Like most things on telly these days, this one does exactly what it says on the tin. Australian Joe Cross is 100lbs overweight and reliant on steroids for a debilitating autoimmune disease. With doctors and conventional medicine unable to help him long-term, he trades in his junk-food diet and sets out on a road trip across the United States, vowing to drink only fresh fruit and vegetable juice for 60 days and achieve a balanced lifestyle. Along the way he talks to more than 500 Americans about food, health and longevity, and meets a morbidly obese truck driver suffering from the same rare condition.
