Upending the conventional wisdom of why we gain weight and how to lose it, Fed Up unearths a dirty secret of the American food industry-far more of us get sick from what we eat than anyone has previously realized. Filmmaker Stephanie Soechtig and TV journalist Katie Couric lead us through this potent exposé that uncovers why-despite media attention, the public's fascination with appearance, and government policies to combat childhood obesity-generations of American children will now live shorter lives than their parents did.

It's the sugar that kills baby! A revealing and eye opening film of a problem(food industry) that's hard to beat.
Finally watched the documentary "Fed Up", and I must say that it's thought provoking and earth revealing of just how serious and dangerous the food and obesity problem has became for our nation. Narrated by Katie Couric this film proves that for years the food industry and federal government has been leading us in the wrong direction and our diets are killing us. This film shows a 30 year span of misdirection and bad choices of the government and food industry that scams our children thru advertising and school choice as they become fatter and fatter. Also you see interviews by top doctor's and political people and health experts who give their take on why eating has became such a health crisis. Plus the film follows fat kids and overweight families who continue to struggle with weight despite eating right and exercising. Yet the answer to the problem all lies in the sugar! Food companies have cut out fat yet they added sugar that's the toxic substance that we all love yet it kills us all. As experts say despite cutting calories when sugar is still present it doesn't matter you don't lose weight! And the film states the truth of how federal government is tied into the food industry and will lobby bad food into the local schools of kids and thru TV the advertising sells to kids a sugar taste it's a money making machine that's addictive to the brain. Overall this film is an important watch it's one battle that's gonna be tough to fight, so get "Fed Up" and be ready to fight.
