The SAD Movie...

The Standard American Diet, (the S.A.D.) is in a sorry state.

Living in one of the richest countries in history, Americans are plagued with the highest rates of obesity, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and hypertension in the world.

However, many Americans are stepping outside the cultural bondage of food traditions, and are practicing alternative lifestyles such as the Vegetarian, Vegan, and Raw Vegan Lifestyles.

This film takes an honest look not just at the problems with the SAD diet, but at some real solutions and how to apply them in your own life.

The SAD Movie features interviews with celebrities, athletes, doctors and regular people who are eating alternative diets.

Join us as we seek to find out whether people are really losing weight and improving their health by eating alternative diets, how they are able to do so, what challenges and rewards they face, and how their lives are being impacted.

With a growing interest in plant-based diets, this film offers a look at the practical aspects of eating as naturally as possible!
