Video clip transcript from the documentary Fed Up. Mins. 18.01 - 22.36

  1. 1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y647tNm8nTI
  2. 2. Gary Taubes, Author of Why We get Fat and What to Do About It. If you’re peddling Coca-cola, Pepsi, sugar water, Gatorade… you don’t want your food to be considered inherently fattening just as the tobacco industry would have preferred that their product not been considered inherently capable of causing cancer. But just like cigarettes literally cause lung cancer, certain foods literally make you fat.
  3. 3. Mother: What did you have for lunch? Let’s tell the truth. Wesley: Umm, hamburger, fries milk and juice. Mother: Milk and Juice? Wesley: They give them both. If you ever go on a diet and you try to eat healthier food, your brain is still telling you, eat, eat, eat……. It’s not what I want… no, get something else. You’re still use to that fattening stuff. That’s why it’s hard to go on a diet. Mother: You ain’t got but a few more to go …. At this time of night you ain’t (can’t eat) that many. Wesley: Gotta savor the flavor. Mother: You gotta savor the flavor, you gotta savor the flavor cause you only got so many chips.
  4. 4. Wesley (selfie): I’m trying to lose weight… My weight is pretty heavy, 180(pounds / 82 kilos), I’m a pretty heavy dude. That’s why I’m trying to get some A size in and eat some healthy food every day. Mother: We, ahh, started eating different things, more fruits and vegetables. We limit are starches, we limit our breads, we keep healthier snacks. We, ahh, he loves hot pockets, so they have lean hot pockets, so I make sure to have the lean ones versus the regular ones. It cost more to eat healthier. So we slip… I’m not going to say we don’t, because it’s easier to by the cereals with sugar in it, it’s easier to buy chips because it’s cheaper.
  5. 5. M.D. Mark Hyman And that’s what the food industry wants them to think… It’s cheaper. Commercial: Woman/mother: KFC Family Feast: 9 pieces, any recipe, 3 large sides, six biscuits, $19.99. Do not give up on dinner. Mmmmmm M.D. Mark Hyman You deserve a break to day. You can get a value meal. These are messages that have kinda gotten embedded into our culture into their thinking but there is well documented, scientific proof that you can eat well for less and they don’t know that.
  6. 6. Dr.’s office: Wesley’s Family Physician: How is the diet control going? Mother: The diet control for him is gettin, is better. At first it was rocky but it’s a lot better. Wesley’s Family Physician: I’m happy to hear you think things are going so well but it is a bit concerning because when I look at Wesley he doesn’t look any thinner. In fact he looks even bigger than he did a few years ago. And what I see from the data is that he is continuing to gain weight even faster than the rate he was before. His weight it is even higher than it was last time. Wesley: I’ve eaten less than I usually have. I’ve exercised more and I don’t really know why I’m getting more weight. Wesley’s Family Physician: Mom, have you noticed his skin here is starting to get a little bit dark and a little bit thick? It is part of what we call Metabolic Syndrome. His body is already starting to show some of the adult signs of overweight and obesity.
  7. 7. Wesley: I worry about that I’m going to have a heart attack or seizure or something like that. I’ve seen these things on the news. I’ve seen that my family have had it too and I’m worried about myself might have it. Nurse: Relax your arm and your leg and take some deep breaths… and here we go…. M.D. Mark Hyman We’re seeing strokes in 8 year olds. We’re seeing heart attacks in 20 year olds. We’re seeing kids at thirty, by their 30th birthday needing renal dialysis for kidney failure because of these problems. Minute 22:36
  8. 8. Here are some questions and ideas to get you started before you add your own: Have a first read through (remove the title).  Ask where you think these people live and how old Wesley is and why.  Ask if the doctors and author are for, against or indifferent to the food industry and why.  Ask the students if fast food is cheaper or more expensive than healthy food and why.  Debate:  How is it possible that the mother does not know what her overweight, diabetic son eats at school?  How is the school permitted to let him eat exactly what the rest of the school population eats?  Where is the coordination between the school and the mother?  Why does the mother let her obese son continue to eat chips?  How is it possible the mother thinks her son’s diet is going well?  If you were Wesely’s mom, what would you do?  Who is responsible for Wesley’s obesity?
