    The best-selling documentary of ALL TIME on iTunes (in less than a week).



    Available now on Netflix: The Game Changers.


    The Game Changers tells the story of James Wilks — elite Special Forces trainer and The Ultimate Fighter winner — as he travels the world on a quest to uncover the optimal diet for human performance.

    Showcasing elite athletes, special ops soldiers, visionary scientists, cultural icons, and everyday heroes, what James discovers permanently changes his understanding of food and his definition of true strength.
    The Game Changers Movie.

    I just watched this on Netflix and enjoyed it and highly recommend it. Of course, I may suffer from confirmation bias so you will need to form your own opinion after watching it. :smile:

    At Denver's Los Olivos our take away salad is called ... Born to Run.

    Of course, we were teased ... This salad gives you the what?????

    The thing is, it was designed after a salad preferred by Scott Jurek. Who wrote a book called Eat and Run. It is about his racing encounter with the Tarahumara Indians. Scott Jurek is a living legend. Named one of the greatest runners of all time, he has claimed victories in nearly all of ultrarunning's elite trail and road events.

    I don't know if the documentary features him ... but Scott is a vegan.
