Dave and I watched an inspirational video documentary last month called ‘Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead’. It both inspired us and moved us to get juicing ASAP!
100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross (an Aussie with a great sense of humour!) is at the end of his rope and is looking to make some serious lifestyle changes. ‘Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead’ is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health.
He leaves Australia, trades in his junk food and hits the road in the USA with a juicer and goes on a 60 day juicing tour, regaining his health and also educating people about food, health and longevity. He comes across a amazing soul, Phil Staples, who is a truck driver suffering from the same rare condition. It is an inspiring story of healing and human connection.
A truly uplifting story which I hope you all take the time to watch. It is available on Netflix! You may also check out the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead website which has great juicing and health tips.
Check out the movie trailer:
Joe Cross provides an excellent free 3-day Quick Start Reboot plan filled with all the details about a Reboot including a meal plan, juice recipes, exercise tips and more!
FYI, I wrote this while sipping on a big glass of fresh green juice….yes, I am definitely inspired and motivated to make juicing a daily part of my life! Thank you to Joe and Phil for helping so many people get well and get many off their meds!!
