To conclude our Munchie May series on food documentaries we watched FAT: A Documentary by Peter Curtis Pardini (2019).

Trainer-to-the-stars Vinnie Tortorich exposes the history behind widespread myths regarding healthy eating, fat, and weight loss. Is the American Obesity epidemic a product of culture, government intervention, corporate greed, or lack of will?

And helping us pick through the layers is our medical and comedic guest, Dr. Priyanka Wali, who schools George and Paco on the science behind the doc.

Priyanka Wali is a board-certified Internal Medicine and Obesity Medicine physician who graduated from the University of Southern California cum laude as an undergraduate in Los Angeles and continued her training there for medical school. She completed her residency in Internal Medicine at California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco She is also a nationally recognized expert on the ketogenic diet and has lectured about the impact of insulin resistance and sexual dysfunction at conferences across the United States. In addition to helping patients as a practicing physician, Dr. Wali truly believes that laughter is the best medicine and likes to cover her bases as a touring stand up comedian. She was named by Refinery29 as "50 Female Stand-Up Comedians You Need To Know" and before Covid-19 she performed routinely all throughout the United States and abroad, including corporate gigs, casinos and comedy clubs. She has been featured on KFOG Radio, Women's Health Magazine, The Today Show, Business Insider, Uproxx, Cosmopolitan, India Currents Magazine, and Healthline.
