Welcome to Episode 14 of Life in Focus! It’s a premier, a big movie event, as we get to talk with Caroleen and Tjard Reimann the oh so determined and dedicated couple who produced the first crowd funded feature length documentary about the Paleo lifestyle, We Love Paleo.
I got to meet power couple Caroleen and Tjard at Health Unplugged 2014, where they were showcasing their documentary, We Love Paleo. Caroleen and I hit it off, chatting away in French, and have stayed in touch since then.
On August 31st, 2015 they finally premiered their documentary in London. I decided it was a perfect time to reach out and see what it takes to create an international documentary. Beyond the process, I was interested in knowing more about how it impacted their couple, what they learned from pursuing what is Caroleen’s passion, and where they’re going from here. I’m very fortunate that both of them were willing to be open and candid about the pains and joys of bringing this baby to life.
Correction: Caroleen said that CJ Hunt’s film was released in 2009. The Perfect Human diet came out in 2012.

Both her husband (Tjard) and herself have been adhering to the Paleo lifestyle since late 2011.
