Product Description

Product Description

Joe Cross found himself, at age 40, weighing a whopping 300 plus pounds, and on a daily diet of the steroid Prednisone to manage the painful autoimmune condition that was making his life miserable. He decided to make a major change, so he did something radical: he decided to embark on a sixty-day "Reboot" to give his body a chance to detoxify and heal itself. For two straight months, he drank only fresh fruit and vegetable juices - no solid food of any kind, no soda, no coffee, no alcohol. He decided to turn his Reboot into a journey across the U.S. and bring a film crew along to capture him talking with the people he met along the way, sharing his experience (and his juice). He made a hugely inspirational film about the experience, also called Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. This book details his journey.

Includes foreword by Joel Fuhrman, M.D. and afterword by Dean Ornish, M.D.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read! 13 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After watching the film by Joe Cross I was compelled to buy the book as it does go into more detail than the edited tv version. It makes for interesting reading and leaves you feeling inspired after reading his story.

There are useful recipes included using fresh ingredients that are easy to find locally, so there are no excuses for not giving it a go :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Joe Cross is a legend. 4 May 2013
By M. Howe
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Two people have completely turned my life around. One is Jason Vale who wrote 'Slim for Life - Freedom from the diet trap and the other is Joe Cross whose film and book both named Fat Sick & Nearly Dead led me to what is now day 47 of a 60 juice fast. I've lost over 5 stone in weight and have not felt this good for years. If you was only buying one I would buy the DVD in preference to the book but that doesn't stop this book from being excellent reading material.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lifesaver 23 July 2013
By sevs26
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a real eye opener and a must read for anyone who is unwell or just doesn't feel that they are fulfilling their lives to the maximum. It is one of a few books that I have read that has really stopped me in my tracks and made me rethink my lifestyle. It confirms all that Jason Vale tells us to do......so thank you guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars dieting 24 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback
If you're over weight this is definitely the diet to follow, in a just a month I've lost 21lbs due to his regime, it's not difficult, buy a good juicer buy the fruit and veg and away you go, it's ss simple as that.

It's the twist in the tail that makes this film really special. Joe Cross 'juiced' his way back to health after suffering for years from an auto-immune disease and obesity. A chance meeting at a truck stop during his road-trip across America changes the life of Phil - a fat, sick and nearly dead truck driver. I love this film because it's so inspirational and a times very funny too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brave and informative 25 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was touching and funny in equal measure. For someone to put themselves so on the line publicly is not an easy thing to do, and this guy does it in spades. It's not the sort of experience everyone could do, or in fact, even afford to do, taking two months to cross America while just consuming juice is an extreme way to go about things, but it certainly worked for Joe Cross. Having read the book, I watched the film, and it brought it even more to life. Great book. Worth a read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, but short 4 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading about Joe's story, but there's not a lot of content for the price - feels more like a magazine than a book.
