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.

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!

Hi Adriana, thank you for your comment, we appreciate your feedback. Here at Food Matters TV we always strive to bring our subscribers a high-quality level of content. In certain cases, there are some films that are a little older and therefore the production level may be below our usual standard. However, we feel that in this particular circumstance the information within the film 'Unsupersize Me' outweighs its lower standard of production. As always, feel free to send us how you feel anytime, and thanks again! ~ Jasmin

What an inspiration! Well done to all involved. At the start of the movie I was shocked to hear that Tracy was only 29, she looked so much older. By the end she looked like a teenager! The only thing I didn't like was the tattoo rewards but each to their own!.

This is a real encouraging testimony for both the Trainer (thank you, you have encouraged me to do what I've wanted to do for myself and others) and for the Trainee (Thank you for being willing to show your journey in your transformation. You help me to want to encourage my clients to know that it won't take unrealistic amount of time to achieve a changes. And to help dream beyond what you've known to be reality. ) Thank you again.
