If you are anything like me, weight loss and maintaining weight is extremely hard. Trust me when I say, I've been on just about every "diet" out there. In the past I've tried protein, supplements, fat burners, low carb, everything you can imagine! Although I had temporary success... whenever I deviated from the plan in the slightest way, I ended up gaining everything back and then some, which left me feeling completed defeated. That is until I started drinking greens regularly!
If you are reading this thinking, "that's me" I have good news... You don't have to live that way anymore. Just by making a few small changes you can achieve your dream weight and improve your overall health. All you need to do is Go Green.
Start off taking baby steps. I want to challenge you to start swapping your breakfast out with 1 green juice or smoothie. Think of each night as a mini fast and upon wakening you have the chance to cleanse, detox, and reboot your system with a delicious green drink.
Green juices and smoothies are very easy on the digestive system... think of this as giving your digestive system a little break. This allows your digestive system to start breaking down old foods that may be stored in the body, in lieu of breaking down a heavy breakfast. This is one reason why drinking greens in the morning is fat flushing... cool, I know! The most powerful and health boosting thing you can do for your body is let fresh juiced/blended up greens be the first thing that enters your system. I cannot emphasize how important it is to start each day off with a green drink! Green juice cleans out your system and your blood, which actually boots your energy and sets you up to be awake and alert the rest of the day.
Juicy benefits of starting each day with a Green Juice or Smoothie:
Boots Immune System
Cleanses your blood stream
Cleanses your blood stream
Increased Nutrient Intake
Bigger Variety of Vegetables are Consumed
Reverse Dark Circles
So, for one month ditch the eggs and coffee and just try this out. What do you have to lose? There will come a point where at night, all you will think about is having your green drink in the morning! After you start making green drinks part of your morning routine, I guarantee you'll never want to go back!

Update: For those of you who have been reading my blog, you know that I lost over 30 lbs a year ago when I started making these exact small changes. I am happy and proud to say that for the first time in my life I have been able to keep the weight off! Sure, there were a few times I went out of town, overindulged, and gain a few pounds but I was able to lose it right away. I still fit into the "skinny jeans" I bought last december when all the weight came off (woo hoo!) and I have never felt healthier in my entire life!
Curent before & after.
