This documentary inspired me to make changes to my life, so I can be a healthier and better father. I have always been a pizza and burgers guy, with a large coke, and a DQ Blizzard on the side. Basically, I have never really watched how much or what I was eating and that's the main reason why I hit 242lbs (I'm 5'10) at age 26. I felt fat, sick, and on my way to a shorter life.
What this documentary showed me was that you don't have to stop eating the things you love for the rest of your life to stay healthy. As long as you eat those foods occasionally and in moderation. Also by making fruits and vegetables a large part of your daily diet, you can live a happier and more fulfilling life.
Since watching this documentary, I have doubled down my vegetable intake and cut pop and other sweets out almost completely. I do love pop, so that has been a hard one for me. Unfortunately I don't like diet, so I'm basically an addict who falls off the wagon occasionally. I have also tried juicing a meal a day as a substitute for an actual meal. I am planning a 7 day all juice diet here soon to really kick some pounds and fill my body with some much-needed nutrients. But for now I have lost weight and am currently sitting at.... 229lbs.
Beyond the inspiration, the film is a great watch. Joe Cross and Phil Staples make life saving changes and show you what hard work and strong self-discipline can do. Just amazing.
