FMTV - Carb-Loaded


Runtime: 74m 40s | Release date: 2014

This film features: David Perlmutter, Marion Nestle.

One in three Americans is pre-diabetic. A huge percentage of them do not know that they are sick. Adult onset diabetes is no longer an illness for the obese and elderly. Millions of Americans who regularly exercise and eat a diet recommended by the USDA are classified as "skinny-fat". The connection between the standard American diet and numerous metabolic disorders is now an unspoken fact in most medical circles.

The film traces the origins of our beliefs about healthful and unhealthful food. Experts from all over the world talk about the problems, as well as short and long-term solutions. Among the many experts in the film are authors like Gary Taubes, Mark Sisson, and Melanie Warner. Medical doctors, such as David Perlmutter M.D., David L. Katz, and Timothy Noakes share insights that are certain to challenge the status quo.

Carb-Loaded: A Culture Dying to Eat is a chronicle of the things its writer and director, Lathe Poland, learned after he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. He sought to find out why he got sick because he didn't fit the classic picture of an adult-onset diabetes sufferer. He quickly learned that much of what he knew about healthy eating was based on myths or fifty-year-old science. In the film, he searches out why America's modern food culture is killing us. There is an upside, and a lot that can be done!


Please be advised that although we feel there are important messages in this film, we also acknowledge that there may be conflicting ideologies that challenge beliefs. We like to encourage our viewers to do their own diligent research to determine which is the right approach for them as we regard nutrition and health as being highly individualized and not a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

I've been trying to watch this for several days and it will not load. I don't have a problem with anything else loading. Do you know what the problem could be? Thanks!

Hello Patricia. Sorry for the inconvenience. We suggest letting the video buffer just a little further before viewing it and to also close other browser tabs and windows that you may have opened as this makes a huge difference. You may also try setting the resolution to the lowest resolution as this often resolves playback issues. You can do that by clicking on the gear icon in the video player and choose the lowest resolution. ~ Karelle

that was fun, light , easy to watch ... more evidence of the benefit of eating real food and not a lot of bar codes... I found the type 3 diabetes label interesting - i got rid of the type ll diabetes I had but I think the sugar has crept back in in white carbs and processed food again and I am feeling the effects of poor memory and belly fat increasing - still frightened to detox from sugar again including lactose but I know I need to and I will feel much better again.. another gem of a flim thanks
