I lost 56 pounds and recovered from chronic fatigue syndrome with a green smoothie diet.  I invented the filling Green smoothie called 'Green Thickies' as a healthy meal replacement smoothie.   I am passionate about helping people become healthy and reach their ideal weight. I post at least 2 new green thickie recipes on my website each week plus other articles about healthy living.  Come on over and take a look.
