The time that exists between SXSW and Comic-Con, from about the end of March until mid-July, is what I like to call my self-improvement time. There are no major film festivals, events or other diversions that have me running for fried foods. I still live in Austin, the world’s capital of live music and delicious BBQ, but I suppose it’s time that I actually work on a diet. Have to get my body in shape for Comic-Con so that I can finally wear my Conan the Barbarian costume in Hall H.
Which is why I was drawn to Joe Cross’ documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. Like many a movie blogger, I’m at least two of the three. In the pic, a very overweight and unhealthy Cross takes on a radical “juice fasting” diet. Just watching the trailer, you’ll be instantly drawn to Joe’s incredible story (and the stories of the people he meets as he travels across America). So that’s where we’ll start. Don’t worry, we will get to the free stuff soon enough.
To celebrate the release of Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead on DVD April 1st, and to help kick-start my own dieting ways, I have convinced the studio behind the film to let us run a little giveaway. Four (4) lucky winners will take home a copy of the DVD. One (1) grand prize winner will get a copy of the DVD and one of the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain machines featured in the movie. Yes, for the first time ever, Film School Rejects is giving you something that may actually improve your health. Here’s what this bad boy looks like:
That is one intense juicing machine.
In order to win one of these prizes, you must get down into the comments section below and give me a pearl of dieting wisdom. And make it good, because the five I choose are things I might actually try and work into my routine. I’m not looking for “don’t eat carbs” here, I know that much. Tell me a story of what you’ve done and what has worked well for you. Winners will be chosen on Friday, April 8.
