IntroductionCongratulations on taking control of your health by caring for your body and feeding it what it needsto be slim, healthy, and vibrant! If you’re like me, you really want to look and feel great!Battling excess weight can be one of the most frustrating, challenging, and emotionally drainingexperiences on earth. Many people struggle with a never-ending battle to lose weight and get healthy.Despite the numerous fad diets, exercise regimens, and magic pills for weight loss, Americanscontinue to grow larger and larger year after year. Diets abound, and the diet industry is huge. But thesad fact is that about 95 percent of people who lose weight on a diet gain it back in three to five years.You cannot lose weight permanently by strictly following any special diet, taking a weight-loss pill, orfollowing an exercise regimen. You have to realize that losing weight involves a major lifestylechange.What do I mean by lifestyle change? First, you will have to forget about dieting! Typically, you “goon” a diet, which implies that at some point you “go off” it. A typical diet is something you do for aspecified period of time. What usually happens when you “go off” the diet? You gain all the weightback. With this ten-day cleanse, we are going to retrain your taste buds to desire and crave healthierfoods so you never have to think about dieting again.I believe the first step in losing weight is detoxification. Without detoxification, millions of peopleworldwide lose the fight to lose weight permanently. There are many factors that contribute to weightgain, and one factor that is most overlooked by traditional diets is toxic overload. Simply put, peopleoften have difficulty losing weight because their bodies are full of poisons. The more toxins you takein or are exposed to every day, the more toxins you store in fat cells in the body. Toxins stored in fatcells are difficult to get rid of through dieting alone. You must first detoxify the body. Thus, the mosteffective weight-loss programs should focus on both fat loss and detoxification, which lead to overallimproved health and wellness.I am a nutritionist, a certified weight-loss expert, author of the #1 bestseller Lose Weight WithoutDieting or Working Out, and creator of the Detox-Eat-Move (DEM) System. For years, I’ve helpedpeople lose weight without dieting so they can get their sexy back! The DEM System focuses onhelping you detoxify, cleanse, and reset your taste buds so that you desire healthy, natural foods.Why I Created the 10-Day Green Smoothie CleanseLast year, after years of clean, healthy eating and detoxing, I was bedridden with mercury poisoningfrom my silver dental fillings! I had high levels of mercury in my brain, gut, liver, and kidneys. Icouldn't get out of bed for two months. And when I did, just making the bed required that I lie back
down to rest! My health, energy and motivation were at an all-time low.After a long and slow recovery last year, I decided I needed to do something to get my health andenergy back, as well as lose the twenty pounds I had gained while bedridden. I created the 10-DayGreen Smoothie Cleanse after learning how raw greens can heal the body. Also, already an advocate ofdetoxing, I knew I needed to rid my body of excess waste and toxins that had accumulated as a resultof the mercury poisoning.Once I created the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, I asked if I could get ten of my family membersand friends to do it with me for support. I was pleasantly surprised to find that about 100 of themwanted to do it! We created a Facebook group to keep one another motivated. Because the results wereso phenomenal, in less than two months we had about 10,000 people join the Facebook group anddecide to do the cleanse with us. In just ten days, folks were losing ten to fifteen pounds, gettingenergized, reversing health conditions, and feeling better than they had in years.When I completed my first cleanse, I lost eleven pounds. My energy was high, my skin was radiant,and my digestion and bloating had improved. I felt renewed and motivated again! Before I began thecleanse, I had been taking twenty-four supplements a day to help my body recover from mercurypoisoning. Since completing the cleanse, I have been taking only four supplements per day. I havesuch a positive outlook on my health and look forward to getting back to focusing on my life dreamsand goals.The 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse is a detox program that will help you lose weight, increaseenergy, reduce cravings, and improve overall health. You will detoxify your body through eliminationof certain foods for ten days and reprogram your taste buds to desire healthy, nutrient-rich foods.After you complete the cleanse, you will never have to count calories or follow complicated orexpensive meal plans or measure food again. Your body will naturally crave and desire healthy,natural foods.During the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, you will give your body the quality nutrition it needswhile cleansing your cells and insides. Vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients will be absorbed byyour body more efficiently, allowing your cells to become like new as you begin to look and feelyounger.

When the body is overloaded with toxins, it transfersenergy away from burning calories to work harder to detoxify the body. In other words, the body doesnot have the energy to burn calories. However, when the body is efficiently getting rid of toxins, theenergy can be used to burn fat.Simply put, traditional diets so often don’t work because they don’t address the toxic waste in thebody. Counting calories does not detoxify and cleanse the body. Weight loss won’t be permanent ifyour body’s systems are sluggish or impacted with waste matter or toxins. You must first rid yourbody of toxins to ensure that your body can best metabolize the food you eat without leaving excesswaste, which results in weight gain.The following symptoms indicate the presence of excess toxins in the body: bloating, constipation,indigestion, low energy, fatigue/brain fog, depression, weight gain, chronic pain, infections, allergies,headaches, and gut/digestion problems.Do You Need to Detox/Cleanse?
