The Game Changers tells the story of James Wilks, elite special forces trainer and winner of Amercan reality TV program The Ultimate Fighter, as he travels the world on a quest for the truth behind the world’s most dangerous myth -- that meat is necessary for protein, strength and optimal health.
Directed by Oscar-winner Louie Psihoyos, executive produced by James Cameron, and featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Game Changers fuses live, groundbreaking science with cinematic stories of struggle and triumph showcasing some of the strongest, fastest and toughest athletes on the planet.
Meeting elite athletes, special ops soldiers, visionary scientists, cultural icons, and everyday heroes, what James discovers permanently changes his relationship with food and his definition of true strength.
Today on Face2Face, David Peck talks to The Game Changers' co-producer Joseph Pace.
Joseph Pace is a Canadian writer and researcher who has been focused on the future of food for more than two decades. Prior to his work on The Game Changers, Joseph coordinated What’s On Your Plate?, a multidisciplinary report that examined the hidden costs of industrial agriculture in Canada on public health, rural communities, the environment, and animal welfare.
Pace also played a pivotal role in helping to launch NutritionFacts.org, the first non-commercial, science-based website to provide free video updates on the latest in nutrition research.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
