A place to discuss health and fitness, healthy diets. A fit body makes for a fit mind.
Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead is an excellent documentary I recently watched:
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.
With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long- term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body's ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days.
Its a very inspiring movie and so much so that I went out and a bought a juicer today in hopes of changing my diet.http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com/

Looks great, Bodom!
When I get home (in town) I'll see if I can rent it out.

You can tell he went straight into middle America too. He didn't just hit the big cities where you assume he would've had an easier time drawing support for dieting. Did not expect that all.
Look really interesting. Thanks for posting.
Through many of samsara’s births I hasten seeking, finding not the builder of this house - pain is birth again, again.
O builder of this house you’re seen, you shall not build a house again, all your beams have given away, rafters of the ridge decayed, mind to the unconditioned gone, exhaustion of craving has it reached.

That documentary does sound inspiring. This transformative resolve is an expression of viriya. Healthy projects like these are supported and maintained by viriya.
I was personally inspired by this brief RSA Animates presentation from physician Dr Michael Evans:
Rain soddens what is covered up,
It does not sodden what is open.
Therefore uncover what is covered
That the rain will not sodden it. Ud 5.5
