For some of you who have been following me on social media, you all now how much I love green juices and how I drink them daily.
Having a "Green Juice" a day has really changed the way I feel,the way I look,and overall my relationship with food.
After having my second daughter I gained about 20Lbs on top of what I had already gained during pregnancy which left me with about 45 lbs extra doing what we spanish people call "dieta" which means diet but it isn't a typical "diet" we usually do it after having a baby which consists of not leaving the house for 40 days,wrapping your stomach with a corset or a waist trainer or spanx whatever you have available to make sure you don't have flabby skin afterwards , and of course the most important thing is the food. We eat liver and beets to help us with blood reconstitution,lots of herbal teas and remedies, a lot of dairy products because of the belief that "milk makes milk" which is totally not true, giving the fact that I barely made any, and fruits and veggies but in my case it was a mostly an animal product feast.
So after seeing myself 20 lbs + I decided to look for something that will really make a drastic change in the way I felt.I was feeling tired,sluggish,moody and oh so not very happy with the way I looked. So searching up online I came with DR.Alejandro Junger website https://www.cleanprogram.com. I immediately purchased the book and started the program the following monday. I did a 21 day program and have never looked back.Its ben almost 7 years. Not only I shed almost 17 lbs in those 21 days but my skin,my energy levels and my mood where drastically changed. I have done so many diets so many programs and I can say for sure that having one Green juice a day will significantly change your health.
