Good Film...needed more "balance"
3 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have my PE students watch this. It really does make you think, and hopefully it gets across the message of "Moderation" and "Balance"! I do wish the film would have also shown people that are in that moderate zone, those that balance exercise and nutrition, those that live a healthy lifestyle without being obsessive. I will say that I have worked with students, and I personally know people that fit within the extremes of life and they do get a message across. But, I know a lot more that work to live in balance. If the message at the end of the day is to find balance. To balance the healthy food with the junk food; to balance exercise with rest and relaxation. Then the message should of shown people in the middle. We saw people at the extremes, eating disorders, exercise disorders, extreme dieters, and the diet gurus. We did not see people that lived in the middle.
