View Full Version : Green Smoothie weight gain
09-16-2006, 07:04 PM
Hello all! I've been raw for over 9 months, but I recently started increasing my greens intake by like quadruple by eating green smoothies. My skin cleared up fabulously (no more acne)! Also, a splinter that has been stuck in my hand for months finally came out! But my stomach feels funny, like gurgling feeling and bloated and I gained 5 pounds. Could this just be my body acclimating to all of the fiber in the greens? I really don't want to gain weight! What should I do? Thanks!

You might want to cut back on one of the smoothies. I think your body is detoxing. She's getting ready to erupt - look out! Might be like Mt. St. Helene's!!! :eek:

Hi! The only thing in the smoothies are bananas and green leafy plants (sometimes spinach, tender young greens, etc). I do "chew" them before swallowing. I usually drink one in the morning and one at night.

Thanks for your concern. I stopped eating so many green smoothies. I just eat one at night now. I'm feeling better. Thanks so much!
