Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead: How Fruits & Vegetables Changed My Life by Joe CrossJoe 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.

My Juice Fast Plan and Results: Weight Loss and Productivity
I'd never made a film before -- much less one in which I am the subject. I made it without any previous film experience, not to mention any idea of what I was getting myself into. I had left high school at age 17 and got a job working for a bank on Wall Street in Australia. After 5 years of learning how to trade the worlds markets I went out on my own and became a day trader, way before it was fashionable. I got bored with that so I decided to exercise my entrepreneurial skills and founded a number of companies, some with success and some without. Then I decided to invest in other entrepreneurs companies with my own money, again some with success and some without. Throughout my professional life I had experienced the highs and the lows but making a film was by far the greatest challenge I have ever faced.
