Joe’s Journal: Day 12 – A New Outlook in New York City

By: Joe Cross

I’m sharing these journal entries to celebrate the 2nd anniversary of Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead and to relive my 60 Day Reboot. And don’t miss out on our anniversary celebration – we’re giving away a Breville Juice Fountain Crush a Day for 60 days. We have 49 more juicers to give away so don’t miss out.

Now let’s take a look at Day 12 of my 60 Day Reboot…

October 23, 2007

Day 12: The smells seeping from the bagel, empanada, fast food and falafel shops and the clanging sounds of happy hour cocktails were still seductive of course. Smoke, on which rose scents of hot dogs and roasted almonds, billowed from the carts of street vendors. But never mind. I had my juice. Okay I won’t lie, it was hard. It was hard to not window shop past Magnolia Bakery and go in and buy a cupcake. However, I was not hungry nor really that tempted.

A curious thing happened to me when I revisited New York. I began to see a completely different side of it, one that had nothing to do with eating, playing, or working. I was able to reconcile myself to this vastly different way of inhabiting New York by setting out across the city in search of the best juice bars and farmers markets.

More than 20 million people around the world watched Joe Cross juice his way across America, losing 100 pounds and getting off medication in Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. The film ignited a juicing movement. Viewers around the world have been inspired to start juicing, lose weight and get healthy - and as a result of the film over 370 million glasses of fresh juice have been consumed, 370,000 tons of fruit and vegetables consumed, more than 24.8 million pounds of weight lost, and over 220,000 people are now medication free. Joe's second film, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 was released in November 2014. Through his journey and the lives of the people he meets throughout the film Joe shares all that he's learned about how to stay healthy in an unhealthy world, revealing that most of us really do have more control over of our health than we think - and that none of us are perfect, especially Joe himself! His book, The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet, hit the New York Times' best seller list in March 2014, and the companion guide The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet Cookbook launched that summer.
