The #funky5 breakfast smoothie for weight loss
Fruit and veg are good for you. No one would argue with that. But what is better for your health and losing weight?
There has been a great deal of research in recent years to support the claim that eating more fruit and veg may be able to reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and cancer, while also helping to manage your weight.
It can be a challenge to eat five portions of fruit and veg each day, even when you like vegetables. And now a new report suggests that eating 9 portions is what we need to stay healthy for longer. Most people don’t come nearly close to having enough, and I bet you’re wondering how on earth you’re going to manage that!
And, if you’ve been wanting to try a weight loss smoothie for breakfast, my #funky5 breakfast smoothie is the way to go.
The benefits of the funky5 weight loss breakfast smoothie
How was your breakfast today? Will it fuel you to your next meal? Many of my clients are so busy when they come to see me first that they tell me “I have no time for breakfast “When I introduce them to my #funky5 smoothie formula it is a game changer for them.
My #funky5 breakfast smoothie is an actioned packed smoothie that is made with my simple formula to help you develop a blood sugar balancing meal replacement shake in any flavour with enough protein, fat and fibre to keep you full and will help as p[art of a weight loss programme. Many juice shops, grocery smoothie bars and smoothie recipes are loaded with sugar, specifically fructose sugar from excess fruit. Have a go and watch how this will change your life!!
Dietary fibre also activates a few hormones helpful in weight loss (called PYY and CKK and GLP-1, since you ask). These are appetite suppressors, meaning you’ll want to naturally eat less the more veg you consume. Fibre also decreases levels of the hunger hormone ghrelin and increases another hormone called leptin, which tells your body you’re full. So, all in all, fruit and veg are the good guys.
My #funky5 weight loss smoothies have the perfect amount of veggies, protein, fats and fruit to ensure you are having a healthy, nutritious and filling meal to take with you on-the-go.
If your idea of the perfect smoothie is only fruit and some liquid … Well, that’s a sugar bomb waiting to happen and is likely to upset your blood sugar balance. Plus, if consumed too frequently, this will have you start piling on the pounds. Also, you can switch from fat burning to fat-storing machine!!
The #funky5 weight loss smoothie is designed to switch on your fat-burning hormones and keep you fuller and satisfied right up to lunch.
How can you drink that for breakfast??
That is a question I get asked a lot from family, friends and clients before they have tried a #FUNKY5 weight loss smoothie. The sight of the green of smoothies is usually enough for people to say no way I am not trying that!!
I get it, sometimes their appearance is not going to win an award anytime soon.
When clients start to try my #funky5 weight loss smoothies they are pleasantly surprised, and their typical bland beige breakfast of cereal or toast is quickly replaced at least 5 days a week with a #FUNKY5 weight loss smoothie. They are nutritionally satisfied and feel lighter and brighter and their body starts to crave the green stuff!! Who would have thought eh??

Make it easy and Meal prep
Freeze your fruit
If you want to make my #funky5 weight loss smoothies regularly, it’s a great idea to store your fruit and veg in the freezer. I find that they retain their nutritional value and flavour. They also make your weight loss smoothie have some chill, so no need to add ice. I freeze bananas that are turning brown (peel and store in a container in the freezer) You can store your veggies like chopped cucumber, celery and spinach in sandwich bags and throw into your blender whenever you need them. I buy frozen fruit and use them in my #funky5 weight loss smoothie.
Super Boost Your #funky5 weight loss Smoothie
Once you’ve mastered the basics, try adding different super boosts to your basic recipe. Add a spoonful of cocoa powder, maca, cinnamon, spirulina before blending, or give your smoothie some texture with a sprinkle of flaxseeds, toasted chopped nuts or whole oats. Not only will it taste great, but it will also keep you fuller for longer too.
