Power of Juicing

Feeling fat, sick and nearly dead?  Well, that's the title of the documentary that I watched last week that focuses on the power of micronutrients in fruits and vegetables and has started a reboot revolution!  Joe Cross's film Fat Sick and Nearly Dead focuses on the power of health and weight loss through juice fasting.  A way of "rebooting" your body and your life.

I found it very down to earth, refreshing, and eye opening on how lax people are about their own health and well being.  They would sooner take tons of prescriptions and live obese than give up fast, fat, sugary, salty unhealthy food.  "Might as well die happy" I believe one them said.

Happy?  When your body begins to fight back by shutting down your kidneys and you end up on dialysis?  Happy?  When you have to find creative ways to wash yourself, get around or even dress?  Happy?  When you are reliant on friends and family because you can't do anything for yourself?  Yeah.. sounds like a happy life to me!

Others had the position that they had healthy family members that died of cancer.  What was their healthy?  Cancer doesn't discriminate, and I'm sorry, I personally would want my body healthy before trying to beat cancer.  Fat cells surely are not the cure!

Anyway, the hubs and I are going to be adding these power juices to our lives.  While we may not fast on "just juice", we both agree this is definitely a wonder way to get all the extra nutrients that come from fruits and vegetables in a single serving.

The website for this film also has a support group or as they call a "Juicing Community" at  Definitely, a film worth watching.  (Already watched it twice in a week!  lol)
