Smoothies are super convenient on rapid weight loss programs.
Oh! and by the way, I think smoothies should definitely be one of your go-to meals when you aren’t sure what to have.
However, you either have to make your own or be very specific with grabbing commercially available ones.
So why can’t you have commercially made smoothies?
Commercially and conveniently available smoothies are overloaded with regular sugar! Yes they have so much sugar it's shocking and unbelievable.
Smoothies today, are branded as “healthy” which most are not.
If you trust in your local health food restaurant, then tell them you want it low-carb and high-protein. But tell them the protein must be low-carb as well. One of our main recommendations is that you know where to shop and which restaurants to go to in advance.
So here's how to make your own smoothie which is great on a rapid weight loss program.
Here is a quick breakdown on our recommendations on how to make high-protein, low-carb smoothies which can be counted as a meal.
Use 1 tall glass of water or unsweetened almond milk.
Use one serving of the accepted fruits on the program
Add lots of leafy greens
One scoop of low-carb protein powder, either whey or vegan
Optional natural sweetener like monkfruit, stevia or erythritol
Optional, 1 tbsp of unsweetened nut butter (a little higher calories) or 1 tbsp of chia seeds, or 1 tbsp of almonds.
In other words, choose your healthy fats.
Also keep in mind, that Omega-3 healthy fats are fantastic, but you can overdo them on the SOZA Weight Loss program. So, keep healthy fats in moderation.
Personally, I love the half avocado.
What about a very low-calorie smoothie?
For a very low-calorie smoothie, make a green juice. We understand that you aren’t always able to get your vegetable serving and most likely you never have enough. A green smoothie would be a great way to increase that intake.
You can literally have green smoothies anytime you want.
Smoothies are very convenient and easy to make
Make a smoothie one of your go-to meals
Avoid commercially available smoothies
