Sunnies, Books & Palm Trees, Oh My!

By: Joe Cross

Last night wrapped up my week of book signing events in the beautiful sunshine state of Florida. It’s beautiful down here. I enjoyed a few walks on the beach to get my cardio in and met nearly 300 people who made this trip a memorable one. You can tell these people live in sunshine almost year round — they are all happy! At each event everyone welcomed me with open arms, and I can’t thank all of you enough for making Florida feel like home for these past few days. Here’s a look back at some of this week’s highlights from the book signing events. Next stop, Texas! See the full Book Tour schedule so I can meet you too!

Barnes & Noble — Miami, FL

We had a nice crowd at Barnes & Noble in Miami. Nearly 50 people joined me for a night of book signing, hearing more about my journey and answering their questions.

B&N Miami Crowd

Great crowd — thanks for coming out!

Jen and Joel Wilson, who are friends with our success story David Bergman, came to our event with lots great success to share. Jen jumped right into a Reboot and lost 30 pounds (and has kept it off for 2 years) and feels great. Her husband, Joel, began to follow her footsteps and together they have made lifestyle changes! Keep up the great work!

Here I am with Jen & Joel Wilson!

This was crazy. While I was doing my thing in the Barnes & Noble Miami, this lovely lady Marsha Stroba was browsing books downstairs, she hears my voice and realizes I’m in the store! She had no idea I would be there! Marsha has lost over 200 pounds and cured herself from diabetes…and it all started with Juicing and Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead! Amazing things happen on tour!

Marsha Stroba

So glad I got to meet Marsha!


TAMPA — Hosted by Tracee Sloan from

Tracee put on an incredible event. Huge thanks to her and the vendors who helped run such a lovely event — Squeeze Juice Works, Trusted Root, and Mother Kombucha who all shared samples before and after the event. There was about 160 people so I was blown away by the amount of support.

Awesome Samples

Here they are handing out the AMAZING samples.

Mario Palmer Success Story

Success Story, Mario Palmer lost 100 lbs and is now looking to inspire others. Thanks for coming by!


ORLANDO — Skyebird Juice Bar
This event had a great vibe from start to finish — out front there is a big garden and downstairs is the Skyebird Juice Bar with some amazing options to choose from. The event was held upstairs in a very airy room and the book signing and photos were taken outside on the porch as the sun was going down. About 60 people came out for this one, and I thank all of them for a wonderful evening.

How cool is this juice bar?

Bookmark It Team -- the Hosts

A big thanks to the ladies from Bookmark It for having Fully Charged available for purchase at the event.

I got to meet Jay Alvarez, a soccer player who began changing his diet 2 years ago by adding juice. Since he has lost 15-20 lbs has seen improved performance and cleared his skin – great success!

Another HUGE thanks to Reboot Success Story, Bobby Brennan, and the folks at Raw Juicing and Detox for sending over a nice supply of juices from their juice bar! This was a nice treat to wake up to!

Joe Cross

More than 20 million people around the world watched Joe Cross juice his way across America, losing 100 pounds and getting off medication in Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. The film ignited a juicing movement. Viewers around the world have been inspired to start juicing, lose weight and get healthy - and as a result of the film over 370 million glasses of fresh juice have been consumed, 370,000 tons of fruit and vegetables consumed, more than 24.8 million pounds of weight lost, and over 220,000 people are now medication free. Joe's second film, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 was released in November 2014. Through his journey and the lives of the people he meets throughout the film Joe shares all that he's learned about how to stay healthy in an unhealthy world, revealing that most of us really do have more control over of our health than we think - and that none of us are perfect, especially Joe himself! His book, The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet, hit the New York Times' best seller list in March 2014, and the companion guide The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet Cookbook launched that summer.
