By: Nikki Nies

The Weight of the Nation is a documentary created and produced by HBO.  This 4 part miniseries brings together health professionals, policy makers, researchers and partners that advocates of obesity strategies and solutions.
Although long, this documentary gives a good explanation of how we’ve gotten where we are now–with 2/3 of adults overweight.  The scary part, more and more children, America’s future, are overweight.
