“In life, much like smoothies, you get what you put in.” – Anonymous
A smoothie should not only taste good, but it should also be good! Good for your body, good for your mind, and most importantly…good for your metabolism. Check out these smoothie ingredients that will boost your metabolism and increase your weight loss!
Medium-Chain Triglycerides (MCT) are a fatty acid that is extracted from coconut oil. As a result of them being “medium,” they are digested in the body faster and are known to aid in weight loss in a variety of ways. It speeds up the metabolism, reduces your appetite, and is known to decrease the circumference of your waistline. According to Dr. Mark Hyman, “It gets absorbed directly from the gut into the liver and doesn’t get stored as fat but rather burned quickly and turned into energy. For many patients, MCT becomes that little nudge to help you drop those last 10 to 15 stubborn pounds that just won’t go away.” Make sure to purchase MCT Oil that has 100% potency to maximize results.
P.S. Another benefit of MCT Oil is the fact that it increases mental clarity and helps you focus!
Directions: Add 2 tbsp. of MCT Oil to your smoothie
Green Coffee Bean Extract
Did you know that before coffee beans are roasted, they are green? Yes! Roasting coffee beans strip them of a lot of their chlorogenic acid, which is the chemical that is responsible for the weight loss. Make sure to purchase a green coffee bean supplement that is standardized to 50% chlorogenic acid to maximize weight loss benefits!
Directions: Add 1200-1500mg of green coffee bean extract to your smoothie.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a polyunsaturated fatty acid that is related to the family of omega-6 fatty acids. CLA is known to reduce body fat, specifically stomach fat. Make sure to purchase a potent CLA product to heighten your results.
Directions: Add 2-3.5g of CLA syrup or powder to your smoothie.
