Healthy Movies

We are starting week 8 of our Biggest Loser weight loss challenge and I think it may be time for a movie!

When I find myself straying from my diet and wanting to drive thru McDonalds or grab a bag of chips and a cupcake, I know it is time to get back to what I call my healthy mind play list on Netflix.  I have the following three movies in my list at all times just ready to hit play.  So, what I would like you to do this week is watch one or all of them and report back to us right here on the blog!

  1. Food Inc.
  2. Forks Over Knives
  3. Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead
