    • Excerpt: Using colorfully memorable infographics, director Stephanie Soechtig offers viewers a primer on the way our bodies process sugar, the pleasurable addictive effect it has on our brains, and how difficult it is to counteract its effect once these addictive qualities take hold.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: This movie imagines it is telling you this information for the first time, and it’s very proud of itself for the perceived ingenuity of its message.

    • Excerpt: If Fed Up and its display of tragic tykes, lax food regulations, diseases, distrust and ill-advised food consumption is a tough pill to swallow then think of this poignant and noteworthy narrative as a yummy powdered doughnut…maybe then the dire fodder as expressed in Soechtig’s contemplative documentary will agree with your guilty pleasure-seeking taste buds.

    • Excerpt: It may be over-stating it to say that you should go see Fed Up, because it just might save your life. But I’m saying it.
