To Get Wellness Going, You Need a Kickstart

I watched Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. The trailer is below.

The premise is that Joe Cross is fat, sick and nearly dead. (Duh!) He’s led a life of excess: eating junk food and not exercising. So, he decided to do something about it. Quick.

He “reboots” his life by going on a juice-only fast for 60 days. You know the rest: He loses 100 pounds. A debilitating skin condition goes away. And he inspires others with his microbiotic diet. He actually saves an Iowa trucker’s life by helping the guy lose over 200 pounds. And that guys helps a whole community…and his own brother, who has has a heart attack at age 41 from being morbidly obese.

I know, there’s no simple cure for anything. And you could say, “Oh, that won’t work.” But it did. It’s about recalibrating and changing your lifestyle. About making choices. About living a long and full life.

I’d really recommend the movie. It’s inspiring. It makes you think. You cheer for people.

If you’re in the wellness business, there’s something to learn. If you’re fat, sick & nearly dead, there’s a lot to learn. Reboot is one way.

I’m gonna get a juicer and test this out. I’ll let you know.

You can get a bunch more background on the film here.
