Looking to kick start your diet? Smoothies are a great way to do so. With these top diet Nutribullet Recipes, you can get your diet going by using the recipes as meal replacements for select meals. For example, you can replace breakfast with a healthy smoothie and then eat a healthy lunch and dinner. Or, for an even greater diet kick start, replace two meals with smoothies.
When choosing Nutribullet recipes for dieting, look for recipes that include a fair amount of protein in the mix. Protein will help fill you up and will not go straight to your waist the way sugars and carbs might. Yes, it can be tempting to look just for low calorie smoothie recipes, but that isn’t going to do you any good if you just get hungry again an hour later. This is especially important for breakfast, where filling up early in the day has been shown to cut cravings and binge eating later. Nuts, yogurt, and soy are great ways to add protein to your smoothies.
Also consider fiber. Fiber from ingredients such as oats will help keep you full which being a healthier carb than many commercial breakfast items.
I also don’t recommend replacing all meals with smoothies. Doing so could cut calories too low and lead to rebound weight gain. But using smoothies for a meal or two each day can be a nice way to get your diet off to the right start.
