The film traces the origins of our beliefs about healthful and unhealthful food. Experts from all over the world talk about the problems as well as short and long term solutions. Among the many experts in the film are authors like Gary Taubes, Mark Sisson, and Melanie Warner. Medical doctors such as David Perlmutter M.D., David L. Katz, and Timothy Noakes share insights that are certain to challenge the status quo. Carb-Loaded: A Culture Dying to Eat is a chronicle of the things it's writer and director Lathe Poland learned after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. He sought to find out why he got sick, because he didn't fit the classic picture of an adult onset diabetes sufferer. He quickly learned that much of what he knew about healthy eating was based on myths or fifty year old science. In the film he searches out why Americas modern food culture is killing us. The upside? There is a lot that can be done!

That being said, the woman at the end RUINED the film for me. Anyone who says "butter from a pasture-raised cow" makes me want to throw something! Unless you're milking that cow, churning the butter, packing that butter, etc. etc., I would be willing to bet that butter comes from more than one cow. It just sounds so elitist and there are so many people (*cough cough Crossfitters*) who use this "phrase" lately ... just a BIG pet peeve of mine. It also further perpetuates the myth that our food - even organic and well sourced food - comes from a single source - which even in this case or in the case of even most small farms isn't even close to true. That's like saying "eggs from a grass-fed pastured chicken" ... like, good luck waiting for that one chicken to lay all of those eggs - my guess is several chickens produced the eggs as well.
The movie never insults -- instead, it keeps you smiling most of the time -- but opens with an surprising revelation regarding one of the two stars of the movie having had diabetes-related health issues because of his high carb diet despite exercising and maintaining a low % of bodyfat. (NOTE: there are others such as Tim Noakes, TJ Murphy who followed the high carb approach and also ended up with insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, etc., despite hours of endurance training, etc.)
BTW, stay through the whole movie -- a couple of humorous outtakes at the end.
I was unimpressed with the emphasis on organic and grass fed as being the only "real food"....and on the lady who said that it's time to leave "fake fats" like soy, canola, etc and use only "real" fats like olive oil and coconut...lol, there is no difference. They are all grown and pressed from plants. So this video hit a little closer to the mark. If you want the actual science behind healthy eating, google and read about the Harvard Healthy Eating Pyramid.
