Healthy Smoothie Recipes - Ideal Weight Loss Recipes

By Susan Field

This article is about healthy smoothies and their benefits to your health and effectiveness for weight-loss. The natural whole foods in these drinks will improve your digestion and accelerate your fat loss.

These natural whole foods contain many special vitamins and minerals that can benefit your entire body.

Making a smoothie from fruits and vegetables breaks down the plant cells and releases the plant energy that is beneficial to health and makes them accessible to the digestion.

Make sure to avoid sugary tropical fruits in your smoothies for weight loss, avoid banana, pineapple and mango.

This is a great way to enjoy healthy smoothies that are low on sugar. Including green vegetables and whole fruits makes sure that adequate quantities of beneficial soluble and insoluble fibre prevent the rapid uptake of fructose sugar from the fruit. Lowering your body's production of insulin means it is difficult for your body to make fat.

Another important tip for making a smoothie for weight loss is to make sure the proportion of vegetables to fruits is in an advantageous range.

An ideal ratio is 80 percent green vegetables to 20 percent fruit.

Keeping the fruit content low will mean that you can enjoy fuller flavours and get the maximum benefit from organic green vegetables in your diet.

TIP: Rather than having a smoothie between meals, opt for a green smoothie as a meal replacement. Eating a green smoothie on an empty stomach will be beneficial because the digestion will be primed and ready to absorb all the powerful plant based nutrients.

Following the meal replacement method is a clever way to incorporate more natural whole foods into your daily diet. Following a liquid diet plan that is designed for weight loss will still allow you to eat a healthy evening meal.

For optimum results and consistent weight loss opt for 2 meal replacements on most days.

In order to prevent hunger between meals it is however important to ad foods that contain beneficial fats or sources of protein. Doing this helps you feel full for longer.

I would always recommend buying organic fruit and vegetables where possible as they contain much higher quantities of beneficial ingredients for health and weight loss.

At 'the liquid diet plan' website we have prepared a range of meal replacement recipe ideas that you can use free of charge to help you lose excess weight steadily and consistently whilst improving your overall health and well being.
