Watch "Fed Up" at Osio Cinemas in Monterey

This film asserts that everything we’ve been told about food and exercise for the past 30 years is dead wrong. FED UP is the film the food industry doesn’t want you to see. From Katie Couric, Laurie David (Oscar winning producer of AN INCONVENIENT TRUTH) and director Stephanie Soechtig, FED UP promises to change the way you eat forever. The film opens in theaters across the country on May 9th. It's in Monterey on May 16. Time posted is subject to change, as Osio has not yet published the details. For more info and trailer, see:

    The movie was very worthwhile but I didn't find any other VegHeads present at the theatre.

    The documentary was well worth seeing! I went with three others, including my teenage daughter, and everyone was glad they went. The information was easy to assimilate, and they did a good job describing that all calories are not treated equally by our bodies. We grabbed sandwiches at Ike's before the film, and we were blown away by the many excellent veggie options!

    The Osio just posted their movie times and Fed-up will be showing tonight, May 23, at 7:20pm. (Sorry, I'm unable to update the meetup time, so I hope you all see this post.)

    The film trailer seems heavily focused on the dangers of sugar in the diet, with Dr. Robert Lustig, noted anti-sugar crusader being highlighted. I don't think vegan Drs. McDougall, Klaper, Ornish, Fuhrman, et al would agree that sugar is the main problem. They would maintain, rightfully so in my opinion, that the epidemic of obesity and Type II diabetes, for instance, is more closely tied to diets high in animal fat intake. Sugar intake does not cause diabetes, but rather the high animal fat American diet inhibits the healthy function of the pancreas related to insulin production and sugar absorption. Has anyone seen more than Fed Up's brief trailer?

      You're right, Bob. It does seem to focus on refined sugars and processed foods, as well as the food industry's marketing tactics toward children and the government's lack of incentive (or political will) to truly address the concerns. I'm bringing my daughter to reenforce the habits we already have, which include a vegan lifestyle and exercising. (I'm also prepared for the film to challenge some of our practices and perspectives, but we're used to that!) For more info, here's a review I googled... http://www.indiewire....­

      There are some interesting things going on in the food industry that give me a measure of hope. Have you seen Josh Tetrick's TED Talk? His company is creating alternatives to eggs (and is funded in part by the Gates Foundation). This article links to it. Take a look... http://vegnews.com/ar...­
