Filmmaker Joe Cross created Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, a documentary that chronicled his personal transformation, which has been viewed by more than 20 million people worldwide and has attracted an online community of more than a million followers. While promoting that film, he heard concerns from teachers, parents and health officials about childhood obesity, the amount of junk food children were consuming, and the lack of knowledge about healthy options. The incredible response to screenings of the film inspired Cross to create “Reboot with Joe,” making the tools, information and support available to enable anyone to reclaim and maintain their well-being.
