Results of my 10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse

A few weeks back when everyone was planning another resolution to lose weight this year, I came across a discussion on one of the FB groups about what was safe and useful.  Here are my results.

Several people were recommending a visit to a nutritionist at a nearby hospital.  She had her clients kickstart their new healthy food plan by following J.J. Smith’s “10 Day Green Smoothie Cleanse”.

My best friend, Google, found a PDF of the program which follows below.

I tried it and lost 7.48 lbs.  Not the 15 lbs. promised.  However, I have been following a clean diet of mostly fruits and vegetables for a while now so it wasn’t much of a change for me.  It was quick and easy using my Nutribullet.
