The film had a good over-all message but pitched some poorly-supported and pseudoscientific advice
on December 6, 2015
The film had a good over-all message: avoid fad diets, eat minimally processed foods, eat mainly vegetables. The film was primarily footage of interviews with people who had written books on nutrition or weight loss, who seemed to have variable degrees of expertise. Despite a promising thesis, many of the details appeared unscientific and misleading, for example, interviewees plugged an indiscriminate fear of 'chemical' food additives, and endorsed "detoxing". The film generally did not try to substantiate its advice with supporting evidence.
In spite of the tagline, "Hungry for Change exposes shocking secrets the diet, weight loss and food industries don't want you to know about deceptive strategies designed to keep you coming back for more" -- the practices of the diet, weight loss and food industries was not a major focus of the film.
