‘The Game Changers’ Inspires ‘This Morning’ Crew Members To Go Plant-Based

Multiple members of the TV crew behind breakfast show This Morning are trying a vegan diet – thanks to The Game Changers.

The sports documentary, which is available to watch on Netflix, is directed by Oscar-winner Louie Psihoyos and executive produced by Oscar-winner James Cameron.

James Wilks, who produced and starred in the film, appeared on the morning show in a segment titled ‘Could going vegan transform your health’?

‘Turned vegan’

“Some of our team have watched the documentary and turned vegan,” Schofield revealed. “But you don’t like the term ‘vegan’, it’s ‘plant-based’, right? A plant-based diet?”

Wilks replied that the terms vegan and vegetarian don’t say what a person is eating, only what they aren’t eating.

“The most important thing from the research our team has seen, and also recognized by the world’s leading health authorities – the World Health Organization, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics – are all saying we should be eating predominantly plants,” he added.

Ditching animal products

A number of people have opted to ditch animal products after watching the documentary – among them is Greggs CEO Roger Whiteside, who recently revealed he was inspired to try a plant-based diet on health grounds.

He said: “I was encouraged to watch a film on Netflix called The Gamechangers – I watched it and thought this is interesting. Obviously there are arguments based around animal welfare and the environment, but this was all about the health benefits, and I thought I should give it a go.

“Avoiding meat is easy. The problem is avoiding dairy, avoiding milk and cheese is almost impossible. It would be okay if I had time to cook, but I don’t, so I have to have things that are quick and easy.”
