Healthy Smoothie Recipes For Weight Loss

Most people think the word “DIET” means “Do I Eat Today?” and they couldn’t be any farther from the truth. Diet is not simply about what you exclude but what you include. Sometimes a healthy diet means filling your stomach with calories that actually matter. You can eat 500 calories of potato chips and you would get hungry sooner than 500 calories of sweet potatoes. It’s all about maximizing the food you eat.
