Smoothies have had a profound impact on my life. Is it odd that a bunch of blended plants can have a huge impact on a person’s life? Perhaps, at first glance, it’s a little strange. After learning the reasons why smoothies have had such a big impact on my life, though, you may begin to understand how mashed fruits and vegetables can change the lives of their consumers. 🙂
Smoothies Helped Me Defeat Acne
Acne is a condition that many people deal with. While the condition of acne itself is relatively harmless, the mental effects can be crippling for one’s self esteem. This can result in depression and avoidance behavior, which in turn affects relationships, school, social life, and just about every other aspect of the acne sufferer’s life.
Usually a person suffering from acne will try over-the-counter topical treatments, and/or go to a doctor and receive a prescription for antibiotics, lotions, or even accutane. While these products may alleviate the symptoms of acne, the underlying inflammatory disease still exists. Acne is a battle that needs to be won internally.
While smoothies are a great weight loss tool, they can also be tweaked to accommodate an individual who wants to gain weight. Usually when someone wants to gain weight, they would like to gain lean mass, aka muscle. The smoothie is the perfect ‘food’ for weight gain; it is packed with nutrients, and can provide the necessary calories and protein to facilitate lean mass gain.
It is important to eat healthy when gaining weight. If the goal is to gain muscle, eating a bunch of big macs and chicken nuggets will not give you the energy or the nutrition your body needs to gain muscle. Training to gain weight causes small tears in your muscles. Your body needs protein and nutrients to build them back up; not a bunch of saturated fat.
Smoothies for weight gain provide you with all of the nutrition you need. They can be made high in protein and calories, while still remaining a nutrient-dense treat. I recommend eating a healthy meal with lean protein and vegetables, and using a smoothie as a sort of dessert. They are also great for after a workout.
Have you tried every under the sun to flatten your belly, only to see all of your efforts go to waste? If so, don’t get down on yourself. Many others, including myself, have been in the same position. Through my own experience and the experience of others, I have put together a few tips about flat belly exercises that really work. These exercises may be different than what you would expect to get a flat stomach, but I can assure you that if you follow them, your belly will be as flat as you want it to be.
Before I actually delve into the flat belly exercises, I want to issue a word of caution; this is not easy. I don’t care what you’ve seen or read in magazines or online – there is no “easy” way to get six pack abs or a flat stomach. While the actual concept behind the work is simple, doing the work is far from easy. It takes great effort and determination. If you came here looking to lose 10 pounds in 3 days, or turn an XXL belly into a six pack in two weeks with just 20 minutes a day, you are in the wrong place. If you came here with a positive attitude, some motivation, and a willingness to succeed, then you will do just fine 🙂 .
