Why Everyone Needs to Watch Game Changers on Netflix

While I’d heard about the documentary Game Changers last semester, I could never really bring myself to watch more than five minutes of it because I was never really an avid documentary-watcher. I also found the first few minutes of this one to be rather dry. However, after the buzz around Game Changers persisted and many of my close family members strongly recommended it to me, I decided to give it another shot a few weeks ago.

Even though I was aware that it was about food, I had expected it to be like one of the many eye-opening documentaries about the meat industry, but it was actually two hours of information about the major health benefits and misconceptions of veganism and I honestly can’t recommend this to everyone enough — especially if you’re all about clean eating and healthy living. With veganism being the new fad worldwide, I’d heard a lot of talk about it being “insufficient in nutrients” and — being a non-believer of diet culture — for the most part, I actually believed that to be true, as I’m sure most of you do too!

Well, I got news for you, girl! According to this documentary, a vegan diet is actually scientifically proven to have all the essential nutrients and is proven to be better for your health in the long run. In fact, what really blew my mind was that switching to a vegan diet (when followed strictly, of course) could control and potentially even reverse any heart disease! What’s more? Turns out, our bodies were not biologically meant to digest animal products — dairy or meat.

Don’t get me wrong, I still love my pint of ice-cream once in a while, but I’m definitely trying to be better about it because a happy inside is a happy outside!
