    RHR: Reflections on The Game Changers Debate

    RHR: Reflections on The Game Changers Debate

    The film The Game Changers makes a number of claims I disagree with—namely, that animal products are harmful and that a vegan diet is optimal for athletes. I recently appeared on The Joe Rogan Experience alongside James Wilks, a producer on the film, to discuss the science behind those claims and the reasons I’m skeptical. Unfortunately, that’s not what unfolded during the debate. In this episode of Revolution Health Radio, I address the claims made during that debate and offer more clarity on this nuanced topic.

Packed with current research and clinical experience

I’ve followed Chris for years and really value his opinion on health. He does a good (not perfect) job of cutting through biases to get to the core of what research says. He knows what works for real people in the real world. He is very smart with an amazing ability to recall information and that gives the podcasts a very nice flow with few tangents or unimportant details. His vocal style is relaxed because he’s focusing on relaying information and not theatrics.
He always has a great report with his guests and their exchanges are some of the best I’ve heard in a podcast. His guests are SPECTACULAR, always interesting and just jam-packed with knowledge and experience. I always come away with something that deeply resonates with me and my life. Chris has a deep respect and thorough knowledge of his guests’ work which allows for really nuanced and detailed discussion.
I would recommend this podcast to anyone who likes to learn and wants to optimize their health and happiness. My life continues to get better and better as I apply what I’ve learned.

Keep Fighting Chris

Maybe you should get a DO, or at least a PHD in integrative medicine or nutrition. With your experience and patient hours you should probably already have one. Just so we don’t have hear about your credentials again. You’re more than qualified and I’m very glad you did this most recent episode. The debate really needed to be addressed. Thanks for your work.
