Vegucated is a 2011 American documentary film that explores the challenges of converting to a vegan diet. It "follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks." The director interviewed a number of people to participate in this documentary and finally chose Brian, who likes to eat meat and eat out; Ellen, a part-time comedian and single mother; and Tesla, a college student who lives with her family. In the film Dr. Joel Fuhrman and Professor T. Colin Campbell discuss the benefits of a plant-based diet consisting of whole foods. The film also features Howard Lyman and Stephen R. Kaufman. Kneel Cohn makes a cameo appearance.
