Hello, I'm a bit late with this, I've been watching yoootooob again, someone on a forum posted a link to a video which was 1 hour 30 mins long, I stuck with it as it was so interesting. If you are into healthy eating and food nutrition and losing weight, you might like to watch. It's a documentary about an Australian guy called Joe Cross who described himself  as fat, sick, and nearly dead. He decided he must do something about it because he didn't want his life to be dependent on the tablets he had to take every day. 
His plan was to take himself away from his usual environment and travel around America for 60 days while living entirely on juices. As time went on you could see the changes in him. He lost a whole lot of weight, he looked and felt better, and it looked like he was reversing the aging process. 
As well as the benefits to his slimmer frame he was also able to stop taking his medication. This was all done with the support of a medical doctor, who monitored his blood throughout the experiment. 
As well as it being a story of one man's determination to change his unhealthy lifestyle, there is a twist to it about three quarters of the way through. I won't tell you what it is in case you want to watch it, but it is so emotional it brought tears to my eyes. As well as being a heartwarming story, it is also educational, describing exactly what happens to your body if you choose to eat all the wrong kind of foods. It is well worth watching if you have the time.Switch the tele off when there is nowt on and watch this instead.

This is my dinner tonight, no cooking required. Lettuce, carrot, pickled onions, tomato, chickpeas, portion of quiche, cottage cheese, and dips. Lovely jubbly.

  1. What a co-incidence. When I was in the bookshop 'The Works' 2 wks ago I saw his book. Reboot with Joe Cross. It was £12.99 reduced to £3.99, so I bought it. There are loads of smoothie & juice recipes and a very good section at the beginning on health/fruit/veg etc. I have been glued to it as am interested in the various combinations. Will watch the prog you saw as soon as I can.

  2. Hi there! I saw a documentary on this guy and it really is an amazing story. Very inspirational. Your supper looks healthy. I love your blog. I read it every evening. Linda from Alabama

  3. Love quiche, so would definitely like this dinner. Will come back to watch the video.

  4. Nothing on the tv? That will be Saturday evening then.

  5. Your dinner looks good Ilona.
    Sad that I cannot watch the video, apparently it is not available in my country. (US).
    I will see what I can find on the internet as your reader Linda mentioned she had seen a documentary.
    I look forward each day to reading your blog, you always have something interesting to say and are very upbeat. You cheer me along everyday.
    Love from Pam in Texas.

    1. You can watch it on youtube. Go to Youtube and search out "Fat Sick and Nearly Dead", I'm pretty sure that is where I watched it, otherwise I watched it on Netflix.

  6. Look up Dr. Joel Fuhrman as he is the doctor involved in the program this man did. He may have a link on his site. We have seen it on tv in Canada. The implortant thing with his juicing is he makes them fresh and with only veg and fruit.


I will not be intimidated by the stupid comments coming my way. You have the problem. I am happy in my own skin.
