Nice motivational film. I was very inspired by this one. Will I be juicing anytime soon? Probably not, and I’ll tell you why. It’s not that it isn’t a great idea, because it truly is. However it is not a practical idea. If you can afford the time to call off work for a detox absolutely, this would be something I could do. However that is a luxury I doubt many can afford. It’s kind of like any major Hollywood diet. The star or starlet has the resources and time to be able to throw it all away for a few weeks. Living in middle class America with responsibilities this just is not doable. If I can be proven wrong please feel free to do so.
Joe Cross, and the other folks in the documentary had the luxury of time to do this kind of diet and had amazing results. I don’t doubt the results either. It’s the reality to me that just isn’t there. It is a motivational film for sure, but the side effects of this extreme shock to the system that are not covered at all in the film. The “detox” part of it. The bathroom trips especially. How exactly are you supposed to function during a normal day of work the first few days of doing this? So, while I loved the film the concept is unrealistic for the average Joe. I say cheers and good on you to Joe and the others in the film juicing it up. I can see slowly adding juicing into any diet but not in this extreme regimen. How about a clip of cleaning those beasts of machines too? Everyone loves juicing until the first time you have to clean it.
