I just watched Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead on Netflix Instant tonight. That in itself is pretty incredible for a number of reasons. I’m crazy cheap but decided I was sick and tired of hearing all about how amazing Netflix is and not being able to experience it for myself. That and they came out with a new pricing model today so I decided to give it a try. All I have to say is I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. Now I have to cut my cable bill or another cost because that is how I roll. Watching the documentary was also incredible for me because I’ve never been one to watch many movies. I want to do so many things in life, movies haven’t ever been much of a priority for me. Heck I’ve never seen Braveheart and lots of other great movies people tell me about which I’m sure I’d love, but I personally like to spend my time doing other things. If I do watch movies my absolute favorites are ones I’ll learn something from, so I absolutely love documentaries. Yes I also love my superhero and Sci-fi movies too so I know what you are thinking. OK so enough about Neflix and why I don’t watch movies and onto the movie review part of this post!
Fat, Stick and Nearly Dead was very educational, very inspiring, very low budget, and very enjoyable. I embedded the trailer above which doesn’t do it justice. It was so inspirational I paused the movie twice to juice some strawberries after the first 30 minutes and then a small bag of carrots about 20 minutes after that. I used to be into organic foods, juicing, exercise, and mental health but life just consumed me. This documentary was a great reminder to keep what is important in perspective. Christina didn’t drink much juice before she met me but I love juice (Odwalla in particular). Bob and Christina, kept thinking about you all throughout the movie (Bob because of his shakes). The movie was very life changing and what is most interesting is every ailment they were suffering from went away after only 60 days after drinking 100% juice for those days. They had skin rashes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, migraines, and they all went away. Now of course you can’t and probably shouldn’t only drink juice but as a supplement and cleanser it seems to work very well. Hope you get a chance to watch it and Bob and Christina (and of course Barbara) I want to have you over for dinner and a movie to show it to you some night. Very motivational!
