Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead

We recently watched the movie/documentary, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead in which Aussie filmmaker, Joe Cross documents his journey across the United States while performing a 60 day juice fast. The film was an inspiring demonstration of how you can heal the human body with fruits and vegetables, a seriously powerful juicer, and a healthy amount of resolve. Whether you want to reboot your body or rededicate yourself to eating healthy, it's worth watching. The movie resonated more with Jenni than with me, inspiring her to try a juice fast of her own. But you can't argue with Joe's results nor with the number of people he's inspired.

We picked up a Breville juicer like the one in the film, and Jenni used it to perform a three day 'Long Weekend Reboot.' She found it challenging and exhausting what with the kids running around and me doing my usual amount of weekend cooking. But she felt great after the third day and is going to try another one. 

The film is available on Netflix and Hulu.
