2005 PG

This candid documentary chronicles the efforts of overweight "regular Joe" Miles A. Forman to shed, once and for all, the extra 50 pounds that have burdened him for years. As Forman struggles to lose his excess baggage, he discovers -- and exposes -- the ugly underbelly of the profit-motivated weight-loss industry, along with the misconceptions that many Americans still hold about dieting and obesity.
