Think Fit


Jun 10, 2018

There has been a lot of discussion about the documentary, The Magic Pill. It is a film which presents the benefits of the ketogenic diet. This week on Think Fit we have a discussion about this controversial film.

The Magic Pill has stirred up a lot of controversies lately with the Australian Medical Association requesting that Netflix remove the documentary from its service. Can eating a ketogenic diet cure autism? Can it cure cancer? Can it help you lose weight? These are all topics which are raised and in some instances suggested during the film and is mostly why the film is considered controversial.

One of our guiding principles here at Think Fit is to try and pass on information that is as simple and as unintimidating as possible. That is certainly what we have attempted to do this week. We talk about the main messages of the film, some of the weirder points, what we liked about it and what we didn't. Should people watch this film? Tune in to find out whether we think you should. If you have already seen it, tune in to hear if you agree or disagree with our opinions. Whatever we do, let's continue a discussion about how to live healthier lives.
