FMTV - Average Joe On The Raw

Average Joe On The Raw

Runtime: 88m 34s | Release date: 2011

A 30-year-old " Average Joe" tries eating a clean, raw, plant-based diet and working out for 60 days, on an experimental journey to test the effect on his physical, mental, and emotional life. He hopes to transform his complacency and fatigue (on the Standard American Diet) to an improved version of himself.

Medical benchmarks are measured, as experts and others weigh in with opinions and commentary along the way, in a light-hearted look at the modern struggle for health.

This is an open conversation, offering hope to us all.

Hi Sue, thanks for tuning in. We don't believe there is a one size fits all approach to the 'perfect diet' - everybody is unique and needs to eat accordingly. Listen to your body and what makes you feel good! We encourage you to do some research into all of the dietary theories, experiment with them and choose what works best for your body. Best of health! ~ Ivory@FMTV

I loved this documentary! It was real and not sugar coated; liked that! I would love to have some of the recipes for those of us who would like to try a similar experiment and don't know quite where to start with meals. Thanks for the informative film.

As a chef to trade I enjoyed this film. The main { ' Average Joe was totally inspiring} His personality shone through in a good way. I could totally identify with with a lot of his perspective.. I now am involved with patient care in a local hospital. ' Joe was remarkably NORMAL in his dealings with the taking blood. Nurses YOU DID A GREAT JOB.. A a onlooker it was important to SEE the more difficult aspects of the journey. Very helpful indeed. Thank you for being so relatable to a lot of people The team crushed it and made it a relatable journey for the viewer..

I've been on a whole foods, plant based diet now for about 9 months. I'm feeling better, have more energy and less pain than before. Everything was going fine, then suddenly about 2 weeks ago I started having stomach and intestinal problems. Really bad diarrhea, upset stomach, no matter what I eat, I'm miserable afterwards! I've been doing a lot of fasting, it's the only thing that helps. Do you have any suggestions?

The problem that I have with this film is the conclusion. Are the changes due to eating only raw food or is it because of eliminating the pizza, donuts and all the other garbage? Is the answer just to eat real food: organic fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, and organic, pasture raised animal protein? This film should not convince anyone to go raw vegan.
