Smoothie Weight Loss Secrets
The more slowly you eat or drink the better when you are trying to lose weight. Savor each mouthful by eating your smoothie with a tablespoon over the course of ten or 15 minutes. Eating slowly is great for your digestive system and this is good practice for eating slowly throughout the rest of the day too.
Rinse out your glass and the blender with lots of warm water right away, and you will not have problems keeping your blender clean.
