BETTER Movie FAQ

Here are some BETTER Movie FAQs to help you enjoy this groundbreaking film.

What Is The Better Movie About?

The BETTER Movie is an empowering documentary and brainchild of Founder of Wellness Engineering and NY Times Bestselling author Jonathan Bailor.

When he was a child, Jonathan experienced a childhood tragedy that set him on the path of finding a better way to eat, think, and live that prevents or reverses symptoms of diabetes and obesity (Diabesity). And what he found stunned him and turned dieting on its head. Namely, calorie restriction doesn’t work to prevent diabesity and can actually have the opposite effect.

Investigating holistic approaches that integrate the body, mind and emotional systems, the BETTER© Movie offers a more effective path to weight control and health.
