Many Hollywood stars on the question of how they manage to stay slim, talk about miracle diets and cocktails for weight loss. It is unlikely that their experience can be used by ordinary women who do not have their own nutritionist and coach. After all, in order to lose weight, you need to make serious changes in your life: play sports, completely abandon harmful products, add useful products to your menu, get rid of bad habits, start looking at the world optimistically. Unfortunately, there is no quick way to get rid of excess weight for a long time, without damage to health. However, we can make it easier for ourselves with specially developed beverages. Delicious and healthy cocktails for weight loss will support during the diet, help to calm appetite, give vivacity, provide the body with the missing vitamins and trace elements and rid the toxins. Cooking cocktails for weight loss is very simple and interesting – replacing ingredients, adding new products for you, you will each time receive a new taste.
Cocktails for weight loss can be divided into 2 groups: detox-cocktails that improve digestion and help get rid of toxins, and nutritious protein shakes, the task of which quickly satisfy hunger without excess calories and replenish the stock of protein and carbohydrates expended in training. Detox-cocktails usually use juices, fresh or frozen berries, fruits, vegetables, herbs, spices, tea. This is a kind of salads in a liquid form. But from salads, they are characterized by the ease of mastering and the ability to eat much more useful products than in the whole species. If you find it difficult to eat, for example, whole beets or a bunch of parsley, turn them into a homogeneous puree with a blender, dilute with your favorite juice, yogurt or fresh berries, disguise the unusual taste of honey and drink to health. After the blender destroys the rigid cell membranes, vitamins and trace elements from the plants are digested much better. It should be remembered that detox-cocktails can contain strong acids and other active substances that stimulate digestion, so drinking them on an empty stomach is dangerous, the best time for acidic detox cocktails is 20-30 minutes after eating. If the cocktail contains no acids, you can drink it before meals. In any case, detox-cocktails can not be replaced by a meal. In these drinks there are no fats, very few proteins, and carbohydrates are for the most part indigestible fiber. You can lose weight on such a diet, but you will have to pay for it with health.
Another group – nutritious cocktails, usually contain proteins, fats and complex carbohydrates. They are prepared from various dairy products, nuts, seeds, avocados, bananas, vegetable oils. They also serve as an excellent source of vitamins and trace elements, but unlike detox-cocktails they perfectly satiate and permanently satisfy hunger, which is very important for those who are on a diet. Do not be afraid of high caloric content of these drinks. If you use quality natural products for their preparation, and before using this cocktail you jog or intensively exercise fitness, all calories will benefit – for building muscles, for feeding the brain and internal organs, for renewing skin cells. In these cocktails there is no the worst enemy of slimming – empty calories, which come straight to the fatty deposits. That is why protein cocktails can be considered as cocktails for weight loss – they saturate better than sweets and fast food, and at the same time do not contain anything harmful. Even the most high-calorie protein cocktail based on milk, bananas and nuts is much healthier than a low-calorie carbonated drink with chips. Let's remind once again: protein cocktails help to quickly lose weight only in a complex with physical exercises.
