BETTER presents an emotional narrative examining the claim that every action, thought, and food choice can control or reverse deadly diseases, including obesity and diabesity.
Investigating holistic approaches that integrate the body, mind and emotional systems, the film challenges the outdated idea that disease and weight can be controlled by eating less and exercising more.
According to the Harvard Medical School doctors in the film, what we eat, how we think, even who we socialize with can affect our health in profound and newly discovered ways.
BETTER shines a light on the search for a simpler, more effective path, a new way of eating, thinking, and living presented and endorsed by not only top doctors at Harvard Medical School, Johns Hopkins, and The Mayo Clinic, but also #1 New York Times bestselling authors as well as vegan, paleo, and keto experts.
Attempting to end the “diet wars,” BETTER asks the critical question:
What if there were a “unified theory” of eating and living that cures not just diabetes and obesity, but also aims to end the shame and pain caused by the wellness industry?
Is there a BETTER way to live? BETTER tries to answer this question by following the doctors leading this revolution and features intimate portraits of everyday Americans as they explore ways to decrease the dependence on medications and shame based diets.
