I recently watched a Joe Cross Film called Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. Have you seen it? My brother recommended it to me as something he thought would be helpful for me to watch. My brother has been on his own fitness journey for the past couple of years and you can check out his results story here complete with before and after pictures, on the Beachbody Message Board – it is impressive and very inspiring. In fact let me just show you his before and after because I am just so very proud of him:
So getting back to the film… it’s a documentary that follows Joe through his journey to take control over his health and try to heal his body through raw juices. He spent 60 days eating nothing but raw juices with incredible results, not only losing over 100 lbs, but also completely healing his body. It’s very interesting and if you are looking to lose some weight, or are struggling with illness, high blood pressure, high cholesterol etc… you might find something here that will inspire you to take control of your life. You also meet Phil, who was inspired by Joe to change his own life as well. You will want to check out the film to see his amazing results too!
I decided to see what a 10 day juice fast could do for me. I had my doubts – I mean I have three other people that I need to fix meals for – how can a person have only juice and still be around other people that are eating??? But like my brother said – “It’s only 10 days, not a month, not a year – just 10 days.”
Okay – right it is only 10 days. I decided to do it.
I am now 20 days into my 10 day juice fast and I can’t believe how amazing I feel – Yes, that’s right, I felt so good that I decided to keep going. You might be wondering if I am hungry… yes, I am – but it’s not unbearable. I actually feel pretty satisfied, and unusually energetic! In fact the increase in energy was noticeable by the middle of day two! Even my kids are willing to have a taste of every drink I make, and have been surprised at how good they taste.
I have had one illness after another these past two years and this might be just the thing my immune system needs to get my body back on the right track. In fact – over the past twenty days, both of my kids have come home with colds and sore throats and for the first time in a long time – I didn’t catch it!
If you are feeling run down, keep catching everything that you come in contact with or suffer from diet related illnesses – maybe this could be the thing that will turn your heath around. It gives your body the time and energy to focus solely on healing. You can read amazing results stories by doing a search for raw juicing.
I have been doing a lot of research on what exactly is going into our foods these days, and let me tell you it is scary! Unless you are eating organic, you may not have any idea what is really in or on your food. Things that I think the human body probably isn’t equipped to digest, which could be the cause of the ever increasing diseases that are effecting our nation.
If you have a chance to watch the movie I mentioned at the beginning of this post, I would love to hear your thoughts! If you are looking for a coach to help you through your own health and fitness journey – here is my brothers link.
