I first watched Hungry For Change over Thanksgiving and have been waiting for the right time to blog about it. I re-watched it over my Christmas break and I am still just as blown away and mind-boggled as I was the first time I saw it. Whether you made a New Years resolution to eat better, to lose weight, to avoid chocolate, to become a vegetarian, or even if you made a resolution that wasn’t food related at all, this movie is worth your time to watch. I promise.
Here is some “food for thought” from the movie that might spark your interest:
- “We are not eating food anymore. We are eating food-like products”
- “A lot of people don’t realize that the answer to feeling better is to start from the inside out”
- “68% of U.S. adults are overweight or obese”
- “Sugar is a DRUG just like cocaine or heroin”
- “If it’s made in a lab, it takes a lab to digest it”
- “The simpler I get when it comes to food, the healthier I get”
- “Diets DO NOT work!”
- “Propylene Glycol, a chemical that can be used to winterize your vehicles or to clean out your colon before a colonoscopy, is also found in blueberry muffins.”
- “It’s not fat that makes you fat, it’s sugar that makes you fat!”
- “Vegetables are the most beneficial food group we have access to”
- “Nobody controls what YOU put in YOUR mouth”
- “Health is the natural state of the body. And we are NOT a healthy population!”
I really can’t say enough good things about Hungry For Change. It is SO relevant, realistic, motivating and inspiring. If this movie isn’t enough to make a person stop and re-evaluate their food choices and life habits, then I don’t know what is!
