Rave Review: Hungry for Change (Documentary)

It’s not just what you’re eating, it’s what’s eating you.”

Recently, Jeremy and I have been extremely engulfed in the world of Netflix. There are such incredible documentaries on Netflix that people do not necessarily hear about, otherwise.

Being that it is the beginning of a new year, so many people are feeling very motivated and inspired to start the year off on a healthier note. I am not excluded from this group of people looking to find healthier alternatives and yearning to become a fitter individual.

Hungry For Change is an incredible documentary that is both eye opening and has a bit of a shock value. This documentary does not sugar coat (punny) the harsh reality of the dieting world and the dangers of what Jon Gabriel, author and weight loss expert, refers to as dead food. Something that I have been admittedly addicted to is Diet Coke. I don’t think that I’m alone in my struggles with my addiction to the lethal soda. While it is marketed to be a diet friendly drink, Hungry For Change exposes that the exact opposite results are being achieved. Again, this is not news to me but sometimes we all need a reminder.

Man made foods are the root of the problem. As the documentary points out, we all know this. If we know better, shouldn’t we do better? That should be the case but it is not the reality. Processed foods are damaging to our our overall health; our hormone levels, sugar levels, and cholesterol are just a few internal victims to name.

Diets do not have longevity. Like so many others, I have been victim to many a diet in my short 24 years. At the end of the day, what we are all striving for is a healthy lifestyle with healthy results. We only have one chance at treating our body right, so we don’t we? My recent thought has been that if someone has an allergy, they don’t eat a particular food because they know it will kill them. Why then do people continue to eat processed junk food? Maybe the consequences are not as immediate as an allergy, but these foods are slowly killing us and making people very sick.

One of the most interesting points that the documentary is very adamant on, is the comparison of sugar to cocaine. Both begin from a natural, plant based entity; sugar cane and coca plants. Both are refined, white substances that chemically alter the brain and have damaging results. That was enough to shock me into wanting nothing to do with sugar. Sure, it’s a bit of an extreme comparison, but it isn’t malarky. This is the reality of what we are ingesting and putting into our body.

Watch the trailer and get lured in. Hungry for Change isn’t necessarily telling us something new but it is telling us what we need to hear to get motivated and inspired from a different perspective.

Thanks for stopping by,

Merzybean.
