Robert Jackson Jr. KHS 5523 1/23/13 Blackboard Assignment #1 In the series of videos, FAT: What No One is Telling You , the audience got to learn about the experiences of obesity from various perspectives. The problems highlighted came from those who are currently suffering from obesity to those who once were obese and are in better shape currently, and even to people who treat obesity. The obesity epidemic is steadily growing as the time goes on. The documentary series tries to examine the various factors of the epidemic and tries to offer a few possible solutions. The most important piece of information to note is that obesity is a multifaceted issue that can’t be treated in just one single way. The series, FAT: What No One is Telling You, was an eleven part series that began with the back story of a very obese teen. The cameras followed the boy around to experience what daily life was like for an obese teen. In the video the teen discovered a possible treatment for his problem in the form of surgical treatment. This procedure is only performed in dire need situations in which the individuals are very obese, and in the case of the teen that had a BMI of about 70 (a severe obese BMI is 35 or greater). The teen stated how he had problems trying to lose weight the typical way of going to the gym and dieting, but did recognize the error in his ways as far as his bad habits that contributed to weight gain. The next part of the documentary followed a comedian who was once morbidly obese. She discussed how her life was when she was obese and how her life is currently. She stated that she worked out an average of about 3 hours a day to lose the weight and still continues to exercise about the same amount to stay in the shape that she is. In the video, she stated that she hated the way that she looked when she was obese and that she made fun of herself as a

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
