Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead – True Story

As I fast from the material world, I am getting inspired to extend my fasting to more aspects of my life.  I am feeling a desire to heal my entire being.  I started off with my spirit by doing the Ignatian Prayer Adventure and now want to fast from eating.  I have already removed coffee, meat, fast food and full meals during the day.  Why not extend it further?

After completing the documentary, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, I want to do more.  I am considering juice fasting for the entirety of the Lent Season.  I have done this before but for only a week.  Am I nuts?  Probably not.  It’s more nuts to continue to kill our selves with the junk food, gluttony and attachment to food.  Watch the movie.  We watched it on Netflix.

Here’s the movie trailer. :)

Here we go.  By 50, I want to be fully cleansed spiritually, physically and enjoying life the way God intended.

  1. Thanks for sharing! I saw this on NetFlix but have not had an opportunity to watch. I definitely know first hand how food affects our bodies. As I continue on my healthy living transformation, food detox is definitely taking lots of focus and energy but I feel so much better these last couple months than I have in the past few years. Not just physically but emotionally and spiritually.

    Good luck on the juice fast and make sure to consult a doctor! :)


  2. Oli and I watched this too. Very inspiring. It definitely inspired him to start juicing more and probably what made him give up meat for lent.
