CJ Hunt is an independent filmmaker who created his 2012 film entitled “In Search Of The Perfect Human Diet” that takes a look at what nutritional approach our bodies were made to run most efficiently on. He travels through time and around the world on an unprecedented global exploration to find a solution to the exploding epidemic of overweight, obesity and diet related disease. The Perfect Human Diet takes us on a 2-million year evolutionary journey to discover breakthrough scientific facts that could change the way we all think about food in the first ever 'Paleo Diet' documentary.
 
In this episode we talk about what Paleo actually means and what the research from around the world shows. Scientists have shown that hunter-gatherer societies which were successful and survived subsisted mostly on animal foods and very little starches. He started out as a raw food vegan and eventually found that he wouldn't have the energy to manage the stresses that life requires. He then talks about how the foods we grew up with may not be the best foods for our bodies. They could be normal and good but they may not be optimal. Then we talk about how he made the movie and how he spent 10 years and $250k to create it. Finally we talk about how travelling allows you to have a deeper respect for lives around the world and their ways of life.
