The first Green Smoothie Inspiration of 2013 is Jeff, whose incredible weight loss story all but squashes any excuse you might have for not getting on the green smoothie bandwagon.
Here’s a guy who was almost 400 pounds, high triglycerides and cholesterol, and all of the other health issues that go along with obesity…that is, until he started drinking green smoothies and changing his life!
If you have an inspiring story about how green smoothies changed your life, send it to me. If I publish your story, I’ll send you a free Incredible Smoothies grocery tote bag!
Green Smoothie Inspiration: Jeff – Inverness, FL, USA
“I started drinking green smoothies on March 16, 2012. At the time, I weighed 392 pounds. I have lost 108 pounds in nine months [as of January 2013]. My triglycerides went from 465 down to 171! My cholesterol dropped from 249 down to 188!
I drink about 36 ounces of green smoothie per day (three 12-ounce glasses), made in my Magic Bullet. I eat about four to five times a day. I drink green smoothies in the morning. I usually have a salad for lunch and a decent dinner. I eat nuts or hard boiled eggs between meals for my protein. I also use a protein powder in my green smoothies.
I’m also working out four to six days a week. I’m doing at least five miles on the elliptical, walking two to three miles daily, and bike riding at least five miles each workout. Energy has been enormous.
Green smoothies have made me realize that I can be happy eating healthier when I see and feel the amazing results. This has been a positively motivating lifestyle change. I have family, friends and customers jumping on the bandwagon. I have about twelve people that I am helping. They encourage me and keep me motivated.
My ultimate weight loss goal is to get down to 250 pounds, which I plan to be at by March 2013. I am ecstatic with green smoothies. WHAT A RUSH!!!!”
