Texas Part 3 of 7: Houston’s Stephanie–a Green Smoothie Transformation

Stephanie was smack on the front row in Houston, a gorgeous tiny little mom who has lost 50 lbs. doing green smoothies. (Check out her before-and-after photos!) Her husband was with her, and Stephanie said he’s gone from “couch potato to marathon runner.” Stephanie told me that despite the oohs and aaahs about how she […]

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 […]

obesity conference

This is an email I got from a GSG reader. Dr. Larsen is a dentist who studies nutrition to help his patients and practices what he preaches. His observations at the obesity conference he recently attended parallel my own, as documented sometimes on this blog. What do you think? Robyn, I attended a seminar in […]

Could use some advice…

I have been on my journey since July 27. At that time I started eating a raw food diet. I did this for about 5 weeks. I lost about 17 lbs. Then, I discovered greensmoothiegirl.com. I got the 12 Steps book and started living by this. I work out between 3-5 days a week for […]

I am so confused.   I have been drinking green smoothies for about 7 weeks now, which have replaced two of my meals because they are so filling, so delicious and full of such great stuff.   But I’m really not losing weight, and I had so hoped eating this way would cause my weight […]

do not read this unless you want to lose weight

You’re still reading . . . so I’m guessing you’ve “lost” weight only to find it again? A few times?   How many times in your life have you gained and lost 10 lbs.? Or 20?   Did you just sigh, thinking about how many times you’ve been through that?   So many people are […]

Who you gonna call, Part VIII top-secret advice!

So I just wrecked the pedestal underneath the Fat Diet Docs and celebs, the personal trainers, the network marketers’ pills, potions, and juices, and the blood type and metabolic typing docs. I hope you’re not feeling without answers.   Moms write me and tell me they read about nutrition and go to bed in tears […]

Who you gonna call, Part VII the guys telling you to eat for your “type”

Joe Mercola’s been hyping his metabolic typing program to his 1.5 million readers.   You, too, can pay big bucks for it, as soon as he’s done creating it.   He continues to tell people to eat lots of whey protein powder (which he sells) and avoid eating  grains, despite a massive body of evidence […]

Who you gonna call? Part III: nutrition advice from personal trainers

My friend Cheryl told me at the gym the other day that she got online with a “Virtual Personal Trainer.”   This guy has quite a following here locally and helped a friend of Cheryl’s.   She  said to the trainer, “I’m trying to be vegan.   Can you help me increase my muscle mass […]

Who you gonna call? Part II: I have more stuff to say about the diet docs

I thought I was done taking down the high-protein, fad-diet, doctor-scam-artists.   But I want to say a bit more, starting with this quote from “Dr. Atkins’ Health Revolution”:   “Imagine losing weight with a diet that lets you have bacon and eggs for breakfast, heavy cream in your coffee, plenty of meat and even […]
