As a woman ages there is nothing more stubborn (or so it seems) than belly fat. Every woman, no matter who you are or what exercise you do, or what you eat, you will deal with stubborn belly fat. It’s just a fact of life. But, just because it’s a fact of life doesn’t mean we have to put up with it, right? Do you wanna know how you can lose belly fat by drinking? Well, now I know what you are thinking, how can drinking help me lose belly fat. You silly girl, you won’t be drinking margarita’s or beer, or wine. You will be drinking green smoothies, YUM!
I recently checked into a procedure called CoolSculpting. It is a procedure that freezes your fat cells, and then your body sheds those frozen fat cells over the course of 3-6 months. Now, once you shed dead or frozen fat cells, you will never get them back. That is a sweet deal, right? Well the part that stopped me from keeping my appointment I made, is that it was going to cost me more than I could part with right now. So, I turn to other alternative methods of dealing with the little bit of belly fat that I have.
I joined my good friend in a workout challenge and October 1st my my day one back on the fitness wagon. I fell off hard over the summer due to life just being busy. I was always on the go, and my food choices were less than good. Ha! Summer! So, I will be doing a program from Beachbody called Liift4. I did the workout here and there over the summer but never stuck with it. This time, I am sticking with it to see what it can do for me, my belly fat, and my life. I also am getting back into my green smoothie recipes and adding them to my daily food intake.
Before you make that face and start to gag, keep in mind that things have come a long way from when green smoothies first hit the recipe books and the internet. You shouldn’t turn your nose up so quick, because you might just find that you like them. And, when you give your body time to get used to something, before you know it your body will crave it and then before you know it, bam! Belly fat is shrinking.
Now, I don’t know if your belly fat shrinks for sure, but this article can help you understand why you need to drink green smoothies. Start your day off right, boost your metabolism, aid in digestion, fight depression, get your fruit/veg intake, and more. Burn your belly fat by ramping up your healthy intake.
Not all green smoothies are created equal. There are many ingredients that a person can put in their green smoothie recipes and every item kinda tweaks it to each person’s liking. Ingredients like frozen banana, leafy greens, natural sweeteners, almond milk, frozen spinach, ripe bananas, maca powder, spinach and kale, fresh spinach, chia seeds, coconut milk, protein powder, coconut water, apple, lemon, kiwi, almond butter, and so many more healthy food options.
Here are some goodies you can snag off Amazon to make your Green Smoothie Recipe to your liking.
