Losing weight can be a challenge, especially when it comes to making changes to your diet. It has been said that weight loss is 80% what you eat, and 20% exercise. Weight loss smoothies are a fantastic meal replacement for many reasons. The ones on this list happen to be low in calories, packed with nutritious goods, and full of delicious flavor! You won’t even realize that you are eating healthy!
Before we jump into the list of weight loss smoothie recipes I have a few tips that I would like to share! These tips are what have worked for me when I was looking to lose a few pounds prior to heading to South Beach, Miami for vacation last year. Disclaimer: I am not an expert, just sharing what has worked for me! You should consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns. 🙂
Tip #1 – Add a scoop of protein powder to your smoothie before blending everything together. Protein can assist with curbing your hunger, by giving you that “full” feeling imitating the effects of eating a regular meal.
Tip #2 – Avoid adding sugar to these weight loss smoothies, as the fruit provides a good amount of natural sugar. Additional sugars can add extra unwanted calories.
Tip #3 – Try to limit meal replacement to only one meal a day. I found that this helped me to stick to my short term weight loss goals.
