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.

This documentary about nutrition teaches you that a selective diet can play a key role in treating a range of health conditions such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease and depression, often substituting for medical treatment. F

urthermore, it tends to label the medical industry as a “sickness industry”, which profits more from treating the symptoms of illness than curing the illness.

The film accuses the medical and pharmaceutical industries of a general conspiracy to perpetuate poor health in order to maximize profits.

    i am so happy you are committed to a healthy lifestyle! i got really into non gmo, antibiotics and all that other gross stuff almost 2 years ago and i got a lot of negativity for it. i am american and i would say 98% of the people i know do not care about what they eat unless it has a small amount of calories. i know people who drink only coke during the day because it has very few calories. it is not the calories that matter it is the ingredients! people think i am insane for doing research on brands and taking my time at the grocery store to read labels. unfortunately in the us there is a very small demand for non gmo products. companies like monsanto and syngenta have cornered the farming and processing markets and it is almost impossible to escape it! you are lucky you live in europe since so many processed foods are banned there where in the us they are staples in the pantry.

    One of your best post yet. I used to be addicted to documentaries like this and have watch something similar in the past. I have change my husband and I diet, 80% of the food we eat is organic. In the U.S. they charge more to eat healthy. In Europe I noticed that food is healthier there, you don’t need as much vitamins to substitute the lost of nutrients in the food.

    I will watch the ones you suggested first and on my down time in the near future the rest.

    Thank you for sharing, this is a great reminder.

    Very good topic JSB! I`ve watched Earthlings… It was so hard to watch. I couldn`t stop crying… Felt with all my heart the pain of these animals. Couldn`t sleep for days after that. And not just my but all my family. :( So hard! Still remember it very vividly. I`ve watched Fat, Sick and Nearly dead too.. Thank you for that buy the way!
    And I wanted to say about the diet rutine of Malinskaya – SHE IS A BIG FAT LIER. Few days ago I`ve watched her Instragram profile and it is full with photos of what she is eating. This things that she claims – all bull shit. She is eating OF ALL! Or at least pretending to eat. Which also makes her lier. But judging by the fotos of her before all these operations she has done to herself, just looking at her body structure, I can tell that she just has that body type – too thin, plain like a table. Those girls stay skinny like a toothpick during their whole life. While the rest of us get more weight after 25, people with her body type (very very tall and skinny) after 25 get a normal body, that doesn`t look sick like from anorexic or somethink. All the shape she gots it`s cause she has took out two of her ribs and she has ass-implants so now she`s a litlle more woman-shaped. She would`ve looked like a dry rod, if it wasn`t her luck to find someone blind enouth to buy her some shape.

    I`ve informed myself so well about GMO products. Unfortunately I feel like it served me for nothing. There are no other type of fruits and vegetables out there. And even if there is a small percentage of things that aren`t VERY poisoned, I couldn`t of known that from a simple look. So it really just made me more depressed and desperate. Before I didn`t knew. Now I do, but still can`t change anything. But I`ll watch everything you`ve posted. Thank you for that lovely sellection. :)
