Documentary Details: Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead

I have been talking about our new healthy eating habit to pretty much anyone that will listen. A coworker was really excited by the idea, and told me I needed to watch the Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead documentary for inspiration. It is the story of one man’s adventures in juicing as a means to get down to a healthier weight, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I felt like Joe was very relate-able, even though he is more well off than the average viewer. His motivation for documenting his weight loss progress mirrors my own motivation for starting this blog. I also found him to be a very generous spirit and loved that he took some of the people he met on his travels under his wing. Finding liked minded people to help you on your journey is key!

I really liked that they showed health care professionals in the documentary, and that both Joe and Phil met with physicians before they started the “reboot.” It helped me see it as a viable option as opposed to a story about someone who starved themselves for two months. I don’t think I could do a 60 day challenge, but I am very interested in trying one of the shorter challenges.

Reboot With Joe is the companion website to the movie. I have saved the link for future reference since Clayton and I are motivated to try the 3 Day Plan. They also have modifications you can make to the plan that would accommodate blending instead of juicing. But we’ve got to finish our current habit before we take on a new one. Baby steps!

I’ve got Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 on the docket for this weekend. Will you be giving it a go?
