4 Best Zero Belly Smoothies For Weight Loss

4 Best Zero Belly Smoothies For Weight Loss

Simple, immediate and stress free. That’s what Zero Belly is designed to be: a plan that pays off for you quickly. And that’s why smoothies are such an important part of the Zero Belly plan: they’re packed with protein, fiber and healthy fats—and ready in just 90 seconds!

Bryan Wilson, a Zero Belly test panelist who lost 19 pounds and 6 inches off his waist in just 6 weeks, counts the drinks as one of the key components of his success: “I’m a sweets craver and can’t get enough ice cream, ever,” he says. “These were a far better alternative.”

And, because they’re plant-based, these smoothies will help ensure you’re getting the nutrients you need to shut off your fat genes—in particular fiber and resveratrol (both found in abundance in red fruits, nut butters and dark chocolate)—and reduce the inflammation that can turn them back on. In fact, researchers at Baylor College of Medicine found that dieters who drank 8 ounces of plant-based juices a day over 12 weeks lost, on average, 4 pounds more than dieters following the exact same plan, but without the drinks.
