Is a Plant-Based Diet the Way Forward?

Updated: Jan 31, 2020

So I know that the title might have already put you off, but give me a chance here. It’s a huge talking point at the moment and with all the experts weighing into the discussion I thought I’d offer up some insight too.

This question actually came from a client who was considering removing meat from their diet, but in all honesty, it’s something I’ve been wanting to write about for a while.

I guess I really should start by saying that if you haven’t heard about the documentary called “The Game Changers” you really should consider giving it a watch.

It is the much anticipated feature-length produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan, Lewis Hamilton, Novak Djokovic and Chris Paul (which is a pretty impressive list), all about the effects of eating a plant-based diet.

Before I even begin to discuss any of its arguments, I will admit that this information source has been widely called into question due to Cameron’s side business, which happens to be vegan protein supplements. However, ulterior motives or not, there’s some pretty undeniable science presented to you throughout.

Without just quoting the whole documentary back to you, Game Changers basically preaches that Veganism is the way to go for health and performance benefits within your own body, as well as briefly touching on the environmental impact as well.
