Joe’s Journal: Day 56 – Feeling Lighter in More Ways Than One

By: Joe Cross

Now that I touched on Phil’s journey a bit, I’d like to finish these next few days by sharing the last part of my journey.

We were back in the car, heading west across the vast deserts and highways of Nevada and nearing the border of California. The air was becoming noticeably warmer, and I was feeling quite a bit lighter in more ways than one. I’d now lost close to seventy pounds and had nearly weaned myself off the Prednisone – I was down to 3 mg. without a single new outbreak of urticaria. Moreover, my state of mind was nothing short of phenomenal. The sun radiated against a brilliant blue backdrop as I drove, the sort of optimistic sky that only exists in the farthest reaches of the American West. I welcomed the warmth and optimism as I prepared for the final day of my Reboot. I’d been doing it for so long that I didn’t quite know how to say goodbye.

My next destination was San Diego, where the plan was to play eighteen holes of golf on the same course that had been the scene of my health disaster nine years before. After that and another adventure I had up my sleeve, I’d rejoin the human race and start eating again.

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.
