More Joe Cross for H&S

Hodder & Stoughton has acquired a new book by “juicing guru” Joe Cross.

Lifestyle editor Sarah Hammond bought British Commonwealth rights (excluding Canada) to Reboot with Joe: Fully Charged from Norah Perkins at Curtis Brown and Kari Stuart at ICM.

Cross weighed 22 stone when he turned 40, was in constant pain and suffered from a debilitating auto-immune disease.

He decided to try to regain his health through juicing and filmed the attempt, which became the documentary "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead".

Cross has created a second film, "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead 2", which documents how to make healthy habits last. It will be broadcast on terrestrial television in the UK in March 2015.

In Reboot with Joe: Fully Charged he will share “all that he has learned about staying healthy”, including “inspiration and encouragement, as well as practical tips for diet, exercise and mindfulness”.

Cross said: “I have met a lot of people in the UK who have opened up their hearts to me about their weight loss stories that have been achieved through juicing. But I’ve also realised that staying healthy can be hard – no one is perfect and regressions will happen – and it can be a lot more complex than just what you eat. I’ve distilled what I’ve learned down to seven keys to healthy and happiness which I share in this new book and I hope will help and inspire readers to stick to a healthy lifestyle.”

Hodder has published two books by Cross this year - The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet and The Reboot with Joe Juice Diet Recipe Book.

Reboot with Joe: Fully Charged will be published in February 2015 in trade paperback at £12.99.
