Gloria B. (glowbird) from SPOKANE, WA
Reviewed on 10/29/2015...
Through the stories of four children's attempts to loose weight, the film starts slow, but ends up blasting the foodmakers, corporations, FDA and present a mini-history of how foods have been marketed, primarily to children & from birth baby formula and foods create sugar addictions. The push toward "low fat" actually increases the food addiction (sugar addiction because while the fat is removed, sugar is added) and leads to increased weight gain and an epidemic of chronic matabolic disease, "a condition that includes high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, diabetes, strokes, and cancer, among other diseases." What comes through clearly is that normal people are confused about what food is "healthy" due to marketing. What I learned is that people who are thin on the outside can be fat on the inside. The condition is called "metabolic obese normal weight," and that being thin does not equate to "healthy." The skinny-fat kids can be pre-diabetic. In the end, I thought it was a very good film that anyone with children or attempting to loose weight should see.
