A great way to lose weight quickly is taking diet shakes. Diet shakes are highly nutritious and easily digested. Discover the key ingredients in a good diet shake.
No Dairy Products
The shake industry is awash with so-called diet shakes that are more like junk food. One such guilty ingredient are dairy products such as yoghurt and milk. If you're of a normal weight then these ingredients can be used in your shakes in moderation.
However, if you want to lose weight quickly then you need to forget about these. They simply pack too much fat and calories so leave them in the fridge when preparing your shake.
No Added Sugar Or Sweeteners
Avoid adding any sugar. Again these are just super concentrated high glycaemic index calories. All that will happen is you will get a great sugar rush then a massive sugar crash and you'll want more junk or sugar. No good diet shake should contain any sugar or sweeteners.
Fruits With Stones
These are the best for shakes because they contain a high gylcaemic index. Of course, you need to cut them in half and remove the stone first or else you might break your blender! The best ones are the juicy ones such as peaches and nectarines.
Berries are excellent for making quick weight loss shakes. They are low on calories but high in flavour. The seeds are also great in a smoothie and give you something to munch on.
Go Easy On The Juice
Orange and apple juices and others are highly concentrated extracts from real fruits. So drinking a small glass of juice is like eating 5 oranges but without getting all the nutrition.
So when you add a little juice to the fruits you first put in the blender, just add a little. You want to add something like a third to a half of the volume of the final smoothie in juice ingredients. If you find that the smoothie is too runny then add some slices of banana. Bananas are a great thickening agent for smoothies.
