About the Movie
Lathe Poland is fit, healthy and slim - anything but the classic picture of an adult onset diabetes sufferer. So when he is diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, he can't figure out why. Poland quickly learns that much of what he knew about healthy eating was based on myths or fifty year old science. Carb-Loaded: A Culture Dying to Eat is a chronicle of his search to find out why America's modern food culture is killing us. The upside? There is a lot that can be done! Carb-Loaded traces the origins of our beliefs about healthful and unhealthful food. Experts from all over the world share insights that are certain to challenge the status quo.
Wonderful Film - Entertaining and Insightful
I have to say I really enjoyed this one. It isn’t your typical gloom and doom type documentary. They don’t take themselves too seriously, and I think it makes it easier to swallow the painful facts they are sharing. Kids will love this one also…my grandson (10 yrs old) watched it with me, and now he reminds me about my "Mr. Pancreas!"
Very educational movie, well put together. Would recommend to my friends.
Excellent documentary even for people who have seen many
I am a bit of a documentary junkie. (Better to be addicted to those than to junk food). But that means I have seen many good ones and many bad ones. Carb Loaded is one of the good ones. Very good. The messaging, the animation, the video quality are all excellent. I feel like I learned several new tips. And was very easy to watch.
