I have been meaning to post these for a while! The Victoria’s Secret youtube channel has uploaded some workout videos featuring the models and their trainers. Enjoy
Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead is a documentary about two men who were both overweight and suffering from an autoimmune disease called chronic urticaria. The disease had no cure and forced them both to take a plethora of pills every day to try and stop them breaking out in hives. They both went on a green juice fast for 60 days and documented their progress. All I can say is..wow, I am blown away by their results!
Joe Cross is an Australian filmmaker who had originally planned to document only his own fasting progress while on an American road trip. He interviewed Americans along his journey about their lifestyles and diets. It was during one of these interviews that he met a morbidly obese truck driver named Phil Staples. Phil coincidentally suffered from the same rare disease as Joe. Phil says he isn’t ready to change his lifestyle and Joe leaves him his business card.
Joe went on to complete his fast and completely turned his life around. He lost a ridiculous 45kg in four months and went off all his medication completely. He now looks like a different person and is just glowing with life and energy!
I really loved how honest Joe was during his fast. He never pretended it was an easy thing to do. While his camera crew were out to dinner after filming, he would sit in the car alone.
Joe returned back to Australia and out of the blue he received a phone call from the American truck driver Phil. He admits that he is ready to change his life and doesn’t want to accept his inevitable early death from weight-related illness anymore.
I had to fight back tears when I heard the voicemail Phil left. You could hear the sadness and desperation in his voice.
Joe flew back to America and guided Phil on a 7 day juice fast. Phil decided on his own to extend his fast to 60 days and goes on to lose a ridiculous amount of weight! He began exercising every day and totally transforms his life.
After his fast, Phil decided to continue eating a plant-based diet and after 10 months had lost 91.5kg (202lbs).
Both men now have more energy than ever before. Their skin is glowing and they no longer require any medication.
Witnessing the weight loss transformations and health benefits of the two men left me feeling so inspired and excited that I actually had trouble falling asleep.
Obviously, this is something I need to do! I am mentally preparing myself to go on a fruit and vegetable diet for 7 days to detox and cleanse my body. If the men in the documentary can do it for 60 days..surely 7 days will be a breeze.
You can watch the documentary for free at www.jointhereboot.com.
I am going to do a few videos while on the detox so you can join in or just follow my progress if you like!
Have you done a fruit and vegetable detox before? What were your results like? I’d love to know!
Can’t wait to watch this!!
“The problem is, we are not eating food anymore. We are eating food-like products”
I hope this doesn’t offend anybody but I found it pretty funny! Sometimes we just have to stop being so serious and just laugh at how ridiculous the ‘Obesity Epidemic’ has become
