Picked one of these up from a different retailer (sorry Amazon-the price was too good to pass up!) after being very curious about it after watching the infomercial a few times. I've been using it daily for 2 months now and have been using a couple of the recipes as outlined in the included books that come with this set (in particular, "Natural Healing Foods") and a very strange and unexpected thing has happened...I've lost 8lbs...this, by no means is a bad thing as I'm overweight, but I did not see this coming!
A word of caution though, if you're not used to having a couple handful of greens with some fruit and a few nuts as part of your diet on a daily basis I'd also recommend picking up a little bottle of "Beano" as you might find yourself doing a little "crop-dusting" for a few days while your digestive system gets used to all the extra fiber that it'll be taking in...just sayin'... (I'm happy to report that I've adapted to the green-juice goodness and I no longer fear being in a full elevator with strangers...)
Within about 2 weeks of starting the drinks (I have mine in the morning for breakfast) I noticed I had a little more energy and I couldn't figure out where it was coming from until someone commented that it was probably from the good nutrients I was getting from the whole fruits and veggies I was getting first thing-made sense to me. As the days have gone by what I also noticed is that suddenly I have started craving more veggies and salads and have been naturally snacking on nuts or fruit instead of candy and have found it easier to pay attention to my portion sizes. Overall I'm just making healthier choices AND...because I have an injury, I've been unable to exercise so the weight loss is diet alone-and, something I was unable to accomplish prior to this when I was exercising and trying other methods like Paleo or Lindora, etc.
So far, so good and I think this was a great decision and investment on my part.
