Now I can't say I've lost tons of weight since starting this but I have lost 10 lbs in 90 days...
I've substituted the drink(s) I will be listing below as my dessert drinks..
I'm a healthy 30 year old who has a bit of weight to lose. I exercise and eat healthy and I have 2 cheat days a month where I splurge :-)
The Green Drink Diet
What does this do?
Your body will get a rush of essential nutrients (especially important at breakfast after fasting all night).
Because you have taken care of the body’s basic needs you will be more satiated which will allow you to eat much less “crap” than you otherwise would have.
Your body will slowly start to crave these nutritious boosts and you will start supplementing more and more of the unhealthy parts of your diet with healthier counterparts almost without thinking about it.
The scale of your diet will tip in the direction of health and all the other stuff (that you still enjoy of course) will find its rightful spot in your dietary array: few and far between.
That’s it, folks. Simple. Nutritious.
This is a great recipe for the newbies or those that just can not stomach the more complicated green drinks.
It’s sweet and simple; just peaches and spinach and full of vitamin C.
4 whole peaches (pitted)
1 cup spinach
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup ice
Blend her up and drink her down. Add more ice and less water to make it more smoothie-like.
The Healthy Green
1 bunch watercress
1 green apple
1 lime (juiced or peel the hard outer layer leaving the white)
4 mint leaves
1/4 cup water
1 cup ice
Blend and add more water as necessary.
1 bunch wheatgrass
2 oranges (peeled)
1 cup water
1 cup ice
The amount of grass I used is a 3×3 sprout box. If you have a masticating juicer you can juice 2-4oz. and throw it into the blender. Otherwise you can do what I did and use the whole grass.
Enjoy your perfect coffee alternative.
I hope everyone enjoys these tasty drinks if you have any recipes for healthy green drinks please add:-)
