A Smoothie That Stops Cravings

Having a “feeling light” smoothie for breakfast, snack or meal is the most important balance-restoring step for many weight loss achievers.

This smoothie is a total infusion of essential vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, protein and fiber.  It is a great way to cut down on food cravings, because, with super-nutrition in the smoothie, you’re actually giving your body the nutrients it needs.

Some nutrition experts say that there is often a link between overeating and the levels of key chemicals in the brain.  Food can be used as self-medication because you are low on certain brain chemicals.  Your brain has to have these chemicals to function.  Your cravings, as well as depression, irritability, anxiety and many other emotional and mental problems are signs that your brain doesn’t have enough of them.

You can easily correct these deficiencies with nutrition that boost brain chemicals like dopamine (a natural energizer), endorphine (a natural painkiller) and serotonin (a sleep promoter). This nutrition will stop your cravings, soothe your emotional and mental problems, and start you on the road to permanent weight loss. Specifically, foods high in amino acids, the building blocks of protein, are important in eliminating food cravings – so you can address all the health problems that contribute to being overweight.

Eliminate your cravings for food, as well as your depression, anxiety, irritability, obsessiveness and mental dullness by putting the following smoothie ingredients in a blender, mix and drink:
