Documentaries are a great motivational and informational tool when you are on a diet. Especially when you want to find out more about how your diet works, without reading scientific articles that all seem to contradict each other.
While there isn’t a specific documentary on the carnivore diet that you can watch, there are plenty of documentaries on low carb diets that you will certainly find fascinating, and that will help you understand why the carnivore diet is so effective. They’re also good motivation if you’re thinking about coming off the carnivore diet.
Let’s take a look at a few of them.
The Magic Pill
Magic pill is a great documentary as it has plenty of information about losing weight, reversing some health conditions, and a lot more. It is full of thought-provoking information about food quality as well.

That Sugar Film
After you watch this documentary, you will start seeing sugar everywhere. It is an eye-opener to the amount of sugar that is present in our food supply. Damon Gameau experiments by taking an equivalent of 40 tsp. of sugar each day.
The irony is that most of these foods are advertised as healthy choices. It is available on Amazon Prime where you can rent or purchase it.
In this documentary, Director Morgan Spurlock runs a social experiment regarding fast-food gastronomy. He attempts to subsist solely on the menu of McDonald’s for an entire month. During this process, his weight increases horrifyingly, his energy levels reduce, and he starts to experience all sorts of terrifying and unexpected side effects.
Moreover, in the documentary, he examines the growing role of the corporate giant in the lives of consumers. He also explores the methods and ways of indoctrinating the youth and the contribution of Mcdonald’s to the obesity epidemic in the US.
You can watch it on Amazon Prime.
The focus of Fed Up is the issue of obesity in the US. The main culprits are, of course, processed foods and sugar. In this documentary, you will learn how the very first dietary guidelines that were issued by the US 30 years ago didn’t look into the role of dietary sugar when it came to increased risk of diabetes, obesity, and other health issues.
These guidelines condoned the addition of unlimited sugar to foods that are consumed by kids, sugar consumption has increased and obesity has skyrocketed. These children not only face impaired health but also have shorter lifespans.
Most of the attempts by schools, states, and parents to provide a healthy diet to their children have been nullified by lobbyists with vested interests in the sugar industry. The documentary also includes a list of those companies that have refused to talk with the filmmakers on this issue.
It is available on Amazon Prime.
