The Game Changers

90 mins


James Wilks, an elite special-forces trainer and winner of The Ultimate Fighter, always followed a fairly traditional nutritional strength-training regimen. But when an injury sidelines him, he sets out on a mission to find the best diet for recovering athletes. And what the science reveals comes as a shock: plant-based is better. The Game Changers, the newest feature by Oscar-winning director Louie Psihoyos, follows Wilks on a faced-paced food journey around the globe, where he meets top-shelf endurance athletes, body builders, scientists and doctors who one by one help Wilks debunk the notion that meat is necessary for protein, strength and optimal health. In the end, Wilks’ relationship with food — and perception of true strength — are forever transformed.
