The Game Changers

The Game Changers is a documentary about world-class athletes in a variety of sports who have been able to improve their health and performances, in part, by shifting from animal-based diets to whole foods plant-based diets. The documentary features James Wilks, Scott Jurek, and Patrik Babourmian.

James Wilks is the primary narrator and one of the producers. He was a self-defense instructor and mixed martial arts athlete. While he was convalescing from a training injury, he immersed himself in the scientific research on plant-based nutrition and its effects on recovery, health and athlete performance. He also interviewed outstanding vegan athletes.

As the narrator, Wilks illustrates his own recovery from injuries suffered in training for a return to competition. As viewers we see his exceptional recovery over time and not only regaining his ability to compete but also dramatically improving his strength and stamina.

The viewer is provided with some insightful interviewing of some of the highest performing athletes in the world. For example, Scott Jurek is the world record holder for running the entire Appalachian Trail, which is 2,190 plus miles long. According to the documentary, Wikipedia and multiple other sources, each year thousands of hikers attempt a thru hike: only about one in four makes it all the way. A typical thru hike takes 5 to 5 to 7 months to hike the entire Appalachian Trail, which is 2,190 plus miles long. Jurek set a record completing it in just 46 days!
