Joe’s Journal: Day 29 – People Think I’m Crazy

By: Joe Cross

On this journey so far I’ve met a ton of folks who are pretty surprised I am doing this for 60 days.  One thing I find remarkable about people is they will say “Oh I could never do that!” without even giving it a try. I just don’t understand that. If you say you’re going to juice fast for 10 days and you make it seven it’s not “oh you’re a failure” it’s “good on you for trying”. If you do give it a go, be warned…your mates may think you’re crazy. “Joe, 60 days is seriously extreme. Just drinking juice? Really?”

Extreme yes, but let’s not forget I have had a debilitating disease for the past nine years where I’ve had to take Prednisone that comes with a bunch of unpleasant side effects.

I’m 41, I’m fat, and I’m sick. You don’t need to be Einstein to figure out what’s next…a trip to the grave! So I’m willing to take it to the extreme.

They’ll also say, Joe aren’t you hungry? Well much to their surprise…hunger is different than just having a big appetite! Learn how to tell the difference.

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.
