Its day four of the smoothie fast and so far so good. The wife and I have consumed nothing but these green beauties above (I’ve allowed myself coffee in the am). I’ve dropped six pounds in three days, I don’t feel hungry at all, and I’m not craving snacks or booze at night. Overall the Vitamix 5200 smoothie diet has been pretty darn good. I do have to say I miss having a hot meal so I’m looking forward to the weekend when I can chow down at a moderate to aggressive pace.
