30 Bananas a Day!

It is a documentary about an Australian guy who goes on a 60 day juice fast. It's very inspirational.


It inspired my dad who has been ill for years and struggling to try low fat raw for 60 days. He started yesterday, I'm so excited! 


Check it out. http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com/

Yes, I watched it on Netflix after someone mentioned it on 30BAD. I got really choked up watching the ending with the truck driver jogging outside in the shirt he was given. I thought it was totally amazing.

Best of luck to your dad!!!!

Right? That was the best part for me too. He could barely walk in the beginning and by the end he was running. My brother-in-law is pretty gravely ill and he's finally getting the message that he has to change is diet in order to beat his disease. He's going to try juicing too.
I really enjoyed the film and the way it was done; however, juice fasting seems like a good formula to get the initial weight down, but I don't think its very sustainable.
Just watched it w/my wife and I find it totally bizarre that even though I live with the woman and she watched me drop 80 lbs on a raw food diet that she wanted nothing to do with it until she sees a movie about it. Now she wants to do the juice fast thing. I can't really complain but I have to bite my tongue thinking about how juicing is not really the best way to go and that our food needs to be consumed whole!

I watched this movie a while ago and it inspired me to try a juice fast which lasted all of 4 days for me before I re-affirmed to myself that juicing is not worth the effort for the most part (occassional juicing is OK), it removes the fiber which aids in digestion for one thing also chewing leafy green things is more beneficial than juicing them for a couple of reasons...


Anyway, from reading Freelee's comment about his current physical appearance I'm gonna go ahead say it isn't a long-term solution for health maintenance...

Yeah it is a simple a good story. I really like the trucker guy at one cheeseburger away from a heart attack.


Food Inc., Ingredients Matter, and other similar titles are pretty cool too.

I really enjoyed this. My 7 year old daughter watched it with me as well. She loved it.
Yes, I loved this movie. I never thought that a already ill person like in this case only with 60 days juice feast can be healthy again. Maybe I want also do 60 days juice feasting, just to see what happens. If it can help it a ill person, it can´t be bad for everyone else.
The truck driver is so inspirational.
I've seen it and really enjoyed it ;)
Too bad that guy went back to eating meat... That's a shame... :((
I thought that doc was awsome. It is very inspiring to see what food can do for us. I hope your dad hangs with it and recovers fully. Much love,  Jacob
