Don't waste your energy
16 January 2017 | by kshaharudinSee all my reviews

I've watched a ton of food documentaries, big fan. Sometimes they can be fascinating but more often than not they're typical formulaic meh. We Love Paleo falls head first into that latter category. In essence it's one and a half hours of talking heads, just a handful mind you, them praising how the paleolithic diet has transformed their lives for the better. Inter-cut those with a graphic of some stat or quote. Oh and throw in some everyday footage (shot with a potato in this case) to establish perspective. Maybe a before and after shot. Give me a break.

For the majority of the film you could easy replace Paleo with Keto or it's big sister the Atkins diet that reintroduced people to fats in food again and to be mindful of what spikes our glucose levels. The film doesn't cross any new ground, doesn't mention other competing diets and in fact doesn't take you anywhere. No real insights or dramas or revelations. No negatives of the diet are mentioned (which i guess is in line with the We Heart Paleo title). Humor is non-existent. It's like a really long drawn out propaganda piece for Paleo fans by Paleo fans and really quite dull. The documentary only really picks up when more random talking heads and fast paced music kick off but this is over the end credits and you you'll be glad it's over.

Waste of time. You'll find out more information, quicker and unbiased by surfing the net and reading a handful of paleo blogs, the good and the bad then - check out various LCHF diets like Dukan, ITG even South Beach and then - create your own low carb dietary plan because we're not all the same.

BUT if you MUST watch a Paleo documentary film then maybe try In Search of the Perfect Human Diet (2012) and avoid this schlock.
