Is this a good idea
« on: March 28, 2010, 08:34:44 PM »
Ok my boyfriend and I have been dating for about three years and over that time we have both seemed  to gain more than a few pounds. He wants to loose weight and he wants to start an all smoothie diet. Would this help him loose weight or is this a bad idea?

A smoothie diet can be useful in losing weight so it can be a good idea. But just because you are drinking "smoothies" doesn't automatically mean you will lose weight; you must consider the ingredients you put in them.

Drinking fresh green smoothies that are well balanced and nutrient full can help with weightloss but smoothies with dairy, sugar, fats and lost of carbohydrates may not be so helpful. Keep in mind that while what you eat is very important for losing weight, other factors such as how much you eat, exercise and rest are very important as well.
