faster. This is no easy way to lose weight. There are other effective diets but strict adherence is necessary. The key to permanent weight loss is to consider the changes to be permanent life style changes, not just a temporary change.

  • The vast majority just have to understand that there is no such thing as a diet. There is a lifestyle.
    I am struggling with weight, always have, because I am an emotional eater. But I manage with set meal times and calorie plan, also healthier food. I figured I don’t need as much food as I WANT, and that’s the end of story. Calculations say I need 1800 calories a day, experience says no more than 1500. There I go, fighting for my wellbeing. Every day. Every meal.
    It gets easier though.

  • Plant based diets are not the answer for everyone. Clean meats and dairy are VERY healthy and practical. The medical field really needs to get their facts straight regarding this issue.

  • I did the fasting thing and while some people can handle it more I coudnt and after the three days I ended up eating way more. My stomach was deprived so much that I ended up overeating to much and probably ended up gaining so much. I do not recommend unless you have enough control and strength so you won’t come back and eat so much. I have now come back to eating three meals a day with calorie tracking as well with healthy snacks in between.

  • All of this research for “obesity prevention” is easily reverse engineered and used against us by the food companies. We just need to execute a few CEOs and this obesity crisis will be over.

  • Does Japan and India have less stress than we have? Is that why they’re thinner? When they come to America and the 2nd and 3rd generation get fat, is it because America has more stress? Or could it be diet, the type of food we eat?

  • I think we need to drop calorie counting. Technically that is how you lose weight HOWEVER is your eating processed nutritionally void but calorically dense foods still it is impossible to feel satisfied on lower calories and you always go above. Instead of focusing on calories focus on whole foods and TONS of veggies and yes potatoes (without all the butter and oils and toppings). You will eat less calories without trying and feel full instead of starving, its really the only way to be long term successful

  • Honestly if their accents didn’t give it away, the fact that they were candlepin bowling certainly gave away the fact that they’re in New England haha. (I live in MA and I’m pretty sure that style of bowling isn’t a thing outside of this region)

  • A calorie is not a calorie. This is just physics and only half the picture. Ok why don’t you eat 1200 kcal of candy and see where it gets you. jesus….. What a load of crap.

  • Have you fat people ever heard of Dutch Tapes? Yes, Dutch Tapes. You put that around your mouth, so you can’t shove food down your throat!

  • The problem is, is how today’s society is and how we do things. From how we get around to working these long hours. No time to take care of yourself.
    The foods we eat. 80% of the foods out there, we were never supposed to eat. Anything processed.
    Eat more veggies, be careful with fruits. Limit meat to about 30 to 40 grams a day. No Dairy/Milk, no grains/bread

  • Do you need help in paper writing, movie reviews, bibs, essays? Visit http://www.onlinefreelancersnetwork.com #TurNtfreelancers on FB and Twitter

  • They talk about three macronutrients: Protein, Carbohydrates, and Fats. It’s scary how many people think grain alcohol has no calories when a gram of pure Ethanol has 7 calories. That shot of unsweetened vodka or white rum is 80 calories. Worse, it ties up your liver until it’s metabolized.

  • I would love to get an update on Yolanda. Her comment about just cutting out the drinks was on point. Many people think that losing weight will be hard, they think of all the addictive food they eat right and don’t want to give them up. But, like Yolanda said: “You just start small with small goals and that adds up”.

  • When entire nations gain weight look at their government.
    Read SALT SUGAR FAT by Michael Moss.
    Don’t buy factory formed fake foods. You’re funding the foe.
    I am seventy eight and weigh what I did when I married fifty eight years and seven children ago. I have never had a weight problem but my heart goes out to the victims of our manufactured food (?) supply.

  • The whole set point / lower metabolism thing is misleading. Maybe it’s because it’s an older documentary but nobody of the same sex and body fat % would have 400 cal difference. Crash dieting can lower your BMR, muscle can raise it a bit, but most importantly, if your BMR is very low after weight loss and you keep the weight off it will go back up eventually. It can take a few year but nobody is “doomed”. Set point isn’t real.

  • It is Written goes from Bible studies to other ways of learning our history like, the serious on the Reformation 500, now this study on health, and other programs that I will be watching also, I just love your programs, I am fascinated and in all that “It is Written” provides, Thank you to all crew members and thank you John Bradshaw, you are a Blessing

  • Your ministry is moving away from preaching repentance to weight loss. I am here to hear the gospel NOT to hear about health. YOUR MISSION IS TO PREACH THE WORD OF GOD NOT TEACH ABOUT WEIGHT LOSS

  • A calorie of fat is very different than a calorie of carbs. Let’s put this in perspective. A teaspoon of fat is 120 calories. A small boiled potato has about 130 calories. Which one will make you feel more full? Now add that fat to your potato, and you have take a healthy food and made it an unhealthy food doubling it’s calorie content. Now top it off with a Coke and you have added 140 calories for a 12 ounce can. Funny thing about liquid calories is they don’t affect hunger. You drink 140 calorie coke and you are just as hungry as you were before you drank it. So the type of calories do count and do make a difference. Don’t let people fool you. Fat and sugar (refined carbohydrates) have no nutritional value and make you fat. To make matters even more difficult, sugar is addicting making it even harder to give it up, and even triggers you to eat more of it. If you don’t think so, try giving it up.

  • When you want to “diet” you slowly eliminate unhealthy foods and drinks from your daily intake. You don’t jump to 7 day cleaneses and diets and other bullcrap. You alter and improve in a way that you and your body will be comfortable with.

  • am i weird because I do crave broccoli and think that vegetables are pleasent? I really think the problem is education! I grow up loving vegetables because my mom taught me that! My mom wasn’t perefet I did develop an unhealthy love for soda when i was a kid, but when i grew up i learned that it wasn’t healthy and i started drinking it a less more! The sodad still exist, it has even got cheaper and easer to obtain, but i know that is not healthy so i choose not to drink it!

  • Solving the obesity epidemic by trying to get people to meditate before eating and jog more, is like trying to train piranhas to like broccoli when they’re in a pool filled with bloody meat. Our environment is saturated with food that makes us fat, everyone knows McDonald’s and ice cream make you fat, and we need to exercise, yet the epidemic keeps getting worse. Trying to drive change from individuals is not working.

  • I wonder why these people are so afraid of cooking something? In all fat documentaries I see people ordering food. It is just salad and grilled chicken. It takes 20 minutes to prepare and 10 min to cook. Why you are so dependent to others cooking for you.
    Cook your own food Take the control of your nutrition

  • Early on you said a calorie is a calorie and to eat less/exercise more, yet you brought Dr Lustig on here! Have you heard his speeches? He gives evidence to the contrary and is an expert in the field.

  • the 4-10 woman eats 1100 calories at maintenance…wow!

    she walks a ton, and then you throw in nonexercise activity thermogenisis and the thermic effect of food, and her basal metabolic rate is in the toilet-probably 500 or 600 calories per day.

    talk about metabolic damage! constant calorie restriction leads to this kind of situation.

    fasting, diet breaks, refeeds, and proper micronutrient intake prevents this kind of a disaster.

  • 29:50 Unsweetened fruit juice has a much lower glycemic index than a sugary soda or even juice with added sugar. A doctor should not be suggesting otherwise. Knowledge is power and misinformation is not helpful!

  • Stomach bypass surgery for every obese American will be less costly than taking care of them in hospitals and paying for the medications they require.

    The only thing is: with the stomach reduced to the size of an egg whereas before the stomach was the size of a melon, the after operation person will be forced to eat much less food and he/she will enjoy their food less, the grocery stores will see much less ground beef and sofas being sold and the fast food chains will go out of business.

  • “I’m just an ordinary person who does a whole bunch of very very tiny ordinary things that together are extraordinary” Love that quote.

  • This is a very powerful program. I will definitely be sharing this information with my friends and family! God bless Pastor Bradshaw and the It Is Written Team.

  • “a calorie is a calorie” is exaclty the coca cola campaign and is just not true, someone below said it but it is sad to see this documentary promoting and pereptuating this idea, whole foods and cutting our all processed foods is the only way to go, and it makes a big difference WHERE your calories are coming from

  • The OAC released a Public Service Announcement video for the Your Weight Matters Campaign this week! Help support this important effort to encourage Americans to speak with a healthcare provider about their weight by watching and sharing the new video: Your Weight Matters For Your Health: National PSA

  • Please set closed-captioned and also having an interpreter for the deaf so deaf people want to learn more about how to stay more healthier to avoid from having expensive medical bills. I’m deaf and I’m disabled since 1995. I was told that I have Atrial Fibrillation and heart failure. My husband has blood pressure problems since 1990’s.

  • When eating fast food, losing weight by eating less is not possible, because so little is so high in calories and fat. So it’s not just about eating less and moving more. You have to choose foods that will satisfy and fill you and not represent 2500 calories per meal.

  • There are some genetic factors as well.my lil sister and i grew up eating the same food but she weighed more and was as tall as i was when she was 6 and i was 10. She been big her whole life and sure things change as an adult but as kids eating the same food doesn’t make sense why one is thin and the other large.

  • Have you seen the new Your Weight Matters Campaign Public Service Announcement? Watch the video and help spread the word about this weight and health awareness initiative: Your Weight Matters For Your Health: National PSA

  • Thank you very much for all your wonderful shows. I have tried a number of churches in my time, BUT your shows resonate so deeply in my heart. You’re a wonderful mentor and very genuine. Looking forward to the shows ahead!

    Blessing and much happiness to you and your family.

  • A calorie is not a calorie. That one lady said she drank 1800 calories of Coke before she had even started eating for the day. That liquid sugar is consumed in addition to your daily caloric intake even if the Coke company is trying to convince you it’s not.

  • You gotta start exercising even if it’s for 10min. Walk around the block, then 2x per day. Chug water before you eat anything, try to cook from scratch.


  • Absolutely wonderful!
    Thankful for all aspects of this video. The doctors advice and tips are noteworthy. Their clinical programs sounds so wholesome. The testimonies were touching and hopeful. May these ladies be additionally blessed for sharing their personal stories. That drink from chef Ani looks yummy and I am sure it will put a smile on faces. Nutritional tips were very valuable in making cooking and eating choices, to help the mind not just the taste buds.
    The spiritual part was comforting and reassuring. There is a God that loves and truly cares.
    Again thank you all for these series. Blessings be multiplied to you all.

  • The OAC is proud to announce a new video Public Service Announcement (PSA) for the Your Weight Matters Campaign! This is the first National PSA produced exclusively by the OAC and we hope you will all join us in celebrating this exciting effort!

  • please could these obese patients starve. fasting will lead to your body using its own fat for fuel. btw ketone bodies metabolise as much as your RMR

  • Amen! I really enjoyed all seven series, the amazing doctors, chefs, powerful testimonies, Pastor John Bradshaw and the entire “It Is Written Team”. Thank you so all! I am heading to a new beginning. God bless you all in Lord Jesus Christ Name! Amen!
