There is a great documentary film about juicing that has really made me think about my health and my dietary habits. It’s called “Fat Sick and Nearly Dead”. The film follows a very overweight, and sick, Australian man by the name of Joe Cross as he journeys and juices across America. During his 2 months of travel he doesn’t eat a single thing the entire time. By doing so he eventually is able to go completely off of all his medications and drops a ton of weight. I mean, you should see his transformation, it’s literally amazing! By the end he virtually glows with health, and looks so much happier, and all just buy juicing. He also invites people along the way to juice and some of these people have wonderful, uplifting stories to tell.
At times, during my life, I have juiced and have always felt a huge benefit, but seeing this video makes me really want to try a full on 2 week juice cleanse and see how I feel after. I really want to detox, especially to get rid of my once a week headache. So, my goal is to do a 2 week juice fast, starting in the next month or so. I will keep you all updated. At the same time I would love for you to watch this video and see if it’s something you might be interested as well.
It will be hard at first, but the benefits sound wonderful. Remember, if you start a juice diet, or fast, make sure to check with your doctor to see if it’s something that will work for you.
So why should you do a juice fast? Maybe you want to lose weight or possibly get rid of your health issues. Maybe you are tired of all those medication pills, possibly you want to have a ton of energy, or maybe you just want to be as healthy possible? You could just want to do it for your kids, your spouse, or your future? All of these are great reasons why you should think about giving it a try.
If you do juice, make sure you buy organic fruits and vegetables. Not all fruits and veggies have to be organic, Organic Diet Buddy has an amazing app and website that is easy to use and tells you everything you need to know about what you need to buy organically.
If you do start a juice fast, let us know and send us your photos throughout and we will post them to inspire others.
Good on you! I saw this movie while on a winter vacation and left housebound in Australia due to monsoon rains, flooding and road closures.
When we came home I did a 10 day juice fast using only organic juices and following recipes on his website. What an awesome experience. I lost 10 pounds and interestingly enough must have moved a lot of toxicities out of my body (stored in fat) as my vision became really poor for about a week after the cleanse and then it returned to normal again about 2 weeks later. It was like I was feeling pressure behind the eyes…….. I am looking forward to another 10 day cleanse in the future but in the meantime will not hesitate to do a one day juice cleanse each week to keep the weight down and really boost my body’s source of rich vitamins and minerals. Once you have done this……….. you really notice how intense the vitamin/mineral doses you are getting from organic raw juicing. Enjoy Dr. Nelson!!
