Smoothies can be a great way to lose weight – if they’re done right. This means:
• No sugar
• No nut butters
• No chocolate
When made with fresh fruits and vegetables, flax seed, and other supplements, smoothies give us a huge boost of antioxidants, energy, natural fiber, and vitamins. With the right ingredients and when used as a meal replacement, smoothies can fix nutritional deficiencies and help you feel more full, but with less calories of a standard “solid” meal.
If drinking a smoothie as a meal replacement, drink plenty of water before and after to help you feel full.
