Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead is a story of one mans journey to get healthy by juicing his way around the United States. Along the way he takes the time to explain what he is doing to people he meets, and motivates several others to make a switch for themselves.
It’s an interesting and inspiring film. Being able to see the change take place in Joe over time is impressive, and as viewers we learn a lot as he transforms himself, gets off medication, and improves his health in front of our eyes.
Joe is doing what he calls a reboot with the juicing, and that is what we mostly see in this film. Beyond the juicing, Joe talks about making the move to a whole food plant based diet.
