Even though we are in the midst of a modern health crisis, where weight and health problems plague our modern day societies, something extremely positive is happening during this time as well. It is an awakening that is driving a shift in consciousness. Thanks to the brave pioneering work and dedication of numerous beings on the planet today, as well as the ease with which we can share information thanks to the Internet, we are leaving behind the age of ignorance, deception and illusion. We can each now expand our awareness on all topics thanks to so many blogs, videos, documentaries, speakers, books and other sources that awaken, enlighten and inspire us.
Along my personal health journey, I know I have been greatly inspired, awakened and moved to action thanks to so much of the pioneering work done over the years by various experts, but especially in the past decade. Today, I enjoy giving back through the work I do, to inspire and awaken others to be most informed and have the best health and life quality possible. About four years ago, one of the many resources that opened up many new doors of information for me was the best selling documentary “Foodmatters”.
Today, the makers of that film have produced another film, called Hungry for Change – Your health is in your hands. The film addresses the general topics of our food, health and nutrition today, with a specific focus on lasting weight loss, abundant energy and vibrant health.
Even though “Foodmatters” was a great documentary, it does not compare to this new film Hungry for Change. To sum it up, Hungry for Change is phenomenal! An absolute must-see for every person and family in our society today to become explicitly aware of the effects the food they are choosing is having on the health and weight they experience. I just had the pleasure of seeing this film myself and in this review will share with you more of what you can expect and why I strongly recommend for each person to see this film.
Hungry for Change is a documentary film, newly released in the spring of 2012.
The film was produced and directed by James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch. They are nutritional consultants turned filmmakers, who believe that “Your body is worthy of good care and no one is more suitably qualified to care for it than yourself”. Both of them attended the Global College of Natural Medicine in Santa Cruz, California and were passionate to help others understand the connections between diet and disease. The film was also produced and edited by Enzo Tedeschi, who has been working in the film and television Industry for a decade.
The film is about 1 hour and a half in length, and available for viewing online and on DVD, with screenings coming soon. Up to date information can be found on the film website: HungryForChange.tv
Hungry for Change highlights the role food plays in making us sick, tired and fat, or healthy, energetic and fit. It exposes secrets the diet, weight loss and food industries don’t want you to know about, as well as the deceptive strategies designed to keep you craving more of the most harmful foods.
The format of the documentary features various medical and nutrition experts speaking out about the different chemicals in our food, why we gain weight, why we cannot lose weight and how our modern food and lifestyles are working against our body’s natural state of health. In between hearing from the experts, the film weaves a story line of a an average, single, office working woman, who leads a typical busy and stressed life, nourishing herself with various processed and junk food. She is self-conscious, tired, lacking in vitality, while buying into the conditioned mainstream gimmicks of diets and diet foods. Over the course of the film, as we hear from the experts, we see her transform her life to embark on a more empowered health path.
