I have to tell you I haven’t done the 10-day green smoothie cleanse so I can’t really attest to the outcome. That being said, this book includes the how-tos, ingredients and preparation, the authors personal tips for success, as well as what to do after the cleanse to continue a weight loss plan and maintain healthier living.
The book includes other recipes as well and several testimonials from people that have tried the ‘10-day Smoothie Cleanse’.
I definitely will be trying this in the near futu

Best health book I have ever purchased

Best health book I have ever purchased

My husband has been following the recipes in this book for eight weeks. He went to the Doctor
yesterday to find out all of his medical numbers have improved drastically....
Cholesterol has dropped forty points..... blood pressure.......
besides the fact that he has lost over thirty pounds, he feels like a new man.

JJ Smith makes a life changing experience very simple. I began reading the book just a few days before starting the cleanse and was easily motivated to not waste time and get started. The book provides shopping lists for the tasty smoothies to start you on your journey. I've juiced before and the setup and cleanup were just too time consuming. JJ's methods were easy to implement. I'm only on Day 1 and so far so good. No matter how tough the next few days might be, I will use the testimonials and ...more

I am planning on starting this cleanse on Monday. I will hold off my rating til then.

3/17 I am on my 6th day and I am still on it, strong.

First day and second day were hardest. I had intense cravings, but I held it off. Don't get me wrong, if I smell food, trust me, I'd crave that. But it's not as bad.

For the cleanse, each day, you have to prepare a smoothie about 48 oz. and replace your meals with that. The smoothie is divided in three for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In between meals, yo

The book pretty much delivers on what it promises. I don't think I feel more energetic though. But I did lose 10 lbs in 8 days so I can't really argue with the results, though most of that 10 lbs is likely fluid. Some days were definitely harder than others in terms of cravings but now that I'm about to go back to regular food I actually don't even know what I want to eat!

The number one rule when it comes to this is to keep yourself busy. When you're bored you think about food. Heck, that's one

This Smoothie Cleanse actually works if you have the will-power to endure the first three days. I soldiered through the first ten days and it worked so well. I lost a pound a day. Around the fourth day, I literally felt light and free, like all of the world's poisons has been washed from my body. I intend to keep doing this cleanse at least 3-4 times a year. My second go at it, I convinced my better half to try the cleanse. He loves it as well, losing 14 pounds in 10 days. This is a great way to ...more
There was a lot of questionable nutritional advice. I don't think people need cleanses. Our bodies will cleanse themselves as soon as we stop putting poisons into them. The advice wasn't all bad, but I wouldn't refer people to this book for dietary information.

However, I still rated this book three stars and would recommend it to others because it has a lot of great smoothie recipes and ideas that don't involve difficult-to-find ingredients.

It works...

If you stick with it - it works!!! There are so many recipes so you won't get bored. I loved the fact there's a modified version of the cleanse.

Go ahead... make that change!

I searched out this book after seeing testimonies on Facebook. After getting very sick, (At one point I was taking 37 pills including steroids and 3 nebulizer treatments a day) I tried juicing. It was quite expensive but I found that I loved the recipes and did not find myself getting hungry. Overall I felt a little bit better and was able to breathe with more ease. Yet I was not able to play outside with my children, date my husband, entertain friends . . . do the things which matter most in th ...more

I like it but the author confuses me. First she says don't eat corn, then lists popcorn as a snack. She talks about how animal protein is hard for the body to digest and at this point I think she is a vegetarian, then the recipes in the back if the book all contain meat. I am a vegetarian and no way am I eating those things. She also says it's not a starvation diet, which to me is exactly what felt like. They said it would get easier as u go but for me hunger just got worse. I am happy with the ...more

I really, really want to be healthy.

But I love tacos and cake.

Also relatable:

That being said, I am super excited to try this. I normally avoid detoxes and cleanses but I need a mental reset and a pat on the butt. I did a quick read through and I found the grocery list to be a helpful addition. The list being divided into two grocery trips to ensure freshness is a bonus.

Final review will come after I get through the 10 days....

Very Informative!!!

This book made me realize so many things I didn't before. I have not been a fan of vegetables, but to see that there is an easy way to get them in, has helped. I am going to start the cleanse in seven days and hope that I get the full benefit.....not just weight loss.

I liked the recipes, but I wasn't fully attempting the "smoothie cleanse." Just trying to figure out new ways to incorporate spinach into my smoothies, to boost my iron, omega-3s, and other vitamins. I once tried making one with kale -- my first and last try. Tasted like fresh grass clippings.

If you are looking to lose weight, increase your energy, have mental clarity, better sleep and digestion, or less bloating, the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse may be just what you need to detoxify your body and reach your goals. Do not mistake best-selling author JJ Smith’s Smoothie Cleanse for a diet book; this book is about making a lifestyle change through a detox cleanse. Yes, there is the added bonus that you may lose up to 15 pounds in 10 days, however, Smith wants this cleanse to be the fi ...more

The reason you lose weight drinking these smoothies is because that's ALL you eat/drink: 3 smoothies/day. And it ain't much!! The average is 1 handful of veggies and 1 fruit/ handful of grapes *per* meal.

If I had enough willpower to eat next to nothing for 3 days, it wouldn't just be smoothies.
Saw this on the Steve Harvey show. :-) Short and sweet! Easy to read and understand. The author did an excellent job providing additional information! She also provides tips and advice tucked between the pages. I skipped the success stories and testimonials...meh.

Gonna give it a go!

This was an amazing journey. This book is awesome. It showed me how healthy eating and better choices is a lot easier than I thought. The recipes are fantastic and something that I can use for the rest of my life.

I heard about this from a friend and thought, "What the hell, I'll try it for science."

Okay, so the first thing I don't love about this book is that it is 75% fluffy filler (SO MANY PAGES OF TESTIMONIALS WHY), 20% smoothie recipes, and 5% about why you need to cleanse your colon (sorry no that sounds awful and gross).

The second thing I don't love is the secret Jesus laced throughout the book, which came up with vague references about cleansing your body for "spiritual" effects and showed up full

I loved this book! I never thought I could be one of those people who drank green smoothies and enjoyed it. The recipes in this book contained enough fruit that I wasn't completely disgusted by the taste.

The book includes a shopping list for the 10 day cleanse and lots of additional recipes for smoothies that provide various health benefits.

I am adding this cleanse to my list of favorite healthy eating books. Nearly a month after finishing my cleanse, I have kept off the pounds and inches I lost

I gotta be honest, the information is repetitive and looks like someone with a middle school education wrote it, but I'm giving it 5 stars because it's legit. I did the modified cleanse and lost 7 lbs in 10 days, breaking through a plateau that I've been sitting at for over a year. I've recommended this book to others. It's pretty easy to follow and it definitely works. The author stresses that this is not a diet but a lifestyle change, and I would have to agree. Eating more fruits and veggies i ...more

Finished this smoothie cleanse today. It was better than I expected. (The first couple days were very difficult.) I ended up losing a little over 10 pounds, I have a lot more energy, and I'm no longer craving sweets and junk food. I plan on incorporating green smoothies into my daily routine (probably for lunch). Definitely would recommend it. If you can make it past days 2 & 3, you'll end up loving this cleanse! ...more

Starvation diet

The amount of ingredients for your daily smoothies is NOWHERE NEAR ENOUGH, I was horrified, and had to re read the recipes to make sure that I was reading them correctly.
You would need one of the recipes 3 times a day, not one split into all you drink for a whole day.

It may not be the easiest thing I've ever tried but the recipes look so yummy I can hardly wait to try it. I drink smoothies and shakes most days doing the summer so this will be the perfect way to get myself going in the right direction with my health. Stay tuned!!!

I've read many books on health and nutrition and this was one of the best! It's short, simple, and to the point. I now feel well-informed and look forward to getting started on my ten day cleanse. I'd highly recommend this to anyone who is committed to a lifestyle change.

This was so easy to understand and follow! JJ gives a very thorough explanation of how the cleanse works, and includes 10 easy and delicious smoothie recipes, as well as a complete grocery list.

I lost 10 pounds in 9 days by following this book. I will definitely be revisiting it in the future!

I have been a fan of JJ Smith for a while. I finally got to read this book and I absolutely loved it. This cleanse is very simple to follow and you will see results. I plan on doing a green smoothie cleanse every season.
