Diet smoothies are the fastest growing trend in weight loss. Diet smoothies are very effective when they are used as meal replacements. This model was pioneered by the slim fast diet that really gained traction starting in 1987. The major drawback with the slim fast diet was the lack of essential nutrients apart of a balanced and healthy diet.
Now, there are new diet smoothies that offer all the vitamins and nutrients one needs throughout their day. These smoothies are packed with vitamins and minerals that not only act as a catalyst for weight loss, but can replace fruits and vegetables.
There is a common misconception about weight loss and eating healthy having to do with fruit. People often think that if they are eating fruit or drinking orange juice or something similar that they are being good and sticking to a diet with the intention of losing weight. THIS IS WRONG. Fructose, the sugar in fruit, is a simple monosaccharide and contributes to weight retention. It also contributes heavily to lower belly fat that is very difficult to lose. If you eliminate fruit and replace it with a diet smoothie, you will be on your way to weight loss in no time.
