BETTER – Feature Documentary Trailer
In 2018 we set out to answer a few fundamental questions. What is a healthy food? What is a way of eating that has the best chance of success for sustained weightloss? What is the reality of shame and the debilitating factors people personally suffer from regarding their diabesity journey?
Writer/director/editor Justin McAleece took on the project along with Founder of Wellness Engineering and NYTimes Bestselling author Jonathan Bailor and a whole crew of important contributors at Blare Media. They created a feature-length documentary called BETTER. Doug Morris was the screenwriter and Tyler Archer helped mold the story in many ways.
Featuring expert interviews at Harvard Medical School with Dr. JoAnn Manson, Dr. Kirsten Davison, Dr. David Ludwig, and Dr. John Ratey, along with testimonials of everyday Americans, we see the pain and heartbreak of the old-fashioned and ineffective “calories in, calories out” model, expose the fictions that led to it, and provide a proven and practical alternative.
#BETTER culminates in offering a proven path toward better living by providing revolutionary methods to lower the body weight “Setpoint” through evidence-based solutions that anyone can use to optimize their current diet (ex. paleo, kosher, keto, vegan, etc.) to prevent and reverse many of today’s most common health issues.
