Green Smoothie Diet Started TODAY! ;)
 
Hi all,
I started my green smoothie diet today. I am 164.6 pounds and my goal weight is 144! Okay today has been rough and I am hungry! I have had 4 Smoothies and my head hurts. I have been urinating like crazy. I plan on doing this for 7 days and eating regular for 7 days. I may or may not do a round 2! I will post here daily for accountability. OMG!!! I have 20 pounds to lose. Sigh! I will keep you guys posted! Toodles!

Day 2!
 
Today I weighed in at 162.6

I lost two pounds!!! As miserable as day 1 was..I better had lost something! :)

No exercise today. I exercised yesterday and felt MISERABLE! I think not eating is strain enough on the body! I will workout for about 20 minutes tomorrow and every other day after that.

Today I have had 4 smoothies and will have one more before bed. I feel better and not really craving food and when I feel hungry... I drink a smoothie. I feel ok. It is just weird not eating any solid food. I do not think I will be doing this again.

SOME BACKGROUND...
So I'm still going strong. I had a baby in mid October 2012. I weighed 199 after delivery!!! My PP weight dropped and I ended up at 176. I did the fat smash diet and lost 14 pounds in about 3 weeks. It was an ok diet and then the scale no longer moved and start going up and down with my weight these last 3 weeks. I ranged from 162.4 to 166.6ish. Up and down and up and down. I just want to get to 140-144 and then can go up and down between those weights.

I want to lose AT LEAST 10 pounds doing this and then I need to switch it up. I may go back to the fat smash diet. I can not wait to eat again! OMG!

TO BE CONTINUED...TOMORROW!

Day 3!
 
Today's weight is: 161!

So far I have lost 3.6 pounds in barely 3 days. I can even see my waist shrinking. I have only had two smoothies today and it is noon. I feel OK. I have energy but I want to enjoy a meal. I'm hanging in there! NO EXERCISE TODAY!!! I just don't have enough energy for all of that. I will do this until Thursday which is Valentines day because me and hubby are going out. I refuse to drink a smoothie. I may resume on Friday. After this fast is over... I am getting a makeover from head to toe as a reward. I will stay active and eat MOSTLY healthy to try and keep the weight off. I realize that it is mostly water weight but if I keep up the exercise and a good diet.... I am sure I can keep it up. I have never done anything this CRAZY in my life. THIS IS NUTS YOU GUYS! I will finish it out and eat healthy and workout for now on.

See you guys tomorrow! :)

woooh , drastic results ,,,,so for 3 days you lost 3 pounds !! very good !!
can you tell me instead of green smoothie is there any substitute for green smoothie !! plz mention !!

Well done, you sound well on your way. I drink 2 green drinks a day, sometimes 3. I incorporate a fat so I don't get a headache eg: 1/4 avacado per drink. Another trick I learned from food combining is to never eat starches and fats together..so eat a protein and veggies then if you want a starch just wait 3 hrs and have it then. I have lost 35 lbs this year doing exactly that! For more cool information just google, 'food combining'. Mixing starches and proteins/fats makes your bum/tummy fat!!

In December I bought a Nutri Bullet and it makes tough greens ( like kale for example ) into silk! clean up is a breeze when you just rinse the glass under the tap after using, super simple. It is my friend for life! I have 40 more lbs to lose this year and my Nutri Bullet is just making this really simple!

Cheers,

Nancy :)

Day 4 & 5
 
Hey Guys!

Sorry ...no post yesterday. It was a hectic day.

Well I woke up and weighed in at 160.0! That is a 4.6 pound loss in 4 days!
BUT THEN.....I ran out of ingredients! Lol hahaha! ;)

I couldn't get to the store and was STARVING! I didn't want to eat anything.
And at 4pm....I GAVE INTO SOME NACHOS!

I was STARVING!!! Then later I ate dinner which was a small plate of chicken and mash potatoes. Oh boy...I knew I was going to pay for that!

I heard that when you break a fast that you must break it slow because your metabolism is slowwwwwwwwww. My research says to only eat soup, fruits, and veggies the first day. The 2nd and 3rd day to eat fruits, veggies, nuts, and poultry. Only increase calories by 100 until you get up to your desired calories. Eat every 2-3 hours to speed up metabolism. Have one smoothie a day and one smoothie DAY preferable Mondays because most people eat unhealthy on the weekends. Oh, and of course...EXERCISE! That is the PROPER way to end a fast and not gain weight back BUT IT HAS NOT BEEN TESTED by me yet. BUT I will test it for you guys!

Oh anyway.....DAY 5

Weigh in 161.4!!!! (1.4 pound GAIN!)

That dang it chicken and nachos!!!! :)

Now I'm NERVOUS I will gain it all back once I say I'm done with smoothies. Hmmm... We shall see. Maybe my food just has not digested yet? So I went to the store last night and today I am back on my smoothie diet. I was thinking about doing 2 smoothies a day and just eat dinner as usual. I was loosing a half a pound a day like that but of course I was thinking if I do ALL smoothies...I will lose weight faster. The 2 smoothie a day was nice tho because i got to enjoy my meals and did not feel deprived AND I was not gaining any weight. Maybe its true....slow and steady wins the race! I will think of my plan. Maybe when I get down to 156 I will change back....maybe not! I don't know. Let me think on this because I love food and I love weight loss to. One minute on the lips...a lifetime on the hips. :)

My smoothies normally have 2 BIG handfuls of baby spinach, 5 blueberries, some pineapple, and a Yoplait yogurt (A TEENY BIT OF WATER AS WELL). I cut and freeze my fruit ahead of time so when I blend it...it is nice and cold and slushy. MMMMMmmmm :)

I mix different fruits but the smoothie above is my fav! I switch back and forth from baby spinach to the spring salad mix for variety. I also heard that too much of the same green is TOXIC.

Ok guys, sorry I wrote a book. I will be back tomorrow with my stats! Toodles!

Also...
 
A substitute for green smoothies? I guess just eat all the fruit and veggies you were going to blend together. :)

Has anyone done this and have tips for me? I do not want to gain all the weight back. I really think I should go back to eating my dinner with smoothies only twice a day.

Is anyone going to do this with me? Come on! Anybody? :)

Thanks for this! How much do you weigh now? How often do you exercise? Do you know how many calories you are consuming everyday?
