I’ve had the privilege of seeing it myself and it is brilliant!

So what’s it all about?

The Big Fat Fix is an independent co-production between British Cardiologist Dr Aseem Malhotra  and Donal O’Neill – the Producer of Cereal Killers (2013) and Run on Fat (2015).

Financed by a successful crowdfunding campaign they chose this route to protect the integrity of their “lifestyle as medicine” message and to lay the foundations for a global movement to influence and mobilise change through political, medical and thought leaders.
This movement begins with a private Parliamentary Screening to Members of the British Parliament in Westminster, London tomorrow.

The key points made in the movie are –

  1. There is no Mediterranean Diet – the Greek word “diaita” actually means “lifestyle”. This misinterpretation at the outset was a critical error. The true Med Diet has effectively been lost in translation.
  2. The movie takes them to Pioppi – the UNESCO protected home of the Med Diet in southern Italy – and “beyond food” to define and explore the components of this traditional lifestyle and their potential benefits.
  3. Key findings include the importance of habitual movement & the most effective exercise protocols; Vitamin D; sleep; quality olive oil, fatty acids and the quality of the local produce enjoyed; the absence of sugar in the traditional diet; the re-engineering of wheat since the research took place; social connections; stress.
  4. Heart disease – what is it and how does it happen? Aseem redefines the disease process and tells us we can be significantly more “heart healthy” in just 21 days.
  5. How do we incorporate these elements into a modern lifestyle? Aseem prescribes the lifestyle “pills” we should all be taking daily.
