Looking for weight loss smoothies recipes? I can help! Here is a simple guide which gives you the run-down on the ingredients with fat burning potential such as Whey Protein, Matcha Green Tea Powder, Probiotic Foods, Fiber, and Low-Sugar Ingredients. Keep scrolling for 3 weight loss smoothies recipes. But first, lets dive into the benefits of each fat burning ingredient.



Whey Protein 

Whey comes from milk. It has certain amino acids that are used by our muscles to grow and thrive. Building muscle can help you burn fat faster – remember that this requires exercise as well. So exercise plus protein shakes can be beneficial. Whey also helps reduce hunger and make you feel full, which is why its great for helping with weight loss. Read more about it in the book. But, for the purpose of these smoothies, its recommended you get 100% whey protein powder, vanilla flavor.

Matcha Green Tea Powder

Matcha comes from ground tea leaves. It’s full of antioxidants including some that help burn fat. You can read more about the health benefits of Matcha in the book, which include help with diabetes, blood pressure and even bad breath!


Probiotics

Probiotics have live cultures in them, which are helpful to digestion and can help burn fat. They have been talked about and included in the 17 Day Diet already, but Dr. Mike really promotes them in the newest book as beneficial. You can get probiotics from yogurt, kefir, miso, kombucha, or even just a probiotic pill. There are so many forms out there these days, there is no excuse to not get some probiotics in your diet. Read more about the benefits in the book.

Fiber

Fiber can help greatly when trying to lose weight. It helps you feel full, helps regulate blood sugar, help stop bad food cravings, helps you burn more calories with digestions since it takes more work to digest fiber and it reduces the incidence of certain cancers. Read more about fiber in the book. Psyllium Husk is a good, natural and healthy fiber choice.


Low Sugar Ingredients

Fruit and unsweetened almond milk or unsweetened soy milk are essentially the recommended low-sugar ingredients. Berries are the most recommended fruit.



THE TRANSITIONAL DAY FAST DIRECTIONS:

If you’re following the 17 day diet, it’s called “transitional day fast”. This fast is 1 day, and includes all 3 recipes below to eat, one for breakfast, one for lunch and one for dinner. You could also just have these weight loss smoothies recipes on any healthy clean eating diet if you wanted. They’re great for helping with weight loss.

You do not have to be following 17 day diet to do this smoothie fast or eat these weight loss smoothies. 

17 Day Diet breakthrough edition book for more info on the #17DayDiet - #HealthyHappySmart NOTE if you are following 17 day diet: In Dr. Mike Moreno’s book The 17 Day Diet Breakthrough Edition, he has introduced the 17 day diet transitional day fast. The fast consists of 3 weight loss smoothies you would drink in one day. This is optional, of course. And should be used when you finish one cycle, right before you start the next. Or you can use to to sort of refresh the diet, by doing the fast you’re resetting any “bad diet weekend” or “binge” you’ve had. According to Dr. Mike, it could also help boost your fat burning potential. There are 3 specific recipes in the book (listed below) that include ingredients with fat burning potential such as Whey Protein, Matcha Green Tea Powder, Probiotic Foods, Fiber, and Low-Sugar Ingredients.
