Anyone seen this on Netflix?
Going to watch it today hopefully. It's another "top" documentary about food I'd recommend.

I like to watch a lot of Raw food documentaries and information and mix that with Paleo eating.

Raw food info gives you such wonderful information about vegetables and fruits that you never knew, but I don't think we should only eat that 100% so I mix it up with the Paleo.

I watched the movie when it first came out, I had to re-watch it to be sure I was thinking of the same movie before I posted about it.

I wholeheartedly agree that we as Americans need to focus on whole foods and take a few steps back from processed foods (the movie wasn't specifically about this I understand, but they had a lot of comments and pictures pointing to this.). And I agree a diet heavy in whole foods such as fruits, veggies, legumes, whole grains and so forth is very important. But where I found that they dropped the ball is, and this is only my opinion from the video alone, that they didn't differentiate between Pasteurized milk/dairy products and raw milk/dairy products and they didn't go into whether healthy grass fed organic meats made any difference from commercial meats OR eggs from pastured chickens vs. commercial eggs. Those three things result in huge variables, differences that I feel must be included before wiping the slate clean of each of those.

I think they also did not go into the amount of exercise humans got compared to how much they get now, we as a race used to have to work hard physically for our food which made a huge difference between yesteryear and today and our diets and the effects of it on our bodies. Now we have to supplement the lack of physical work for food with exercise to enjoy the same health benefits from the same foods (non-processed, whole, healthy, free range = foods. In that instance).

To me they are not focusing on the big picture in terms of whole body health. They didn't go into how inflammation plays a huge role in heart disease among other things, or all kinds of other studies from all sides of the argument that don't even take into an account of a diet that include meat, eggs, and dairy. But to give them credit, they didn't have to, that isn't what their argument was about.

They did discuss treating the body not the problem, but focused on meat, milk, and eggs as the problem, just like other opinions lean towards other diet related things as the cause.

Overall I think their presentation of the subject was put together well, and they have valid points from very specific research. But it just doesn't go wide enough for me.

Ask me about dōTERRA Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils!
