Vinny and I recently went and watched That Sugar Film. What a brilliant documentary! There were some stand out points for me:
- The documentary was not about how unhealthy eating cakes and ice-cream was … the star of the show gained a ton of weight and developed serious healthy issues from just 12 weeks of eating “healthy low fat” products recommended traditionally as part of the heart healthy diet!
- The other thing that stood out to me is the role women have in this food revolution we are seeing developing … Damon very rightly pointed out that he started eating a low carb high fat diet when he started dating his girlfriend because she was eating that way and he wanted to impress her. So many women especially use the excuse of not following the LCHF lifestyle because their “husbands would never eat like that” which I think is nonsense.
- The thing that shocked me most was the part of the documentary in the USA where they spoke of “Mountain Dew Mouth” and how some mothers start their babies on soda pop in their bottles! INSANE!
Here’s the official trailer for That Sugar Film – do go and see it!
