Must watch if you have not yet woken up to what you are eating
1 May 2018 | by gazcartSee all my reviews

I think this is a must watch and reading the majority of the other reviewers they have completely missed the point. This documentary does not ram its believes down your throat but reiterates the point that if you eat crap your likely to become ill. It makes a some great points that you should eat whole foods, things you recognise that exist naturally, not heavily processed. Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt ( dietdoctor.com) who appears in the film has done so much for this movement. Another great point it makes is that people followed the dietary guidelines they were told as what to reduce and what to increase in their diet but this has not changed the stats of heart diseases, diabetes and obesity. The films message to me is; except for manmade and super-heated fats stop worrying about them and stop eating so much sugar and carb products that are super processed, you will feel better and live longer.
