If you expected in your life to hear a medical doctor suggest that the raw food diet, or juicing is capable of reversing heart disease you would pinch yourself to see if you were sleeping on our perhaps you would think that end timed upon us. But this actually happened in the documentary “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2″.
After the film “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead” documented his 60 day juice fast, Joe Cross vowed never to go on camera again. Since then, more than 20 million people have seen the film and Joe realized there’s still a lot for him to learn about becoming healthy and staying that way. “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2” taps into the tsunami of positive change that’s sweeping the world when it comes to what we eat.
As Joe sets out to learn how to be healthy in an unhealthy world, he talks to a wide range of experts, follows up with folks from the first film, and connects with new people along the way. Each one helps Joe learn that healthy eating is only one aspect of living a healthy life. From stay-at-home moms to world-class surgeons to office workers in Kenya, it seems like everyone is trying to be healthier, yet struggling to do so. Sick, Tired, Nearly Dead website
