Now Playing Synopsis: Filmmaker Darryl Roberts (The Perfect Model) follows up his 2008 documentary America the Beautiful with this thought-provoking sequel exploring the prospect that being overweight and healthy are not mutually exclusive. Though eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia have traditionally been viewed as women's issues, men are increasingly succumbing to the pressure to be fit and trim as well thanks to magazine models sporting six-pack abs and perfectly sculpted muscles. Could it be that the people we trust most when it comes to health issues - namely doctors, the government and educators - are exacerbating our insecurities about body image instead of giving us a realistic image of what it means to healthy for each individual? And is the BMI scale truly a reliable way to determine what our proper weight should be? Join Roberts as he explores the desperate measures that men and women take in their attempts to maintain a healthy weight, and asks whether it's really all worth it, or just a massive scheme to profit from the unrealistic expectations hoisted upon us by the youth-obsessed beauty industry. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Darryl Roberts, Deepak Chopra, Christian Lander, Evelyn Tribole, Howard Shapiro, Linda Bacon, Kathleen Sebilius, Timothy Dolan, Paul Campos, John Robinson, David Satcher, Carolyn Costin, Bill Clinton, Johnny Cooper, Hatice Yarvuz, Shana Marie, Mehmet Ak, Chan Hartman, Alex Strauss, Barry Norman, Maria Rago, Judith Stern, Tom Hosler, Dale Fortner, Kevin Coughlin, Mary Shedd, Larry Hobson, William Cooper, Mickie Schlimgen, Joy Nash, Ragen Chastain, Greg Critser, Michele Gerren, Michelle Obama, Al Gore, Anansa Sims, Beverly Johnson, Candi Dias, Phyllis Klein, Jen Shroyer, Christy Magnani, Madison Shroyer, Bruce Magnani, Tom Smith Movie Details Play Trailer Movie Review
