A Smoothie Diet is a diet one follows to lose weight. In this diet the goal is to replace one or two meals with smoothies which are full of beneficial ingredients. A smoothie diet is NOT an all liquid diet. You still may have your meals as it is, but the aim is to replace one or two of these meals with a smoothie.
One can incorporate a smoothie diet regime easily with their day to day meal plans. The only difference will be replacing one of the meals with nutrient filled smoothie.
One of the simplest and effective most meals plan to follow is to first note down your eating habits. See what you eat and which meal is contributing to your major calorie intake. After doing so, replace that meal with a smoothie.
For example you might notice that what you eat at dinner, be it a pizza or spaghetti, contributes the most calorie that you intake. Aim to replace your dinner food with a healthy smoothie instead. By doing so you are cutting on your calorie intake and this will in effect help you lose weight. If you notice that breakfast or lunch are meals that contribute most towards your calorie intake, then try to replace these with a smoothie. Never try to replace all your meals with a smoothie because that is not healthy at all. One to two meals replaced with smoothie are ideal as well as healthy.
