I've been paleo for several years and it's still a novel concept where I live. (Cajun country.) But the people here are at ground zero for diet-related illnesses. My BFF's husband was pre-diabetic for years and found out yesterday he's full-blown type 2. He's depressed as hell and scared. His dad had diabetes and died from complications, so he knows exactly what the consequences are. Oddly I just watched the film yesterday afternoon before we stopped by our friends' house while I dropped off a birthday gift on our way into town for Valentine's Day. Until this morning I had no idea this had happened.
MDs still push insulin plus a standard American diet with few limitations, instead of a concentrating on the foods that will properly nourish us and not make us sick because as our doc said, medical school only has three hours of nutrition with one of the hours devoted to intravenous feeding. One MD in the movie said doctors get their nutritional info from the same bad sources as everybody else.
Even though our friend and even my husband have been eating my food (and loving it) and know what the deal is, until a diagnosis hits them over the head, they really don't believe it. They eat the same old crap whenever they have the chance and think they're bullet proof. My husband had a heart attack last April and I was able to find a paleo MD for us. In the several months since he had three stents "installed," and he cut out the carbs, processed food, and junky vegetable oils, his lipids and blood sugar and other numbers have almost completely normalized on paleo. And I'm sure the same will be true for my friend's husband.
Normally the notion of going on a heart disease diet or a diabetes diet is depressing as hell. Especially for men. They hate not to eat like a man. Like I told my friend, "On paleo you can still eat like a man. A caveman." It's actually cool and macho as hell for a guy. So instead of passing on the office take-out pizza because they're "on a diet," they can call it what it is: crap.
And the people interviewed in the film show this really well. Who would't want to be like these wonderful men and women? They've all been through medical hell and found a vibrant, hip, delicious way to happy top form. I know once our friend sees this, he'll have a whole new positive outlook, and more importantly a path to regaining his health. Plus the food is delicious. The photos are from my own kitchen.
30 mins into the doc still felt like an introduction. Very vague and a bunch of claims that weren't backed up. I was craving for it to finally start to tell me something real and definitive. I was waiting for them to tell me something where I could go "yes. I cant argue with that." That never came and i'm left very unsatisfied. I know much less and more confused about the paleo diet than before watching. It sounds like paleo is just eating a hunter-gatherer diet. so wild meats and fruits and seeds.
As others have said, a 10 minute google search would have done better instead of wasting my time to watch this.
I've been following this lifestyle as much as possible and I really enjoy it but didn't know know this much about paleo.
Definitely a must see. It's really hard to go and eat in a restaurant, I usually have to special order my food, i'll say just trow some meat on the grill,
skip all the soy based and gluten filled sauces, steamed broccoli and thank you that's all.Only place so far who has this on their menu is Gecko's Grill, Grilled chicken and broccoli.
