Starcast

  1. The Game Changers owes much of its name and fame to the â € stars castâ € ™. Many big names from the sports world joined the project. Perhaps the biggest name of all is Lewis Hamilton, the now six-time world champion in Formula 1. Anyone expecting a major role from the flamboyant racing driver will be disappointed. Hamilton is only on screen for ten seconds, but that is perhaps the strength of this documentary, which only shows fragments of famous athletes. Instead of those big names, we mainly follow the process of less well-known athletes. The protagonist is James Wilks, a martial artist who finds out that a large group of top athletes perform well on a plant-based diet. After a serious injury, Wilks switches to a vegan diet and is inspired by other athletes, scientists and stories.

The positive impact of plant-based food

  1. The emphasis in The Game Changers is on the image of eating meat and how many athletes perform through a plant-based diet, where that group was previously associated with mainly animal proteins. In fact, these athletes have long contributed to the message that you need to eat meat to be strong. Excerpts from a press conference by Irish cage fighter Connor McGregor, who pokes fun at his vegetarian opponent, are an example. When that same McGregor is defeated by his vegetable rival, it makes even the stubborn Irishman think. What the documentary demonstrates, in a very gentle way, is how the impact of animal proteins differs from vegetable proteins and how we as humans can benefit from it. The most obvious example is when three football players have their blood tested and see for themselves how much more fat is in their blood right after eating a burrito with meat compared to a burrito with beans. This fat limits the blood flow and thus affects the performance level, while vegetable proteins have the opposite effect. Another interesting study is the erection of men after a plant-based meal versus eating meat. Three athletes are again subjected to the test. And this shows that the nocturnal erection is harder in all three cases and occurs four to five times more often. Maybe not always handy, but take advantage of it.

Doubts

  1. The fact that the documentary mainly focuses on athletes is something to consider. How is the impact on people like you and me? There are actually few examples of this in the film. A successful project is being followed in which firefighters from Brooklyn can lower their cholesterol levels through a plant-based diet. After all, heart attacks would be the biggest cause of the death of the firefighters. Another criticism of the documentary is that the scientific basis can be quickly undermined. As with any idealistically designed project, there are opponents to be found who come up with scientific evidence to the contrary. The opponents do have a point: the study of the athletes' nocturnal erections is just a practical example. The fact that no large-scale scientific research has been done is therefore mentioned in the documentary. Whether you should be concerned about the evidence to the contrary? I would especially let the examples from the documentary speak for themselves. Various superhuman achievements are featured, including that of one of the strongest men in the world. And no animal products are involved.

Renewed well-known message Although the message that animal proteins can have a negative effect on our body is not new information, just like the fact that humans are actually a herbivore, this documentary distinguishes itself by the way the message is conveyed. Instead of focusing on animal suffering, this documentary is much more based on what a plant-based diet can provide you personally. In my opinion, this documentary uses a very effective method to change people's thoughts: it shows what someone actually gets by with it. Whether you let yourself be convinced or inspired is entirely up to you, but The Game Changers is an eye-opener even for the most convinced omnivore. The documentary The Game Changers can be seen on Netflix. Watch the trailer here: Also read This makes eating plant-based a lot easier Vegetarian, vegan or flexitarian? Don't miss anything anymore?
