Hungry for Change (DVD)

Are you hungry for a difference in your life?

Produced by the team which made Food Matters, Hungry for Change makes its case quickly and simply, by utilizing people who walk-the-walk as well as talk-the-talk. The basic gist is that we, as a species, are overweight because of our dependence on sugar. The discussion dovetails into what the food industry, as well as the diet industry, actively do to promote our consumption of their products. The greatest strength of the film is the straightforward nature with which this information is delivered. What could be very dry and science-jargon-heavy is instead approached as one would a conversation.

What makes Hungry for Change such a worthwhile endeavor is the sheer amount of motivation, information, and testimonials packed into the film. None of the topics are so overwhelming that the message is lost in translation. The main questions which occur as we watch are all eventually addressed, and the suggestions are practical, not drastic, so we’re much more likely to walk away believing it’s something we can adopt.

Hungry for Change has a positive message tightly woven into film which says what it wants and leaves us to ponder the message without feeling lost. I recommend it to anyone considering adopting a healthier lifestyle.

Presented in 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, the transfer exhibits a very slight amount of grain, slight enough I doubt the average viewer will even notice. The palette is a bit warmer than I expected, but no one looks like they’re Cheeto colored. The Dolby 2.0 Stereo is sufficient for the genre, and the only place it may sound off is during the dramatized portions of the film.

Special features include full interviews with two of the participants (Kris Carr and Jon Gabriel) which both offer expanded accounts of their inspirational personal journeys. The most interesting feature is the 8-page booklet which provides an abbreviated look at the published work the film is based on. We also get trailers for Hungry for Change and Food Matters.

If you’re looking for a way to quit the cycle of dieting by understanding why diets aren’t working for you in the first place, I strongly suggest you invest in a copy of Hungry for Change. I also recommend the official website which offers much more information than is presented here.
