Introducing at least one green thickie to your day can totally transform your health. Most people don’t get enough leafy greens, and drinking a green thickie is a great way to get your greens without having to taste or chew them. As part of a healthy balanced diet you may get the following health benefits with green smoothies:
1) Weight loss. Increasing the number of fruit and vegetables you eat in a day gives you body an opportunity to shed excess fat and water weight built up from toxins stored in the body. I lost 28 pounds of my baby weight mainly by drinking a green thickie for breakfast.
2) Weight gain. If you are trying to gain weight, it is much easier to add green thickies to your existing diet and drink your extra calories that you need to put on weight.
3) More energy. If you start the day with these green smoothies you will notice a massive increase in the amount of energy you have.
4) Mental clarity: Junk food, especially processed white flour and sugar can clog our minds making our brains feel cloudy. Drinking green thickies will clear your mind and free up your creativity so you can think more easily.
5) Crave less junk: When you increase the amount of healthy foods in your diet and decrease the unhealthy foods you will naturally stop craving junk food and crave more of the same healthy food. One green thickie for breakfast may well lead to another green thickie for lunch which is no bad thing.
6) Less snacking: A green thickie normally contains the right amount of calories for one healthy meal. And because the ingredients are generally low GI, they will keep your blood sugar levels low until lunch time helping you to cut out snacking altogether.
7) Improves skin. The amount of acne may reduce when you improve your diet by drinking more green thickies. It worked for me.
8) Lessens wrinkles: The increased fluids and power of natural foods in your diet will hydrate your skin and reduce your wrinkles making you look younger.
9) Reduce the risk of serious diseases: It is well known that one way of preventing cancer and heart disease is to increase the number of fruit and vegetables in your diet and decrease the amount of animal fats consumed. The more green thickies you drink, the lower your risk.
10) Improve your immunity to colds, flu and other bugs and feel generally amazing. After having a cold or the flu all winter long, I didn’t have a single bug for 3 years after introducing green smoothies to my diet.
11) Improve your digestion, detox and get your health off to a flying start today. My IBS totally cleared up after changing my diet. A green smoothie will be guaranteed to get everything moving in the morning.
12) Reduce other health complaints: Whatever health complaint you are suffering from, diet can have a dramatic effect on the severity of your symptoms. Try one green thickie a day for the next week and notice the difference in your own health.
