10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse: Lose up to 15 Pounds in 10 Days



Today is July 3rd and I’m on day 4 of the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse and I am almost 10 pounds down. I want to lose at least 30-50 pounds. I am a naturally curvy woman and have never been overweight. I gained weight over the last few years because I wasn’t eating enough and my metabolism was very very slow.

I’ve never been much of a big eater, but I am Southern and from Louisiana and our food consists of rice and other thick gravies which can cause weight gain if you’re sedentary. I didn’t have the energy to move around like I did when I worked, so I gained weight. Anyway, I decided to start walking 10,000 steps a day and because I have anemia and hypothyroidism I decided to try the modified version of the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse and was shocked! In only 4 days I am down a dress size!

I don’t look at the scale much since sometimes we lose inches and not pounds, but I feel amazing. My energy is through the roof and I feel like I’m 21 though I just turned 41. I love the group on Facebook and I love the book! It’s very easy to follow and you won’t be hungry. If you can make it past the first 48 hours, you can do all 10 days with ease.

This book is very informative and it has great smoothie recipes. Best of all, the approved foods to start the cleanse are very affordable. I’m now doing 100 jump squats a day in addition to exercising daily and doing cardio 3 days a week. JJ has a 30-day squat challenge and I already do 100 squats a day. Doing jump squats and sumo squats has me feeling amazing.

I cannot wait to see what my 10-day results will be. This is not a diet, it’s a lifestyle. I will try my best to eat this way forever. I was tired of pills, teas, and diets that didn’t work. I’m so grateful to JJ for sharing this with the world. If you have weight to lose or if you want to cleanse and detox, I highly recommend this cleanse and this book! It has changed countless lives! Hundreds of thousands of people’s lives are being changed thanks to JJ and this book!


What an amazing book!

I’m not a believer in diets or drastic changes in your eating habits. That only means temporary change=body harm.

I’m a 31 y/o. No kids. Married. With a 7:30-5:00 job. A 40 min commute. And a Fitbit watches to try to achieve at least 8,000 steps a day. In other words, I’m kinda normal.

I always was underweight. My ideal weight used to be 106-110. I’m only 5ft. When I turned 26 my weight started to change due to bad eating habits. I went to 125, then 135, and finally 145. I started watching what I was eating about two years ago, but losing that extra weight hasn’t been easy.

As per my primary doc, my ideal weight for my height and age should be 115-125. I don’t know how to achieve that!

I do not consume sugars/sweets because I simply don’t like them. My weakness is beer and buffalo wings. I don’t eat salty either, it became a habit after my dad got heart surgery about ten years ago.

My breakfast is usually tea with crackers, for lunch I like soup, and dinner varies. But I think dinner is what kills me. For the most part, I cook a typical Hispanic meal: rice, beans, and some sort of meat. But when I don’t cook, hubby and I just order food (pizza or Chinese).

For about two years now, my weight hit the 130-135 mark. I have not been able to weigh less than that.

I decided to give this book a try not to achieve my ideal weight, I gave up on that a while ago. But to cleanse my system which I think is something I truly need.

In just four days I already feel the difference: I’m sleeping so much better. I have so much energy and somehow, I’m always happy (I’m like that famous grumpy cat, so a happy face is abnormal in my case haha).

Giving up meats is not a challenge (I was vegetarian for about three years until I developed rashes and a weak immune system). I’m not that much into dairy. Fruits are the love of my life. I love bread, but I can survive without it; same with pasta. But the beer??? Oh my! I love my beer at night. Yet, I have not missed it. I’m fine without it 😉

The weird craving has Ive been having being salt. However, I love pickled veggies, so I guess that’s where the craving comes from.

What makes this program easy is that you are not deprived of eating at all. If you feel hungry you get to eat any veggies or fruits of your choice. You also get to eat hard-boiled eggs, which I never ate many before in my life hahaha. They are filling and very nutritious. The book does not mention a limit on eggs. I did some research and an average of 4-6 a day is completely healthy. I’m having three a day. I also snack on fruits and veggies that are not part of the smoothy of the day, that way I do not lose motivation.

I am not doing the salt-water flush. Not my thing.! I will let my body do everything on its own. I’m not adding sweeteners either, but that’s just because as I said before, I don’t like sweets. I’m drinking plenty of water which I always have, and a bought a variety of detox teas to switch flavors.

Lastly, pretty much all my ingredients are organic. I’ve been buying organic for years now. And I am not adding any protein to my smoothies. I rather get that protein from organic eggs.

I will update this post with more results. My experience is a good one. I completely suggest you try this program. The only side effect I experienced was a little rash on my lip. It went away in half-hour and it happened on my first day. Another thing I’m experiencing is something like hot flashes hahaha… I just wake up sweating and with my body temperature up. But I don’t feel like is something bad. Maybe the sweat is the way my system is cleansing.

By the way, I decided to take pics every day. I want to see the difference myself. No filters used, filters don’t cheat others but yourself! And, I decided to use the same outfit when taking the pictures so that the results are hopefully, more visible.

Good luck trying the program!


Hello everyone!

I am sorry for not updating this post earlier. Believe it or not, I couldn’t figure out how to do it + I’m a busy girl.

So, I uploaded all other pics.

Since a successful end to my cleanse, I have continued with the modified version (2 smoothies and a HEALTHY meal).
My total loss was 10 pounds and I continue to be at 125. 125 is perfect in my case given my height and age. However, I am thinking about doing the cleanse again soon; not to lose weight, but to get rid of Xmas/new yrs/vacation toxins 🙂

I have to admit that my eating habits completely changed. I continue to crave fruits and veggies on a daily basis. To me, that is the most interesting part of all. I continue to indulge in buffalo wings and beer over the weekends and my results continue to be the same. By The way, on the weekends I rarely drink smoothies; I eat 2-3 meals and feel just fine. However, and once again, my meals are healthy. I kinda became a pescetarian, all I eat is fish and lots of veggies.

On another note, I gave a try to three different things mentioned in the book: sea-salt water flush (I add a lime to it to make it easier to drink) and oh my if I recommend it, it makes me feel digestively clean :). I also bought Mag07 and wow! JJ Smith is right about those pills, are a great way to stay regular and help your digestive system stay healthy. Finally, I did the liver cleanse (8oz water and 2tbs apple cider vinegar) and my waist has gotten thinner.

I continue to go to the book all the time. I get recipes from there, and I just go back to her various tips.

Since I bought another book with hundreds of green smoothie recipes. I like JJ Smith’s recipes better because are less sweeter, but nonetheless, the other book helps me keep up with my routine too.

I developed a method: Once a month I get a shopping list ready. I separate all recipes on Ziploc bags and freeze them. The night before I take them out and done! I waste no time making my daily dose of health.

I also bought a Ninja blender. Mine was a small one and I had to make a smoothie at a time (no time for that in the am). I’m totally in love with my new blender because I make 2-3 cups of the same smoothie at once.

Feel free to ask me questions.

I continue to recommend the book. I’m also very active in JJ Smith’s Twitter account because the program worked like a charm in my case. I love my new eating habits and how I feel in general, and that’s all thanks to JJ Smith.

Last note: people constantly compliment me on my skin and hair, people do notice my weight loss, and people continue to talk about how cheerful I am most of the time which I find hilarious given how grumpy I am ha!
