Fed Up (2014) directed by Stephanie Soechtig
This documentary focused on the myth of “calorie in/calorie out” weight-loss. It highlighted the fact that what we eat is a crucial factor in maintaining health.
As the film website puts it:
Everything we’ve been told about food and exercise for the past 30 years is dead wrong. FED UP is the film the food industry doesn’t want you to see.

Sugar: The Bitter Truth (2017) with Dr. Robert Lustig
This is a university lecture, so not as eye-catching as some of the commercial documentaries above, but it is a fascinating, scientifically supported look at the dangers of having a high-sugar diet.
