“I told you I’d be back” he once said – and he most definitely is. Arnold Schwarzenneger has teamed up along other famous names, Oscar-winning director Louie Psihoyos and soon-to-be-Kiwi movie producer James Cameron for the next vegan blockbuster documentary. Not to mention world sports stars Jackie Chan, Novak Djokovic and Lewis Hamilton on co-production. Yep, you heard that right. The trailer is out and running and so are the myths around eating meat for protein, strength and a long-lasting life. The film sets out to put the vegan athlete firmly on the map.
The film which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2018 is about elite athletes and body builders who have switched to a plant-based diet.
Vegans and budding sportsmen and women alike will be able to see the new documentary film which launches on over a thousand screens around the globe on 16th September 2019. And for rapacious readers out there, the people behind the documentary have the same ambition as James Wilks. He is the same athlete that set out on a mission to discover the best diet for optimal recovery after his 6-month long injury. The former Mixed Martial Arts fighter travelled around four continents meeting elite athletes and in so doing conquered the dogma about having to eat meat to be strong, fast and fit.
“The whole protein myth is complete nonsense. Plant-based foods have plenty,” stated James after improving his endurance in his return from injury.
The former bodybuilding legend himself has even debunked his own preconceptions on social media that eating meat to be a man is just a marketing scheme. Talk about change, especially from someone who used to live on meat in his weight lifting days.
For the sake of performance, health, longevity and feeling better about yourself and the planet, The Game Changers aims to sway carnivores to the notion that the plant-based lifestyle is the way to go. To these gurus, the evergreen path is not only healthy and environmentally friendly but also the way to fine-tune an athlete. And this stems from the experience of elite athletes – to say nothing of strong herbivore animals like the Ox, as pointed out in the documentary.
James Wilks sets out the facts after studying the nutrition and science behind faster recovery time. James Cameron believes it. The iconic film director of Avatar and Titanic trusts in a completely-free meat society in just twenty years. Blood-relishing carnivores might already be saying “What the Health”? Five-times Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton is on the same wavelength after transforming his diet after watching the groundbreaking documentary.
Hamilton wishes he’d gone vegan sooner
Hamilton told his many fans on Instagram: “People say ‘oh I need my protein and that’s why I could never go vegan. I have plenty of protein in my diet and I’ve gained muscle, and I’m healthier and happier than I’ve ever been. Wish I did it sooner.”
The filmmakers encourage you to “forget everything you thought you knew about protein, strength, and performance”. According to them “this is going to wake a lot of people up” with its groundbreaking science.
When you sit down to enjoy the film at a cinema near you, please try to enjoy it with a butter-free bucket of popcorn – with an added hint of purity!
