the Perfect Human Diet

Runtime: 87m 25s | Release date: 2012

The Perfect Human Diet is the unprecedented global exploration for a solution to our epidemic of overweight, obesity, and diet-related diseases - the #1 killer in America. This film, by broadcast journalist C.J. Hunt, bypasses current dietary group-think by exploring modern dietary science, previous historical findings, ancestral native diets and the emerging field of human dietary evolution - revealing for the first time, the authentic human diet. Film audiences finally can see what our species truly needs for optimal health and are given a practical template based on scientific facts.


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.

It says we have carnivorous digestive tracts but we don’t. The big cats track is 8ft ours is30ft. Big cats have stronger digestive juices in their stomach to quickly process meat, we don’t. There is no fibre in meat or dairy and these foods being in our system contributes to colon cancer as the meat putrefies in our long digestive tract. Animals and humans are completely different in this regard. We weren’t built to eat meat, but I guess when times were tough we did eat it to survive.

Very disappointing.
I am a new member and thought there would be a lot of research and inspiration to help me in my pursuit of health, happiness, harmony and a peaceful life. I watched the documentaries posted during the free screening trial and thought THIS is what I need! Now I see-- it is just a place (for making money) in which all types of documentaries and philosophies are marketed -- whatever is flavor of the month-- makes me even more confused. I think everyone is entitled to their own beliefs-- but, I will admit that I was very thrilled to think this was in alignment and would help strengthen mine.

Hello Nicole, sorry to hear that you feel this way. At Food Matters TV, we believe that there is not a one size fits all approach when it comes to diet and nutrition, therefore we like to build a library of content that investigates multiple themes to allow you to discover and learn what works best for you. Along with the content on our channel, we always encourage our members to their own research on all topics health and wellness :)

The only real argument for eating meat in this documentary is that there used to be ancestors who were bigger in size, and if we are still here it's because of what they ate. What happens to all the social and demographic evolutions? What about how the world changed with agriculture and animal breeding? Do we live in the same environments as our ancestors did? No. We don't currently find our meet hunting... which means that our ancestors probably ate meat, what? once, twice a year? Do we need the same amount of energy as they did? Not touched upon. What was our ancestor's life expectancy? What were the main causes of death? What has happened to us since agriculture? How where our diets during history different on different continents? It's impressive that anthropologists are used to state something as simplifying such that there was "A" way of eating, in all zones of the world. Again, if the documentalist/presenter chooses scientists and journalists supporting the idea that the perfect diet is what keeps us alive, why didn't he mention the Blue Zones study where there is an in-depth analysis of the eldest living people on Earth from at least 6 or 7 areas? People ate a bit of animal products in special occasions and rituals, and sometimes as a condiment. I am also stroke by the affirmation that beans are bad for us. Wow. This documentary starts by interestingly stating that most of what we hold to be true in nutrition is based on beliefs. But we've left with the same here once more. it's blatantly obvious that many of the scientists interviewed here start with some facts, and then they say "i believe that...." making their own interpretations, when pushed to give a verdict... based on what? their own beliefs! Bottom line: THE perfect diet doesn't exist.

You summed it up well. Watched almost all of FMTV documentaries and my conclusion is the same, bunch of “scientists” trying to interpret the truth. The real truth though is that our evolution was so complex and there are so many factors that affect one’s health that the ultimate answer will be reached about the same time when we uncover the purpose of life.

Hi everyone and a big well done to FMTV for having this documentary, it has some amazing little tipples of scientific knowledge where diet is concerned, thoroughly enjoyed it. Now as for some of the previous comments plants(fruit and vegetable) are alive!! They require everything an animal needs to live, food, water and obviously they breath in CO2 that we breath out, eating healthier shouldn't be about the life or death of the food source and quite frankly being mean because people don't hold your beliefs and trying to push your beliefs onto others with aggression and sometimes pure stupidity is fascist and disrespectful to other human beings, people have a choice and you may not like it but you should respect it and then maybe vegan and vegetarian diets wouldn't be seen as a fad diet but a lifestyle!! Thanks again FMTV.

I loved this film - I found it quite scientific and informational. I'm very grateful to have information like this available even if not everyone agrees with the opinion.

FMTV - could you confirm if this documentary is financed by the meat industry or not? As per one of the comments below. Many thanks.
