This week while I was in B&N in Bethesda I caught an event with Joe Cross who spoke about his past while promoting his new book. The event was packed and people asked lots of questions. Joe is a charismatic and dynamic speaker and he knows how to win friends and influence people. One of the most interesting points Joe made was our historical reliance on plant-based food. The trend towards animal protein is a relatively recent occurrence in human history.
It was interesting to happen upon the event after recently showing his film ‘Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead’. Someone asked about Phil, the truck driver in the film. Unfortunately Phil had a relapse which made me sorry to hear. Joe said his weight has fluctuated but he has maintained around 240.
While I have a Vitamix, I have not gotten into juicing. For one thing I prefer to eat whole foods and keep the fiber; however, I agree with on the benefit of a juice fast or cleanse.
