“I had been looking for a good way to streamline my breakfast due to my hectic schedule, and I decided that Jennifer’s 14-day Smoothie Challenge was a great way to explore my options. Jen sent out frequent emails helping all of us with choosing the right ingredients, making great tasting smoothies, and even what to look for in a quality blender. Even though the 14-day challenge has ended, I still make smoothies for me and my wife in the morning to help us get some much needed nutrients into our bodies as early as possible.

I highly recommend this challenge to anyone looking to change up their eating routine, and anyone trying to figure out a healthy and easy way to get more fruits and vegetables into their diet.”

“Jennifer’s 14-day smoothie challenge was a wonderful experience. She was with us every step of the way – providing us with great recipes, motivational ideas, great tips for shopping, and keeping our vegetables and fruits fresh. 
We were always able to ask her questions and she was prompt and effective in answering them. 
I have to admit, with my busy schedule I didn’t think I’d be able to keep up, but I did! All the great ideas provided made it easy to put these smoothies together. 
I had great energy throughout the day and knowing that I was putting good things in my body made me happy. 
It increased my energy, eliminated my bloating and gas issues and even improved my bowel movements (and we all know how great good bowel movements can make us feel).
I can’t see myself not having a smoothie everyday, especially knowing how good it makes me feel. Altogether it was a great experience that I will now make a part of my daily routine.”

Well, where to start… First i would like to thank Jennifer DiGregorio for motivating all of us through this 14 day journey.

In these 14 days I have had my smoothie every morning and it has changed my mood in general. I had let myself go due to health issues and I was feeling very down. I have felt a lot more energy since starting this challenge. I had a hard time eating during the day and the smoothie made sure I got all the nutrients my body needed.

I know it is not easy changing your lifestyle to a healthy one, but I can assure you even the smallest change can change the whole you. I am very proud of myself for taking on this challenge and not giving up so fast.

Thank you so much Jen for helping me get through these 14 days, for answering my questions and hearing me out.

“Truly blessed and thankful to have found a such a great and knowledgeable lifestyle and nutrition coach. Your support and encouragement are priceless and sincerely appreciated. I found the Lifestyle Change Program to be very doable and easy to incorporate into my daily lifestyle. With such a wonderful support team at Healthletica achieving all my nutrition and fitness goals will be very easy.”

Thank you Jennifer! This challenge was the best decision I have made for myself. Thanks to you and your support I now have the tools to make healthy choices. This is only the beginning and I can’t wait to see continued results in the coming months!

“Jennifer, I want to thank you for all the help. I have met the 30-day (Lifestyle Change Program) challenge and am so happy I went for it!

When I found Healthletica it was my goal to gain back strength and flexibility. X-fit plus yoga really appealed to me, and both are great. Little did I know that there is so much more to Healthletica.

Soon after joining, you sent out an email for the 14-day smoothie challenge and I jumped on-board. The smoothies have a balance in nutrition that give me energy and keep me full through to lunch. I also really like the community that comes with this; it is so helpful to be part of a group who are all working to improve health, and having fun with it!

After the challenge, I wanted to learn about the Lifestyle Change Program. The LCP and your coaching have given me the next level of support to get the unhealthy food off my plate, and add the supplements my body needs to get healthy. I am going to stick with this!

Having finished the first 30 days, I have improved my sleep, I am improving my yoga, I have more energy and I have shed weight that before the LCP, stubbornly would not go despite added exercise and calorie reduction.

The goal with LCP is to get healthy – not a number on the scale, and I really find this has made this journey one that I will be able to sustain. It is a lifestyle change, not a diet and I want to thank you, and Rosie, and the team at Healthletica for offering not only great yoga classes, but also nutrition and health support that I needed.”

“What a great way to start feeling better.

At first I was hesitant when I saw the post last year for a previous challenge…thought to myself that I wouldn’t enjoy it. But then I saw a post again in March and said – ‘what do I have to lose?’

What an awesome journey it has been. I don’t feel complete without my morning smoothies now!

I feel more energized – and best of all my skin has cleared up so much that I’m amazed when I look at myself in the mirror.

Switching through protein powders a few days prior to the start of the challenge was a bit of a challenge itself. With Jennifer’s guidance and expertise her protein powder was truthfully the best one. It took my husband all but 3 seconds of just smelling the vanilla PurePaleo protein to agree to make the switch!

I feel lighter – down 1.5 pounds.

I will miss reading the daily emails that continued to inspire me and try new things.

Although I am still stuck on a berry smoothie most mornings I feel that Jennifer has provided me the guidance and tips to continue on this journey for years to come.

I want to thank you for your willingness to share your knowledge along the way.”

– Laura D.

“I always look forward to my morning smoothie. I like to prep everything a day or two in advance. This is my 2nd round at the challenge.

My weight last month was stagnant at 202 lbs. I finally broke that plateau point everyone seems to hit. This morning my scale reading was 195lbs.

I’m feeling really good about my morning ritual. A smoothie a day! Thanks again to my cousin Rosie to push me to make a change. Jennifer, you are so knowledgeable, keep up the awesome work and thanks for sharing!”

– Claudio D.

“I just finished the smoothie challenge recently with Jennifer and she really got me starting some good habits on the regular. I still wake up most mornings craving my nutritious drink. I even got my boyfriend wanting them too!! Jennifer really helped trouble shoot almost every problem you could run into with smoothie making. The live group also was a motivational touch and I enjoy still being a part of this group! I recommend this challenge to anyone who is still on the fence about making an overall lifestyle change. Its not expensive, time consuming or really much of a drastic change. But it does wonders! Its a commitment to dessert in a cup everyday! How can you say no to that??? Love you Jen, thank you for the inspiration, support, and caring attitude towards improving my well being!”

– Natalie C.

“There really was/is no downside to this challenge.  We all feel better, let alone look better.  We are forever indebted to you for changing our lives and our attitudes.  Who says you can’t teach an old dog a new trick.  Let your Dad and I stand as your witnesses that we can change if we really want to.

One of the best reasons for me to tell people to listen to you is this: The change is immediate.  Within the first few days you already feel and see a difference in yourself.  Of course, your personal guidance and attention is the very best.  We all look forward to Smoothie Sunday which is now a staple in Casa DiGregorio.  This is all your doing and that is because all you do is CARE!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!”

“Today is the last day of the smoothie challenge, and I feel like a new person. I’ve had more energy and feel a lot better since dealing with my medical issues. My skin has started to look more radiant and I love it. I’m very bad at eating fruits and vegetables in my diet and this has been a great way to get the nutrients I need. The challenge was not hard at all…very easy, just throw it in and blend. I will be continuing the smoothies in my everyday life. Thank you so much Jennifer.”

“Jennifer’s 14 day smoothie challenge… is awesome and a great kickstart to good health. The key is in the prep.. Jen spells it out and I had everything chopped, frozen and ready in advance. Daily emails with tips also were great. If I can do it… anyone can ! Made it so easy to follow… but I loved the delicacies of the unique cake like smoothies. Delicious! I believe I tried every flavor (including banana !)… Feeling great and ready to do it again in January. Rock Star Jen !”

– Joy B.

“My son was inspired by Jennifer and the 14 day smoothie challenge, it gave him the motivation he needed. Jen provides support and fabulous recipes for nutritious and filling smoothies and is happy to report a 10 pound weight loss having 2 smoothies a day along with a sensible meal. Thanks Jen, you rock!”

– Debbie L.

“Jennifer’s 14 day smoothie challenge was a blast. So many new ways to make smoothies and great tasting. They are fast and easy for on the go people. I learned so much and I’ve been blending for over a year Monday to Friday. Take the challenge you won’t regret it.
Have a smoothie of a day.”

– Cheryl R.

“Jennifer’s 14 day Smoothie Challenge was fun and interesting learning new ways and great tips to blend up a new great tasting smoothie’s every day and they don’t take a lot time when you are in a hurry! Join her smoothie challenge it was awesome!”

– Debbie T.

“Jennifer, thanks so much for the challenge.  Except for the Sunday when my body “demanded” eggs Florentine instead of a smoothie I made it through all the other days.   Some disasters …. too much fresh broccoli one day, and another day an overdose of fresh ginger!

After the challenge I thought I would go back to juicing but no will stick to smoothies.

The challenge kept me on track of healthy eating especially remembering to add the protein powder.  I started each morning with water and lemon (as I have done for years) and an hour or so later had my smoothie based on your formula.   I found that I didn’t ever get hungry or have any cravings and usually only had one solid food meal around 5 for dinner.  I didn’t lose weight but feel good.  (Much better than I certainly did in November.)”

Note: Although Carol’s scale did not show any changes in her weight, she did report an improvement in how her pants fit her (around the waist) after the two weeks. This is an indication of body composition changes – increased lean muscle mass and decreased fat mass.

“Nutritionally dense and nutritionally sound!

I am a diabetic and live by a very controlled diet – every meal must be tailored to my current blood sugar level.

My first meal of the day is most important and creating a proper meal in only 5 minutes has made life easier for me.

Managing diabetes is a science and the science behind Jennifer’s smoothie formula is sensible. It allows me to better control my blood sugar levels throughout the day while indulging in something that tastes like dessert. To top it off, I get all the nutrition benefits that come from these deliciously fit smoothies.

This is a bonus for a diabetic!

I would encourage anyone thinking about a healthier diet and/or better diabetic control to consider this 14-day smoothie challenge.

Jennifer, you have been a great coach and mentor – and partner in health.

Thank you to all my deliciously fit group and all your amazing tips, personal twists and magnificent photos. You all have made this journey so exciting for me.

Your health matters, so continue to invest in the things that make you feel good – I’ll be right beside all of you.”

– Rosie Posca – Certified Exercise Physiologist, BA in Kinesiology & Health Science, Dec 2017

“The smoothie challenge and my Healthletica membership are setting me on a much better track! I have found the smoothie challenge, and the coaching from Jennifer has added a really valuable start to my day. I love the simple recipe that allows me to make an endless list of smoothies — I never get bored and I have the energy I need to get through a busy morning and a workout!

Jennifer, this challenge was just what I needed to set my intentions into action! The balance in the recipe between veggies, fruit, protein and fat (the good stuff!) makes a delicious, filling and fun breakfast. I love doing the challenge with a team and so also want to thank everyone for inspiring new ideas. One other huge benefit for me is that the smoothies are perfect to set me up for a great workout. I have the energy I need and have been feeling great. THANK YOU!”

– Rosemary W.

“I joined an exceptional group of smoothie adventures with replacing at least one meal with a delicious tasting smoothie…had to leave an excellent review! This group and Jen kept the challenge motivated. Still taking on the challenge too…Looking forward to February with new experiences and great tips Thanks to all.”

– Melissa Carney, Jan 2018

“Absolutely loved the smoothie challenge. I feel fantastic – eating better, sleeping better, all-around just feeling so much better – thanks Jenn!”

– Kelly C.

 

“Jennifer, thank you for this journey.  You have given me a new outlook, I am feeling better inside and out. With more energy, I am one step closer to achieving better health for myself and my family.  As it turns out, one of my son’s like these smoothie’s as much as I do.

I have to say, I truly will miss your emails and new smoothie recipes. I look forward to meeting you in person once I start my Yoga.”
