Hungry for Change Discussion

The evening after posting about the Hungry for Change free worldwide online premiere, I made it a priority to sit down and watch it myself.  I am so happy that I did.  I hope that some of you did as well.  Though it is somewhat advertised as a film about weight loss, which it certainly does discuss, I have never gone on a diet and have very little desire to lose much weight, and I still found tons of material I can apply to my life.

Hungry for Change was an inspiring and informative documentary.  On their website it says,
In 'Hungry For Change' you'll discover:
  • How to navigate your supermarket - what to buy and what to avoid
  • The real truth behind "DIET", "SUGAR-FREE" and "FAT-FREE" products
  • How to overcome food addictions and cravings
  • Why fad diets don't work
  • What food additives to avoid and how to read labels
  • What is fat and cellulite and how do we get rid of it for good
  • The most effective detox and cleansing strategies, and
  • How to eat for clear eyes, glowing skin and healthy hair 
And it delivers!  There were so many interesting and important topics discussed in detail using scientific facts to back up the message.  There were many experts, nutritionists, doctors, authors, people who experienced real life transformations and more who were willing to share their expertise in the area of food and its effects on our bodies.  The main point I think the film made was that there is no "diet," in the sense of going on a diet, that will have long term benefits.  Weight loss and management and health can only come from living a healthy, natural lifestyle and eating real food.

What I really loved about Hungry for Change was that it was an empowering film.  After watching I felt like I now possessed the knowledge and the practical tips to realistically change my life.  I think this should be mandatory viewing for all adults and even children.  There is still a promotion going on now where you can watch the first 20 minutes for free here online.  If you missed out on the full film, I think the 20 minutes are worth it.

Did you watch Hungry for Change?  What did you think?

  1. I was also inspired by the film. After watching it my husband and I talked about lifestyle changes that we have to make in order to protect ourselves and our son. I'm so excited about the changes we're making. Thanks for sharing the video :)

  2. I really liked the film. I think meat should have been addressed a little more, because I felt a vegetarian push from the film and that wont work for everyone. Talking about pasture raised animals would have been aweseome, but overall what a great message! I love how it shows how the low-fat fad is a joke.

    1. You are right that meat wasn't addressed very much. That would have been a great addition. I'm glad you enjoyed the film still.
