Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead

Australian businessman Joe Cross tipped the scale at 310 pounds when he realized he needed to regain control of his life. His solution? A 60-day juice fast. 

To do this, the 40-year-old traveled halfway around the world to America, home to some of the the fattest people in the world

Under the supervision of a doctor, Joe drank his way across the country while interviewing Americans about their diet and attitudes toward food.  

Joe's transformation and his quest to understand why people are electing to live an unhealthy lifestyle is chronicled in the film "Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead," released in 2010. 

Following the film's success, Joe founded Reboot Your Life, a health and wellness company that helps people lose weight by teaching them how to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into their diets. 

We downloaded the documentary on Netflix and have pulled out the highlights.
