More than a weight loss plan, the 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, designed by nutritionist and certified weight-loss expert JJ Smith, became a way of life. Readers reported that they not only shed pounds but they also slept better, thought more clearly, and were in better over-all health, with some adherents, in consultation with their doctor, even moving off medication. As delicious as her green smoothies are, however, the cleanse was designed only to jumpstart a detox and a new approach to eating--it's not a permanent solution.
In her new book, Green Smoothies for Life, the highly anticipated follow up to the #1 New York Times bestseller 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, Smith presents a way that green smoothies can be incorporated into your daily regimen. With over thirty recipes for everything from hot dinners to desserts and snacks, sixty thoughtfully composed green smoothie recipes, a thirty-day meal plan and the corresponding shopping lists, the book provides you with a step-by-step prescriptive daily regimen that shows you how to eat mindfully and healthily. In addition to green smoothies and color photographs of select recipes, the book includes more than twenty effective methods to detox (which helps fuel weight loss), information on Smith's DHEMM (Detox, Hormonal Balance, Eat, Move and Mental Mastery) weight loss system, and testimonials from dieters who've change their approach to not just food but also life since while following her advice.
Whether you are just starting out on your weight loss journey or already a smoothie convert, Green Smoothies for Life is the essential next step in continuing your pursuit of a healthier lifestyle.

In this familiar health guide, nutritionist Smith (10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse) shifts her attention to weight loss, detailing recipes for green smoothies as well as meals, snacks, and desserts. Smith claims, improbably, that readers will never need another diet after this program because their bodies will naturally crave healthy, natural foods. Intended to be used after 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, the book provides a 30-day meal plan and new recipes for lifelong eating. Part one covers the 30-day program and includes a full meal plan for each day, with guidelines and steps for how to shop for and prepare meals such as a peachy pineapple or blueberry spinach smoothie, shrimp and green bean salad, and banana strawberry ice cream. Part two reviews 21 detoxification methods for weight loss and health such as acupuncture, Bikram yoga, colonics, liver cleansing, and parasite cleanse. Part three shares success stories from those who have completed Smiths program, and part four covers the DHEMM (detox, hormonal balance, eat clean, mental mastery, move) system, which she claims will get results even without a fitness regimen. This book will appeal to Smiths current readers, but fitness enthusiasts would be well advised to consult qualified medical professionals before relying on her books advice. (Dec.)
