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.

Fantastic documentary, thank you FMTV for featuring it! I loved the "real life" approach to changing your diet and proving, once again, like many others have, raw food has an extraordinary effect on your whole being ❤️

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

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..
