I'm babysitting my parents cat at the moment and have been watching a lot of really good and informative documentaries on Netflix. Perhaps you've seen them or heard of them. Feel free to add your own to the mix.

Hungry for Change, 2012, NR, 1hr29 - This documentary exposes shocking secrets the diet, weight loss and food industries use to keep consumers coming back for more.

Farmageddon, 2011, NR, 1h 25m - This provocative documentary tells the story of farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities but were forced to stop.

Vegetated, 2010, NR, 1h16min - This documentary follows three meat and cheese loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks in an effort to get healthier

Food Matters, 2008, NR, 1h 17m - This film takes a timely and hard-hitting look at how the food we eat is helping or hurting our health, and what we can do to live (and eat) better.

Food, Inc. 2008, PH, 1hr 34m - Director Robert Kenner's provocative oscar-nominated documentary looks at the food industry's harmful effects on human health and the environment.

Super Size Me, 2004, PG, 1h40min - Director Morgan Spurlock takes a hilarious and often terrifying look at the effects of fast food on the human body, using himself as a guinea pig.

Feel free to add any other documentaries or youtube videos on nutrition or anything health related. :)

Fat, sick, and Nearly Dead

It's about juicing mostly but really talks about what food choices do to our bodies -- not just the weight.
