Im not a believer of diets or drastic changes in you eating habits. That only means temporary change=body harm.
Im a 31 y/o. No kids. Married. With a 7:30-5:00 job. A 40 min commute. And a fitbit watch to try to achieve at least 8,000 steps a day. In other words, Im kinda normal.
I always was underweight. My ideal weight used to be 106-110. Im only 5ft. When I turned 26 my weight started to change due to bad eating habits. I went to 125, then 135 and finally 145. I started watching what I was eating about two years ago, but loosing that extra weight hasn't been easy.
As per my primary doc, my ideal weight for my height and age should be 115-125. I dont know how to achieve that!
I do not consume sugars/sweets because I simply dont like them. My weakness is beer and buffalo wings. I dont eat salty either, it became a habit after my dad got a heart surgery about ten years ago.
My breakfast is usually tea with crackers, for lunch I like soup, and dinner varies. But I think dinner is what kills me. For the most part I cook a typical Hispanic meal: rice, beans, and some sort of meat. But when I don't cook, hubby and I just order food (pizza or Chinese).
For about two years now, my weight hit the 130-135 mark. I have not been able to weight less than that.
I decided to give this book a try not to achieve my ideal weight, I gave up on that a while ago. But to cleanse my system which I think is something I truly need.
In just four days I already feel the difference: Im sleeping so much better. I have so much energy and somehow, Im always happy (Im like that famous grumpy cat, so a happy face is abnormal in my case haha).
Giving up meats is not a challenge (I was vegetarian for about three years, until I developed rashes and a weak inmune system). Im not that much into dairy. Fruits are the love of my life. I love bread, but I can survive without it; same with pasta. But the beer??? Oh my! I love my beer at night. Yet, I have not missed it. Im fine without it ;)
Weird craving Ive been having is salt. However, I love pickled veggies, so I guess thats where the craving comes from.
What makes this program easy is that you are not deprived from eating at all. If you feel hungry you get to eat any veggies or fruits of your choice. You also get to eat hard boiled eggs, which I never ate those many before in my life hahaha. They are filling and very nutricious. The book does not mention a limit on eggs. I did some research and an average of 4-6 a day is completely healthy. I'm having three a day. I also snack on fruits and veggies that are not part of the smoothy of the day, that way I do not loose motivation.
I am not doing the salt-water flush. Not my thing.! I will let my body do everything on its own. Im not adding sweetners either, but thats just because as I said before, I dont like sweets. Im drinking plenty of water which I always have, and a bought a variety of detox teas to switch flavors.
Lastly, pretty much all my ingredients are organic. Ive been buying organic for years now. And I am not adding any protein to my smoothies. I rather to get that protein from organic eggs.
I will update this post with more results. My experience is a good one. I completely suggest you try this program. The only side effect I experienced was a little rash by my lip. It went away in half hour and it happened on my first day. Another thing Im experiencing is something like hot-flashes hahaha... I just wake up sweating and with my body tempeture up. But I dont feel like is something bad. Maybe the sweat is the way my system is cleansing.
By the way, I decided to take pics everyday. I want to see the difference my self. No filters used, filters dont cheat others but yourself! And, I decided to use the same outfit when taking the pictures so that the results are hopefully, more visible.
Good luck trying the program!
I am sorry for not updating this post earlier. Believe it or not, I couldnt figure out how to do it + Im a busy girl.
So, I uploaded all other pics.
Since a succesful end to my cleanse, I have continued with the modified version (2 smoothies and a HEALTHY meal).
My total loss was 10 pounds and I continue to be at 125. 125 is perfect in my case given my height and age. However, I am thinking about doing the cleanse again soon; not to lose weight, but to get rid of xmas/new yrs/vacation toxins :)
I have to admit that my eating habits completely changed. I continue to crave fruits and veggies on a daily basis. To me that is the most interesting part of all. I continue to indulge on buffalo wings and beer over the weekends and my results continue to be the same. By The way, on the weekends I rarely drink smoothies; I eat 2-3 meals and feel just fine. However, and once again, my meals are healthy. I kinda became a pesquetarian, all I eat is fish and lots of veggies.
On another note, I gave a try to three different things mentioned in the book: sea-salt water flush (I add a lime to it to make it easier to drink) and oh my if I recommend it, it makes me feel digestively clean :). I also bought Mag07 and wow! JJ Smith is right about those pills, is a great way to stay regular and help your digestive system stay healthy. Finally, I did the liver cleanse (8oz water and 2tbs apple cider vinegar) and my waist has gotten thinner.
I continue to go to the book all the time. I get recipes from there, and I just go back to her various tips.
Since, I bought another book with hundreds of green smoothie recipes. I like JJ Smith's recipes better because are less sweeter, but nonetheless, the other book helps me keep up with my routine too.
I developed a method: Once a month I get a shopping list ready. I separate all recipes on ziploc bags and freeze them. The night before I take them out and done! I waste no time making my daily dose of health.
I also bought a Ninja blender. Mine was a small one and I had to make a smoothie at a time (no time for that in the am). Im totally in love with my new blender because I make 2-3 cups of the same smoothie at once.
Feel free to ask me questions.
I continue to recommend the book. Im also very active in JJ Smith's twitter account because the program worked like a charm in my case. I love my new eating habits and how I feel in general, and thats all thanks to JJ Smith.
Last note: people constantly compliment me on my skin and hair, people do notice my weight loss, and people continue to talk about how cheerful I am most of the time which I find hillarious given how grumpy I am ha!
Best of luck to those considering the cleanse.

I developed a knee injury over the years as a result of playing sports and athletics in my younger years and couldn't run or exercise as I usually do or wanted to and was in a lot of pain with my knee. I gained 1 stone and 10lbs in weight, I felt awful and was becoming depressed from not being able to shift the weight and just feeling too heavy. So eventually this year after waiting to have surgery on my knee for a while waited to have surgery, a friend said she was going to start a 10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse. She invited me to do it with her, she sent me details of the book, I ordered it and started a week after her and we both lost 11lbs at weigh in on day 11 respectively. It wasn't just the weight loss which was fantastic (and clothes I was getting ready to send to charity shops because I hadn't been able to fit into for sometime I was now fitting into). It was my skin! it looked amazing! it looked fresher clearer, the white of my eyes were sharper, I felt healthier and lite in weight but in spirit. My knee (post surgery and in recovery) is practically pain free from to carrying my stone and half overweight self. I dropped a clothes size and shoe size, my trainers were roomier, some of my shoes were too big. I checked with my friend if she felt her shoes were looser, she said yes but thought she was imagining it, but she wasn't, she's gone down a size in footwear too as well as clothing. I would also say (as the author stresses too ) it is just important how you come off the 10 day Cleanse as how you prepared yourself for it. if you don't you can do more harm than good if you start gorging on food you having eating in nearly two weeks. The book is an easy read and the author will guide you to starting right from the first chapter. I am still doing the modified version which is 2 green smoothies day and a healthy nutritious meal. (She gives you recipes at the end of the book). I'm not at my goal weight yet. Well at the time of posting this, I think I am, so I am gradually moving to 1 smoothie and two healthy meals a day. So do it!!! You'll be so pleased with the results. Take time to prepare yourself mentally, the first 4 days was difficult in that you are weaning yourself off solid foods but push through it, drink lots of water, I drank no less than 2.5 litres a day and herbal teas.(no coffee or teas) and everything where possible organic. I've recommended this to so many people already simply because it works and it's healthy and you feel incredible. I would also recommend doing it with someone if you can or in a group, so you can encourage each other especially in the first few days. I look forward to seeing your review. :-) Best Wishes.
Everyone knows you can do smoothies to get healthy and maybe even replace a meal.
I'm a fit, healthy and already good weight person. I simply wanted to lose a bit more and get a flat stomach. Having said all of that well I DID lose some weight, my skin improved so probably better to do one a day (manageable, realistic).
