Project Summary

When anyone talks about weight loss, it always feels like the blame game. The way we want to approach the subject of obesity and weight loss is by asking “Why?” 

We have been researching the science behind losing weight and what we have found is nothing short of extraordinary. We've been using what we’ve learned, and are achieving results that we never thought were possible.

Notable Participants

"Why Am I So Fat?" Notable Participants

These are just few names and magazines we have already interviewed for the film and others that have confirmed their participation:

Ashley Borden, Adam Bornstein, Dr. Kelly Brownell, Chippendales, Fit Pregnancy, Isabel De Los Rios, Michael George, Dallas and Melissa Hartwig, Jane Lynch, Drew Manning, Men's Fitness, Patrick Murphy, Muscle and Fitness, Muscle and Fitness Hers, Natural Health, Nitro, Gunnar Peterson, Vernon Peterson, Bill Phillips, Dr. Al Sears, SHAPE, Nell Stephenson, Tender Greens and more!

What You Get

Claim any of the perks $50 or higher and you will be a participant in this epic journey.  We’re going to supply you the secrets revealed in the film so you can experience your own body transformation and tell us about it.  You may even end up in the movie, on the DVD or featured on our site.

Our perks for contributing to the cause range from the affordable to the extreme. If you’re interested in lending a helping hand, $5 can get you a thank you and the warm feeling that goes along with knowing you are helping the world lose weight, or $20,000 can get you 6 months of personal training and nutrition guidance from the same expert that helped many of those featured in the film.

Where Your Money Goes


Thanks to generous contributions of previous campaigns, we have been able to film exceptional interviews in Salt Lake City, Florida, Las Vegas, and all over Southern California. We have additional influential people who want to be part of the film in Chicago, Boston, and New York City but we need your help to get there.


We are ¾ of the way through filming, but footage alone doesn’t equal a finished documentary. This film reveals many secrets about health, nutrition, and weight loss. We want to make sure these are shown in a fun and easy to understand way with the help of skilled editing and intriguing animation. It turns out that skilled editing and intriguing animation don’t come cheap.

The Impact

Ask anyone how to lose weight and they will likely tell you: eat healthy, exercise more; but the answers, and results, stop there.

We’re providing the science behind the answers to truly inform the public and empower them to take control of their health, their weight and their lives.

Documentaries like Super Size MeKing CornFast Food Nation and Forks Over Knives all touch on the subject of our diet and where food is coming from, but none of them delve into the science behind how that food truly affects our bodies. This is bigger than the food pyramid we learned in elementary school.
