Fat’s in, sugar’s out! The low carb, healthy fat lifestyle is a revolution turning the food pyramid on its head.

1:30 What the Fat!?

Ditch the sugar and welcome the fat! That's the new message out from public health academic, Professor Grant Schofield.

He is at the forefront of challenging the widespread fat phobia that he says, has pushed us to eat a diet full of processed, carb-laden food.

And he says a healthy fat lifestyle is a revolution that could turn the food pyramid on its head. It's all in the new book What the Fat? Fat's in, Sugar's Out.

1.40 Dan Slevin on Film

A recent study showed that in 2016 women directors were behind the camera for only seven per cent of the top 250 films at the US box office, a two percentage point drop on the year before. Last year the Women in Film, TV and Media Centre in Los Angeles started a campaign to encourage film fans to watch a film by a woman every week for a year and the hashtag #52filmsbywomen was born. Dan Slevin from RNZ Widescreen, has taken up the challenge for 2017 and tells us about it.
