★⭐ DIET FICTION ⭐★
Diet Fiction is a ground-breaking feature length documentary from the award-winning filmmaker and producer of the popular film, Food Choices. It follows the audacious Michal Siewierski in his exciting – and somewhat sinister – journey into the controversial world of weight loss and dieting. As he uncovers shocking facts, misleading information and common misconceptions, Michal’s exploration reveals the often-devastating effects that obesity has on people’s lives. By also exposing the viewer to the independent evidence in the field of nutrition science, Diet Fiction delves into solutions that could ultimately lead to long-term sustainable weight loss and improved health for all.
