Green Smoothies for Weight Loss

The ‘magic’ in Green Smoothies

The fact

You cannot only depend on green smoothies for weight loss, though they will definitely help you lose weight. Combining the smoothies with a long-term change in diet, ‘clean eating’ and total lifestyle change will offer long-term desired results.

Benefits - “The Big Five

1. Provide all the nutrients

Green smoothies will give you most, if not all the nutrients required by your body (vitamins, minerals, healthy carbohydrates, fiber and low fat whole food). All these helps you to lose the extra pounds naturally, safely and successfully without the need of dieting. Smoothies are a quick and the right way to take your fruits and vegetables without actually tasting them. The fruit taste overshadows the taste of vegetables, so you end up consuming a whole range of assorted vegetables (cucumber, spinach, kales, carrots, broccoli, tomatoes and any other vegetables) even though you only taste the fruits in the blend (pineapple, watermelon, peach, mangoes and berries)

Consideration. Always vary your green leafy vegetables, do not do all your smoothies on one type of greens but try as many as possible.

2. Improves your metabolism

Drinking a green smoothie daily improves your metabolism…. Metabolism is the process by which your body converts what you eat and drink into energy. It is important to note that you will gain weight when you eat more calories than you burn or burn fewer calories than you eat. It is therefore important to create an energy shortfall in order to lose the pounds. This can be achieved by eating fewer calories or increasing the number of calories you burn through physical activity or you can combine both for better results.

3. Keeps you full: Help reduce cravings

The extra fiber in a green smoothie does wonders in suppressing your huge appetite, it help to avoid snacking all the time. Taking a green smoothie before a meal make you feel full, therefore helping you in portion control. Green smoothies help reduce cravings for junk foods, unhealthy sugars and fats as well as salt. With time, after a few days/weeks of drinking smoothies, you will start craving healthier foods such as fruits and vegetables

4. Easy to make: Easy to carry

Green smoothies are the ‘in-thing’ for a modern lifestyle. The preparation is quick and can be tailored to one’s own taste and like. You can choose to have a unique combination. Omitting what you don’t like and substituting it with what you like and the benefits will still be the same. Just choose your preferred fruits and vegetables, put them in a blender and drink the healthy mixture. You can chill your smoothie and go sipping it almost anywhere you go to keep you refreshed.

5. Aids in digestion and keeping “it soft”

Green smoothies contains lots of enzymes that aid in digestion and at the same time the insoluble fibers in the vegetables and fruits used to make these smoothies help improve bowel movement and overall cleansing colon and the bowel at large. Most ingredients in the green smoothie will help especially if you suffer from constipation, due to the green smoothie being fiber-rich it will help you with the bowel movement. Try adding Aloe vera in one of the smoothies and see how it aids your digestive system into action thus keeping ‘it soft’.

Besides all of these benefits you will sleep better which is also very important when it comes to weight loss.
