Joe Gives Thanks

By: Joe Cross

G’Day Rebooters,

Given that today is Thanksgiving, I’d like to share a few things I’m thankful for with you. When I sat down to think about this, in between my Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2 Tour events in the UK & Ireland  that are taking place right now, I started writing the usual suspects: my mum and dad, my family, my friends, my Reboot team, everyone I work with in different areas of the world, you — my incredible community members who inspire me every day, and of course those of you who have supported the Reboot mission by buying our movies, reading our books, making recipes in your own kitchens from my cookbooks, downloading our apps to your phone, and sharing all of these with your friends. I guess you could say I have a lot to be thankful for on this holiday.

Then I started thinking and thanking big. I am thankful for autumn, for spring, for water, the sun, and for life.  I’m thankful for Alexander Graham Bell, Steve Jobs, the guy who invented ice cream, and I can’t forget the woman who invented chocolate!

And then I paused and realised, I can’t make a list of all the things I’m thankful for because I’d be writing for the rest of my time on this beautiful planet we call home. 

So I simply want to say that I’m truly thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

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.
