James Lautner: Green Smoothies Are a Weight-Loss Miracle

Robyn Openshaw - May 29, 2011 - This Post May Contain Affiliate Links

James Lautner weight loss

James came to our Bakersfield class with his girlfriend, and his grandma who has a brain tumor. He has an amazing story, found a year ago, where he wrote the day he found my blog. (His story is found in response to my musings on the book Eat, Pray, Love in June, 2010.)

Since then he has lost 90 POUNDS and can run and enjoy his life now! Here is his “BEFORE” photo, and here’s a little video of him talking to me after class. Do you have a story like this in you–but maybe you’re at the start of the journey?

GO JAMES! You’re an inspiration!

    Hey Robyn,

    A way around all the store noise is to use a seperate voice recorder with a clip on microphone. Have someone check out Tim Francis’s free course Your videos are inspiring and would be even more better with clearer sound. And it IS easy. I don’t do anything that isn’t!

    James, I love reading Robin’s blog and getting her e-newsletters. I was thrilled that she featured you on the latest e-newsletter. You look happy and healthy. And isn’t that what life should be about? Keep up the good work and keep on blending those green smoothies. Maybe you can add one of your fave green smoothie recipes to Robin’s book that is coming out soon. Take good care. Rita

  8. Fantastic post, well done James!

    I have lost 50lbs over the last year or so, mainly through juicing. I have also completed two half marathons, 18 months ago I could not even run for five minutes!

    Robyn once again Thank you for sharing! You have inspired soooooo many of us, it is like a wonderful germ that is spreading fast. I have given it to my friends and they are giving it to their friends and so on and so on. I went to lunch with a girlfriend today and she told me that she didn’t eat so well over the weekend and said she was having hot flashes bad. She said she has noticed that when she is on track with her green smoothies they are not nearly as bad. It is just one of the amazing things that this wonderful green smoothie is doing.

    James more power to ya!!!! Way to go! You are a rock star. Keep up the great work, you look awesome and it only gets better!

    Green Gooey hugs,

    Jill 🙂

    What an inspiration. How fab to meet Robyn in person and you look fantastic James – thanks for sharing your story.

    I think the Green Smoothies are amazing – I lost 9 kilos (I’m in Europe – the UK – so that’s about 15 lbs) to reach my target weight. I’m a flamenco dancer so it’s important that I look great in the slinky dresses! I did the 21 day detox – twice. I feel lighter and brighter and am studying nutritional healing so I can teach others how to do this. I learned in my last class how getting rid of toxins out of our cells literally lets in light so people glow – isn’t that wonderful.

    Robyn I did the 21 day Green Smoothie Detox and lost 9 pounds just during the 21 dayss! I can easily see how James lost the weight. Please keep the testamonials coming. They are an inspiration to all of us who still have a ways to go. I’m 63 and used to be a runner when I was in shape in my 30s. Now, because of James, I can invision possibly another time when I can feel the joy of running.

    How inspiring! I need to get committed — read Green Smoothie Girl’s book & when I follow raw food plan, really helps me with my lupus — inflammation dissipates.
