Carb-Loaded: A Culture Dying to Eat.

From the Carb-Loaded website:

Carb-Loaded: A Culture Dying to Eat is a documentary film written and directed by Lathe Poland and Eric Carlsen. The film explores the exploding diabetes epidemic. Not by coincidence, Lathe was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes in 2010. He thought of himself as a healthy eater. He rarely ate sweets, never drank soda, and had no family history of diabetes.

Why would a seemingly healthy thirty-something like Lathe get a disease like this? A common misconception is that diabetes is either hereditary and it’s not your fault, or you eat junk food like it’s going out of style and you end up diabetic. Is our lifestyle, culture, or food ecosystem enabling the sky-rocketing increase in diabetes and obesity? More importantly, can this wave of momentum be reversed?

Leading nutrition scientists, and doctors weigh in on a food culture that may be responsible for the most expensive healthcare crisis in modern memory.
