Joe’s Journal: Day 10 – Tackling My (Food) Demons Head On!

By: Joe Cross

It’s day 10 and I’m packing up to head back to New York City. I’m beginning to feel the autumn chill starting to set in. The season is changing and so am I! I’m feeling good. I’m doing my best not to weigh myself every single day (errr…multiple times a day). But I must admit, when you’ve lost 29 pounds in just under 10 days…that’s right, 29 pounds (13 kilos)…I’ve gone from 309 to 280 lbs (140 to 127 kilos)…it sure does help to keep the motivation up.

I will stick with this. I know I can do it.

I’ve been coming to the U.S. off and on for the last 35 years. I even lived here as a kid. It’s like a second home to me. I reckon Americans are super friendly. I also love American food. If I’m going to change the way I live my life, I’m the sort of bloke who likes to tackle my demons head on and I couldn’t think of a better place to do that than here in the U.S…the home of the hamburger.

In those moments where my confidence flags, I’ll rely on talking other people who’ve gone through the same thing. When I get to New York tomorrow, I’m going to spend a good deal of time talking to other New Yorkers who’ve tried juicing, fasting and running toward fruits and vegetables full steam ahead.

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.
