“Fed Up” Review

This is the first year that more people will die from obesity than starvation, and it doesn’t have to be this way. I just watched “Fed Up” last night, and if you haven’t seen it yet, I highly recommend it.

This is a must see for anyone who eats food.

You don’t have to be a health nut to be aware of what is going on in the food industry. In fact, those who are not aware of what they are eating need to see this film the most. 

The film follows around three obese children, and weaves their story in between interviews with leading health experts such as Michael Pollan, David Wolfe, and Dr. Hyman.

The film is a bittersweet pill to swallow, but often times it’s the unpleasant message that needs to be heard the most.

Good quotes and info from “Fed Up”:

“In 1980 there were zero cases of Adolescent Type 2 Diabetes. In 2010 there were over 51,000.”

“You can eat a bowl of cornflakes with no added sugar, or a bowl of sugar with no added cornflakes. They might taste different, but below the neckline they are exactly the same.”

What about you? Are you fed up? What will you do to make a change?
