Does drinking fruit smoothies help you lose weight?
Adding healthy fruit smoothies made with whole, healthy ingredients can be a useful tool in losing weight. However, make sure you are keeping your portion in check (8 oz, or 1 cup is a serving for a smoothie).
Also remember to add plenty of good sources of lean protein, limit processed foods, limit refined sugar and stay at a consistent and reasonable calorie deficit for your weight.
