Hungry For Change is a documentary created by James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch, both nutritional consultants and filmmakers. Over 1 hour and 29 minutes, the creators try to expose what constant dieting, weight loss, and the food industry do to our bodies and how you can overcome it by starting a healthy life, eating whole and nutritional foods from natural sources.
The documentary brings interviews with many best-selling authors, leading medical experts and real life transformational stories, going through the following topics:
- Modern lifestyle that leads to epidemic obesity.
- Huge offer of tasty but poorly nutritional food.
- Marketing and industry tricks to make you eat and buy more processed food.
- Discuss sugar consumption and how it triggers our brains to eat in excess.
- High consumption of refined carbohydrates.
- Fat free products, “their healthy appeal” and their hidden sugars.
I believe this documentary is perfect for those lacking a bit of foundation knowledge about health and general well-being. It’s a good choice to send to that friend we all know that should consider having a bit more of information about the topic, or maybe had just started thinking about the subject.
I’ve watched it on Netflix. In case you’re interested, find the official trailer below:
