(Organic Slant) 100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope. In the mirror he saw a 310 lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldnʼt end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasnʼt far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joeʼs personal mission to regain his health.
With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long term, Joe turns to the only option left, the bodyʼs 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 get healthy.
While talking to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, itʼs 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. He is a cheeseburger away from a heart attack. As Joe is recovering his health, Phil begins his own epic journey to get well.
What emerges is nothing short of amazing – an inspiring tale of healing and human connection. Part road trip, part self-help manifesto, FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD defies the traditional documentary format to present an unconventional and uplifting story of two men from different worlds who each realize that the only person who can save them is themselves.
If you want to experience incredible health benefits or lose weight, do not skip over the powers of juicing.
The Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead diet consists of nothing but fruit and vegetable juice for 60 days. For 6-8 months after the fast, Cross ate only vegetables, fruits, nuts, and beans to ensure the continuation of a healthy lifestyle. You can pick up almost any juicing book to get tons of different juicing recipes. No one, of course, needs to juice for a straight 60 days to see tremendous health benefits. If you are interesting in juice fasting, start with a week, then 10 days, then 20 days, etc. It may seem difficult at first, but you can do it.
