Fed Up: The Movie The Food Industry Doesn't Want You to See

Have you guys seen the documentary Fed Up yet? I saw it a few weeks ago, loved it, and then watched it again this weekend with my parents. Afterwards, my parents and I had an hour-long discussion about the film, which I don't think has ever happened...!

If you haven't seen it yet, it's a must-see. It's entertaining, eye-opening, and will likely significantly change the way you think about food, shop for food, and eat. 

From various reporting and reading I've done over the years, I knew a lot of the facts in the movie already (fat's not the problem, sugar is; processed food is bad; low-fat isn't better for you; eat more real food, etc), but they presented them in a very clear, easy-to-understand way that I loved. Plus, I still learned a ton. For example, I had no idea just how complicit the government is in the obesity problem or just how powerful the sugar and processed food industries are--and it's all pretty scary. 

I've included the trailer below for you to watch, if you'd like--and I definitely recommend seeing the movie if you haven't already. (And, by the way, this post is not sponsored in any way, shape, or form. I just think the movie is something people need to see!)

Have you seen Fed Up yet? What did you think? I'd love to discuss below!
