Self-promoting physicians, shrinks, bureaucrats, and fashion models blather on about eating issues, yet Roberts glosses over the only real solution to weight gain: balanced nutrition combined with exercise.

No doubt, we the people are due for some lifestyle changes, but the film glosses some of the trickier obstacles to better health.

Roberts makes a sincere humanitarian, but he's a lousy journalist.

The look of the film reflects a miniscule budget, but it gets points for modesty and a keen sense of humor.
