Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Raised in a dysfunctional household that resulted in a life of self-loathing and overeating, Miles Forman receives the sobering news that he may be overweight for the rest of his life, and resolves to take control of his life by shedding his excess weight and living a more healthy lifestyle. As Forman enlists the aid of famed fitness guru Mike Manno, filmmaker Michael Landsberg follows along to explore the empty promises of fad diets, and the startling truth about the $40 billion a year diet industry. In the process, Forman's unwavering resolution and self-effacing sense of humor shows precisely what's possible with a little inspiration and some serious determination.
