You may have noticed a lot of juice bars popping up in café’s all over the country. Well they say the trend of carrying around a green juices was all started by this one man.

 Mr Joe is the guy that started the juicing trend. In his first film he had over 2 million viewers now his back with a second movie "Fat Sick & Nearly Dead 2" (you can search for it on Itunes). Joe travels around the world demonstrating the powers of juicing, helps people to regain their health back.

Joe lost 45kg of the course of a year whilst filming his initial documentary show, he had a range of health conditions including an autoimmune condition which he was able to escape by fixing up his diet. The first film he produced came out approximately 5 years ago

Now he's back to spread the word about how juicing, ultimately eating more fruit and veggies can change improve your health and change yourself. That’s an epic story one a think a large majority of people can resonate with. Over weight fed up, medicated up to the wazoo.

In my eyes any trend that helps people eat more fruit and veggies is a positive one. Joe even shares with us his favourite juicing recipe. Remember to connect with me if you want to chat @gmaston on twitter or if you want more sexy nutrition and exercise info visit my website
