It's the holidays, which means over the next few weeks it's going to be a veritable orgy of feasting at work parties, family get togethers and more, as turkey, chocolate, stuffing, sweets and candy cane ice cream will all be devoured between now and New Year's Eve. But at some point on January 1st we'll awaken, probably hungover, look in the mirror, and wonder where on Earth that spare tire came from and why our pajama bottoms are suddenly tighter. Eating is part of our culture, and sadly, obesity is becoming a part of that as well, but one documentary proposes to have the answer.

It's the holidays, which means over the next few weeks it's going to be a veritable orgy of feasting at work parties, family get togethers and more, as turkey, chocolate, stuffing, sweets and candy cane ice cream will all be devoured between now and New Year's Eve. But at some point on January 1st we'll awaken, probably hungover, look in the mirror, and wonder where on Earth that spare tire came from and why our pajama bottoms are suddenly tighter. Eating is part of our culture, and sadly, obesity is becoming a part of that as well, but one documentary proposes to have the answer.

"The Perfect Human Diet" brings together scientists and researchers in archaeological science, paleo and forensic anthropology, nutrition and metabolism, biomolecular archaeology, and much more to look at the history of the human diet and try and parse out what we should ideally be eating to maximize our health and well being. And in this exclusive poster for the film, it's pretty clear where that argument lies.

See if you agree when "The Perfect Human Diet" goes VOD on December 21st.
