4 week follow up

December 16th was my fourth completed week of incorporating a tip, suggestion or idea from Dr Oz’s many many shows. How did I feel?

In one word – GREAT! I’ve cut down on snacking, have religiously added Chia seeds and raspberry Ketones to my daily intake, I’ve increased my exercise and have incorporated more green into my meals.

Results as of Dec 16th – I’m now off one of my high blood pressure medication (one left to eliminate), I’ve lost 5.5 lbs and my blood pressure is average to low. My blood sugars are down, and I sleep better at night. Is this all due to the changes? in part yes, but also some of the changes I had already started adding to my daily life.

I’ve become more aware of nutrition (there’s a lot of great articles on Dr Oz’s website) and often read additional materials based on the information gathered from the main site.

Life is grand!

Week 4 – Day 7

Dr Oz’s green drink

My good friend Sylvie was the one who introduced me to Dr. Oz’s green drink. She had me try it at her home, and I loved it. In fact, when on our Mazatlan holiday, Sylvie arranged with the morning kitchen chef to have him make us this drink for breakfast. I can tell you that almost every morning we had curious guests asking us about the drink.

the recipe is as follow:
Ingredients
2 cups spinach
2 cups cucumber
1 head of celery
1/2 inch or teaspoon ginger root
1 bunch parsley
2 apples
Juice of 1 lime
Juice of 1/2 lemon

Directions
Combine all ingredients in a blender. This makes approximately 28-30 ounces, or 3-4 servings.

This drink is high in fiber, low in calories and tastes great!
