I've seen part of it, for the purpose of critique. And from what I've seen so far, this review is fairly accurate: Not enough focus on the food industry; way too much body-shaming in the name of "concern."

Also, I couldn't help but roll my eyes at the claim that BMI was about "body fat percentage."

...HBO is the channel for "Game of Thrones," which has a number of well-fed characters, though the series, now in its second season, has not yet presented the fattest character in the original novels, Lord Manderley, who is described in one book as needing a special double-wide chair but by a later novel needs one three times wider than usual.
It's also sexist as hell.

I also know that generally anyone watching this series, won't look up or know that the government changed bmi guidelines. In 1998 they say over 25 million americans classified as normal weight and not at risk became overweight when the government lowered bmi guidelines.
