What fuels Americans obsession with weight? Our collective waistline is expanding faster than ever and dieting is a national obsession. But is our fixation on diet and exercise born purely from a look in the mirror, a desire to get healthier, or are there more insidious forces at work?
Following up on his successfully distributed grassroots documentary film, America the Beautiful, award- winning documentary filmmaker Darryl Roberts now turns his attention to our quest for thinness in America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments.
The subtitle of the film, The Thin Commandments came from a chapter in Carolyn’s book, “Your Dieting Daughter”. Carolyn speaks out in the documentary about the dangers and damages of dieting, of how a diet can lead to a disorder and of the serious consequences that can result.
