Fat, Sick, Sad, Nearly Dead

There’s a fascinating documentary on Netflix that many of you have seen “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” that chronicles the life of an Australian man who, like a lot of us, lived a very unhealthy lifestyle.  His days were filled with fast foods, his nights with expensive, rich, fatty foods and alcohol.  Sounds familiar, doesn’t it.
Since moving to California, I have really embraced several practices that seem to accompany the healthy people of our great state.  The one I love the most, though, is juicing.  I love it.  I love the taste.  I love the way it makes me feel.  So I thought it may be time to try the dreaded juice fast.
I contacted a friend who is making me my juices, through his company Local Juice, Co and I’m going to be starting Sunday.  With some time on my hands it seems like the perfect time to make some healthy changes.  I’ve been eating more fast food than well…a radio show host.  I’ve been smoking too much.  Drinking too much.  All of it.  It’s like the Drive By Truckers sang “I ain’t living like I should”
 And you’ll notice I added the word “Sad” into the title.  I really feel that this can help mentally as well.  It’s like seeing the secret right there in front of me.  Something manageable that I can handle.
I don’t think it’s going to be that tough for me, since I really really love the taste of the juices and I love the healing properties of the micronutrients found inside of the fruits and vegetables.  So wish me luck and if you want to feel motivated and inspired, check out the amazing documentary on Netflix.  Happy Juicing
