No empty calories here: Middletown Township Public Library is the setting for a free Wednesday night screening of HUNGRY FOR CHANGE, the doc feature that aims to blow the pop-top off the mega-billion dollar diet industry.
It’s the documentary that THEY didn’t want you to see; the one the industry just HATES — and for just this once, those claims might not be so much sour persimmons. Released in 2012, Hungry For Change takes a produce-squeezing hard look at the food, diet products and weight-loss industries — a veritable Axis of Eatville consuming billions of dollars in the service of a body-image ideal that’s downright unnatural for the majority of humans. Packed with “interviews with best selling health authors and leading medical experts, plus real life transformational stories with those who know what it’s like to be sick and overweight,” the advocacy documentary film by James Colquhon and Laurentine ten Bosch screens Wednesday evening at Middletown Township Public Library, in a 7 pm event that’s free of charge, to the public at large.
The screening — for which advance registration online or by phone is recommended — will be followed by a discussion with Q&A featuring the locally based holistic health coach and nutritionist Alicia Somma.
