Banana and Ginger Smoothie for Weight Loss

With obesity becoming such a huge problem for the youth and adults all over the world, weight loss supplements have become one of the most expensive luxuries. But why using chemical compounds when you can always go the natural way? Every nutritionist and weight loss expert will tell you that the natural way for losing weight is better since you are not only losing weight but promoting a healthy lifestyle that will help prevent obesity in the future.

 

The two main ingredients in this smoothie help you lose weight on their own, and when combined, they create a powerful beverage. Bananas, for example, contain healthy nutrients like fibre, natural sugar and antioxidants that keep you full and nourished through the day, helping you avoid cravings for sugar. At the same time, bananas provide energy for your body, promote good digestion and balance your blood sugar level. Ginger, on the other hand, increases your metabolic rate, kicking your metabolism to overdrive to burn more fat.

 

Ingredients:

 

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup of blueberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed
  • ½ cup spinach
  • ice cubes

 

Instructions:

 

Blend all the ingredients and drink the smoothie in the morning on an empty stomach as a breakfast alternative. You will notice the initial results after one week of usage. Expect to lose two to four pounds in a week, and you can continue until you achieve your desired goal or healthy weight. Never lose too much weight, as you will do more harm than good.
