The film Fed Up – which debuted in theaters across the country Friday – focuses on the food industry. According to the Hagstrom Report – Katie Couric – one of the producers of the film – is now asking people to visit the Fed Up website and join her challenge to avoid eating sugar-containing products and flour for 10-days in response to the Grocery Manufacturers Association’s website – Fed Up Facts – countering the film’s message about prepared foods. Couric says all products with added sugar and artificial sweeteners are included in this challenge. The film says artificial sweeteners alert the body that sugar is coming – even if it isn’t – and suggests people cut out all flour products that turn to sugar in the body.
