Enrichment experience: Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead - Free Documentary Screening + DiscussionExport this event to calendar

Thursday, May 28, 2015 — 3:00 PM to 5:30 PM EDT

Enrich your learning experience by attending an event or activity at the University of Waterloo! Enrichment experiences are great opportunity to engage with the wider university community. It is also a fantastic way to practice your listening and speaking skills in English.

You are invited to attend a FREE screening of the documentary Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead!

This documentary centres on Joe Cross, an Australian man who is 100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease. The film chronicles Joe's personal mission to regain his health. This mission leads him on a cross-country road trip with only a juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days.

This film manages to be light-hearted, educational, uplifting, and humorous. It has been a favourite at many international film festivals.

There will be a group discussion following the film, which will include topics on fad diets, the role of lifestyle choices in obesity, and the weight loss food/supplement industry.

Snacks will be provided. See you there!
