An in-depth review of “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” (2010) documentary
When it comes to our food, the old saying “you are what you eat” actually makes perfect sense when you stop and think about it. Obviously if you eat a greasy bacon double cheeseburger you won’t turn into a giant burger, but as it’s classed as junk food, you will begin to look and feel like junk if you eat foods of that nature on a regular basis. On the flip side, if you eat fresh, healthy, and wholesome foods, you will look and feel great. Australian filmmaker and businessman Joe Cross however, actually took things a step further, and drank fresh, healthy and nutritious foods in liquid juice form, and he documented the whole thing on camera, and created a smash hit documentary that is helping people all over the world to look, feel, and be healthier as a result. That documentary is ‘Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead’.
Starring: AJ Michalka, Jesse McCartney, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Alyson Stoner, Brian Krause.
