Ending the debate on The Game Changers
When an ex pro MMA fighter, world-record holding athletes, National champions, professional bodybuilders, and a multitude of other athletes all promote a plant-based diet for optimal performance… it’s naturally going to turn heads, right?
Let’s be honest, these athletes are the healthiest and fittest humans on Earth, so we’re going to want to know their secrets to success.
We’ve got to hand it to James Cameron and the rest of The Game Changers Team, they’ve marketed Veganism from a very strong angle. We’re not surprised that it’s gone so viral.
But in the midst of this veggie frenzy and everyone’s polarising opinions, we’re here to share our thoughts with you.
Not only is the documentary is polarising, but many experts have critiqued it too.
Yes, there is information in the film that we don’t agree with, but we’d like to discuss its overlapping message…
A message of health.
A vegan diet is not a ‘better’ diet.
It’s a different diet.
If you choose to go purely plant-based, be smart!
Although the documentary’s main focus is on performance, the reason it has come about is the idea that cutting out meat will save our planet. Unfortunately, we’re still feeding into the issue; mass production from both mono-crops and animals are bad for the environment.
You can eat Vegan, but be very conscious of your choices. If you’re doing it for the enrolment, then be doubly conscious; products such as soy, wheat and supermarket brought produce are mostly suboptimal for the environment.
What’s the answer?
Buy locally grown and farmed produce to support your local farmers.
Eating Vegan may work for some, but it certainly isn’t for everyone.
