"The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet" by filmmaker and juicing guru Joe Cross available now featuring Joe's signature recipes and plans which have already helped people around the world lose more than 12 million pounds

International book tour to kick off on February 12 with stops in Toronto & Vancouver

TORONTO, Feb. 19, 2014 /CNW/ - Author, filmmaker, and wellness personality Joe Cross has spent three years since the release of his award-winning documentary of personal transformation Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead providing the film's audience of 10 million people worldwide with his tips, suggestions and recipes for following the example he set in the film. To date, Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead has inspired its audience to consume more than 180 million glasses of juice and lose more than 12 million pounds. Recognizing the need for a comprehensive suite of plans and more detailed information, he authored "The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet" to be published by Greenleaf Books, (ISBN: 978-1-62634-081-7) available in Canada and the U.S. starting February 4th. Noted expert Dr. Joel Fuhrman who oversaw Joe's own journey from obesity and disease, to wellness and vitality, contributed the book's foreword.

In the book, Joe recounts details from his own journey, including his battle to lose weight, overcome a debilitating illness, and then maintain the wellbeing he achieved after a 5-month diet of vegetables, fruits, nuts, beans and seeds. It also includes:

  • Success stories from average people who have applied Joe's principles and followed his plans to address illness and lose 5, 10, and 50, even 100+ lbs.
  • Techniques for preparing for a "Reboot" in order to ensure maximum results
  • How to adapt the program to cash- and time-strapped lifestyles
  • A new and healthy perspective on processed food
  • Strategies for transitioning back into a world filled with a dizzying array of choices
  • A broad spectrum of easy-to-make recipes to suit any palate

In addition to essential information that details the hows, whens and whys of doing a Reboot, the book also contains powerful statistics which help make sense of the epidemic of obesity and behavioral illness plaguing the developed world, as well as proven strategies for encouraging behavioral modification.

As he did with the phenomenally successful film Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, Joe Cross is taking the book to audiences around the US and Canada with a series of personal appearances at Indigo; Linen Chest; Canadian Tire; London Drugs; and Bed, Bath & Beyond.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud.

You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
