Is it possible to ride a bike across the Australian continent (2,100 miles / 3,400 km) without eating carbohydrates?

This documentary follows Warren Hepworth who sets out to ride a pushbike from Perth to Melbourne on a low-carbohydrate and high-fat diet. You’ll see Warren’s preparation for the ride as well as highlights and lowlights from the journey, and the diet change.

The movie attempts to debunk the notion that athletes have to carb load and that you can’t get your energy from fat. In the process we learn that much of what we’ve been told about a healthy diet is wrong. Or, as the creators say:

Fat Chance is a grassroots Australian story of physical conquest that will change the way you feed your family forever.
