Veganuary – Can I Train on a Meat-Free Diet?
Adopting a vegan diet can be difficult, especially when it comes to training and supplements. But are vegan diets and supplements as efficient as others? The 2019 documentary The Game Changers aims to investigate the truth about meat, protein and plant-based diets in professional athletes…and the results might shock you!
While some documentaries who advocate for a purely plant-based diet have been known to manipulate the data, Game Changers takes a relatively unbiased approach and lets the science do the talking.
The documentary, currently streaming on Netflix, is presented by big names such as James Cameron, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jackie Chan and Lewis Hamilton.
