We say we want to change our eating habits, lose weight and make the world a better place – but for some reason we are always “too busy” “too lazy” or “will start on Monday”.
I’ve been procrastinating my health and eating habits my entire life time. Getting down to action just felt like too much of a pain in the ass.
But after I came across and watched all of the documentaries on Netflix about food, health and the environment, a big shift happened in me.
They completely opened my eyes, spoke the truth and I got myself a reality check after the other. I truly felt for the first time ever that I couldn’t continue with my unhealthy eating habits because I finally understood what I was actually feeding myself. And I got really put off.
Like I have mentioned in the post about Olesya Malinskaya’s eating habits, if you really want to change your health, you need to do a lifestyle change just the way she did. And to actually feel the motivation for making a lifestyle change, you need to educate yourself with true facts. You need to watch some documentaries that will explain things you should be aware of. I can guarantee after watching a few you will get second thoughts of what it is you are actually doing to your body.
Here are the most popular documentaries about food, health and the environment. Watch and get inspired to change your life once and for all.
