An amazing job by Vinnie Tortorich and Peter Pardini
2 August 2019 | by PTMovieSee all my reviews

I've been following the work of most of the people featured in this documentary for a while. It's not easy to put so much information in 90 minutes. This movie won't tell you everything you need to know about health and nutrition, but it's a great start. It's very well done, it's based on real science and it tells the story of how we got to the obesity crisis all over the world.
