Smoothies For Weight Loss
At some point in our lives we find ourselves struggling with our weight.
It happened to me when I was approaching my 30’s, and years of junk food and overworking have started to have a serious effect.
I gained quickly but it took much longer to lose.
True, there is no quick fix or magic pill that can make someone’s fat disappear, but anything that can ease and quicken your journey - is certainly worth looking into.
With smoothies, there are many well documented examples of the power of smoothies to help with weight loss. Many people have lost as much as 20 pounds in just 2-3 weeks of incorporating smoothies in their lives!
Smoothies can be your complete and balanced meal, giving you all the nutrients you need without adding in empty calories.
Using the appropriate smoothie recipes, you feel full and your hunger pangs are suppressed, which means you can avoid succumbing to unhealthy foods that create excess fat.

Smoothies For a Healthier Lifestyle
Many people realize at some point in their lives how important it is to eat healthy and give the body all the nutrients it needs.
This realization usually comes when you notice you gain more and more weight, or you remember yourself having more energy and being much less tired.
But eating healthy is a difficult goal to accomplish: you need to frequently buy fresh groceries then spend hours preparing and cooking. Often, the result is food that’s too healthy to be delicious - not everyone is a big fan of vegetables!
Turns out there is actually a way to prepare healthy food that’s:
- Quick and easy make
- Completely natural
- Delicious, made exactly to your taste
I’m referring to smoothies of course. They are the fastest yet tastiest way to get all healthy vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants that our modern daily nutrition is lacking.
The Tools You Need To Prepare Smoothies
Apart from information, recipes, how-to guides and cheat sheets, we’ve also hand-picked for you the best tools and kitchen appliances you need in order to make smoothies a key part of living a healthier lifestyle.
How can you find the best blender for your needs?
Buying the wrong blender might result in the following:
- Breaks down / burns quickly - low end models are not built for daily use
- You waste too much time on cleaning the blender
- Getting cut while cleaning around the blades
- Plastic particles and gunk mixed with the smoothie
- Smoothies do not have a delicious smooth texture, lots of chewy vegetable pieces
- Limited functionality - cannot handle ice and the more dense vegetables/fruits
All the above are the unfortunate features of blenders of the lower levels.
That’s we felt it was super important to recommend the blenders we know well and can safely recommend.
Our team members are all smoothie enthusiasts, each with his/her own choice of a blender brand (mainly: Blendtec, Vitamix, Ninja and Nutribullet)
These range from mid-priced to high end blenders. I would strongly recommend against buying the cheapest ones, unless you want to deal with the above problems.
So here are the most recommended blenders, that either myself or our community members have extensively used and can safely recommend:
