Storyline

Vegucated is a guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks and learn what it's all about. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the planet's fate may fall on their plates. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. Before long, they find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before. But can their convictions carry them through when times get tough? What about on family vacations fraught with skeptical step-dads, carnivorous cousins, and breakfast buffets? Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who are trying their darnedest to change in a culture that seems dead set against it. Written by Marisa Miller Wolfson

Very informative and powerful
28 May 2013 | by greendayrox706See all my reviews

Unlike many other films I have seen that bash the meat/dairy industry, Vegucated seeks to inform the watcher instead of trying to shock the person or make them cry. Any film can create a "shock" factor, but Vegucated did an amazing job of telling the facts: why eating a plant- based diet is healthier and what exactly goes on at meat & dairy farms. The film takes 3 regular people in New York City who are willing to become Vegan, and they are informed about the benefits of a plant-based diet and are taught about what happens at dairy and meat farms. I showed this film to my friends and family, and while they still eat meat, they were very interested in hearing the information that Vegucated told, and they thought twice before eating their next steak. Personally, I was very affected by this film and I quit eating meat cold turkey and cut back on dairy. I have already lost 15 pounds in 2 months from doing nothing besides this, and my cholesterol levels have dropped significantly. I highly recommend this film to anyone who either wants to become Vegetarian/Vegan, or anyone who is interested in nutrition, the meat and dairy industries, and the FDA.
