People around the globe are combating illness through a paradigm shift in eating. And this simple change -- embracing fat as our main fuel -- is showing profound promise in improving the health of people, animals and the planet.
What if most of our modern diseases are really just symptoms of the same problem? The Magic Pill is a character-driven documentary that follows doctors, patients, scientists, chefs, farmers and journalists from around the globe who are combating illness through a paradigm shift in eating. And this simple change -- embracing fat as our main fuel -- is showing profound promise in improving the health of people, animals and the planet.
This documentary helped us to understand the importance of the keto diet
My husband had already tried the keto diet and lost 20 pounds in two months. But he was drifting off it and he stopped losing weight. So, we watched "The Magic Pill" together. We both got really jazzed about the diet. Long story short, now we're both on it.
As a note, the description of the diet in "The Magic Pill" is a description of a Paleo diet, rather than the keto diet. If you want to know the specifics of the keto diet, don't rely on this movie. Instead see Dr. Eric Berg's Youtube videos and also the brochure on his website about the keto diet. There are lots of other websites that also give the specifics of the keto diet. It's a pretty simple diet to follow and easy also. It's really a way of eating rather than a temporary diet.
Also, there are some great recipes for keto bread and keto desserts. I sweeten them with stevia. But you can also use erythritol or xylitol, which are considered safe artificial sweetenera. Keto bread and keto desserts make a long-term approach to keto eating possible for my husband and me.
