Americans take health, image and fitness seriously. We track the weights of celebrities more closely than international events. We pride ourselves on being at the forefront of medical and scientific discovery. We make role models and idols of our sports heroes. And we spend over $80 billion (that's with a “B”) a year on diets, gym memberships and exercise equipment to keep ourselves looking and feeling our best.
All of which begs one question—WHY ARE WE SO FAT?
Crew in tow, filmmaker Barry Roskin Blake travels the country to hunt down the answers to America's heaviest issues from leading experts and researchers. A warped take on the hysteria of America's “obesity epidemic”, "Finding Thin" examines the causes and effects of America's weight obsession from both sides of the line between fat and thin.
