Movies That Inspire Change
An invitation to family and friends.
You’re all invited to my house for a movie night!
You bring the snacks and I’ll bring the movies.
Movies that inspire [cue the Rocky theme song]. Wait, not that kind of movie.
When I think about movies that have inspired me or even going as far as saying movies that were life changing it’s not fitness that comes to mind. It’s food. It’s nutrition, health care and a plant based diet.
In late 2011 and early 2012 I watched 3 movies and I never looked at nutrition, food, health care and the food industry the same way again.
Knowledge is power, right?
How did the movies change my life?
- I was empowered to make educated and informed decisions about nutrition.
- I had more knowledge about food production and the food industry.
- I began to question why my doctor never discussed nutrition as part of treatment.
- I changed my diet and reaped the benefits physically (aka no migraines that often ended in a trip to the emergency room).
- I challenged and changed my old way of thinking about food.
- I realized how enormous the role of food is on how we look, feel and perform.
- I questioned why doctors are so quick to write a prescription.
This powerful film changed the way millions of Americans eat.
An inspiring film that chronicles Joe Cross’ personal mission to regain his health. 100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn’t end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn’t far behind.
A thought provoking movie that examines the profound claim that most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.
Everyone should watch these movies!
Not so much to become a vegetarian, or take on any other label for that matter, but to be informed and to be open to the possibility that your current way of thinking may be challenged.
I would love to chat:
Have you ever watched a movie that was literally life changing? Have you ever watched a movie that changed your thinking? What is the most inspiring movie you’ve ever watched?
