From Keto To Plant-Based: ‘Watching The Game Changers Changed My Health’


1 Minutes Read

A former keto fan has transformed his health after ditching animal products.

US-based Dan Hancock decided to swap to a whole food plant-based diet after watching sports documentary The Game Changers.

Since changing his diet four months ago, he has lost 63lb, gone from 42 pants size to 34, and seen his blood pressure drop from 150/100 to 115/75.

The Game Changers

“I watched The Game Changers documentary and it completely changed my life,” Hancock told Plant Based News. “Two weeks before watching it, I was doing a ketogenic diet and I was eating a lot of burrito bowls, fajitas, that type of style, with a lot of cheese, seafood, chicken. A lot of sour cream, guacamole, vegetables, and a lot of oil in those.

“What I really liked about The Game Changers, and what really stuck out to me, was that NFL players specifically Tennessee Titan players are transitioning to a plant-based diet, which really opened my mind, as I’m an ex-football player and that’s a real macho sport, and it’s all about protein and eating meat.

“I see these guys are doing this [a plant-based diet] so they can prolong their careers, and play at a higher level, and it opened my eyes. If these guys are doing it, there’s something to it…I was a carnivore. I loved meat, I had it with every meal…If I could change, anybody can change.”
