Highly anticipated documentary The Game Changers made its cinematic debut on September 16, and is now available to pre-order digitally.

As well as a line-up of elite athletes, the film also features interviews with over fifteen renowned medical doctors, including two team members from Australasia’s new non-profit organization Doctors For Nutrition.

The Game Changers, which is currently ranked as the number one bestseller on iTunes pre-order, ‘documents the explosive rise of plant-based eating in professional sports, mixing real-time, groundbreaking science with cinematic stories of struggle and triumph’.

Executive produced by some of the sports world’s biggest names – think Arnold Schwarzenegger, Lewis Hamilton, Jackie Chan and Novak Djokovic – does the film live up to the hype?

The Doctors For Nutrition team attended the premiere screenings across Australia and New Zealand this week. Here’s what they had to say:

Dr. Andrew Little MD (Ambassadoc for Queensland)

“Do yourself a favor and watch this documentary. It’s absolutely amazing. It presents the facts of a plant-based diet in a really nice, logical order and hits on everything the public needs to know about. It features high profile athletes thriving on plant-based diets. Check it out, it is seriously a big eye-opener.”

Emma Strutt APD (Lead Dietitian for Queensland)

The Game Changers does a fantastic job at presenting the latest science (bonus points for the on-screen references) while completely obliterating the ridiculously out-of-date stereotype that ‘real men’ need to eat meat for strength, size and speed. Anyone who cares about their health and wellbeing, their athletic performance or the environment will take something of value away from this entertaining documentary.”

Dr. Malcolm Mackay MD (GP Resources Advisor)

“It blends nutrition science with the stories of some of the strongest, fastest and toughest athletes on the planet. The health science segments are well-researched and the information is presented at a pace and depth that is easy to understand.”

Jenny Cameron (Lead Research Advisor)

“Anyone who is an athlete needs to see this film. Anyone who works with athletes needs to see this film. Anyone worried about getting enough protein needs to see this film. We are confident this movie has what it takes to have a powerful impact across the world.”

As you can see, the Doctors For Nutrition team gives The Game Changers two big plant-powered thumbs up.
