Flaxmere is a small town in the Hawkes Bay in New Zealand. Taine Randell is an ex rugby player and has paired with NZ nutritionist Ben Warren to endeavor to improve the health and well being of Flaxmere. Flaxmere is known for their high stats of obesity, heart disease, diabetes etc.
It is only available for people in NZ but I'm sure you can find the clip somewhere else if you live else where.
This is very inspirational and shows that high fat diets are the way forwards. As skeptical as you might be, check out the video and do some research on high fat/paleo/primal/traditional diets.
Be prepared to be blown away.. Share this clip with your friends and family. Enjoy :)
