5 Weight Loss Smoothies for Breakfast

It’s not just about weight but a healthy lifestyle as well that you should take care of. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day as experts believe that a healthy breakfast will give your metabolism a good boost for the day and tells your body to start burning fat.

We see so many people skipping their breakfast totally or eating unhealthy food in breakfast. So forget your old eating habits and bring a change by starting with healthy breakfast smoothie which is the best and most beneficial way to lead a healthy life. It will take only 3-5 minutes to prepare your smoothie.

So to start with, first thing you need to do is to eliminate processed foods from your ingredients. These processed foods lack about 80% of the vitamins and minerals. Manufacturers remove the nutrients while processing them and add back only little portion of all the nutrients. Of course there may be claims about fresh foods being more pricy and it is better to use packaged and processed foods that save your time and money, but all false!!

Also update your information by adding this fact that the USDA Dietary Guidelines Committee has just raised the minimum recommended amount of fruit a day to nine servings (up from 5 servings) based on a 2000 calorie diet.

Smoothies with fresh ingredients make you feel full for longer and you can avoid those early morning cravings that you get after eating pre-packaged food. And then smoothies are always tastier and require little time to be prepared. By bringing them to your daily schedule you can avoid several health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure and of course obesity.

Here are some amazing recipes of weight loss smoothies that give about 3 servings of fruit for breakfast:
