If you want to Lose Weight and get healthy at the same time here are some great ways to de-tox the body and achieve your weight goals… some people have even lost as much as 20 pounds in 20 days.
Green and red drinks are great for helping you to lose weight and also de-tox your body… and at the same time boost your energy, get rid of aches and pains by getting rid of inflammation, boost your immune system, lower your chances of coming down with heart disease and strokes, lower your cholesterol and triglycerides, and help you feel great once again. Plus cravings for sweets and carbs seem to disappear!
Chlorophyll will oxygenate your blood giving you more energy and allowing your body to help build more red blood cells. Greens like spirulina are mostly protein (up to 70% protein) so they are great for muscle building too! And you also have better joint health, your mind seems very clear, and you sooth away any problems with your GI tract at the same time.

Drink one 8 oz glass in the morning, as a morning snack, at noon, in the mid afternoon, and more if you feel hungry throughout your day… and then have a salad at night. Remember to experiment and change these juices to fit your exact needs.
