This was in my opinion an excellent and educational movie!
30 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Meredith Baxter Birney who played Kate was excellent. It showed her as a closet bulimic. She is so into having a perfect body. She is constantly exercising, running, watching her calories during the day, but when she's starved herself too much, she ends up binging on food secretly at night at her home, or going out to one fast food place to another gorging on burgers, fries and anything she can get her hands on. She even has her little daughter exercising and waters down her daughter's juice to curb HER calories. It takes a toll on her body and she has some dizzy and fainting spells along with a car crash while she's transporting her daughter. Her husband has never caught on about her secret. Finally she is found out about. This is an excellent movie. Meredith Baxter Birney is the best!
