In the meantime, I would definitely use greek yogurt as a base for your smoothie instead of water, to up the protein and calcium at least.
I admire your motivation and I do think green smoothies can add some great nutrition to your daily intake, but having some balanced meals would be more ideal. Perhaps you'd be willing to have your green smoothie for breakfast and then have two healthy meals the rest of the day? Just a thought.
I wish you great success and health.
Thanks LM. I am planning to drink the green smoothie for breakfast and 2 healthy meals per day after this week. I want to jumpstart the weight loss and feel "clean" before I go on the healthy route. I think I will be less likely to go back to my unhealthy habits when I feel light and clean.
The greek yogurt sounds great!
