A lot of us are always on the lookout for effective weight loss solutions and even more are going to be looking right after the holidays are past.
For those looking, there are any number of diets both online and in print. Some are really good while others can actually be bad for your health.
One good way to tell the difference between the two is whether or not the diet includes foods that are both healthy and nutritious. If it does, your weight loss will probably be slower but will be lasting. If not, then generally speaking, that diet relies on “tricking” your body into losing weight quickly and weight lost quickly is weight that is also regained.
Break out of this diet trap by choosing a diet that includes healthy and nutritious foods and stick with it. Yes, it will probably take longer but you won’t be risking your health and the results will stick around.
Adding weight loss smoothies like the one below will help a lot. This is a recipe that takes some work but the payoff is well worth the effort.
In your favorite blender mix:
- 1/2 a Cantaloupe
- 1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1 tomato (sliced)
- Juice from 2 Oranges
- 1 Tbsp. Chia seed
This mix is low calorie, satisfying, and offers a huge blast of vitamin C to ward off winter colds.
