We love to hear good news about our bad habits but this documentary tells it like it is. Don’t look for the latest fad or trend, get back to basics and science. Stuff we probably all know deep down but the films lays it out in a simple motivational way. I cant think of a better way to start 2019 than following the films advice. This approach to health has changed my, and my families life, and is worth your time!
Not saying they are wrong (or right) but this is a 2-hour vegetarian lifestyle infomercial and they should be paying us to watch it. The trailer and description are misleading hence the 1 star.
I am watching this film and will finish it, but I have to take breaks because the jittery-washing-machine background “music” makes me want to scream. In places, it actually overwhelms the voices — which have valuable information to convey — and it. Never. Lets. Up. I’ve made it to the last 15 minutes. I don’t know if I can keep going.
This is like What The Health 2.0. Same vegan doctors telling the public that meat is dangerous and unhealthy. Look around, we have been cutting out animal products sense the 70’s and everyone is getting sicker. Our dietary guidelines are already influenced by them. One thing I will agree on in this movie is don’t eat processed food.
Sick of the paleo and keto carnies. Honestly tired of hearing how many people are scared of fruit and vegetables. The truth is America is the sickest it’s ever been and bashing the vegans isn’t the solution to your health issues. So anyone who bashes this documentary and says it’s a vegan propaganda is just miserable, probably dealing with health issues and they can’t handle to hear their bad habits are killing them. And they are typically lazy sad people in general! Go veggies!
The movie claims the latest research shows one thing while it actually shows another. Do your own research and dont be fooled by an "M.D." title of out of touch with the latest research doctors. The latest research shows that low-carb is the way to go, not the other way around. We've already tried the low-fat way in the last few decades and the results? Obesity epidemic! The problem with veganism and similar diets is that nobody got time and patients to prepare all those elaborate vegan meals so they go back to processed foods. Low-carb diets means you put a steak in a pan, cook it, and you are set for the day. It's more sustainable in the long run for weight loss than buying all the ingridients for vegan meal, hauling them to your home, preparing food from them for like an hour or two, and then eating it for another hour or two - hey its a lot of food, like the movie said.
Great controversial information. It’s true, being on a Keto for the long term is NOT healthy. At all. It works to shed weight, most definitely, but it is not a “lifestyle”. People become converted to Keto because it truly works but it is not ultimately “heathy” for your cardiovascular system at all. The people who give this a low score is because they are following a Keto “diet” - keep that in mind as you watch the movie. The honest truth is that 85% people on Keto “diets” give up after 6 months and revert back. 95% revert back after 12 months. It’s not long-term sustainable...or healthy.
Terrible. The whole purpose of this movie was to counter the Keto or any low carb high fat movement.
Informative but could have done without the systemic conspiracy theory parts at the end. Also would have liked more information on Intermittent Fasting and recommendations on how to learn more about discerning good research from the bad.
While I agree that this film had a lot of good information- I feel the blatant agenda of Veganism overshadowed the useful education. I knew it was going south about halfway through when they downplayed exercise. Also, how can the CEO of Whole Foods comment about the negative affects of olive oil and refined sugars? Has he not been in his store lately?!? I mean peanut brittle by the pounds. HELLO. You can’t preach one way and represent another even in the name of the mighty dollar. I didn’t buy into your plant base - anything that comes from an animal will kill you - agenda. I however do agree that large portions of fruits, vegetables and legumes are an absolute necessity for a healthy lifestyle. At least the film got that right! All in all if you want another agenda driven film shoved down your throat, this is the one for you!
