It is very exciting to see a new documentary in the works about paleo and low carb nutrition. Here is how the film makers describe it:
"In Defense of Fat" clarifies the complex relationship between human evolutionary history and the science - and politics - of nutrition and health.The film is firmly rooted in current scientific research on Ancestral Health, a theory which proposes that the human body is not adapted to an agricultural diet, and especially not to the many processed foods in our daily lives. As a result, 'healthy' low fat diets and "essential" carbohydrates may actually increase rates of diabetes and obesity, and dietary fat may not be to blame for our expanding waistlines. Through in-depth interviews, animation, and examination of our cultural attitudes, “In Defense of Fat” will explain the complex issues at play in our national discussion of diet and health.
They already have big name interviews lined up, like Mark Sisson and Robb Wolf. In order to get this off the ground, they need to raise $50,000. They are doing this through kickstarter. Please consider donating and contribute to the movement!
