Fed Up is a functional documentary that proves to be effective in getting the message across to millions about America’s addiction to unhealthy food. The movie focuses specifically on childhood obesity, the dangerous practices of big food companies and the lack of willpower to address these worsening health problems. This Stephanie Soechtig’s movie is the most recent among those long lines of passionate desires for action documentaries, that follow the footsteps of An Inconvenient Truth. The movie also boasts about its executive producer, Laurie David. He is a professional executioner of big names like narrator, Katie Couric and a lot more.

Fed Up is a realistic movie about workers and the horrific truths about food.

Fed Up which features an exclusive interview with former US President Bill Clinton, puts the flick in the position to become one of this year’s high-profile commercial documentaries of all time.

Katie Couric opens up the film with a voiceover, focusing on her long years of reporting those revealing stories about the epidemics of obesity. This film was beautifully coupled by film clips from YouTube and Here Comes Honey Boo Boo. As such, there is no need for some convincing points to excellently connect the dots between those Americans who were doubling their sugar intakes since 1977 and; the swift growth of Type 2 Diabetes in the last three decades. At the same time, the food and weight loss industries continued to emphasize that you can eat whatever you want, as long as you exercise regularly to burn it off.- A health myth that was effectively debunked somewhere in the film.

Further, this provocative movie leans heavily on emotional video diaries from several kids who were struggling with weight issues. One video was about a 14-year old kid who has decided to get a lap band surgery. There was also something about a 12-year old girl who exercises regularly but was unable to lose weight. Meanwhile, a 15- year old tries his best to change his eating habits. Lastly, there was a girl who admitted that she loved food and sneaks so much. In fact, she goes out to buy them if she does not have it at home. This scenario is not good because this is the first generation of kids in the last two centuries who are expected to have much shorter lifespans than their parents.

While watching the movie, the first question that will come to your is this: Why do authorities failed to resolve these life-threatening issues for so long? Practically, this attention catching documentary aims to get its audience more passionate enough to start a relevant social reform. Stephanie Soechtig’s movie stresses that in the conflict between promoting health and promoting a given industry, the sure victor is nonetheless the huge economic industry.

As a result, processed food remains affordable and easily accessible to everyone. Unfortunately, school nutrition budgets have been cut while fast food is being served to more than half of US schools and companies. Most food varieties dump so much sugar in many different forms. The film focuses on how to curb those practices that are evidently harmful to kids. Significantly, these were inevitably met with nanny state talking points from right-winged commentators and politicians.

Respectable doctors, PhDs, journalists and experts are joined together with Bill Clinton that reflects whether his administration had done more in immediately addressing this longstanding health issue. Meanwhile, the series of profiles about those children who dealt with obesity are the most effective and yet appealing contents in the flick. The Let’s Move campaign which aims to educate children about healthy diets, exercise and the subsidized school lunch program are said to be less-effective in presenting a genuine social advocacy in today’s modern world.

Fed Up’s director together with its co-writer have effectively lined up a wide range of selections in relation to those facts and interviews that would eventually modify the way that audiences tend to perceive and consume food. Specifically, there were convincing computer graphics that strongly support the film’s key points in demonstrating the whims of human biology and the kids’ individual stories which have left an emotional heft.

Finally, the makers of Fed Up have justifiably concluded that Americans have doubled their sugar intakes. In effect, the levels of liver toxics dramatically increase. Thus, sugars in processed food are the main causes of increased obesity in both kids and adults.
