Unsupersize Me

Runtime: 76m 25s | Release date: 2013

This film features: Dr. T. Colin Campbell.

Unsupersize Me documents the inspiring story of Juan-Carlos Asse, owner of Zen Fitness, a personal training studio in Gainesville, Florida, and his quest to prove that a whole foods, plant-based diet coupled with an exercise regimen is capable of remarkably and rapidly improving the health of any and every individual. Asse takes his lifelong passions of fitness and nutrition out to demonstrate what he has witnessed in his training studio time and time again. The plant-based diet with exercise is the most effective and expeditious way to obtain optimal health.

Asse embarks on a journey with Tracy Ryan, a woman who has been morbidly obese her entire life, guiding her from poor health to a new life - one she could have never envisioned. Watch the amazing transformation as Ryan loses 200 pounds in a single year! The film reveals an interesting twist divulging Asse's past, a seven year sentence served in federal prison for drug charges. While in prison, Asse committed himself to the study and mastery of nutrition and fitness. He uses his incarceration experience to help motivate Ryan. Ryan, once entrapped by her own unhealthy body, escapes her imprisonment and ultimately regains her life. Ryan metamorphoses from a 345 lb. inactive woman burdened by her weight to a healthy, active woman climbing mountains and running half marathons; a woman living life to its fullest.

that was very inspiring .... I felt moved by the raw honesty of this simple but effective process .I as a big person I liked that this was a down to earth 'non smick filming experience', because it felt genuine and grounded , no special tricks, just honest dedication to the process keeping the food and exercise regular and honesty with the camera- I am personally addicted to dairy and with stage 4 cancer and being very overweight it was uplifting to watch this being achieved so this gave me hope that perhaps I can turn off the cancer gene in me and get to see my grandchildren - I will explore being vegan thanks to FMTV and a few of the wonderful recipe clips also and maybe dip my head into the CHina project as well- A big thanks for my continued learning experience ...

Tracy's story is very inspiring! She seems like a beautiful person and her journey really made me want to do it. But please: FILMMAKING LESSONS! Food Matters TV, you should have higher standards for the filmmaking quality of your content. Although the story and information in this documentary is quite interesting, the image, sound, music and graphic design quality are below professional standards. I understand that this content is important because of its information, nutritional and lifestyle facts, but when you look at a good quality film –both from the content and filmmaking standpoint- like FOOD MATTERS, there is just no comparison. This story deserves so much better!
