The Game Changers

Every now and then you watch something that has the potential to be an absolute life changer.  Based on the recommendation by a good friend of mine, I sat down last night and watched The Game Changers on Netflix.  It couldn't have come at a better time for me, frankly.  Essentially, it's about world class athletes who have made the switch to plant based diets and it was utterly fascinating.  

​After getting the directive from my physician to get my cholesterol down asap, it was cool to see it work in the real world.  Now, I'm not sure if you know this, but I'm just a radio guy and not a world class athlete.  But if it works for them, it can certainly work for me.  

You may be skeptical.  I was skeptical.  But when you see folks like Nate Diaz, 15 Tennessee Titans, and Arnold Schwarzenegger all make the switch with great success...it definitely makes you ask yourself...why not me?  

Now, I will pledge to you to not wear you out with it (as I'm already being worn out byit), but I'll share updates when necessary.  Honestly, I feel bad about my buddy in Texas who's doing it, as there is BBQ on every corner in that state.  Going vegan (lite) in California shouldn't be a problem.  But the thought of not being around for my son in 4-5 years is worth more to me than the mild discomfort of not eating meat.  Thanks for listening and check out the doc on Netflix!
