Hello to my long-lost blog. It has been a while since the beginning of 2013 when I last made a post. Here is a revival post and I am going to be posting more often. So watch this space!
In my conversations with people I regularly tell them about a few good foodies and nutritional documentaries worth watching, I end up writing a bespoke email or something afterwards for different people when it dawned on me just put it on the blog.
So here is one of the lists that I can point you guys towards in future. I realise some of these documentaries are getting a bit old now but a lot of people I speak to have not seen or heard of them at all. I’ve included some links to online versions or Amazon products (affiliate).
I hope you find them motivational in your quest for better nutrition. They’re listed in no particular order by the way.
- Food Matters – My favourite documentary on nutrition. Andrew Saul is the best part for me and I bet you won’t guess his age. There is a good mix of nutritional advice and global activism consciousness in this documentary. It teaches us that we have a duty to ourselves to each the right thing every time we eat. But it also shows us that everything on this planet is connected and the choices you make outside of your body affects everything and everyone.
- FOOD, Inc. – Lets see if you still want to eat pork or even meat after this one? Mc Donalds is the largest meat consumer in the US. When you have that kind of monopoly you can effectively control the entire production line. This leads to battery cattle farms and many more gross scenarios you’ll discover in this film. Again you and I are to blame because we control it with our choices.
- Vegucated – Well in number three place, surprise surprise we go back to the meat story. (Now I’m a meat liker, but are you starting to see a pattern here?) If you can’t kill it and gut it yourself you probably shouldn’t be eating it in the first place.
If the largest strongest and most likely healthiest mammals on the planet and live off of plant-based protein so can you. On top of which the way things are going now is not scalable for the world’s population…
- Fat Sick and Nearly Dead – This is by far one of the most touching health food stories you will ever see. Just because of juicing and a bit of moderate exercise, the man in this story saw differences in himself and his life that cannot be described by me. You have to watch it!
- Super Size Me – Morgan Spurlock in his controversial approach shows us exactly why you don’t want to be eating processed food and especially not processed fast food. He does some rather outrageous things to himself in the name of science.
- Farmageddon – The control of irrelevant laws and big corporates show us how ridiculous America’s (and the rest of the world’s food standards) are. We have people who are trying to make a difference in the world but big company greed is preventing it.
- Sweet Misery (Youtube) – People laugh about aspartame in just about everything, (Coke Zero, Diet Coke, Energade). This documentary is literally ancient, so we’ve known for a while now that aspartame is really incredibly bad stuff. Causing all sorts of problems.
- The Gerson Miracle – Charlotte Gerson is just amazing. She has lived to carry on her father’s work. The Gerson therapy is really just a massive detox, which can and has often rescued people from terminal cancer, among many other illnesses. The first enema is always an interesting activity.
- Hungry for Change – This one has it all, global food control, sugar overload, diets and why they’ll never work as well as detoxing and juicing.
That’s nine. One per weeknight and two on the weekend nights! Enjoy and learn to be healthier via the choices you make.
