After Holiday overindulgence, I lost 5.1 pounds in one week on the Green Smoothie Challenge. Pretty fantastic considering I wasn’t ever hungry. Others did awesome as well.
Eli 5 lbs, Anna 8 lbs, Erika 5 lbs, Birgit 4 lbs (with cheats!), Aleese 5 lbs, Jacob 6 lbs, Donna 3 lbs (without exercising) Fran 5 lbs, Larry 12 lbs the first week. He’s still going and has lost over 16 lbs in less than 3 weeks.
These are only some of the results I’m aware of.
Something amazing happens when you exercise every day and eat completely clean and plant based. Most people simply aren’t used to consuming this many vegetables and this much fiber. Some would say weight loss happens on this plan because of all the negative calorie foods. I’m not exactly sure how it works, but I call it awesome. I entered all my information to a nutrition and fitness tracker for the week. The nutrition stats behind the tracking program says I shouldn’t have been able to lose more than a couple of pounds. But my body knew better.
The best part is that this is a safe weight loss method. You get every single bit of nutrition you need from the approved foods and none that you don’t.
Thanks for following along, even if you didn’t join the challenge. For those of you who have a significant amount of weight to lose, this plan can be followed until you reach your goal.
