The gal at the GNC store said to give it a week before looking for results, so I’m making the effort to drink it every day this week.
It’s taking a little bit of finagling though. The Greens don’t necessarily taste bad, but they don’t taste good either. I purchased the berry flavour with a coupon and my friend’s discount.
On Monday, I mixed 1 tsp in with the whole bottle (250mL maybe?) of apple juice we get at work for free. Ugh. WAY too sweet. I think this berry flavour must be pre-sweetened.
On Tuesday I skipped the apple juice and opted for a mini bottle of water instead, reasoning that the super-sweetness of the day before would be toned down.
And it was… but I think I just used too much water this time and didn’t mix well enough, the Greens clumped down in the bottom and it just sort of tasted blah. The texture kind of put me off as well.
So today, Wednesday I decided to use just a small amount of apple juice with maybe 2 tsp of Greens. I shook it up in a small bottle, plugged my nose and downed it like a shot. I think this may be the winning combination.
I think my earlier issues stemmed from the over-sweetness, weird texture and the sheer volume of liquid I had to consume. I think I’d much rather just bite the bullet and get it over with, so the shot method seems to be best. Plus I follow it up with a coffee chaser 😉
As for results… well the jury is still out on that one. Right now, this instant, I feel better than I normally do. A little bit more energetic, but not much. (By energetic I mean that I am not lapsing into a coma, brain fuzz or sleep like I normally do).
You know, I haven’t even read the back of the bottle yet? The part where it describes all the wonderful things this junk will do for you? I’m not totally sure I want to. I want to see how it makes me feel without any expectations or mind tricks. I don’t want to read the promises and either imagine the results, or be totally disappointed, either.
So we’ll see how this goes. Hopefully it will make me feel great; especially now that I’ve figured out how to take the stuff!
I got my Greens+ for around $33 after a discount at GNC. You can check out the Genuine Health website for coupons for their products, sometimes they have them after you answer a questionnaire. This isn’t a paid post, but if someone would like to send me more Greens+ products to try I would love it! LOL So damned expensive…
