      Copying and pasting from the film's website:

      Directed by Louie Psihoyos and executive produced by James Cameron, The Game Changers tells 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 behind the world's most dangerous myth: that meat is necessary for protein, strength and optimal health. Meeting elite athletes, special ops soldiers, visionary scientists, cultural icons, and everyday heroes, what James discovers permanently changes his relationship with food and his definition of true strength.

      Louie Psihoyos won an Oscar for The Cove. "The world's most dangerous myth" is a bold premise for a documentary. Given the fierce debates we've had on Cake about heart disease, Alzheimer's and athletic performance versus diet, I'm super anxious to see what the film has to say.

    • What's it all about? I'm curious and as an aging and somewhat competitive athlete I am always looking for easier ways to get the same results or even improve them. The problem is that over the years I've so far learned that other than a balanced diet, rest, not overtraining and listening to your body there isn't any miracle products or workouts that can do more than must smart and hard training can. There are performance enhancing drugs of course but I'm not so competitive (or foolish) that I'm going to get sucked into that black hole.

    • I haven't seen it but from the reviews I've read it's basically about not needing to eat meat to be a world champion athlete. You get healthier and you save the planet.
