Fat: What No One is Telling You

As obesity is such a widespread topic in the media these days, it can be hard to take an objective look at the issue, especially for those who are not faced with the problem, rather than looking at it as a character flaw or a complete lack of self-control.

The film Fat: What No One is Telling You takes you through several personal encounters with obesity. It also explains our psychological responses to food, and shows how external pressures (oversized restaurant portions and the unending barrage of food advertisement) make fighting fat so difficult, both on the personal and national levels. The film premieres April 11th on PBS at 9pm ET, but you can watch a preview now on PBS.org. You know I'll be watching!

This is one thing that still amazes me about being overseas and then coming back home to the states. It's almost shameful at times. I get tired of seeing people who say that they can't help themselves, I know I'm ranting and I probably shouldn't get into it right now, but I'll be watching.

Thank you Fit! I need another resource for my speech on obesity and gastric bypass surgery and this may be perfect.
