Storyline

The film traces the origins of our beliefs about healthful and unhealthful food. Experts from all over the world talk about the problems as well as short and long term solutions. Among the many experts in the film are authors like Gary Taubes, Mark Sisson, and Melanie Warner. Medical doctors such as David Perlmutter M.D., David L. Katz, and Timothy Noakes share insights that are certain to challenge the status quo. Carb-Loaded: A Culture Dying to Eat is a chronicle of the things it's writer and director Lathe Poland learned after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. He sought to find out why he got sick, because he didn't fit the classic picture of an adult onset diabetes sufferer. He quickly learned that much of what he knew about healthy eating was based on myths or fifty year old science. In the film he searches out why Americas modern food culture is killing us. The upside? There is a lot that can be done!

Brilliant Movie
27 April 2016 | by hemalthakkarSee all my reviews

Another amazing movie by the Food Matters team! It simplifies the notion of the complex phenomenon food has become thanks to the western diet. Really simple solutions reiterated, it is really not that difficult to eat healthy. I like how the research was brought together from different angles making the documentary holistic.

For those who want to understand food and nutrition, this is a must watch.

The western diet has really been twisted and turned to suit the corporate industries who have taken over our food system therefore, To sum it up,JUST EAT REAL FOOD!!(Organic, Local and Seasonal)
