I don't seem to be able to lose any weight and wonder if this is sabotaging my efforts? Thanks to anyone with insight.

I have been using a small single serving type blender (like a Magic Bullet) to make my fruit smoothies. I just can't picture adding a spinach leaf in? Do you all use fresh leaves or frozen ones?
Is fiber, fiber? Blended or not?

Whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes. No added fat, no avacados, no nuts. Keep your food as unprocessed as possible. Smoothies were never a part of his dietary recommendations. It was always his advice that the more we process a food, the more likely it is to be overconsumed and add weight. The confusion does not come from Dr. McDougall or Jeff Novick. The confusion comes from people who try to follow advice from any number of different sources and then become annoyed that Dr. McDougall's advice (which has not changed in 20 or more years) conflicts with the dietary model they have constructed for themselves by relying on all kinds of information they have picked and chosen from all over the internet.
