A business documentary exploring our nation's physical trends and fiscal repercussions. With devastating statistics attributing the obesity epidemic to $147B in health care costs - those figures don't even tap into the $60B weight loss industry that yearns to 'help' rid us of said fluffiness, on our own.
In the hour-long special, reporter Scott Wapner highlights childhood obesity, workforce wellness programming, the wave of bariatric surgery interest, and diet pharmaceutical markets. Focus is also placed at the infamous 'Biggest Loser' ranch, and the brand's multi-million dollar revenue stream. ~PC
