Eat Smoothies to Help Burn Fat

Smoothies are a great choice for healthy, energizing snacks during the day. Just blend smoothies at night and take them to eat during the day. They will save you money and are perfect on-the-go snacks or meals.

Forget about the 100-calorie snack packs and sugary treats for snacks. They leave you unsatisfied, under-nourished and wanting to eat even more.

Eat the wrong snacks and it could blow a hole through your fat burning and weight loss goals. Empty calories leave you, well, empty and looking for your next meal too soon.

3 Foods to Eat to Burn More Belly Fat

You could be gaining weight because of your snacks between meals. It doesn't have to be that way.

What you eat for snacks can mean the difference between out-of-control weight gain or weight loss management/fat loss.

The American Dietetic Association also recommends healthy snacking. Snacks bridge the gap between meals and can help you eat less at regular mealtime.

Going too long between meals can cause you to load up on sugary carbohydrates to get quick energy. These types of snacks are usually high in calories, not very nutritious and cause rapid ups and downs in blood sugar levels (you will crash).

Here are 2 great smoothies to eat as snacks:


--1 frozen banana
--1/2 peeled, chopped apple
--1 cup apple juice
--1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
--Pinch of nutmeg

Blend. Great substitute for applesauce! Control the consistency by adding more or less chopped apple.


1 quarter strawberries, hulled
1 banana, broken into chunks
2 peaches
1 cup orange or peach or mango or apple juice
2 cups ice


Drinking more water during the day will also help you eat less. Aim to drink half your weight in water every day. So, if you weigh 160 pounds, drink about 80 ounces of water every day.
