Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead on TV Tonight

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead on TV Tonight

Five years ago an Australian named Joe Cross came to Harvard’s medical centers to interview me and I become part of his award-winning documentary, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.

Since then it’s estimated that over 10 million people have seen this film, about his 60 day juice fast.  It’s been an amazing ride!!!   Working with Joe Cross’s team at Reboot with Joe, I’ve had the opportunity to help thousands of people from around the world add more fruits and vegetables into their everyday diets.

As a clinical nutritionist at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Brigham & Women’s Hospital I get to see first hand how healthy eating and wellness living can impact individuals in a positive way.  Integrating clinical practice with wellness based private practice became a natural evolution for my husband, Wellness Behavioral Specialist, Dr. Russell Kennedy and I.  We founded our private practice, Wellness Guides, over 10 years ago and today, along with our dynamic team of professionals, we are helping clients lose weight, feel better and live well.

Tonight at 9pm EST Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead will air on TV here in the US on Headline News.  Join us for a live Twitter chat while the movie airs,  @Wellness_Guides

We are so excited to watch this amazing film together with you!
