Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead is a wonderful documentary on juicing and health. A great way to kick-start your path to a healthy diet is via juice cleanse/detoxification. I was particularly impressed by the second gentleman’s journey in this video; a trucker who weighs over 400 lbs! It’s extremely difficult to be healthy when your lifestyle prohibits your ability to do so. However, anything is possible, as long as you decide prioritize your life in a way which puts your health on top!
Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead is free to watch!
Synopsis from the official website:
100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn’t end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn’t far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health.
With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body’s ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.
While talking to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, it’s at a truck stop in Arizona where Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition. Phil Staples is morbidly obese weighing in at 429 lbs; a cheeseburger away from a heart-attack. As Joe is recovering his health, Phil begins his own epic journey to get well.
