“Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead”

If there is one thing that Netflix has given me during our love affair, it’s the endless supply of choices in the documentary department.

I just finished the 2010 documentary “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead” which follows Australian Joe Cross’ attempt to regain his health and battle his weight. Cross decides to drink only fresh fruit and vegetable juice for 60 days to “reboot” his system. With his juicer in tow, Cross travels around the United States talking to normal everyday Americans about what they eat.

The most prominent (and unexpected) part of the documentary is the story of Phil Staples, a truck driver that Cross meets during his journey. Staples, with the guidance of Cross and his doctors, takes on the juice “reboot” challenge.

What happens is truly inspiring…

I am now putting down the Smartfood popcorn and picking up an apple.
