As you would probably guess, the weight loss industry is a multibillion dollar industry that relies on people knowing absolutely nothing about what is in their own kitchen cabinets. The weight loss industry doesn’t want you to know about exercise or natural weightless diets simply because they can’t profit. Instead they try to convince people they should buy their overpriced, processed foods and shake mixes. Walking into a nutritional store or searching the internet results in a overwhelming wave of special diets and products that offer miraculous results, however, few really believe in them.
However, instead of walking down the supplement aisle, try walking down the organic food aisle. By consuming the right mix of natural foods on a daily basis (mixed with regular exercise) will provide noticeable results while providing natural nourishment, satiation, energy and antioxidants.
The following smoothie recipe will provide you an example of a homemade smoothie that uses natural ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen.
One of the most important elements for a good weight loss shake, or other food, is that it makes you feel satiated (or full). This will ensure you don’t go diving into the cupboards for snacks in between meals (one of the major commonalities of overweight people is that they are constantly putting snack foods into their mouths).
Bananas and Pineapple
Bananas are a great food for this! Known as natures energy bar, they will provide you with energy needed to exercise. In order to not loose muscular strength and energy during your workout, you will also need to add a diuretic laxative to your diet (like pineapple). A laxative will help your body expel fats through urine excretion and will help rid your organism of accumulated toxins.
Tree of Life Organic Golden Linseed 500g
Another ingredient you should not overlook when making your smoothies are Linseeds. These too are affective at providing a satiated feeling and they help destroy fat. Do not heat them as this will destroy their properties, instead soak them in water or juice overnight before grinding (you can use a coffee grinder or food processor to grind them before adding to your smoothies).
We are ever becoming more aware of the health benefits of Ginger. It’s ability to stabilize the nervous system, accelerate metabolism and reduce feelings of hunger, permits it to burn more fat than your body consumes while eating smaller portions and still feeling satisfied. It also is an effective anti-inflammatory agent. So, make sure to also add ginger to your smoothies.
Of course, regular exercise is essential for weight loss because muscle tone burns fat around the clock. Muscle tone will also make your posture better and improve symptoms of early osteoporosis. Also, remember that eating between meals is a major contributor to gaining weight. However, if you must snack, eat an apple. This fruit is low in calories, high in vitamin C for energy and anti-oxidative benefits. It will also make you feel full and satisfied.
