Laurie David (pictured here with me) recently screened her latest documentary film Fed Up!. She and Katie Couric just recently completed it and screened it to some of us here in Atlanta. It opens nationwide this weekend, but is it worth your time and money? You bet it is! Even 51% of skinny people are OBESE!
