movie to see: fat, sick, and nearly dead

Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead – Official Trailer from Team Reboot on Vimeo.

Doug (you may remember him from my blog about Organic Avenue), told me about this great-sounding documentary called Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.

The uplifting story follows a man named Joe Cross on a cross country road trip where he vows to do a juice fast for 60 days (consuming only fruits and vegetables in liquid form). On his transformative journey, he meets and inspires Phil Staples – a 420 pound truck driver from Iowa – to do the same.

You can stream or download the film here, and you can join Joe’s online community Reboot Your Life here.

    Watched it and I loved it! I am a biomedical engineer, and I mean I’ve always known a lot of the synthetic, processed, and genetically modified food causes a plethora of health concerns, but I didn’t know that one could suffice for 60 days on juice!
