If you have the opportunity, find a copy of the documentary "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead." It is about an Australian who dieted across America from the East Coast to the West Coast. He made the trip in 60 days, and using a green juicing diet, lost 100 pounds on that trip.
My sister told me about the documentary. She and her husband started drinking Fruit Smoothies as meal replacements for breakfast and lunch. They eat a regular evening meal. In 60 days, she has lost 25 pounds, and her husband has lost 55 pounds.
I started the diet two weeks ago tomorrow. When I started I weighed 306. This morning I weighed 288. And that is without any exercise! I plan on continuing drinking the frozen fruit smoothies for two meals per day until I am down to around 200 pounds. I am a 75 year old male, who is in reasonably good health otherwise.
Sorry about the reference to MFP. I posted this message on that site as well. I have been a LiveStrong.com web site user for about 8 years, and am looking for a website where I can make it easy to input my daily intake of food since I drink a Frozen Fruit Smoothie for breakfast and lunch each day, and do not want to go to the trouble of inputting EACH INGREDIENT for each meal.
I also have pictures (jpg format) of the food items and nutritional label that I would like to upload. I used to be able to do that in LiveStrong.com, but it seems less user friendly now and will not allow such uploads. Does SparkPeople.com allow these uploads?
I started on a Frozen Fruit Smoothie diet about 10 days ago. I fix enough of the recipe each morning for two meals, breakfast and lunch. Is there a way on the myfitnesspal.com website where I can enter the meal one time and then copy it for the rest of the meals that I substitute the Smoothie in place of a regular meal? It would be too much trouble to list the ingredients every single time (2 times a day) when I had the meal.
