This is an introduction to the life-saving low-carb diet and the history of how the health establishment was tricked (and bought) into supporting the opposite low-fat diet. The history will infuriate you but the success stories of people ditching the disastrous USDA food pyramid diet and recommendations for diabetics for a simple low-carb diet will inspire you.
This film matches some data (60% of low-carb diabetics were able to get off insulin compared with less than 1% of food pyramid diabetics) with case studies and input from several health professionals weighing in on the subject.
It leaves some questions unanswered (eg are diabetics required to remain on low-carb diet in perpetuity or is their insulin system restored once they lose weight?) and it doesn’t review the drawbacks to the low-carb diet (fatigue, food boredom, and keto acidosis in strict keto plans) but it’s a great overview. To be fair, this film recommends low-carb not no-carb and most problems come from strict keto diets.
Fat Fiction reveals how the United States government relied on questionable evidence to support one of the most damaging public health recommendations in the history of our country: the “low fat diet.”
