In case you have not noticed Kate Upton, has been caught in the media with her green smoothie, suggesting more than meets the eye!
Supposedly your skin will look more rejuvenated, your cells will become tighter and healthier. Aging, dull, dry skin; puffiness; dark circles; and wrinkles will start to fad away.
This cleanse will not help you feel older but you will feel younger again. You will also become energetic from the inside out.
Contributing to weight gain are the excess toxins within the body. When the toxins are present, energy is taken away from burning calories and devoted to removing toxins instead, this is JJ Smith’s belief.
following are signs of excess toxins: bloating, constipation, indigestion, low
energy, fatigue/brain fog, depression, weight gain, chronic pain, infections,
allergies, headaches, and gut/digestion problems.
1) You’ll drink up to 60 ounces of green smoothies per day. Drink one-third every three to four hours throughout the day or sip on the smoothies as you get hungry.
2) Throughout the day you may snack on apples, celery, carrots, cucumbers and other crunchy veggies. Other options are high-protein snacks that include unsweetened peanut butter, hard-boiled eggs, and raw or unsalted nuts and seeds (only a handful).
3) Drink at least eight glasses of water (64 ounces) per day as well as detox or herbal teas, as desired.
4) Perform one of two methods of colon cleansing as needed.
5) Stay away from refined sugar, meat, milk, cheese, liquor, beer, coffee, sodas/diet sodas, processed foods, fried foods and refined carbs (white bread, pastas, donuts etc.)
The smoothies are to consist of raw organic fruits, raw organic leafy greens and water in a highly recommended ratio of fruit to greens. The ratio is 6:4.
Greens to use in your smoothie include arugula, beet greens, bok choy, chard, collard greens, dandelion greens, kale, lettuce, mustard greens, parsley, spinach, and turnip greens.
Milder-tasting greens: baby beet greens, baby bok choy, butter lettuce, carrot top greens, kale, romaine lettuce, spinach and swiss chard.
Stronger-tasting greens: arugula, collard greens, dandelion greens, mustard greens, radish tops, sorrel, turnip greens and watercress.
The components of the smoothie are to be blended together instead of juiced. The smoothies are less expensive because it takes less fruit and vegetables to make a smoothie than it does to make the same size glass of juice.
The smoothies are a great source of protein that is easily digestible.
If you perform heavy workouts and long-workouts it is ok to add a protein
powder to your smoothie.
Make sure to only use green leafy veggies, fruits and water during the 10 day smoothie cleanse. No starchy veggies such as sweet potatoes, beets, carrots or any other veggie that are not leafy greens are permitted.
It is important that you have one to three bowel movements per day. If your bowels aren’t moving, neither are the toxins out of your body. Use the colon cleanse if you haven’t had a bowel movement in over 24 hours. Here’s how:
Method 1: The saltwater flush. Drink two teaspoons of sea salt in eight ounces of water to make it go down and then follow immediately with three more 8 ounce glasses of water.
Method 2: An effective method to remove old fecal matter residing in the colon is called Mag07. Take three to four pills at bedtime and expect a heavy bowel movement in the morning. This method has been effective for some time.
Depending on your initial toxin load you will experience certain detox symptoms. These detoxification signals are signs of progress. The signs are: 1) headaches, pains and nausea, 2) cravings, 3) fatigue, 4) muscle aches, 5) skin rashes and 6) irritability from not eating your favorite foods (you may want to avoid social events).
During your 10 day green smoothie cleanse you can expect to lose up to 15 pounds in just 10 short days. There are several benefits including improved energy levels, less bloating, reduced cravings and better sleep.
The protocol is 3 green smoothies per day in a ratio of fruit to greens of 6:4. 3 snacks should be consumed with the 3 shakes per day to keep your metabolism running strong. Snacks include apples, celery, carrots, cucumbers and other crunchy veggies.
It is recommended that you perform a colon detox using one of two methods if you don’t have a bowel movement during any 24-hour period. There is a list of foods to avoid, mentioned earlier. The better tasting fruits in your smoothie should counter the taste of the greens in the smoothie. Make sure to blend not juice your components. Some symptoms may arise during your 10 day smoothie period depending on your beginning toxic load.
I’ve read about detoxifying prior to weight loss as a means to break through weight loss plateaus and other barriers. I don’t think it is a bad idea. I know it can be really difficult to get rid of some of the toxins such as diet soda. I’m a big consumer of diet soda, so this is really difficult for me. I wouldn’t be surprised if you noticed plenty of benefit from you detoxification days. I surely hope to try this detox trial some day myself. Good luck!
