MEAL REPLACEMENT SMOOTHIES
Our bodies crave various elements such as proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals every day. In order to maintain a healthy body we need to consume enough of these elements with food every single day. When it comes to losing weight, due to a common stereotype we believe that consuming less food will lead to a success and start skipping meals or chose less nutritious food. This approach is completely wrong and will always lead to gaining lost pounds back.
MEAL REPLACEMENT SMOOTHIES FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Because of being quick to prepare, easy to digest and packed with so many valuable ingredients in one glass, leafy greens, fruits and source of protein in a blended smoothie is a perfect option for balanced meal replacement. Whether it’s breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack or post workout boost – these meals can be easily swapped for a smoothie, which is super easy to prepare and suit everyone’s needs. You just need to know how to balance right ingredients in order to create balanced meal replacement smoothies for weight loss, which I will show you below.
REPLACING YOUR MEAL WITH A SMOOTHIE:
For me a smoothie is not just a healthy snack or post workout fuel, it’s also a regular meal. Sometimes I have smoothies for breakfast because I’m in a hurry. Other times because I am doing a body cleanse or need to slim down after a festive season.
SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF REPLACING A MEAL WITH A SMOOTHIE ARE:
- When using the right ingredients it will help to lose weight
- It’s super easy and quick to prepare
- It’s easy for your body to digest, thus you’ll feel less bloating
- They are packed with vitamins and minerals and will help you to feel more energized
The most important thing when blending meal replacement smoothies is to include healthy proteins. This will help you feeling full and provide the energy required until your next meal.
Proteins are very important for a good health as they participate in nearly every single process in our bodies, such as building new cells and hormonal balance. When it comes to losing weight, protein is our best friend, as it helps to feel full and controls blood sugar levels which contribute in minimizing unhealthy snacking.
