Hungry for Change - Netflix

I just watched this and found it very insightful regarding American food habits and the big business and psychology behind them. After watching it made me want to eat a lot more 'clean'. Before I didn't quite understand and thought that as long as I eat low carb (processed junk and all) I was making good healthy decisions. Which, looking back - they were much better choices than what I was making before going low carb. But, the movie made me think about the junk that I am still eating/drinking and the long term impact it has on my general health. It made me want to try a little harder to take the next step to detox from all those bad habits I still have (diet soda, Atkins bars- etc.)

There were some topics in the movie that don't quite work for my lifestyle (re: juicing) but I can still see the value for people who are not following a low carb lifestyle.

Anywho, I recommend watching. At a minimum it is good info.

I saw this a few months ago. It was pretty good, more so for non-low carbers though. But with some very good advice. :-)

I will have to give this one a watch. Thanks for the recommendation.

I have watched a couple of weight loss/food documentaries on Netflix that I really enjoyed.

Forks over Knives and Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. Both of these are really aimed at a vegetarian/juicing lifestyle, but I find both of them to be very inspirational either way.

I watched this on Netflix recently also, and agree it is a good documentary. Highly recommend it if you want to learn more about how food manufacturers keep us addicted to their unhealthy products so they can sell more.

I really loved this documentary. I actually three pages of notes while watching.

I would say it is WOE-agnostic but is in support of eating only whole foods and removing sugar. Some of the ideas I got out of it:
  • Sugar makes you fat and many processed foods like bread become sugar upon entering the blood stream.
  • Sugar is no different from tobacco, alcohol, and drugs in its effect on health.
  • Throughout history people have thrived on a wide range of diets, i.e. Inuits who eat animal muscle, fat, and organs, whereas inhabitants of more temperate climates eat more fruits and vegetables. No population on earth developed on a vegan diet.
  • Obesity is the body's response to chronic stress as it tries to protect you from trauma, drama, and daily woes.
There was more and I highly recommend that you check out this documentary.
