Joe’s Journal: Day 58 – I Could Go for Another 40 Days

By: Joe Cross

Wow, here I am. Two more full days to get through (not counting the rest of today!). It’s crazy to think that 57 days ago today, I was laying in bed, with an aching headache, irritability through the roof, and just flat-out miserable. Now I feel as if I don’t even know that Joe anymore. I feel like I am on top of the world and could just keep juicing to make sure I always feel this way!

Don’t get me wrong. I was looking forward to eating. But there was a part of me that was thinking, “I could go another forty days.” My body loved the rest I was giving it, and the peace of mind that accompanied the fast was something I would have gladly savored for longer. Being unable to fully enjoy the tranquility a Reboot produces because the whole thing was being recorded was a personal sacrifice I had made. True inner peace is a very rare commodity, so when you go deep into the Reboot process, it is a special gift to enjoy and embrace. Rebooting can put you in a very soulful space that allows you to reflect on the deeper mysteries of the world and your place in it. You switch yourself off as a consumer, which enables you to look at life, food and all the rest of it in a much more objective way.

In subsequent Reboots, I have allowed myself to really get into that sense of serenity without a camera following me around every step of the way. Have you been following my past journal entries? Make sure you catch up here.  I’m sharing these thoughts with you as part of the 2nd Anniversary celebration of Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead so I hope you are either able to relate or be inspired by my journal entries. Don’t miss out on the other pieces to this celebration:

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.
