Thread: Grammy's inflammation smoothie...daily?

  1. #1

    Grammy's inflammation smoothie...daily?

    Hello,

    Just wondering...as long as the calories are added to the daily total of the 500 calorie limit, is it adventageous to have a daily or every other day inflammation smoothie ala Grammy? Any contraindications?

    I plan to have a smoothie daily for the first few days of this round to help in getting rid of the loading "malaise". VLCD One begins tomorrow. But maybe I should continue the practice

    Thoughts?

    Thank you,

    Cindy

    You can if you wish. You would be drinking one of your vegetable portions and using your lemon allotment.

    Thank you.

    Lemon or lime ok? Or is a lime considered a fruit serving, such as an apple? Only lemon is the extra?

    You are allowed the juice of one lemon per day. That is in addition to your two fruit servings.

    Lemon is on protocol. Lime is not mentioned, so that would be considered an experiment.

    If you have a major overnight gain, it can be from inflammation caused by a food sensitivity, over-worked muscles, or somekind of trauma. The inflammation smoothie is helpful to calm any of that down and let the retained water exit your body more quickly.

    This is best used as either your first or last meal of the day.

    Coco, one of our moderators, uses it in place of dinner on a "steak" day.

    You can switch it out for lemon if you are in P2. You would also eliminate one of the veggies, since protocol does not allow mixing of veggies at the same meal. I'd leave out the celery.
