This movie is life altering. For several years I've been contemplating the value of juicing, and a plant based diet. When I watched this movie, it gave me the hard and fast verification that ANYONE would need to see the benefits of (A) eating more greens, and (B) the benefits of juicing.

This movie and one other (forks over knives) should be recommended to any one who wants to know the truth about food and it's relationship to health.

After watching the movie I went on a juice fast and with in two weeks I'd cured several nagging ailments ( a low grade dental infection, and toenail fungus) including high blood pressure.

If I were able to give this movie 10 stars on a 5 star scale, it still wouldn't be enough. If your reading this review and thinking of buying this movie than PLEASE DO! You'll never regret it. This is a great eye opener!!! AND you'll probably change your life after you watch it. It's simply great, great, great........

I absolutely loved this DVD!
I now constantly look at people as either Fat Sick and Nearly Dead and think how I wonder if this information could save their life and if they would possibly be willing to make the effort to do something for themselves? I have tried to suggest that this video holds the answer and several people I know have at least watched it. However, so far these few people say to me they could never go without the garbage they eat daily and are just too weak to attempt a juice fast even for 3-days! I am totally disgusted by the attitude of so many of these sick fat and nearly dead people and have determined they deserve to be where they are!I am a vegan living in Nebraska if you get my point?
This is the most amazing and inspiring video imaginable on the subject! I'm absolutely high on it! I have done a 10 day juice fast and have completely adjusted my mind to where I will not even want to cheat with that piece of bread or sweet. I did not need to lose more than 10 pounds, so my body condition was not as grave as most people in Nebraska. Now, I'm completely on track and will never go back to stupid eating choices. This video with its message, will make you stronger! I cannot praise it enough or the good it has done for me and my family! Well, I'm off to work in the garden to grow all I can to keep my juicing cost down. If you only juice once a day and sustitute one meal a day with a juice diet that is perfect once you get to a normal body weight!
This video will change many lives for the better! BUY IT!!!

I viewed this film about 5 months ago and was amazed at 2 things. 1) How well Joe did at getting his health back on track. & 2) How few people were willing to even listen to his story.

The upside is that he turned his life around. And the lives of a few people he met on his journey. The down side is that it is an all juice diet that would not satisfy most of us for the long term.

That said though, there are many very worthwhile pieces of good information and thought provoking suggestions that make watching this film worth the time.

Overweight Australian filmmaker Joe Cross attempts to wrestle back control of his failing health during a cross-country trek in which he engages everyday Americans in discussions about food and obesity in this lighthearted documentary addressing a deadly serious subject. Clocking in at 310 pounds and pumped full of steroids to battle a debilitating autoimmune disorder, Cross realized that he would soon be dead if he didn't make some major lifestyle changes. But pharmaceuticals were only treating his symptoms, and no doctor seemed capable of providing the long-term care and support it would take to turn his life around. Desperate, Cross loads up his car with a juicer and a generator, and pledges to survive on nothing but fresh fruit and vegetable juice for 60 days. Not long after his journey begins, Cross quickly realizes that he's well on his way to ending his growing dependence on prescription drugs. His body has begun to heal itself, and as the process continues, Cross attempts to prove just how empowering it can be to take responsibility for our own health.

Truth that can save your life.

GREAT DVD! Truly life changing, potentially life saving information. Like Joe, I too had health problems that nearly killed me and put me into a coma. It was thru the power of fruits and vegetables that I am not only alive but am in the best health that I have ever been in. If I had only understood earlier in life the power that lies in the tens of thousands of phytonutients and antioxidents that are only found in fresh raw fruits and vegetables I could have helped myself years before it got to the point of having to take over $1700 worth of meds each month. The problem with juicing however is not only the ridiculous amount of work and cost involved and the fact that it is not portable and cannot be continued indefinitely. Thank God I had a Dr. from my church tell me where i can get 25 different fresh, raw, vine ripened fruits, vegetables and berries that I now take daily without all the mess and fuss that costs less than 1/4 of what it costs to juice each day. Since adding it to my diet, I am grateful to say that I am not on even one prescription anymore and have lost 63 lbs in the process. I am not allowed to post links to where to get it in this review, but will share the info with anyone that contacts me by clicking on my name above. All in all i highly recommend this video to any and all who are sick and tired of being sick and tired and are willing to do something about it.

My life has been changed for the better after viewing this film !

This is a fantastic DVD. It tells about 2 guys who went on a juice fast for 60 days to regain their health and lose weight. Everyone should see this DVD who is overweight and even those who are not overweight. This DVD has inspired me to juice fast at least one or two days a week for the health benefits, as I am not overweight and am already a vegan. After seeing this DVD, even my husband is trying to juice fast at least one day a week, which is a real accomplishment, as he needs to lose at least 10 lbs. It is amazing how healthy and good I feel when juicing. Order the DVD, you will not be disappointed, unless you are a die hard Standard American Diet person and are not open to changing your eating habits to improve your health----then you will be disappointed. A big thanks to Joe Cross for making the film.
It has changed my life for the better.
