Not too long ago, filmmaker Judd Resnick knew he had to make a massive change in his life.

Realizing the danger of an unhealthy lifestyle, he moved from the U.S. to New Zealand with his wife Roxanna. But even with the abundance of fresh and whole foods in his new home country, Judd still faced the challenge of living healthy.

So, he documented his quest to find the answers he was looking for - and ultimately, eliminate the threat of diabetes and other lifestyle-related diseases.

To unlock the mystery of diabetes, Judd sought the expert insights of medical authorities on the subject. He travelled around the world to interview doctors, nutritionists, physical therapists, fitness experts, educators, parents, students, and diabetics.

Using their rich knowledge base, this documentary puts together the pieces of the puzzle to help people understand how this silent, deadly disease works - and more importantly, how to STOP it.

Episode 2: Hidden Sugars & The Rise Of The ‘Bliss Point’

The main culprit for the alarming rise in cases of diabetes is the dramatic increase of sugar, or “carbs” in our diets.
