In 2011, I released Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, a film that documents my personal journey to regain my health. Well, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can decrease the risk for things like cancers, cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes and mental illness. Number one: if you start juicing and eating more fruits and vegetables, you’re going to think more clearly. At the moment, Americans are only receiving 5% of their caloric intake from fruits and vegetables. Juicing offers us many health benefits, including a faster, more efficient way to absorb immune-boosting nutrients naturally found in fruits and vegetables. Some people juice to supplement their diets and others choose to just juice for a period of time.
If your juicer has more than one speed, don’t forget to shift down from high to low for softer fruits. Hard produce like apples or beetroot are processed on high and soft ones like spinach or cabbage are processed on low. Denise, you can make juice by using a high powered blender like a VitaMix and then straining the mixture through a nut milk bag.

And I am thinking about the possibility of a 7-10 day juice detox but have to be careful as I have type 2 diabetes, and heart failure.
Your show is a fantastic resource and I would like to write something about juicing radio on my blog in the future.
I’m really enjoying the content of your podcasts but the problems you are having with your Skype connection are tough to take.
JuicingRadio is a podcast aimed at motivating, inspiring and educating people who are interested in starting juicing, sustaining juicing or renewing their interest in juicing.
In my younger years I was addicted to training and fitness and sported a fine figure as a result. Within seconds I was hooked, screaming, “This guy is living my life!” In addition to my weight gain, my body too was starting to give out.
Like with other ‘fad diets,’ I knew I wasn’t strong enough to follow Joe’s routine of a juice fast – be that the full sixty days or just the ten. My juicing journey spanned a total of six weeks, was remarkably easy and yielded incredible results. For the first two weeks I swapped breakfast and lunch for juices, in the evening I had a big ‘healthy’ dinner. The great news is eating healthily inspired me in turn to do better in other areas in my life, specifically I decided to get myself back in the gym.
Having already lost so much weight I decided to drop down to just swapping one meal per day for a juice. I really don’t like calling juicing a ‘juice diet’ as it infers all the wrong connotations. Reboot’s Success Stories feature real stories from real people around the world who have changed their lives after completing a Reboot. Thank you for submitting your story, well done on your great success, you have inspired me to try again, this time with more patience and planning.
Amazing story the motivation to keep my on going with Juicing, My Doctor friend brought his Lady friend to my house she is a personal trainer and because I need a full knee replacement I must get the weight off before they will do the surgery.
I’m in a similar position, I too have a juice every day but eat fairly normal in the evening. People tell me I look really well but I would be happy to drop down to my ideal BMI weight, I’m roughly about 8kg away.
This is just the information I needed to read about replacing some of the weeks meals with juice.
While I am not doing the same diet and am doing the full juice fast (no cheat meals) his story is more than believable.
I wanted to ask though, did you just juice all your veggies and fruit together in one big batch or did you do a bunch of different juice recipes? Joe Cross was fat, sick, and nearly dead until he harnessed the power of juice to reboot his diet—and his life. Read an Excerpt The Reboot with Joe JUICE DIET LOSE WEIGHT, GET HEALTHY AND FEEL AMAZINGBy JOE CROSS Greenleaf Book Group Press Copyright © 2014 Reboot Holdings Pty Ltd All rights reserved. Overweight and frustrated, Joe took control of his health by incorporating fresh fruit and vegetable juices into his diet, ultimately losing the weight and achieving a balanced lifestyle.
Fruits and vegetables have also been credited with alleviating the day-to-day effects of painful, chronic conditions such as constipation, irritable bowel syndrome and migraines.
When you eat fruits and vegetables, that’s good for you, but it takes a little bit of energy to digest them. Whichever one you pick, trust me that you will be able to delight your palate and develop a love of fruits and veggies that you didn’t think was possible. It’s best to do all the preparation work of preparing your fruits and veggies before you start juicing.
I know lots of vegetarians and vegans who enjoy drinking veggie juices as part of their lifestyles.
All three of the podcasts I have listened to had major problems with breaking up when you are talking with your guest. In 2013, after attending Camp Reboot with Joe Cross from Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and 200 others Shane and Angie wanted to support, motivate and inspire juicers worldwide even more.
However, by the time I’d hit 30 I found myself married with new priorities at home, in a corporate job, sat in business class being wined and dined, etc.
I suffered all the usual symptoms of being overweight and unhealthy – tired, lethargic, etc – but was also starting to struggle with my ankles and knees, and had developed terribly dry skin on my back.
I couldn’t believe the weight had fallen off so quickly, particularly as I’d eaten so much. By this stage I no longer had to even think about how I would juice that day, it was as easy as swapping my morning cereal for a juice. Get inspired with their stories of weight loss, health improvements, lifestyle transformations, and more. As I said, I didn’t have the same strength and will power as Joe, but I did find a model that I could live to and that is the key. They motivate me to become a better person especially in terms of health and healthy lifestyle. Enabling JavaScript in your browser will allow you to experience all the features of our site.


ISBN: 978-1-62634-081-7 CHAPTER 1A WAY TO LIVE, NOT A WAY TO DIETWe're about to go on a journey together to Reboot your life, and I want to give you the information and tools that will make it as easy for you as possible. Each color family is rich in unique and important micronutrients that help protect our immune systems and keep our bodies strong, so it’s key to vary your fruits and veggies. Most commercial juices are pasteurized and processed, and lacking in nutrition compared to freshly juiced fruits and vegetables. When you put it down in a liquid form, it’s rapidly aborbed straight through your system to give you a powerful boost. I currently have a Fitbit and really like it, but will probably be getting the Flex as well.
Leslie set up the Juicing For Dummies facebook page which boasts over 5000 members and is one of the busiest most supportive online communities we have seen so far. Although this is not juicing related it is still very inspiring to listen to the interviews with people from all over the world who have lost huge amounts of weight. Chantel and her team make an excellent mean green!  If you are in Atlanta please go and check them out. My advice to you is try a large green juice for breakfast for 21 days and see how your body responds. Before I knew it, my work and home schedule had taken over my life and yes, inevitably I’d soon gained 15kg (33lb) of ‘blubber.’ Depressed as this made me feel, I could never find my way back. I thought this would be yet another fad that would cost me money, only to soon be resigned to the cupboard whilst I continued to wolf down pizzas and brownies. If I was going to commit to a serious change in my life then I needed to find my own sustainable model, for anyone else reading this I suggest that will also be the key to your own success.
I really didn’t find myself feeling hungry as I’d carry my juice around and continuously sip it through the day.
I’d dropped an incredible amount of weight without having to go without all the foods I love so much.
Of course by this stage I was lighter and getting fitter, so could push myself harder and longer in the gym. I have to say the best parts of juicing are the fact it’s so easy and the juices themselves are delicious. Reboots are not recommended for everyone, and before commencing a Reboot or any other nutritional or dietary regimen, you should consult with your qualified health care provider in order to assess any potential benefits or risks to you with consideration of your personal medical situation.
I actually sent this report in a while ago, Joe and his team I’m sure are inundated with similar stories so it does take time to get them all out there. This week, I have begun again, and am hoping with each day passing that I will be stronger than I am now, in less pain than I am now, and definitely thinner than I am now.
I did loose weight but ever since I’ve been juicing my weight has been dropping off very well.
Just about a year earlier I went to a conference where a Dr Edmiston (Australia) spoke and he advised a plan similar to yours, by starting off the day with a green juice, eating salad and protein for lunch and vegetables and protein for dinner. And here’s the (other) best part: Juicing is delicious and just as creative as baking or learning a new kind of cuisine. I like the option of being able to easily wear something on my wrist as opposed to clipping it or putting it in my pocket like the Fitbit. Periodically I’d try a new diet recommended by trainers and friends, as much as I might lose a few pounds I’d always put them back on very quickly as these ‘diets’ were just not realistic and not sustainable for the long term. Before it had even arrived I (by pure chance) stumbled across Joe’s Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. Aside from the inevitable tales of weight loss, it forced me to take a very stark look at my own lifestyle, particularly my diet. Again, as part of knowing myself, I realised that if I were to attempt to cut everything I like from my diet then juicing would feel like a ‘diet’ and I’d soon fall off the wagon.
I’ve included my Week 1 and Week 10 photos to demonstrate just how dramatic the change in my life has really been…which of course all began by a chance viewing of Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. As easy and quick as it is to make juices I prefer to make all mine in one batch on the weekend so I don’t have to think about it for the rest of the week.
You should also continue to work closely with your qualified health care provider if you intend to engage in a long-term Reboot.
I’ve now been at this for five months and still juice on almost a daily basis – if I can’t then I try to eat as cleanly as possible – and have kept up with the gym. When the world’s best doctors couldn’t find a magic “fix,” I knew I had to drastically change my lifestyle. I used to have trouble getting out of bed in the morning because I’d be aching and sore, but now I jump out and can’t wait to attack the day.
I knew of course that the food I was eating was making me fat, however when I was younger (and training) I considered my diet to be well balanced and healthy…how wrong I was! As such, the weekends were mine to have whatever I wanted – bacon and bagels for breakfast, big bars of chocolate, you name it, I ate it! Again, at the weekends I had whatever I wanted, including trips to the fast food restaurants.
Of course the only real downside to this experience has been the financial implications – it’s cost me a fortune to buy a brand new wardrobe! I then break them down by portion in to freezer bags, throw them in the freezer and take them out the night before as required.
I’m now back in as good a shape as I was when I was in my early 20’s and have far surpassed the ‘after photo’ displayed here.
By eating and drinking more fruits and vegetables, I successfully lost the weight and got myself off all prescription drugs.
After all, I don’t normally buy in to all this ‘mumbo jumbo!’ I’d previously watched ‘Supersize Me’ and despite its obvious and clear message, having stared at Big Mac’s for ninety minutes I was desperate for a McDonald’s! It dawned on me that if I didn’t make a permanent change NOW, in another twenty years or so I’ll be facing the same health issues I’m starting to see in my family and business colleagues. Now here’s the amazing part…I soon found my taste buds had been reset and I could no longer gorge myself on all this sugar and fat.
By the end of Week Six I’d lost a further 5kg (11lb), taking my total weight loss to 15kg (33lb)! It might sound strange but I still watch Fat, Sick & Nearly dead on a semi-regular basis in order to keep me motivated. Having said that, I’m once again off the wagon, and have my juicer out ready to start again.
By Sunday night I’d have to put down the pack of cookies and reach for a juice as I was quite literally craving fresh vegetables! Don’t forget of course that by this stage I’d been back in the gym for six weeks building muscle, muscle as we know weighs more than fat.


We all tend to laugh off our own mortality, but it only takes one scare to make you think twice. Probably the starkest indication that I was changing occurred at the end of Week 1 (Sunday night). Had I not been building muscle then my weight loss would have been greater, although the results wouldn’t necessarily have been better.
I simply put my frozen juices into a tupperware and throw them in my suitcase, they then slip so nicely in to the mini-bar fridge and keep me away from the temptation of the chocolates!
Remember, I eat what I want at the weekends, however on this occasion the burgers, fries and chocolate cakes managed to infiltrate my working week. I was so inspired that I began to preach to all my friends and family, compelling them to watch Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, and committed to start juicing immediately. I knew I was heading back in to my healthy regime in the morning so went to bed on a fully belly of pizza…only to have one of the worst night’s sleep I can remember in recent years – I woke up three times desperate for water having consumed all the excess salt, was generally uncomfortable and woke up in the morning feeling like my old, heavy and lethargic self. Already many of my friends and family have asked me for help so they can aim towards the same results.
On the third day I said enough was enough, put on Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, got my juice out of the mini-bar and started doing pushups in the room. Now, everyone gets sick sometimes—and many people become gravely ill without any rhyme or reason. Basically, rolling back the clock to a time when human beings ate things that grew out of the ground, nourished by sunlight, and not tweaked in a lab or dyed an unnatural color. It turns out, I didn't need to do the two years—it ended up being 60 days of juicing and 90 days of juicing and plant-based food. It's been seven years since then, and I haven't taken any medication at all for my illness.
I rarely get sick, and I'm happy to admit that I was one of the leaders of the 70 percent camp.Are you ready to join me? If we look at the average modern Western diet, that total energy consumption can be divided into three parts:1. More than 60 percent of what we're eating for energy is in the form of processed foods, which are very low in nutrients.2.
But don't get too excited, because 3 percent of that figure is white potatoes, mostly in the form of french fries.What's wrong with the average Western diet is the balance. The foods we need the most, those that are healthiest for us, we are eating the least of—by far. Instead of getting most of our calories from foods that provide our bodies with the fuel they need and the nutrients that promote healthy living (which really means plant-based foods in their natural form), we are loading up on high-calorie foods that are low in nutritive value.
There is a reason that "junk" foods earned that name—they can easily lead to overconsumption of calories or energy, which leads to unwanted weight gain, plus their lack of nutritive value leaves our bodies overfed and undernourished.
And what's crazy is that most highly processed junk foods were designed both to be quickly digested and to make us crave more and more of them. And when I did, my body paid the price.Now, there's nothing wrong with spending a little time in the fun part of town. But the problem is that one day you're a healthy ten-year-old with enough energy to drive your parents crazy, and the next day you're forty and you can't touch your toes—or even see them because your stomach's in the way.
The solution is to flip the average diet around, spending the majority of your time in the "essential" part of town to give your body the foods it needs to operate at its best. Since processed foods are engineered so that your body will crave more and more of them, you will never feel satisfied, no matter how much you eat.
But because of the way our palates, senses, and appetites have been reengineered by cheap, processed foods, we've forgotten that fruits and vegetables should be fun.
Starting to crave fruits and vegetables instead of that fast-food burger and fries makes it easier to break the junk-food cycle than trying to do it via sheer willpower. Believe me, because I tried white-knuckling it a dozen times and all it did was drive me back into the comforting arms of Sara Lee, Ben & Jerry, and Dr.
Our bodies need both of these, but most people consume far too many macronutrients and not enough micronutrients.Simply put, macronutrients consist of proteins, carbohydrates, and fats, which are found in abundance in processed foods, dairy products, and red meat.
Micronutrients, on the other hand, are all the vitamins, minerals, and phyto (plant) nutrients that help our bodies function effectively and therefore help ward off disease. In particular, phytonutrients have properties that help defend our bodies against toxicity. Plant-based foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, spices, herbs, and such, are rich in micronutrients. Thousands of phytonutrients have been identified in plants, including antioxidants, which are essential in fighting infection and disease by protecting cells. We all know oranges contain vitamin C, but they also have about 169 other phytonutrients, all of which work together to boost our immune systems. If we are addicted to sugar, caffeine, cigarettes, alcohol, or salt, it won't be long before that addiction causes trouble. While there will still be short-term satisfaction in spending all our time in the fun part of town, we're going to start paying for all that fun by getting sick.As soon as I was on my own, and until I was forty, I lived on a seesaw of gaining weight, feeling sicker and sicker and more and more depressed and anxious, then temporarily shedding a few pounds by going on a diet, only to put it all back on again.
I was a healthy baby and a healthy kid, with well-educated parents who worked in the healthcare profession—my mother is a trained nurse and my father a prominent orthopedic surgeon. Our kitchen was filled with healthy food and some treats, and my parents made sure my siblings and I had access to great nutrition. But as soon as I was on my own, I squandered my good fortune by living an unhealthy life.Even as a child, I used food for comfort, going all the way back to when I was in elementary school and was frequently a victim of bullying. I'd go home after school and would sneak a Coke and a big bowl of sugary cereal to feel better.
By combining the principles of a fast with the simple healthfulness of a plant-based diet, and sustaining it for a period of time, my body began to recalibrate itself.
I rebooted my system, jump-starting it via a 60-day juice fast, and suddenly I was alive again—more alive than I'd ever been before. And that is what I'm going to help coach you through, if you're willing.What is a Reboot?A Reboot is different from simply counting calories or going on a diet. It's a powerful way to hydro-boost your system by drinking or eating 100 percent liquid sunshine or restorative plant-based energy.
It's the nutrition found in plant food that provides us with energy and gives our bodies what they need to operate most efficiently because, ironically, while many of us are overeating, we are often still starved of real nourishment. It's easy to let months go by and to realize all you've eaten during that time is junk food.
