How to Lose Weight with Smoothies...

Here are 3 different smoothie ingredients that you can easily add to your smoothies to lose weight.

#1 Protein - A good quality protein powder in your smoothies is a good way to satisfy your hunger. When it comes to shopping for a high quality protein powder... look for a protein as close to nature as possible. Either it be a good hemp protein powder, egg whites, rice protein powder, cottage cheese, cooked beans, raw sunflower seeds, etc.

#2 Use Water - Use water instead of fruit juice or milk as the liquid in your smoothie recipes. This can save you up to 250 calories easily. Plus, it's cheaper!

Just don't add too much water. You can't take the extra water out, but you can always add more water if you need too.

#3 Greens - Adding greens to your smoothies can be a perfect way to reduce your cravings and clean out the digestive system.

Along with smoothies... Eating at least a pound of raw veggies a day helps assist the body to shed those extra pounds. This amount isn't very much when measuring a cucumber or a carrot. This will help fill you up with good nutrition and fiber.

I hope these tips help you out!

Happy Blending!

Terri's Comments: Thanks so much for sharing DaNae. We use smoothies all the time at our place. I even pack a little extra nutrition by putting powdered nutrients in them, including some greens.

Good Suggestion

I like it! There are many different things that people can do to lose weight. A big thing is for that person to stick to it long enough to let it work properly in the body.

Cinnamon is a great option! Plus, it is just pure delicious. Thanks for pointing it out!

Smoothies for weight loss

Great article DaNae.

Something else that I like to add to smoothies is Cinnamon and Ginger.

Apparently Cinnamon mimics the properties of Insulin and actually manages to metabolize glucose faster, and therefore lessens the amount of sugar in one's blood.

Plus, ground cinnamon is really cheap and tastes good too!

That should be another good way to lose weight with smoothies.
