Cereal Killers creator Donal O’ Neill and the Australian cricket team doctor Dr. Peter Brukner set the record straight on British breakfast TV about low carb, high fat diets.
Donal O’ Neill’s father had diabetes and heart disease despite never drinking alcohol and eating a conventional low fat diet. He was worried about suffering from heart disease himself. This led him to researching more about nutrition and diet. He now eats a high fat, low carb diet, in which he gained muscle and loss fat despite exercising for only 8 minutes per week. He says the real message is to ‘eat real food’.
Dr. Peter Brukner lost 12 kg eating a high fat, low carb diet. He recommends that we should be eating less sugar and processed food. He says the problem with eating low fat foods is that food manufacturers replace the fat with sugar which has been disastrous for our health.

About The Cereal Killers Movie:
“A movie with..100,000 calories, 100 eggs, 70% fat, 28 days…and the TRUTH about fat.
The film follows Donal – a lean, fit, seemingly healthy 41 year old man – on a quest to hack his genes and drop dead healthy by avoiding the heart disease and diabetes that has afflicted his family.
Donal’s father Kevin, an Irish gaelic football star from the 1960s, won the first of 2 All Ireland Championships with the Down Senior Football Team in 1960 before the biggest crowd (94,000) ever seen at an Irish sporting event.
When Kevin suffered a heart attack later in life, family and friends were shocked. How does a lean, fit and seemingly healthy man – who has sailed through cardiac stress tests – suddenly fall victim to heart disease?
Can a controversial diet consisting of 70% fat provide the answers?”
