There are now over 160 million Americans that can be considered to be severely overweight, with a population of just over 329 million that means that one in every three Americans are affected. Never in all of its history has the country been so obese. In this film, we explore the increasingly aggressive treatments that are available and how a counter-trend of body positivity and ‘Miss Plus’ beauty pageants have immerged.
Regardless of the efforts made by the government to encourage weight loss and a healthy lifestyle the obesity rates just continue to climb. Even the last president Donald Trump was declared obese while still in office.
Faced with this incredible figure, healthcare professionals are now trying to discover new, more effective, and more aggressive treatments for this illness.
