Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead(2010)

Directors : Joe Cross,Kurt Engfehr

Synopsis:

100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. In the mirror he saw a 310lb man whose gut was bigger than a beach ball and a path laid out before him that wouldn't end well— with one foot already in the grave, the other wasn't far behind. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe's personal mission to regain his health.

Our View:

This heart warming shout out for self-improvement, surprisingly, becomes one of the more inspiring documentaries about healthy living.
