Storyline

The Game Changers is a new film executive produced by James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan that documents the explosive rise of plant-based eating in professional sports, mixing real-time, groundbreaking science with cinematic stories of struggle and triumph. The film features some of the strongest, fastest and toughest athletes on the planet - and it's backed by them too - with additional EPs including Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton, top-ranked tennis player Novak Djokovic, and nine-time NBA All-Star Chris Paul. Directed by Oscar®-winner Louie Psihoyos, The Game Changers follows the story of James Wilks - elite Special Forces trainer and winner of The Ultimate Fighter - as he travels the world on a quest for the truth about meat, protein, and strength. Showcasing elite athletes, special ops soldiers, and visionary scientists. Wilks' journey exposes outdated myths about food that not only affect human performance, but the health of the entire global population.

Trivia

Swami Sri Yukteswar's book, "The Holy Science," which was published back in 1894, devotes Sutras 9-11 in explaining scientifically why vegetarian diet is far more efficient than a meat-based one. He provides comparisons between the digestive systems of herbivores and carnivores, explaining and proving how the human system is like those of herbivores and not carnivores. The information from this documentary film reiterates scientific principles that were presented 125 years ago. See more »
