Green Smoothie Testimonials, Part 16

“I have spent all my adulthood overweight and miserable. My weight went from 135 to 280 during that time. Most of the time I had skewed ideas that I was either too fat (when I weighed 135) and not that fat (when I weighed 280). My perception was always off. But I did know that I just didn’t feel good.

I have been on Weight Watchers, the soup diet, hard boiled egg diet, Chinese tea, and every diet that came in magazines. I finally found that Atkins worked for me–three times! Funny that I would go off after several months and the weight would come back on, with its 30.-lb. friend! I realized that if I kept dieting that way I would completely ruin my health. I was so afraid to start another diet, so I decided to never diet again and just accept myself as I was.

I remarried at 210 lbs. and within 3 years had put on 70 lbs. with careless eating, primarily fast food. Then my DH was diagnosed with cancer (digestive related) and I found GreenSmoothieGirl.com. It was an answer to prayer because this is a LIFESTYLE–not a diet. In the last 9 mos. I have lost 40 lbs., my skin glows, I am nearly off the medications I was taking for high blood pressure, arthritic aches and pains, and mucus. My wrinkles also are going away!

I will NEVER diet again because I can eat everything I want and truly enjoy it (even chocolate). I am never hungry because I have God’s fast food with me all the time (fruits). I have found that the more raw I eat, the faster I lose weight. I am no longer fanatical about it and believe that my body will end up the weight I am supposed to be, not the way society says it should be. I just wish I had been able to learn this earlier in life.

Sorry about the long blog, but I feel that finding GreenSmoothieGirl.com and Robyn’s blog has saved my life! Thanks, Robyn and every one else!”

  1. Thanks for asking about my DH. He was diagnosed with esophagus cancer in 2007. Had surgery, radiation and chemo in 2008. Then we found GSG and started a new lifestyle. At first I was really diligent, lost a lot of weight and felt terrific. I was able to ditch a lot of my meds (HBP, joint aches, cholesterol). DH struggles with what he can eat post surgery so he has had a harder time recovering.

    Then we got a little lazy. Summer of 2009 found the cancer had spread. That remotivated us. His cancer has slowed now I think in part due to our GSG lifestyle, the herbal supplements I have found for him, and the chemo he will take the rest of his life. He has now outlived the 3 mos he was given – 3 times, and I think he has possible years to go. I am so glad that Robyn decided to go “public” and share her knowledge at the best price – free, or nearly free. I can’t imagine where we would be without GSG!

  2. I stumbled onto your website today after talking with my trainer, who is a Green Smoothie wacko. I’m intrigued. Absolutely so…..

    I’ve been diagnosed with adult onset asthma about 2 years ago, am 35+ # overweight and am so eager to try this….

    I’m thinking about going to and buying one of those mixers and giving it a whirl….no pun intended…

    I’ve been working out consistently, altered my diet a lot, but this might be what I NEED. I am so sick of having asthma….

  3. Wow Karen, that is great. It gives me hope that I can do the same. Your story sounds a lot like mine. I have tried all those same diets and lost with the high protein, only to gain it back. I found Raw foods a few months ago, but had a hard time in the beginning. Now, I have settled in and feel so much better. I hope I will be able to loose weight once my body readjusts to my yo yo dieting. Thanks for your testimonial. It gives me hope.

  4. I totally agree with Karen- I don’t obsess over weight loss anymore. I just know that eating like this will take me to where I need to be! That being said, I still step on the scale often because I love seeing the numbers go down so quickly! It is absolutely fabulous! And I feel amazing! And I don’t feel deprived at all! I have chocolate everyday! Just not in the form of candybars…
