We have listed a few interesting film / video links below.
The Magic Pill – on Netflix is an interesting documentary that follows several patients trying the “ketogenic” diet. The evidence presented is anecdotal and not a scientific trial but it is very interesting to watch, as a number of people with a variety of conditions seem to improve significantly. None of the claims about the ketogenic diet in the film (other than weight loss and remission of diabetes) have been scientifically proven.
Robert Lustig – Sugar: The Bitter Truth – on Youtube. There is a good reason why his lecture on sugar has had more than 8 million views on Youtube
Fixing Dad – a wonderful documentary on youtube about two brothers who saved their father from extremely poor health due to diabetic complications, using a low carb diet.
Dr Jason Fung on youtube – Dr Fung has a knack of explaining things really well. He has a particular interest in intermittent fasting and putting diabetes type 2 into remission.
All over the country, “Low Carb Clubs” are springing up. Many of these clubs are run by patients who have been inspired to help others get on track. Check out this inspiring video, featuring the inspirational Andrew Bishop, a Public Health Collaboration Ambassador, who has done just this.
