Entrepreneur Charles Michael Yim has praised The Game Changers for being ‘backed by science’ and not corporation bias.
The Shark Tank star says the film is pushing him towards a fully vegan diet. He currently describes himself as a ‘flexitarian’ – a diet high in plant-based meals but still includes small amounts of animal products.
‘I recommend everyone watch it’
“I’ve been a meat-eater all my life,” Yim tells Plant Based News’ co-founder Robbie Lockie on the latest episode of the PBN Podcast.
“I’m Asian-American and my mum kinda cooked Asian cuisine growing up as well as American and French and so forth…
“I recently [became] a newfound Father. My little boy Junior is roughly about 17 months old now. I just turned 37 in addition to that so, your body doesn’t work like it used to in your 20s right?
“Your metabolism slows down and it takes a little longer to recover; you have to try a little harder to stay in shape. So I think both life events combined encouraged me to look at my health from a different perspective.”
I actually watched the documentary on Netflix called The Game Changers. Yeah, I recommend everyone to watch it if they can.
“It’s a documentary on a plant-based diet but it’s backed by science produced by both Arnold Schwarzennerg and Jackie Chan not some big corporation or what have you that tries to lean in towards a certain bias.”
‘The Game Changers’
The Game Changers ‘documents the explosive rise of plant-based eating in professional sports’. It is directed by Oscar-winner Louie Psihoyos and executive produced by Oscar-winner James Cameron. Mixed martial artists James Wilks stars and produces.
