Synopsis

In an instant, 29 million Americans became fat, out of shape and dangerously obese and they did it without taking a single bite of food. It was all the result of a decision to change the national standard for obesity. The question is "What was behind a ruling to declare so many people to be fat? Was it political, financial or for the good of humankind?" You'll find out that diet companies have raked in huge profits because of the new standards - guidelines the weight loss industry helped structure.
