Last weekend my husband and I drove close to two hours to go see the new movie, Fed Up, which is playing only in select theaters. I knew that this was one movie that we had to see right away and I’m so glad we did. I wanted to give you the run down today and encourage you to get out to see this movie, especially those who have it showing at a theater near them!
I’ve watched a lot of food documentaries in my lifetime and nothing gets me fired up more than the truth behind industrial nutrition advice being brought to light. Out of all the documentaries I have seen this one did it the best!
Fed Up was created by Katie Couric, who finally became fed up herself after reporting on childhood obesity for almost the entire span of her working career. She not only found that the advice the government is giving to kids is in no way working, it is in fact only making our kids and ourselves very very sick in the process. That makes me FED UP!
What I appreciated most about the movie:
This movie left me more energized and pumped up for what I am trying to accomplish day in a day out- spread the truth about real food to everyone. I could not sit still in the theater as my heart was pumping faster and faster with each new scene. For those of you in the real food movement you will know exactly what I mean. It was a great movie. It motivated, inspired, and most importantly shed light on the truth.
Everyone who eats should watch this movie!
Go see it. Take your family. Take your friends. Take your co-workers. I also encourage every health care professional to make this movie a must-see. Help your patients learn the truth.
Let me know if you have seen it and what you thought!
