Gain an insight into why we are eating the wrong food pyramid, why it came about (politics, wheat lobbyists and food stamps), why fat isn't the problem and sugar is.
I have many more on my YouTube channel, so take a look regularly as I add more. Let me know in the comments below, of your favourite documentary that changed your way of thinking.
Watch and understand why current dietary guidelines not only don't help us, but are actually contributing to the current obesity and T2 diabetes epidemic.
1: Where it ALL started. The McGovern report and why the scientists couldn't wait for evidence!! Seriously, we have been paying the price ever since.
2: Robert Lustig - Sugar: The Bitter Truth.

3: Prof Tim Noakes - The Real Meal Revolution. Tim Noakes is a professor of exercise and sport science at the University of Cape Town, South Africa and is one of the worlds leading experts on Low Carb High Fat (or Banting, as it is called in South Africa, after William Banting). He has run over 70 marathons and ultra marathons, ate a 'healthy' diet yet still developed Type 2 Diabetes. He is so influential,I have added 3 videos of him.
The first is a 5 minute insight into Low Carb high Fat (Banting) diet. The third is an incredibly informative lecture given in 30 minutes trying to correct and address the last 60 years of dietary advice, and why "cholesterol is not an important factor for heart disease and current dietary recommendations do more harm than good".
