Unsupersize Us is the follow-up to the award-winning documentary Unsupersize Me.
In this second installment, Director Juan-Carlos Asse takes five subjects from his hometown of Gainesville, Florida —all of whom suffer from common health issues—and puts them on regimen of a “whole-food, plant-based” diet and exercise for six weeks. The results are impressive as the cohort showed remarkable improvements over the month-and-a-half period. While Asse tests the group with innovative physical challenges throughout the film, cooking skills, as well as how to eat healthy both at home and on the go, and how to establish and maintain mental fortitude are also showcased. An interesting twist occurs when Asse reveals his own trials and tribulations including a seven-year federal prison sentence... leading him to true freedom.
