‘Diet Fiction’ The Film The Weight Loss Industry Doesn’t Want You to See

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.

Diet Fiction Trailer

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.

We also know the risk associated between consuming Dairy, meat, eggs, and junk foods associated with the activity of the TOR enzyme, which appears to be linked to 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.

The announcement of Diet Fiction follows other enticing documentaries on diet and health such as, Food Choices, Forks Over Knives, Eating You Alive, What the Health, Dominion, The End of Meat, and the premier of the critically acclaimed documentary Game Changers.

Diet Fiction is available now on iTunes for pre-order and will premiere January 1st, 2019.

Thanksgiving Complete Whole-Food, Plant-Based Menu & Shopping List

Preparing a whole Thanksgiving dinner is no easy task. It is certainly not for the weak hearted–but I got your back! I have put together a full menu and a complete comprehensive shopping list!


And, since we know how busy the holidays are, I’ve included some tips to make the day go quick and easy here and also within each recipe! 

  1. SHOPPING – shop in advance, even better order on amazon and never leave your house! You can get everything even 3-4 days in advance and only have to run for small items you may have overlooked the day of cooking.
  2. COOK AHEAD – desserts, sauces, toppings, and stews can be made ahead of time. Often, they even taste better the next day in many items including stuffing, soups, and desserts.
  3. PREP AHEAD – Prepping, cutting, and portioning out dry ingredients ahead of time is a tried and true way to make the day seem so easy.
  4. LEFTOVERS – Let leftovers cool before storing. When storing use BPA free containers, and make sure items are covered to keep them from drying out forgetting contaminated. Buy some extra lemons and squeeze  onto select items to preserve longer without effecting taste. for larger leftovers, freeze in the optimal containers.

Quick & Easy WFPB Post-Workout Cookie

Im super pumped to share this recipe with you!

Walk into a supplement nutrition store, visit your health and wellness isle in Wegmans or your favorite Whole food grocery store, and you will see walls upon walls of health bars, cookies, treats, and eats. 

I’m the guy that stands there and reads EVERY SINGLE ONE! 

There are not many, sorry, none of them take a significant lead because all of them have this ingredient, that ingredient, or all of the ingredients that do not fall under the guidelines for eating WFPB. Few come so close, but those few come down to added oils, or cane-sugar.

I even go back to see if they have changed, used an alternative, or made their product better. Yes, of course you can get by once and a while sneaking in a cookie with the only bad ingredient being cane-sugar, but why settle for less when you can get MORE by making your own for LESS.

Its so simple, companies do not want you to know about it. They will do anything to conveniently package, flavor, and pander to your weaknesses to get you to fall back on them.

DON’T BE A SUCKER!

How long does it take you to get to the grocery store or health food store? In any account, it probably takes you a solid hour by time you factor in travel (to and fro), shopping, checking out. . . .okay we’ve already gone past 15 minutes. Even if you order online, the wait time could be for one week in shipping, and even still down to the final decision maker you don’t end up with powerful nutrition to put into your beautiful body.

I GOT YOU

Ive put together a comprehensive shopping list for you! everything you need will be at your disposal, heck, even if you wan to have your post workout for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. These are so quick and easy tipping them up is as fast as 1-2-3. The hardest part is waiting the mere 8 min for them to cook while the aroma of these puppies seeps into your kitchen.

At first, it can be a daunting process, but you’ll get better and better the more you figure out how to fit the process into your lifestyle, and make your actions more convenient than your buying power. (Remember how long it takes you to go to the store.. the cost for terrible ingredients.. the loss your taking on fresh top quality nutrients!)

But the benefits of making your own go beyond no sacrifice of top quality nutrition and taste. This brings us to one of my greatest strategies for creating change in clients

Strategy 001: Once you start buying quality ingredients to cook your own meals, you start arming your pantry with all the tools you need to grow your health the plant-based way. 

Of course the initial buy of all the ingredients is going to be a bigger expense up front, but once you have them, the time, money, and increase in quality of nutrition you have at your disposal will change your life!

So, since I like you and you like me, I’m going to give you a look inside my pantry. Im highlighting a few key items you need to live by and below here is the most comprehensive list at the best products at the best price to fast track limitless amounts of Post Workout Cookies!

  1. Wildway Banana Nut Grain-Free Granola
Gluten-Free, Non-GMO

#Livewild and top this all off. I love Wildway Banana Nut Grain-Free Granola. This product is great because its packed with great foods you should be eating everyday from organic dates to walnuts, pecans, and flavored with vanilla beans and hint of cinnamon. At a low sodium content and no-oil, the company does a great job at offering a quality product at a great price. you have to pic this up!  The best part is that its super versatile to add anywhere so you’ll be using it more than just in this recipe.

2.  Rob Mills Oat Bran Cereal

Robs Red Mill products are always one of my go-to brands. As soon as I spotted  Rob Mills Oat Bran Cereal I had to try it! Not only has it been a staple breakfast with blueberries and spices, but it is easier on my stomach than quick oats and old fashioned oats. It just seems to digest better and keeps me well satiated with out the indigestion. I also notice that I love the taste more than regular oats! I’ve linked the large package here because I promise this isn’t going to stay long in your pantry.

3.  Date Sugar

I admit it. I am a date sugar addict. Whenever I see cereals, cookies, products adding sweeteners, cane-sugar (almost everywhere), and honey, I cringe. I die little inside. I don’t understand why they don’t use DATE SUGAR?! Maybe because they want to profit by using lower quality, cheaper ingredients? Yes. Date sugar comes at a higher price, but it is the Healthiest sweetener you we have available to us. Its simply dates, ground into a granular sweet powder-and I Run through this stuff. Its so versatile in baking, cooking, sauces, oatmeal, smoothies, wherever you want! I’ve linked the  2 lb bag because your living a successful plant based life, this is on your counter or in your belly!
