I spent this morning watching a documentary by Joe Cross called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. In the event that you don’t know what this is, let me tell you what it’s all about. It’s a documentary about a man named Joe Cross and his battle with weight loss and getting his health back. I’m going to tell you everything that I know about Joe and his journey to a healthier lifestyle. But first, let me tell you some more about Joe and what this whole documentary really is…
What Is Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead?
This is a documentary that can literally be life-changing for overweight individuals. If you’re not intrigued by what I’m telling you now and what I’m about to share then you should be worried. Anyone not interested in getting healthy should be very concerned. Keep an open mind and read my review before making any judgments.
The documentary consists of Joe Cross leaving Australia and heading over to the United States in order to get his health back in order. The fruit and vegetable diet consisted of consuming nothing other than freshly squeezed vegetables and fruits combined with water. It’s basically a juice cleanse that actually works.
Joe is no slouch when it comes to life and living. He’s made a lot of money and has been successful in other aspects of his life. However, he’s failed drastically from a health perspective.
Joe was literally 100 pounds overweight and had to take steroids just to control his autoimmune disease. He had a rare illness that would cause his skin to break out in painful rashes. He traveled 3,000 miles to hit the road and drive across the United States with a juicer in his car.
What Happened To Joe?
The very first thing that Joe was able to notice was a huge loss in weight. He also noticed that his health improved to the nth degree. The rare immune condition that would frequently cause disturbing rashes was soon under control. He was able to successfully stop taking the prednisone that he was chewing daily. The toxins that had built up in his body had been removed from his system. Basically, he made food his medicine and left it at that.
I don’t want to tell you the entire story but Joe did convert another individual from Iowa. A truck driver wanted to jump on the fruit and vegetable fast so he contacted Joe Cross. I’ll tell you exactly what happened, the truck driver dropped 60 pounds the first month. How incredible does that sound? All from simply living a healthy lifestyle. What’s the worst thing that can happen really?
Guess what, the truck driver continued his fasting on fresh fruit and vegetable juice for a total of 60 days and he even started a community juice fasting process. The truck driver was down 91 pounds in just 57 days. That’s a total of six bowling balls! The people within his community had been losing weight from doing so as well.
How To Properly Do A Juice Fast
Here’s what I’d recommend if you want to properly do a juice fast like Joe Cross did from Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.
The first thing you want to do is set a reachable goal. Set the number of days that you plan on doing the fast and what you’d like to accomplish during that process.
Then you should hit the grocery store and check to see if you have access to fresh produce that’s pesticide free. You want to go 100% organic if possible because it makes a huge difference.
The next thing you want to do is buy a high-quality juicer. Find one that is easy to assemble and clean. I’d recommend checking out Amazon to see what juicers have the best reviews. Find a Breville Juice on Amazon that you can afford and just go for it!
You should drink a minimum of four or five juices each day. This can help you curb or reduce your hunger pains. Another important thing to remember is that you must drink a lot of water while juicing.
I’d also suggest that you do some light basic exercising as well during your juicing phase.
Be sure to consult with a doctor before beginning the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead diet. It might change your life forever and for the better, but better safe than sorry.
