When you were growing up , it was a sinful treat to get a smoothie on a hot summer day . Who would have thought , smoothies are now the best way to stay healthy and loose weight !!
There are so many types of smoothies you can make and choose, if you stop by a smoothie bar. There are fruit smoothies , fruit and veggie smoothies , meal replacement smoothies and protein smoothies.
You do have to watch your smoothie intake if you are counting calories. Meal replacement and protein smoothies can pack in a lot of calories , when you get them from a smoothie bar.
Smoothies help with body cleansing , detox and loosing weight.
Here is my 10 Day Smoothie experience
I detox 24-48 hours before I start my smoothie challenge. I drink 2 jugs of water infused with slices of cucumber , lemon ,lime , mint leaves , grapefruit , and a light meal . Most important, I take vitamins the whole time. You don’t want to loose any nutrients the body needs. This avoids being nauseous and fatigued.
The Formula :
Breakfast : Smoothie
Lunch : Smoothie
Dinner: Light meal ( lean meat and a Veggie ) eat before 7p or 8p
Snack : Smoothie
1 hour walk or work out
I use a frozen fruit mix , fresh banana, spinach and yogurt for my smoothies . This bag was purchased at Walmart.
The Mix : Use a powerful blender that has the smoothie option .
Use the frozen fruit , purified water , banana ,spinach , or any type of fruit you like . To make your smoothie have a sweet taste , you can use dates , prunes & nectors.
Eat light meals . Here is a few I had. Vegan Tacos ( made with seasoned cauliflower & Sered Salmon on a Salad. Mix of Lima beans , corn & okra . Baked chicken & broccoli. Follow @senelebody & @soayyasnotachef on IG for meal ideas )
WORK OUT !!!
I took Kick Boxing Classes
I got a membership to Golds Gym
End result . I cleansed , had more energy, & lost 5lbs YAY!
Hope this helps, & stay tuned for the next challenge!
