Daily Green Smoothies
Whenever I share my story with everyone about my good health report I always tell them about the green smoothies and the fast I did to get closer to God, so everyone alway ask did God heal me or did the green smothies heal me. I tell them that God lead me to you, who has the knowledge of good eating that has the power to heal. Thank You Haley for doing what you do. God Bless you always.
I am writing to tell you first and foremost that a bunch of friends of mine have hopped on the "green smoothie" train and have had great success:-) I talk about it all the time and mention you and your website (of course!) It is spreading like wildfire!!!!
My husband is a Georgia boy who eats such nasty things has steamed cabbage. Due to a "traumatic" childhood experience, I can't stand the stuff. The smell alone brings on fits of violent wretching. So when I brought home a purple cabbage, he raised an eyebrow. When he saw me watching your smoothie video where you use a green cabbage, I thought he was going to start swooning. I won't cook the nasty stuff, but I did make a red cabbage/banana/strawberry/orange smoothie this morning. It was so good (even if it was the color of Barney).
I was diagnosed with thyroid disease in 1997 after the birth of my second son. I hate taking pills and have never been good about taking the thyroid meds. Every year the doctor tells me my thyroid is too "this" or too "that". I've asked for years if there is something I can do to heal the thyroid and get off the meds. Every time I've been told, "No, it's a chronic condition and you'll need medicine for the rest of your life." I found it interesting that Victoria Boutenko's husband was able to help his thyroid problems with his diet.
However, I dreaded going to the doctor two weeks ago for my yearly physical. I had only been drinking green smoothies for a few weeks and that was the only change I'd made to my diet.
So today, the doctor's office called with the results of my blood work. Although, my vitamin D level is lower than it was last year (and it was already low then), my thyroid levels came back normal! I don't know if it's the green smoothies, but I'm not stopping now
I've been drinking Green Smoothies for 5 Months:-) I can't attest to any specific health improvements as I didn't really have any ailments in the first place. I will say, however, that I haven't been sick since January despite my young daughter having MANY colds this winter! Energy wise it has been awesome. I used to HAVE to drink coffee every morning and now I only have it once or twice a week socially.
I started a 10-day green smoothie challenge about 7 months ago. I have kept going ever since. I love moving closer and closer to a 100% raw diet. My immune system is so strong and my skin now glows.
I've been doing green smoothies for about 10 days now. I'm loving it!! Today I was able to skip my morning coffee! I've *never* done that before *ever*!
7 Day Detox Program
"I've lost at least 8 pounds in the past seven days. Possibly more because I didn't weigh in when I started. I just have my weight from the last time I checked.
I can tell you that I feel wonderful, better in control of my anxiety, and I finally fit in my pre-pregnancy jeans! The weight loss is a bonus as I set on this journey to regain my health!!! Thank you so much! I've loved all the smoothies and will continue to add them into my diet."
Yes, I did make it through the detox and never nibbled on anything that wasn't in the plan!
In addition, I've lost 6 lbs! It has been an interesting 7 days, and after day three I began to feel better.
Now, I must stick with it. Already made my breakfast smoothie for tomorrow. I appreciated all your e-mails and health information. They offer much food for thought. Definitly must rethink and revise the old eating habits. Now, armed with the proper tools, a new plan can be made.
Thanks for a very educational and successful week.
I had a woman take the 7 Day Detox Program and go for 21 days - I love when people choose to do that, it's amazing what your body can do in that time! 7 Days would be the minimum to see great results, but the longer you detox - the more your body heals, repair, detoxes, sheds weight, etc. Here are her results:
"The constant full, bloated tummy is completely gone and it is very flat!!!
Yes, I lost 12 lbs and I am completely fine with where my weight is now.
My eyesight has improved and at 61 yrs young, I no longer need reading glasses for extremely fine print now!!
My skin is softer and the bags under my eyes are gone. Cheap face lift!! LOL
I have no more digestion discomfort and my bowel movements are wonderful!!
I have loads of energy and have the ability to sleep soundly for 6 hours waking very refreshed. I use to have difficulty waking refreshed after 10 hrs of sleep.
My cardio endurance at the gym has greatly improved.
I am emotionally calmer and more mentally focused.
Hopefully, I have not left anything out.
Praise God that the Lord lead me to you, Haley. Thank You, again."
"The detox definitely helped with my pain. I always have a lot of neck pain, but I have yet to take any advil since the first two days of the detox. This is huge for me."
"I feel good! I have so much energy! I lost 6 pounds and my skin is even more clear and younger looking than before!"
"My weight started at 195.6 ending at 184.2. Went hiking yesterday @ Thunderbird trails. We now are able go to the gym every other day, and my clothes are looser!"
"Last Monday I began a Green smoothie Detox to last 7 days! Just a whole bunch of fruits and vegetables blended up into drinks was all I had for every meal the entire time! Today, I am 8 lbs lighter, energy level I have never felt before, and have kicked my caffeine addiction. Not only was it the most tasty detox I have ever done, it was also the most satisfying!! Thank you for introducing me to this way of eating! My entire family also enjoyed the wonderful, healthy smoothies so it will definitely be something I will continue to add into my daily life!"
"Mama with eight week old baby with bad acid reflux and sleeping issues. She detoxed for him: NO reflux meds after the first day of the detox! Also, wonderful sleep for both mom and baby, and increased energy for mom. Praise God!"
"Stats for a Husband/Wife on the Green Smoothie Detox: Wife lost exactly 10 lbs. and 1.7% BMI on her journey. Her skin is more moist, and she does feel her energy level is much better. Husband lost 10.3 lbs. and 1.48% BMI. His energy level is high, He doesn't feel as full (stuffed), and his breath isn't as nasty as it was before!!!! He also hasn't been using his Advair for this week, with NO adverse effects, and has not taken any Prilosec, also with NO adverse effects. Altogether, this has been a great improvement in both of their sense of well being."
"I feel real good this morning much much lighter although Im not sure I lost weight I don't own a scale. But maybe so. There is a spring in my step and just feel good. Even skin not so dry, my eyes appear brighter and complexion better. Thanks for all the prayers and I will do the detoxing again down the road"
"Here are all my highlights: Major increase in energy – especially around my normal lull at 2pm, Beautifully glowing skin, Clear eczema!, Clear skin in other problem areas such as my arms and legs, POSITIVITY!, No depression, No anxiety (well, I take that back, I have anxiety now about what solid foods I’ll be consuming), Sleeping better, Wake up before the alarm clock!! More rested and ready to live another beautiful day! LOST 13 POUNDS! And never felt hungry."

"I must say some of my goals came through. My skin is more clear than it has been in a long while, weight definitely came off, started to get more energy toward the end, and I must say I've never appreciated wanting & craving the entire fruit or vegetable as I do now. I also feel like my sense of smell as heightened, and again how much I appreciated the wonderful smells of fruit and vegetables."
"I have so much more energy and can not sit still. I lost a total of 12 pounds which is amazing, i knew I would lose some but didn't think it would be 12 pounds. I have so much more energy and a new self confidence that I haven't had in years. My cravings for sweets and carbs is totally gone. My mind is clearer and I am sleeping like a baby now. I felt so good that I started back to a woman's bootcamp I am continuing with the green smoothies since they made me feel amazing. I can't say thank you enough for the motivation and prayers you have helped me to get my life back. I haven't had this much energy and confidence for at least 15 years. Thank you so much Haley."
"Besides the amazing weight loss, my mind is clear, I have better focus, I definitely have a lot more energy and drive, and I feel great. My skin is clearer. My legs have bruises from where, I don't know! I imagine the detox did more behind the scenes then I can ever imagine."
"Woot! Woot! This have been a great 7 days! I went into the 7 Day Green Smoothie Detox with the following goals:
To feel more energy.
To focus better.
To have clear skin.
To lose 2 pounds.
To get rid of toxins.
To eat healthy.
To prepare myself to eat a raw vegan breakfast and lunch each day after the detox.
I have accomplished all these things including a half pound more than I planned! I have learned that having a menu planned out for the week and knowing exactly what I'm going to eat is a great stress reliever for me."
