Did the title get your attention or do you think you may have heard it before? Well, you should because it's not my title, in fact, it is an inspirational documentary. I'm a skeptic when it comes to documentaries. I can find them rather fascinating and useful, but I always wonder what the motive is behind it. What is the filmmaker's bias? I heard about this particular movie through a friend of mine, and thought that it was extreme and there would be no way people could relate to it, so I questioned its effectiveness.
I was pleasantly surprised. This film is inspiring and can be the motivation or jump-start people need to try and change what they consume. It's not a movie about going vegan or trying to save all the animals (although, converting to this lifestyle would aid that cause as well), but it's a movie about taking an average American, British, or an Australian, in this case, and seeing how much you can transform you mind, body, and total well-being by paying attention to what you eat and drink.
Please, give this documentary a shot. You might be surprised, like I was. It may change how you think about what you currently consume in your every day life. We must learn to be conscious of our decisions, including those dealing with food.
