NO Processed foods here
Here is a great combination to get you through your day. Cucumber, broccoli, celery, two green apples, one inch of ginger, carrots, pineapple and spinach. Perfect! Energy, vitamins, great digestion, and best of all, Happiness!
I'm not a guy who digs pure green drinks. So I mix a little sweetness into them. Not white or brown sugar, no, just some pineapple and apples will do it. Now I'm good to go!
I'm going through a stage in weight loss known as the "Plateau". All of my intake remains good, and workouts are steady. But the weight loss, which was averaging a pound a day just stalled. This is what is known as Plateauing. Through some wonderful advice from my very wise wife, and some outside investigation I learned a few things about plateau.
When your weight loss seems to flat out stall it is because your body is in preservation mode. It knows you have lost significant mass (fat) and it thinks you are starving it to death, so it stops. It throws up the stop sign and says we are not loosing any more weight. To get things back on track you have to drink more water, juice more and keep up with the exercise.
What happens to many who intend to loose weight is when they hit the plateau stage they often get discouraged and want to give up. My suggestion to you is DON'T. But you have to nourish and keep your body happy, so drink water, make more juice, and keep up the walking/running or whatever you are doing.
I never set out to loose weight, my goal has always been to get healthy and to feel better. Weight loss just happened as a bi product. Not a bad bi product if you ask me. So I'm doing my best to make it matter.
A helpful tip for you from me.

The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
