Description

Executive produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan, The Game Changers follows James Wilks — elite Special Forces trainer and winner of The Ultimate Fighter — whose world is turned upside down when he discovers a group of world-renowned athletes and scientists who prove that everything he had been taught about protein was a lie. Directed by Oscar®-winner Louie Psihoyos, The Game Changers mixes real-time, groundbreaking science with cinematic stories of struggle and triumph. The film features some of the strongest, fastest and toughest athletes on the planet — and it’s backed by them too — with additional EPs including Lewis Hamilton, Novak Djokovic, and Chris Paul. Wilks’ journey exposes outdated myths about food that not only affect human performance, but the health of the entire global population.

  • Refreshing Evidence-Based Look at Nutrition and Health

    I found this documentary refreshing and informative. I find it interesting how the same strategy of obfuscation and misinformation that the tobacco industry employed during the 1960’s is being used by the meat and dairy lobby to mislead the public about the detrimental effects of animal products on human and environmental health. Game Changers presents an inspiring, grounded, and eye-opening look at the transformative possibilities of a plant-based diet for optimizing human well-being and performance.

    "By far, this is the best documentary on the power of a plant-based diet and how it can potentiate enormous strength and a disease-free lifestyle! It showcases superb athletes at the top of their game and demonstrates how plants should be our go-to for strong sexual stamina and overall wellbeing. Watch it and you'll be inspired."

    It is funny to read the negative reviews that accuse this documentary of engaging in propaganda, when in fact it is the negative commenters who themselves are the victims of pro-meat, egg and dairy propaganda (which the documentary takes time to demonstrate, ie, the fact that the animal food industry has employed the shady PR tactics of the tobacco industry, for instance).
  • Very educational and eye opening

  • Propaganda

    Not based in fact. Several people had to be removed from the movie because they changed their diet back to eating meat for health reasons. This is pure propaganda.

    ...."Men's Health Mag review was hog wash. "it does quote two sources, including “Mike Roussell, Ph.D., author of The MetaShred Diet”. Ironically, but perhaps not surprisingly, Roussell is a paid spokesperson for the beef industry (11). I assume the author of the article was not aware of this connection." I went vegan/plant based and just from food alone, I dropped 107 pounds in 13 months. Fact. Both my GP and Renal Specialists told me my blood work is great and my kindneys are perfectly normal and will be fine living with PKD. My blood pressure dropped from 150/100 with a 100 bpm...to now 109/77 with a 79 bpm. My cholesterol went from 202 to 140. I already witnessed this change personally and really didnt need to see addtional documentaries. But, I wanted to see the additional input from athletes that perform at a high level. Great presentation and science based facts. Great documentary. Must see if you are curious on making a lifestyle change.
  • Great Movie!
