We all knows it’s not easy to lose weight. Coming to NPT-Channel 8 on Wednesday, April 11 at 8:00 p.m. CDT is FAT: WHAT NO ONE IS TELLING YOU, a special that explores the intense human dramas that rage inside people who have been labeled obese and hard their weight problem is to solve. The last 30 minutes of the two-hour show will also offer practical advice for confronting the challenge.
It’s an important show, and national media and organizations are joining in on the dialogue. USA Today will feature an op-ed piece about the production. The Today Show will also feature the show next week. Meredith Vieira, the documentary’s narrator, and Dr. Nancy Snyderman, host of the follow-up show Take One Step for Your Family’s Health and a key person from the documentary, will use the show’s forum to discuss the film’s goal of changing the national conversation about obesity. Rather than stigmatizing and blaming obese people, FAT shows the real weight loss barriers Americans face, and what we can do on both personal and community levels to prevent this national epidemic in future generations. We’re certain that FAT will serve as a catalyst for community conversation here in Nashville and throughout the nation. Be sure to tune in.
