Fat Sick and Nearly Dead DVD - A Joe Cross Film

When the doco begins, Joe Cross walks around the pool and makes the comment that with his gut he looks like he “swallowed a sheep.” This sets the mood for a very entertaining look at a very serious problem in Australia and America at the moment, obesity.

Overweight Australian filmmaker Joe Cross attempts to wrestle back control of his failing health during a cross-country trek in which he engages everyday Americans in discussions about food and obesity in this lighthearted documentary addressing a deadly serious subject.

Clocking in at around 140 kg (310 pounds) and pumped full of steroids to battle a debilitating autoimmune disorder, Cross realised that he would soon be dead if he didn’t make some major lifestyle changes. But pharmaceuticals were only treating his symptoms, and no doctor seemed capable of providing the long-term care and support it would take to turn his life around.

Desperate, Cross loads up his car with a juicer and a generator, and pledges to survive on nothing but fresh fruit and vegetable juice for 60 days. Not long after his journey begins, Cross quickly realizes that he’s well on his way to ending his growing dependence on prescription drugs. His body has begun to heal itself, and as the process continues, Cross attempts to prove just how empowering it can be to take responsibility for our own health

Doctors and conventional medicine were unable to help Joe so he traded in junk food and hit the road with a juicer vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe had one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.

A really great movie to show you how you can take control of your health and your life, as long as you put in the hard work.
