What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this documentary, which looks at America's obsession with dieting and thinness, examines how the medical establishment, government agencies, and the diet industry promote unrealistic ideas about obesity, as well as the relationship between weight and health. There's less strong language than in the first movie, but you will see images of women in skimpy clothing and hear references to sexual problems. Commercial logos and products are prominent, but they're appropriate within the film's context. Sensitive viewers may find the brief scenes of surgical procedures and discussions about the death of a newborn and bullying a little boy disturbing. Parents, this is a good movie to watch alongside your teen; check out some of our tips about how to talk to them about the issues the movie deals with.
