The movie is really interesting even if you’re not interested in juicing/fasting.

“You are the sum total of all of your actions, thoughts, decisions, likes, dislikes, triumphs, defeats, aspirations, regrets, and everything else that you can squeeze in between the maternity ward and the crematorium.”
