RECENTLY WATCHED THE GAME CHANGERS AND CONSIDERING SWITCHING TO A PLANT-BASED DIET?
Read this first…
Firstly, I’m not going into detail unpicking or arguing for or against the content of the film.
This has already been done extensively and you can read about it online if this if it interests you.
Google something along the lines of…
“James Cameron / Game Changers producers investments in plant-based protein”
“Game Changers scientific review”
“Game Changers selective research bias”
You’ll find enough information to make your own decision on whether the film is an unbiased documentary sharing facts based on sound scientific research or a cleverly crafted piece of marketing designed to increase plant-based food product sales and make rich people richer.
THE MESSGAE I WANT TO GET ACROSS IS…
The Game Changers will usher in the latest fad diet, WHY? Because it is preaching a one-size-fits-all approach to diet and nutrition.
People are obsessed with finding THE ONE diet that will work for everyone which is like trying to find one shoe that will fit every foot on the planet.
When you take a minute to think about how different we are from each other. Genetics, age, environment, body shape, lifestyle, medical history, stress levels… it’s pretty ridiculous to think that it is possible to find a diet that is going to provide the nutrients needed for everyone to thrive at life.
Like all fad diets, tonnes of people will give it a go. It will work for some, it won’t work for everyone. And for everyone it doesn’t work for, another fad diet claiming to the THE ONE will pop up 12 months to dive into.
If you don’t want to fall into this trap, the solution is too try a diet and assess it’f effectiveness over a 8-12 week period. Take measurements, progress photos and write notes on your health before you start and repeat the process every 2-4 weeks.
You’ll soon learn if it works for you. It is does… great! Stick to it. If it doesn’t also great, you’ve learnt something and can now retry the same process on another diet.
Yes it takes some work, but you can spend your time jumping from diet to diet never learning anything and never getting the results you want OR you can start learning and make consistent progress towards the fitter, healthier version of yourself that you aspire for.
