Smoothies are the perfect vehicle for all the nutrients your body needs to thrive. Not only are smoothies great for weight loss but they also deliver a hefty dose of micronutrients that have a incredible array of health benefits.
A lot of people are wondering if a smoothie diet is good for weight loss. Green smoothies can be a fantastic tool to help you lose weight if prepared correctly.
So what is it with green smoothies anyways that have created such a buzz among a myriad of models, celebrities and nutritionists-to-the-stars?
Have you answered ‘yes’ to at least one of the above questions?
More studies are now showing how having an excess amount of visceral body fat (the dangerous type that surrounds your organs) can predispose you to several life-threatening conditions.
When properly prepared, green smoothies can make it easier for you to get rid of excess flab. For instance, the nutrients in green smoothies can help your body regulate its blood sugar concentration. As you probably know, the higher your blood sugar levels, the more fat your body stores.
Have you noticed how allergies and food intolerances such as celiac disease are on the rise? Blame it on our diet which is indeed sadly devoid of essential nutrients but loaded with highly processed foods. Putting our bodies in a state of constant inflammation. No wonder it’s so hard to maintain a healthy weight!
By loading up on (natural) nutrients, you’ll be strengthening your immune system and reducing inflammatory processes in your body. And since smoothies are so filling and nutritious, you’ll have less ‘space’ for junk food. This means you’ll easily and unconsciously reduce your intake of processed foods which in turn, will keep sugar cravings at bay.
What you eat (and don’t eat) has a direct impact on your skin and hair.
The essential nutrients in green smoothies will help lock moisture in your hair and skin cells, making them look hydrated and healthy. These drinks can also help calm puffy and red skin, thus delaying appearance of sagging and wrinkles.
