Mike Murdoch’s amazing story!
I’ve announced it almost nowhere, so far, but we have a huge opportunity to start a business teaching green smoothie classes, soon to be followed by other nutrition education modules. Click “learn more” on GSGLife.com and watch my webinar there, to learn how to teach the classes you may have heard me teach. With your help, I intend for our message to go from 4 million to 40 million!

A longtime GSG fan, Mike Murdoch, signed up as our Instructor #156, and wrote us this inspiring story, to introduce himself:
Three years ago I met Robyn for the first time where I heard her speak. I was in a lot of pain and was needing to lose some weight. I was at a point in my life when I was willing to listen. My wife was the one who has always been into health, and I wasn’t really on board.
But when Robyn said you don’t have to change everything, just start with 10% of your diet, a light bulb went on in my head. I said, “I can do that!” She made it easy and possible.
At first I judged Robyn pretty harshly. I remember sitting there on my chair, waiting for the class to start. Robyn was up setting up the table and getting everything ready. There were about 300 people coming into the classroom. I had no idea who Robyn was. I was blown away with how many people were there.
As I was watching Robyn set up, I told my wife, “Look at her. She looks like a Barbie Doll. She looks perfect. She probably hasn’t ever had a problem with weight or anything. What is she going to teach me?” Pretty harsh words, but then the class started and I found myself eating my words and being humbled by her story and what she has gone through in life.
I learned you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. She was right on with the things that she said. I tuned in and was at the edge of my seat the whole time. I ate up every word she said, and I found myself becoming a believer in what a green smoothie might do for me. I couldn’t wait to buy a blender and start my adventure to better nutrition.
After that class, my wife and I purchase a high-speed blender and started to make green smoothies, and my wife became an expert. We went to follow up classes with Robyn. Wherever she was, I tried to be there. I brought people. Following her advice on changing my lifestyle.
I stopped eating sugar. She said it was more addictive than cocaine. I started to drink a quart of green smoothie every day. An amazing thing happened to me. In 10 months I had lost 35 lbs! I didn’t even exercise during this time, just followed Robyn’s programs and re-discovered whole foods. My aches and pains went away, and the best part was my energy went through the roof!
I couldn’t believe how much energy I started having because of this change. Fruits and veggies tasted so much better, too. I began to eat things I normally wouldn’t eat. I became a raw food lover and I want to share it with the world!
