Ask The Chef: Smoothies for Weight Loss

Posted by Support Boomity on Mar 17, 2013 11:30:52 PM

Q: Will superfood smoothies help me lose weight?

-Rebecca F.

A: When looking at weight loss, many leading nutritionists suggest putting the “crowding out†theory to work - a dietary tool based on the idea that the more good food we eat, the less inclined we are to overdo it with the bad. Arming ourselves with this tool works for a couple reasons -first, by filling our stomach with nutritious high-fiber foods like fruits and superfoods, we leave less room for (literally “crowd outâ€) the cookie plate attacks and brownie binges. Second, by filling our body with quality nutrients, we can chemically trigger our system to feel satisfied which results in diminished cravings. The result is being able to easily pass on the plate piled with dietary disaster saying “No thanks, I'm good†… and really mean it this time.

One easy way to deliciously crowd out the bad foods is enjoying a daily high fiber, low calorie smoothie. Instead of worrying about every meal, aim to balance out the day as a whole, using the ease of a smoothie packed with functional ingredients to your advantage. Try making a habit of enjoying your blended creations before you head off to a tempting culinary affair. Armed with a satisfied stomach, you'll be amazed at how easy it is to stay on a healthy track - and how good you feel.

Ready to try? Our Blueberry Skinny Smoothie is a delicious, low calorie winner.
