I recently finished watching HBO’s excellent documentary series “The Weight of the Nation.” It pulls together experts in policy, medicine, community organizing, and more to outline the obesity crisis in the United States. It is an incredibly comprehensive, insightful, and entertaining look at obesity rates: how they got that way, what people are doing about it, and where we need to go from here. It’s split into 4 one-hour segments, so it’s easy to watch in pieces. The entire series is available for free on HBO’s website. I’ve included a teaser below. Happy viewing!
