Are You Fed Up? You Will Be Soon

donuts

There’s a new documentary out that aims to prove that “everything we’ve been told about food and exercise for the past 30 years is dead wrong.”

That’s a strong statement, and mostly true if the only place you’ve been getting your news on food and exercise is from the mainstream media. Mass-media outlets love to simplify and scandalize the news, rarely digging deeper into the complex workings of behind-the-scenes messaging strategies led by lobbyists and their huge advertising budgets.

As a result, despite a diet filled with “low-fat foods” and lots of emphasis on exercise—”Let’s Move!”—obesity remains an epidemic in America.

What gives? Fed Up, a new documentary narrated and executive-produced by Katie Couric and co-executive-produced by Laurie David (who also produced An Inconvenient Truth) investigates the key role that sugar plays in the American diet—and how the sugar lobby has bullied the government into putting the blame on lack of exercise rather than the fact that Americans are now consuming 130 pounds of sugar each year (much of it hidden in processed low-fat foods, sodas, juices, and “energy drinks”).

The film does an excellent job explaining how sugar works in the body, how there’s been a giant cover-up of the scientific and medical evidence that sugar is causing the obesity and diabetes epidemic, and how overuse is harming our children’s lives.

The sugar lobby is connected to the corn lobby is connected to the agriculture lobby is connected to the oil, gas, and coal lobby—supporting a system that is immensely profitable to a few giant organizations and yet devastatingly destructive to our children, our Earth, and our viability as a species.

Fed Up shines a spotlight on a big problem. See it, and consider it an important step in the process of understanding how powerful American commodity groups can impact policy, public opinion, and ultimately public health.The real problem is actually much, much bigger. But your part in the solution can be simple: Eat real food, organic if possible, as closely aligned with nature as possible.  

What does that mean?

The truth is, while we all love to demonize singular things—Sugar! Fat! Salt!—moderation is always the key—with an emphasis on the real deal: from nature and organic!

See Fed Up and start making a positive difference today. You have the power to make the right choices for yourself, for your family and for the earth.

    Dr. Joel Wallach has completed well over 30 years of research. Healthy nutrition, including real food and 90 essential nutrients are required to allow the body to heal itself.

    I went “Epi-Paleo” 3 months ago – all of the above guidelines for real food + no grains & fruit only in season, and I feel awesome. Ditched my thyroid meds and my labs are still looking good.

    This may sound odd, but sugar causes pain for me (or at least makes me feel it) When I ditched sugar completely, the pain in my sacroiliac that plagued me for almost a year vanished. If I eat a few nibbles of even organic 75% dark chocolate, I feel it. Its not as bad as before, but I notice a difference.

    I can weed the garden (hoeing, raking, cultivating, pulling – the garden is my ‘gym’) for 4 hours straight and feel no residual effects in the morning, while my kids do complain of their shoulders aching doing half the work. But if I have had any sugar (or even more carbs than I should), I get the same aches + fatigue to boot.

    I always thought sugar was the ONE thing I could never give up – but let me tell you, I no longer crave it and almost 20 lost pounds later, its totally worth it.
