New Documentary Film Shows That Your Health
Is In Your Own Hands

Hungry for Change

Despite all the confusion thrown at us by the multibillion dollar diet and weight loss industry, a new documentary film shows us how to take control of our health and weight—naturally.

In 2005, the findings of the New England Journal of Medicine concluded that for the first time in 1,000 years, life expectancy is expected to decline. Put in simple terms, the children of this generation may not live as long as their parents.

After intense research, examining the way we live and putting Western food views under the microscope, ground-breaking documentary film makers, James Colquhoun and Laurentine ten Bosch, took these findings one step further and questioned: are we eating ourselves sick and obese?

Alarmingly, they found that those of us attempting to change the habits of a lifetime of damage are being held back by a food and weight loss industry which has a multibillion dollar interest in keeping us tethered to bad health.

Their brand new documentary, Hungry For Change, exposes the deceptive strategies the diet world uses to keep us unhappy, unhealthy, and coming back for more. After their first documentary, Food Matters, won plaudits from nutritional and health experts around the world and changed attitudes towards food and wellbeing, James and Laurentine have turned their attention to revolutionizing how we view dieting and so-called “health foods.”

“We all want a perfect sculpted body, beautiful skin, a youthful appearance, and probably most importantly, we all want more energy,” Laurentine said. “If it was really as easy as the weight loss and food industry want us to believe, then why don’t we all have it?”

Hungry For Change shows you how many of the ‘health foods’ we eat are keeping us locked in the dieting and bad health cycle, and how by educating ourselves about what we eat and where it comes from, we can truly take control of our appearance, our health and ultimately, our life.”

“We both come from a nutritional background, but more importantly, we have seen the effects modern eating habits and the so-called ‘wonder drugs’ have had on a personal level, on our loved ones,” says James.

“We knew there was a better way. Food Matters, our first film, enlightened audiences on how what we consume dictates our health and well being. Hungry For Change tackles the myths mainstream media and the multi-billion dollar food and diet industries have promoted, for people who may think they are doing the right thing, but have really fallen victim to lies designed to keep that money coming in.”

Endorsed by international peak performance expert Anthony Robbins, who called the film “inspiring” and said it will “transform your health,” Hungry For Change features interviews with healthy food crusader Jamie Oliver, as well as best selling authors and leading medical experts, including Dr Alejandro Junger, Dr Christiane Northrup, David Wolfe, Daniel Vitalis, Dr Joseph Mercola, Jason Vale, Jon Gabriel, Kris Carr, and Mike Adams.

Aware of just how hard it can be to change your life, Laurentine and James also included the real life stories of Evita Ramparte, Frank Ferrante, and Joe Cross, who themselves struggled with weight issues and managed to turn their lives around dramatically. “It’s easy to say, oh, this is how you do it,” Laurentine said, “but to hear the stories from these people, who were once themselves part of the obesity epidemic and to hear how they used education, visualization, and commitment to take back their lives, is beyond inspiring. It’s empowering.”

James says, “There is this prevalent mind set in our society where we think that being overweight, having food allergies, feeling sluggish or run down is just part of life and aging. It’s not true and with access to solid information, people invariably start making better choices for their health. This film helps people help themselves”

About the Film Makers

As nutritionists turned film makers, Laurentine ten Bosch and James Colquhoun are committed to sharing this important message with the world. With over 230,000 DVDs of their first film, Food Matters sold worldwide, Hungry For Change is set to reach a very wide audience. With Hippocrates’ wisdom “Let thy food be thy medicine” as their vision, they first sought alternatives to pharmaceutical drugs after seeing the terrible side effects they were having on their family. They set off on a path of discovery, studied nutrition through the Global College of Natural Medicine in California, and instantly became aware that they weren’t alone with their concerns. Documenting their journey and learning with a camera in hand, this later became the footage and content for the global sensation, Food Matters. The filmmakers interviewed several world leaders in nutrition and natural healing who all claim the same thing—we are harming our bodies with improper nutrition, but that the right kind of foods, supplements, and detoxification can be used to treat chronic illnesses as fatal as terminally diagnosed cancer.
