December 3, 2014 · Leave a Comment

The search for the Perfect Human Diet has been on for ages. The documentary tackles the issue of a perfect diet from the point of view of Human Evolution. The main premise is if what our ancestors ate helped the human species to be the dominant one today, then there is something to that diet. Journalist C.J. Hunt travels around the US and visits cities in Germany and France to get answers to this question from an anthropological perspective talking to experts in this field who specialized in the diet and nutrition of Homo sapiens.

Some of the conclusions that can be drawn from this documentary are that since the industrial revolution, there has been a significant change in the human diet due to the increase of processed and refined foods. It has changed the way humans view food and has become a matter of convenience. According to C.J. Hunt’s quest for the Perfect Human Diet, the Paleo Diet seems to be the most apt for human consumption and health, and also a key to reducing the epidemic of obesity prevailing currently in the world.
