Have you ever wondered why diets don’t work? Or did you ever question that maybe you are broken; passed the wrong genes, doomed for devastation?
We are in a diet Revolution. There are hundreds of diets out there in a multi-billion dollar industry. Yet, we are desperate, frustrated, confused and stuck in a vicious yo-yo effect, year after year.
If your looking for answers, trying to cut through the confusion, then look no further. The new documentary, Diet Fiction stands to set our diet straight. Now available on iTunes now for pre-order, Diet Fiction will premiere January 1, 2019.
According to the film, Diet Fiction was produced to, “expose the most popular diets on the planet as well as several misconceptions about weight loss and nutrition. It follows the audacious filmmaker Michal Siewierski (Food Choices) in his treacherous journey into the controversial world of weight loss and dieting, as he uncovers several shocking facts and confronts common misconception, and misleading information propagated by the industry over the last several decades. Showing the often-devastating effects that obesity has on people’s lives and exposing the viewer to new disruptive ideas and science-based evidence that could potentially lead to long term sustainable weight loss and improved health.”
60% of Americans are either obese or overweight, Dr. Angie Sadeghi states. While it may be shifting closer to 70%, Dr. Micheal Greger of Nutritionfacts.org writes that, “one in three American adults is obese, seven times the rate of China and eight times more than Japan. If the current trend continues, virtually 100% of Americans will be obese by the end of the century. Strikingly, the annual cost attributable to obesity among full-time U.S. employees is estimated at $70 billion.”
If diets are selling the cure for our weight, then why are Americans getting sicker and fatter?
The film explores the truth about food addiction, diet, overconsumption, over-nutrition, industry deceit, confusion, poverty, and exercise, as it relates to the current state of obesity and disease.
“It is important to lose weight, but its more important to lose weight in ways that do not mortgage our health”Dr. Dean Ornish
“You are what you eat,” says the Plant-Based Dietician Jullean Hever, “In this extraordinary new documentary, Michal Siewierski absolutely exposes the insidious fiction behind the multi-billion dollar diet industry that leaves millions of people desperate, frustrated, confused in a vicious feedback loop year after year.”
The trailer points out that almost 99% of diets don’t work, that the Standard American Diet (SAD) is killing us, and diets are trapping us in a mass of confusing and conflicting information.
Filmmaker Michal Siewierski sets off on a journey to find answers. Along the way he will risk his safety to uncover and put forth these shocking truths.
Currently, the food industry has accused inactivity, in an erroneous message, that distracts our attention away from the problem, “you cannot out train a bad diet,” the trailer claims. But how far has industry really gone to confuse the population?
“Consumption of manufactured, calorie-rich, nutrient-poor foods, is the prime cause of obesity. Food and beverage intake along with calorie overconsumption are actually more important than physical activity in weight maintenance and loss.”Dr. Micheal Greger
Sugar has also been a long time scapegoat next to exercise, not only to blame for the obesity epidemic, but accused for chronic diseases like Type II Diabetes as well.
“Sugar is not a health food but the idea that is whats wrong with the whole diet, is not correct,”Dr. Neal Barnard
To steal clear of the truth, in order to protect industry profit, Americans’ attention has been pushed away from Chicken meat, milk, refined grains, meat, and fish contaminated with industrial pollutants which may also raise obesity risk.
Other factors of Industrial pollutants that may build up in our body fat from diet may help explain the link between obesity and diabetes. Just take a look at Endocrine-disrupting chemicals in foods, increased uric acid levels from meat and sugar intake, Not getting a good night’s sleep as all may increase obesity risk.
Yet, we continue to ignore these causes. The vicious yo-yo effect of fad diets combine with grand promises to “exercise more” in the new year.
The Trailer also presents the links between food and chronic diseases, obesity as a symptom of poverty, and the genetic predisposition we place on our health.
We know diet and exercise is important, we’ve gotten that right, but the “what” and “how much” is what we have gotten all wrong.
Fortunately, the experts featured in Diet Fiction help set the confusion straight. In fact, they offer a look into a disruptive evidence-based solution for long-term sustainable weight loss and improved health, for good.
Increasingly, businesses, organizations, and the public are becoming more aware of the benefits of plant-based eating. Even the NHS recently recognized the health benefits of an all-plant diet.
A plant-based diet can help prevent and treat obesity and other serious health conditions. Plant-based diets appear to protect against metabolic syndrome and may foster the kinds of gut bacteria linked to reduced obesity risk. Breastfeeding infants may help protect them against subsequent obesity for over 30 years. Green tea, beans, whole grains, and fiber from various sources may also help lower obesity risk. Fiber-consuming bacteria in the gut create the compounds propionate and butyrate, which appear to have an anti-obesity effect. Research has associated nut and dried fruit intake with lower obesity risk.– Dr. Micheal Greger of Nutritionfacts.org
