An early lesson in my diet journey is that healthy does not equal good for weight loss.
The Innocent Smoothy is a perfect case study for this.
Is packed with fibre, vitamins, minerals. It hydrates. It tastes great.
But its also FULL of sugar and calories. Sometimes more sugar than a can of coke. And when it comes to losing weight, sugar is sugar is sugar. It doesn't matter - its all crammed full of calories.
The 1 litre Pineapple, Banana and Coconut, for example, has 730 calories!! I used to polish one of those off and feel like I'd just leaped off the treatmill.
No more. If you are on a proper diet - avoid all Smoothies! Sorry.
