The Game Changers: who's seen it and what did you think of it?

Hi Vegans and Veg's


I liked the film and say it is well worth a look. I actually liked the sensationalist way it was presented. It had that 'wild vegan' thing goin' on but not in the usual way. I mean it was bulldust in implying that vegan diets are better for athletic performance than veg or omni diets, and I don't think that should be implied in proper documentary, but this seemed more like an advocacy piece, and it did do a good job of asserting a vegan diet is NOT inferior.

Really just bumping up the thread as I'm surprised if people didn't watch The Game Changers, which provides evidence for optimal athletic performance on a plant based diet. I can't say the film makes substantial arguments, and I have heard some rebuttals of the film's claims, including some made by plant based dietitians, so I'm not saying the film is the truth wrapped in gold, and of course it's bias loaded and really amounts to 'celebrity veganism' in the end, but it's not a bad watch at all.

I watched and I flipped to not eating meat the next day, and feeling better for it.
Foiund ive been eating food that is so much more enjoyable.

I’ve watched a few of the debunking videos too and personally I thought they missed the point of the film, and are more interested in proving they are ‘right’

Make the choice that you think is right for you.

Well, the Game Changers was not a scientific film. It was an advocacy piece, but at least it pointed out that you can achieve high performance on a vegan diet. However be it vegan or omnivore, the body needs the nutrients it needs...


Let's make informed decisions based on our biological nutrient requirements.
