If Joe Did It So Can You!
100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path, laid out before him that wouldn’t end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn’t far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe’s personal mission to regain his health.
With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long-term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body’s ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. Across 3,000 miles Joe has one goal in mind: To get off his pills and achieve a balanced lifestyle.
While talking to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, it’s at a truck stop in Arizona where Joe meets a truck driver who suffers from the same rare condition. Phil Staples is morbidly obese weighing in at 429 lbs, a cheeseburger away from a heart-attack. As Joe is recovering his health, Phil begins his own epic journey to get well.
What emerges is nothing short of amazing – an inspiring tale of healing and human connection. Part road trip, part self-help manifesto, FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD defies the traditional documentary format to present an unconventional and uplifting story of two men from different worlds who each realize that the only person who can save them is themselves.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
- 'It is remarkable how well your body functions on juice alone! Shows how much we really over eat! I get sick of people voicing their concerns about how it's unhealthy to do this and that it may be dangerous, when I am sitting infront of them with clear complexion, shiny eyes a sense of calm and serenity and a heap of energy. How much more proof do they need? This experience changed me for the better and I am proud I had the will power to do it. If Joe and Phil could do it for 60 days, I can find the will power to do it for 15 days. Joe and Phil you are an inspiration. All the best everyone this reboot is truly worth it.'- Alyssa L. - Sydney, Aust.
- 'The documentary made me laugh and it made me cry. You truly touched peoples lives and were a catalyst that led them to make positive changes. I am glad to have met you and proud to know you. Your story will inspire so many people."-Melanie W. - New York, NY
- 'What an amazing film Joe, congratulations. Imagine if everyone who saw 'Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead' could turn their life around like Phil, he is so courageous and an inspiration to us all. Your film will certainly help make the world a healthier place, one vegetable at a time!. I know what I'll be buying my hubby for his birthday next month!'- Hadley B. - Sydney, Aust.
- 'To me this is not an end, but really a beginning. I did not expect this to change much more than my eating habits for a few days ... boy was I wrong! This has changed every aspect for me, energy, playing with my kids, realizing just how boring TV really is and how much time was wasted watching it! There was a whole life out there waiting for me to jump back in and reboot helped me do that, so thank you'- Lisa M. - Nanuet, NY
