My Big Fat Diet

On this week’s show, Nora interviews Dr. Jay Wortman, a physician who created a year long dietary study of 100 volunteers from the Namgis Tribal Nation in Alert Bay, B.C., Canada. The study was the subject of an incredible documentary called “My Big Fat Diet”, which has been described as “Supersize Me meets Northern Exposure”. 

The film follows six people from the study who were asked to return to their native diet: a very low carb, moderate protein and high fat diet. The results challenge everything most people ever thought they knew about diet, weight issues and disease prevention.
