Lathe Poland is fit, healthy and slim - anything but the classic picture of an adult onset diabetes sufferer. So when he is diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, he can't figure out why. Poland quickly learns that much of what he knew about healthy eating was based on myths or fifty year old science. Carb-Loaded: A Culture Dying to Eat is a chronicle of his search to find out why America's modern food culture is killing us. The upside? There is a lot that can be done!

Carb-Loaded traces the origins of common beliefs about (un)healthy eating through guidance from worldwide experts who offer short and long term solutions and challenge the status quo. 

Featuring interviews with over 25 nutrition writers, doctors, and food activists, including:

  • Gary Taubes, author, Why We Get Fat
  • Mark Sisson, Ironman competitor and author,The Primal Blueprint
  • Marlene Schwartz PHD, Director, Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity, Yale University
  • Brian Wansink  M.D., author, Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think
  • Kashia Cave, Founder, My City Kitchen
