How Coconut Milk Speeds slimming?

 

Coconut Milk Smoothies Boostes Metabolism

Coconut milk is a rich source of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs) – a type of healthy fat that stimulates the thyroid to produce more of a key fat-burning hormone (thyroxine). The payoff: research found that consuming a MCFA enriched meal boosted subjects' metabolism.

 

Coconut Milk Smoothies Balances Blood Sugar

The MCFAs in coconut milk slow the release of sugar into the bloodstream, helping to prevent blood sugar fluctuations that sap energy and mood.

 

Coconut Milk Smoothies Dials Down Appetite

Enjoying a coconut milk smoothie can keep you feel full and satisfied reducing cravings because the MCFAs in the sip trigger the release of hunger suppressing hormones. Drink MCFA enriched and eat less calories.

 

Smoothies Packed with Fatty Acids to Rev Energy, Fat Buring and More

Why Diet Smoothies can help you lose weight?

On a smoothie diet, you will enjoy the fruity drinks again and again you can even pick just one favorite and stick with it. Turns out, the reputation is a weapon against cheating. Studies show that people who eat the same meal for at least one meal a day lose more weight then those who have more variety. Having a lot of food choices stimulates the urge to eat more. When you stick with the same thing more often for example, the same breakfast and lunch every day you take away guesswork and temptations. This is one reason why folks on shake style diets typically lose so much weight! A smoothie Diet is a great way to control calories in an easy convenient way. Two smoothies and a meal is an effective way to lose weight. Not only is it an easy way to plan your diet but it is also a nutritious diet that includes high fiber foods. It is designed to control hunger better and provide a better range of nutrients than a typical shake plan. Alternate smoothie shakes along with a healthy meal and you have a diet plan that can help you reach your weight loss goals. Another reason diet smoothies works is because most fruits and vegatables are high in fiber and fiber fills you up, and keeps you satisfied reducing those junk food cravings that happen throughout the day.

Green Detox Diet Smoothie

Now that summer is almost here, it’s time to start getting back on track. This means getting back eating real foods and working out – fruits, vegetables and lots of exercise. In other words, it’s time to begin a detox ridding your body of all those toxins. There is always the same nagging question, though, “How to get started? 

This year, I discovered the best way to control my urge to eat everything at once and return to a healthy diet: a “Detox blaster.” It helps cleanse your body of sugar and it is so refreshing at the same time. It is great first thing in the morning after a workouts for breakfast or lunch.

Detox Blast

  • ½ Cucumber
  • ½ Cup Pineapple
  • 1 Apple cored and cut
  • ½ lemon juiced
  • Large handful of spinach
  • ½ Avocado
  • Handful of raw almonds
  • 3 – 4 ice cubes
  • Water to line

Add all ingredients in the Smothie Blender – blend and enjoy. Please feel free take creative liberties.

Smoothie Blender Options:

Try the Nutribullet blender it has a powerful motor. Blends anything, (nuts, seeds, fruit with skin) puts it into an amazingly smooth consistancy. Definitely a meal replacement for a healthy intake of fruits and vegetables.

Smoothie tips use coconut water and almond milk as well as pure fruit juice it gives a great flavor when using kale, spinach and broccoli with the fruits.
