Why Use Meal Replacement Smoothies For Weight Loss?
If you’re looking to lose weight, one of the most important things you can do is to reduce your daily calorie intake. While important, eating a healthy diet full of nutritious foods isn’t enough; you need to reduce the number of calories you take. This can be achieved by either reducing the number of calories you consume at each meal or increasing your daily activity levels. Smoothies are a convenient and delicious way to reduce your calorie intake.
One study found that replacing one meal each day with a meal replacement smoothie resulted in an average reduction in daily calories of 405 calories. That’s an excellent start when you’re trying to lose weight. If you drink a smoothie for every meal, you decrease your total daily calorie intake by a massive amount. This sudden drop in calories can be extremely effective for weight loss. However, it should be noted that drinking smoothies instead of three meals daily isn’t a long-term solution to weight loss.
