Book Review: Rethinking Green Smoothies

If you would have asked me a few months ago to drink a green smoothie, the answer would have been no. Really? Who can get pass the color?

Fast forward  to July and I'm introduced to JJ Smith, the name behind the New York Times Best Seller 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse. My coworker tells me how great she feels and her weight loss has jump started. Over on the Facebook page, there are even more testimonies and pictures attributed to the Green Smoothie cleanse.

Ms. Smith believes "the first step in losing weight is detoxification" which is the premise of the book, and the main reason why I decided to try it. Here are other claims stated on her website:

The 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse will help you:

      • Lose 10-15 pounds in 10 days
      • Get rid of stubborn body fat, including belly fat
      • Drop pounds and inches fast, without grueling workouts
      • Learn to live a healthier lifestyle of detoxing and healthy eating
      • Help your body naturally crave healthy foods so you never have to diet again
      • Receive over 100 green smoothie recipes for various health conditions and goals

So what do I have to say about all these claims and hundreds of people singing its praises? They were right! Wow! My energy levels went through the roof--not a jittery high or anything but natural energy. I'm a Ben & Jerry's fanatic but I haven't craved sugar since ending the cleanse approximately one week ago. My endurance during my workouts is awesome. Okay I've shared this pic everywhere. Lol I was doing 1-3 miles before the cleanse. Look at the display now:
Yep! That's 6.01 miles.
The book contains the specific recipes and shopping list for the 10-day plan and then tons of education to help you foster a healthy lifestyle. You'll really enjoy the smoothie recipes for health conditions and goals. No, I didn't lose into the double digits, and it wasn't my goal either. I feel invigorated and have a new perspective on healthy eating!

Get the book! Try it and come to your own conclusion.
