My quirky weight-loss strategies, part 2 of 3

I yo-yo like everybody else. (Women can gain and lose 4 lbs. in a week, simply from hormone changes within a cycle and accompanying water retention.) But I yo-yo within a 5-lb. variation. A year ago I dropped 7 lbs., and quickly, because of some stresses in my life. That is highly unusual, though. I […]

My quirky weight loss strategies, part 1 of 3

So, I’ve never written about this because….. First, weight loss is my least-favorite topic ever.   I think it’s boring and pointless because, to me, it happens permanently ONLY as a byproduct of focusing on eating the right foods for your health. There aren’t one set of foods for heart health, a different set of […]

The Rest of the Story with Rich the Pharmacist. Part 2 of 2.

I don’t buy that baloney. (In more ways than one.) If you eat hot dogs and soda on a regular basis, you’re almost certainly spending lots of money on doctor bills. Or you’re about to, as springs start to break loose in your internal box spring. Your health insurance company is going broke, too. I […]

The rest of the story with Rich the Pharmacist. Part 1 of 2.

So here’s the rest of the story with Rich, my first high-school boyfriend. I told you how I ran into him on the plane on his way to pharmacists’ immunization training, and he helped us out in Seattle. I told him, as we reminisced, that before I straightened out my lifestyle, I was 26 and […]

Portland, part 2 of 3

I met Nita, whose blood sugar dropped 100 points a week after starting her 3-pint-a-day green smoothie habit in September. Her A1C test dropped 3 points, which is HUGE. She’d had bypass surgery, and thanks to 12 Steps habits, she got her energy back. She said the week she bought 12 Steps, she was looking […]

green smoothies the best way to lose weight EVER

850 of you, my friends, are going strong on the detox, and I hope you’re enjoying the rewards of it and not suffering from too many “overloaded systems” issues! I had a meeting at BlendTec this week and stopped into their Customer Support to meet a half-dozen employees who are doing the detox. I saw […]

Back from Africa: Green Smoothies, Detox, and Dr. Oz

I’m just back after 2 weeks in Africa, perhaps the most amazing trip of my life. I’ll show-n-tell about it this week. Meantime, I’m getting a late start on our detox, but I’m on it! Are you? I’m doing half a gallon of green smoothies daily, and 100% raw, for the rest of January. When […]

World-Wide Green Smoothie Detox starts Jan. 2!

How are you holding up against the gingerbread and butter tarts so far? What about those buttery mashed potatoes and gravy? Maybe you’ve been avoiding the bowls of salty, roasted cashews and chocolate-covered almonds, but MOST of us end up overeating during the holidays. Fortunately, January 1st comes quickly and is the ideal time to […]

drink green smoothies all day and lose weight

You could literally drink green smoothies till you’re full, all day long, and still lose weight. If you drank TWO GALLONS a day (that’s 8 quarts), you would get only 1500 calories. That 100 fewer calories than someone my height and weight needs, even if I don’t exercise, daily! I’ve been accidentally saying the wrong […]
